So we have come to the end of the summer and now starting to think shall I book up for some sunshine for this half term, I have put together some destinations and facts to hopefully help you decide.
The best and closest place to visit with a warm Atlantic climate and hot air coming from Africa is The Canary Islands (Lanzarote, Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Fuerteventura) but some of them are warmer than others. The closest to the desert like Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura benefit the most from the warm air. There is an average of 19C for all the Islands but Gran Canaria is the warmest at this time of year with highs of up to 26-29C and still with a warm sea temperature of 22C which is the warmest it will be all year. You also have the wind/breeze with The Canary Islands that make it more pleasurable when the heat is at its highest. Cyprus and Kos have highs of 26C so this is still a very nice temperature to enjoy, Kos would be a better option as Greece is more reasonable price wise. Morocco is fantastic with highs of 28.3C along with Egypt with similar temperatures. If you are looking to go further afield then there is a lot more destinations to explore, Cancun is beautiful with highs of 32C, Rio is also another contender with highs of 26C. Jamaica, Bali, Thailand, Barbados, St Lucia all have highs of 31-32C so a lot more to choose from. The only option with Worldwide and half term is you have a longer flight with a shorter stay in resort.

I thought I would write a short blog for people who haven't yet booked their holidays. Prices now are starting to rise from one minute to the next and holidays are getting booked up quick.
Spain is one that is really pricey now, everyone books up early to go somewhere "safe" so the flight prices alone have rocketed. If you are looking for a cheap deal for a week the likes of Portugal, Turkey, Tunisia, Greece and even the Canary Islands have some great deals available.
A family of 4 to Turkey for example is roughly coming out at £1300 self catering total which is fantastic!
With this weather do we need to go abroad? Don't forget there are fantastic holiday parks/cottages all over in the UK that start as little as £180 for 7 nights.
I am still sharing deals for this year so keep an eye out on my page or send me a message and I can take a look for you.
Thank you for reading
Back in 2015 a school in Wales had the best idea for all parents. They put together the inset days for the year and gave parents 5 days off but not in school holidays. This allowed them to book a holiday without paying a high price and the Travel Operators can't pick up on this to. So why can't all the schools do this?
On most websites it states that most schools are allowed up to 5 inset days and that it is down to each school to choose which days. Being a mum of 3 myself I know how hard it is, I really dislike giving higher costs out to my clients in school time as I don't think Airlines/Tour Operators should be able to make money on quality family time you will never get back! Not all parents and families can afford high prices and end up having to take their children out of school in term time which usually involves the parent getting fined and not to mention the child missing out on school work.
I don't quite know how to start this but I am thinking if all of us mum's go to our schools and put this to them it may work and may help the school too, this is the newspaper article for your information -
Lets see if we can beat these prices and all have a holiday that we deserve for the right price.
Please keep me updated if you decide to challenge your school :)
Bye for now
