Looking at the idyllic Holidays by Simpson Travel is like finding a piece of paradise. Hot sunshine, golden sands and crystal blue waters. I can almost taste the tropical cocktails and smell the coconut fragrance of the suncream as I write this.
However, if you look past the beautiful hotels and the variety of idyllic countries that you can explore, what is Simpson Travel really offering?
For me, Simpson Travel are offering the most fabulous gift of all, one that you simply cannot put a price on. They are giving you the most amazing gift of time.
With working and school commitments, nursery and after school activities, time is simply used up without a second thought. Life for us, and no doubt most families, is busy, frantic even. We count down the days until the weekend, exhausted and desperate for a little down time. Before we know it, our time is up and it’s back on the treadmill of life. I think it’s only now that I’m a Mother that I realise how precious time is.
So, when it comes to choosing a holiday, we take it very seriously. Two special weeks that we look forward to all year around. The one time of year we get to step away from the daily grind with no real routine. Our list of what we need from a holiday is long and we all have particular demands.
We all want family friendly hotels, long sandy beaches and plenty of activities.
As parents, we need to feel safe, allowing us to enjoy our time together as a family without worrying.
I want to be able to spend time with my husband, I want to talk to him and plan with him without the constant interruptions. I want to take my eye off the ball just for a couple of hours, to fully switch off and relax, safe in the knowledge the children are happy and cared for. I want to teach my girls to swim, I want to listen to them read without having one eye on the clock. I want to watch my three children grow together.
My husband wants to explore, he wants a holiday a little different, somewhere off the beaten track, full of character and culture and, ideally, to be on the west coast for fabulous sunsets.
And what about the girls? Well, currently, Meme and Harri want to play, they want to build sandcastles and dance on the beach, swim in the pool at every opportunity and stay up late playing with new found friends.
With the variety of idyllic hand picked locations, an opportunity to choose the perfect hotel or villa and a personalised service to help find the perfect destination, I think it’s clear that our family needs a Simpson Travel holiday. If that wasn’t enough, renowned quality, availability of creches with fully qualified nannies and a passion, knowledge and appreciation of how important a holiday is to families like us makes Simpson Travel a clear choice.
