One of the surprising advantages I have discovered to having little ones, is the opportunity to properly discover this lovely island that we live on. I really love to travel, and before children visited so many exciting countries. I have to admit that I hardly knew the UK at all though; I had never traveled further north in England than Birmingham, and not further east than London. Quite shocking considering I have lived in this country my entire life!
So, I decided to make the most of these years, where having small children discourages me from jumping on a plane, and to explore the beautiful country around me. Since Mia was born, we have had some wonderful UK-based holidays. We have explored Kent and Sussex in an old VW campervan, stayed inside the North York Moors national park in a wooden cabin in the forest, and taken many trips to south Cornwall.
Next week, we are off to stay in Woodbridge, Suffolk, and I am so looking forward to discovering a new coastline, and a whole area of the country. I cannot wait to visit old seaside towns, the Sutton Hoo site, and famous candy-colour beach huts at Southwold. And if the sun comes out, that will be amazing too!
Any recommendations for where to visit and what to see in Suffolk? I’d love to hear!
PS. I know that flying with little ones is totally possible (and we have taken Mia on a short-ish flight), but personally I find it a bit too stressful, so maybe in a few years, when I’m feeling brave enough! x
