Last February, Dan and I spent three days in Disneyland Paris at the end of the UK half term. We met at the end of February in 2016, so the trip to Disney somewhat served as an anniversary holiday. I won’t repeat my top tips for going as you can read them here, but what I will do is track […]
Well, not that big… We booked a holiday! As well as our trip to Edinburgh, which is less about seeing Edinburgh and more about Dan running a marathon, we have taken the plunge and splashed out on a trip outside of Europe.
