A London family bucket list

Earlier this year we booked our first family holiday as a 3 and it’s now given me the itch to book another family break. I’ve been looking at places to visit and would absolutely love to go back to London now we are 3 and take Freya to some of the sites. (Yes I’m aware she won’t remember much at this age but that’s not the point). So it got me thinking and I wanted to put together a little bucket list of top attractions to visit in London that are perfect for the family.

What I do with my travel photos once I’ve returned home

As we creep ever closer to the due date of our first child, it’s got us thinking about photos an storage options as no doubt we will take endless snaps of our little one once she arrives.

This realisation that we need to purchase a bigger hard drive for said photos got me reminiscing over our old snaps from the 9 years we’ve been together and in particular, some of our holiday snaps.

Destination 2¬†conveniently got in touch around the same time (a very strange coincidence I will just confirm)¬†and asked me what exactly I did with those holiday snaps and whether I printed them out or stored them in albums or photo frames. They’ve recently found some stats when it comes to travel photos and I thought I’d share them with you below:

“29 per cent admit to leaving snaps on the computer. A further 29 per cent admit to not doing anything with them at all while over 14 per cent go as far as putting them in a separate folder on their phone.

When it came to making hard copies of the images, only 12.5 per cent of holidaymakers make the effort to get them printed. The remainder of us either create an album on our phones or share them on social media.”

I will be completely honest and say that I am in that 29% who leave their snaps on their computer as well as not making hard copies either.

Jardin de Cactus Lanzarote

I know, I know. Laura what are you playing at still putting holiday blog posts up almost 3 months after you went on holiday! To be truthful, I’m useless and because we moved into our house when we got back, I just never got round to posting some of them.

This little feature is one of the touristy bits we did during our trip to Lanzarote. We hired a car for 2 days and drove about an hour to the top of the island and then on the way back we stopped off at Jardin de Cactus. The garden was designed by none other than Cesar Manrique who has heavily influenced the island as a whole. I love Cacti so this was an hour well spent for me and even my fiance enjoyed it as well. Here are some of the snaps that I got whilst there.

I know this has been more of a photo post than anything else but I just wanted to share how truly beautiful this place is. I found it really peaceful and calming walking round and am so glad we made the effort to go and visit it whilst there. If you go to Lanzarote then it is a definite must see and I will try to share a few more holiday posts soon with some of the other tourist sites to venture to.

Thanks for stopping by
