Family holiday dreams

Now that the twins are two weeks old I’ve started to look ahead to summer and next fall. I’d like to go for a family holiday but where to?

My son was little under one year on his first trip abroad. First we did a day trip to Estonia and then traveled to Switzerland. Couple of months later we traveled to Italy. And when he was little under two we went to Portugal and then to Denmark. In Denmark I was already pregnant with the twins and suffered from heavy morning sickness. We didn’t travel after that during the pregnancy.

I think I’d be ready to go again. Maybe during the fall when the twins are a bit older and the weather in Finland is depressing. But where should we go? This is my criteria:

  • Nice weather
  • Destination with beach
  • Short flight
  • Good quality-price ratio
  • Easy with kids (hotel without stairs, breakfast included, room with a balcony..)


I have never been to Greece and I’d love to go! I only have this stupid fear that we will just find some tourist resorts and no genuine culture or good restaurants. Probably that’s not problem at all and I will feel stupid after visiting the beautiful islands. What I’ve heard the Greek islands are a very easy and beautiful destination with perfect weather and good food. I think we should definitely go there.


I have never been there either! I think that Croatia is a very hip destination at the moment, isn’t it? I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t know much about Croatia.  It would be interesting to learn about their history and language though I’m not sure if I have the time at the moment. If I’m not mistaken, I think that Croatia is a little more affordable than the other European destinations that I’m thinking about. Good value for money is always something to look for.


I have traveled quite a lot in Spain and to be honest I’m not a big fan. With the kids I value sun, good food, easiness and short flight and Spain covers all that so maybe I should give it another chance. I also speak some Spanish which usually makes things a little bit easier. Maybe we should go to some of the islands? or Costa del Sol?


I always end up in Italy. I love that country. I have lived there for a while and visited it multiple times. One of my dreams is to have a second home in Italy. I would travel there every winter when Finland is too cold and dark. Anyways last time we went to Verona and Lake Garda. This time I’m thinking about the islands Sardegna or Sicily. I seem to have a thing with islands this time. 😀

These pictures are from our holiday in Lake Garda, Italy 2015.
