My Dream Holiday...

~ Posted on Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at 9:35 PM ~

As a SAHM, one of the things I look forward to is taking a short break from home, to be away with my family on a holiday. You have no idea how hectic and tiring it is being stuck at home all day, 24 hours, 7 days a week and 365 days a year! To be able to get away from the house even just for a few days is a blessing really!

Currently, I would check with my husband's work schedule (he has his own IT business) and then plan for our family holidays months in advance, usually a 3 days 2 nights trip and I would book for a hotel stay which is family-friendly and near to the places of interests particularly beach area and with lots of good places with delicious food to eat!

Our most recent family trip during the Mother's Day celebration is more like one of those Hotel breaks, where again was planned few months in advance. But this time it is much more relaxed and other than venturing out for food, we practically spend most of the time in our hotel and at the beach.

I feel the entire trip we had is more of a relaxed manner as we just focus on chilling and spending time enjoying the views and hotel facilities. Despite the short trip, I definitely enjoyed the holiday and look forward for more to come!

Of course, given the chance and in time (surely, need to think positive!), I would like to take a longer break and perhaps go for overseas holiday. I chanced upon this website with details on City breaks in the UK which seems very interesting! I have some friends staying in UK and I would like to make UK one of the places to visit in future (apart from Hong Kong, Sweden and Italy or Spain perhaps?)

Back to UK, I have a friend who stays in London and I've not been hearing from him for a long long time. We used to joke about us going there to travel and staying at his place and he even offered to bring us around for sightseeing. Sigh... how I wish that day will come soon! I do miss getting news from him!

With air travel getting more affordable nowadays, I think it will be possible for this plan to materialise one day, provided my kids are older and easier to manage then.

What about you? Do you have any favorite places that you travel to?

gosh, I totally understand how important it is to take a break from kids and house chores! I admire you a lot, as I do not think I can cope with like as a SAHM! I would get hair wire in no days! I would need to go shopping once in a two days when I'm not working.
And ya, I really wanna go for a vacation too!!!!! I'm not greedy, Cameron Highland will do, some places that are cool~


I agree that it is always a treat to get away with the kids.  Have you ever been to Nantucket?  It has wonderful beaches and tons of kid friendly activities.  The Maria Mitchell Organization offers many nature-oriented outdoor outings for families with children.  Check out my blog to read about some  of the fun I've had with my own family on Nantucket over the years.  Happy traveling!

Hey Jani!
I've suggested CH to hubby before but other than the cold weather, nothing much exciting there for the kids to play with - so we ended up always go Penang! Tong

Hi Liz!
Thanks for sharing your comment and site!

With 7 kids in the house, we prefer to stay local- and a favourite spot is the Sunshine Coast (Qld Australia) We figure with such wonderful holiday spots so close by it is unneccessary to travel anyway. Smile
