London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies
It’s been over 10 years since we don’t celebrate Christmas at home or in any traditional sort of way. 2005 we started our Christmas getaway holidays in Cuba and being spoilt with 7 years old rum, white beaches and amazing diving, we decided that’s the way to go. So here’s our Chrexit guide and extensive list for best Christmas holiday destinations for families and adults only.
In Havana we’ve been particularly spoilt at Christmas with a Buena Vista Social Club in Hotel National – one of the best Xmas presents to ourselves up to these days!
And technically since then we alternated though Xmas and NYE exotic places with a great track record. After Havana, there was Brazil, followed by a very hot Xmas on a safari in Kenya and a cold NYE ski filled in Kitzbuhel.
Thereafter Hawaii – Maui for Xmas, Oahu NYE.
Followed by Thailand – Koh Samui.
Afterwards Xmas in Guatemala and NYE in Mexico.
Christmas getaway holidays continued with the first babymoon in Bequia, West Indies both Christmas and NYE.
And once kids were around we kept on going and dragging them with us : Abu Dhabi, one of the best Christmas holiday destinations for families.
And St Vincent, Grenadines – second babymoon.
Chrexit by now is not only very fashionable but quite an established term, hence our Chrexit guide. 2016 we decided to try something different and London was lovely and relatively deserted given the amount of Chrexiters. We caught up very shortly after on the winter sun in Mauritius!
2017 we were back on the road & to our Christmas getaway holidays : Maldives with friends and Banyan Tree Angsana Velavaru. And Santa came to town via a Catamaran! As one may easily picture this has been the best Christmas holiday destinations for families acording to my kids!
For the Non-Chrexiters choosing to stay in London, there are tones of festive fun, our favourites classics are: Christmas at Kew, Father Christmas at the Hall, Iceskating Natural History Museum or Queens Skate Dine and Bowl. And if you’re really stuck and in need of more ideas, Kidsorted comes as usual at parents rescue!
Merry Chrexit to you all and Happy New You – last part improvised last year by our 3 years old !
