  • Our Mexican honeymoon

    December 2, 2017 Hels

    Two days after our wedding, Sam and I flew to Cancun in Mexico.

It was such a lovely week, although holidaying with a baby does not lend itself to a chilled, relaxing week by the pool! We went to Carvoeiro in the Algarve. It was actually where Sam and I went for our babymoon (i.e an excuse to go on holiday before Dougie was born) but we loved it before and had been struck by how family-friendly it…
