We’ve just returned from the most magical 2 weeks away in Avignon and Cannes in the South of France and then a long break in London ( soo lucky) and now I have a severe case of the post-holiday blues! *insert wailing face emoji*
We’re a family of nomads and exploring the globe is one of our greatest passions in life and long may it continue (crosses fingers and toes).
In particular, the South of France will always a hold a special place in my heart. Having holidayed there as a kid, I instantly fell in love with the region and have so many cherished memories from our family vacays from when I was young.
In recent years, I’ve headed to the Cote D’Azur for my annual ‘champagne-fuelled’ pilgrimage to the Cannes International Film Festival as part of my work as an award-winning filmmaker and now blogger and vlogger.
With such a strong affinity to the South of France, I couldn’t wait to take my own kids there and the holiday totally lived up to , infact, it surpassed – my expectations!
I was overcome with emotion watching my own little ones explore Avignon and Cannes, the latter as I had done as a kid – soaking up the culture, enjoying new food and even picking up bits of the language.
And it was, of course, a chance for us all to relax. Switching off from work and other commitments and just be at one with each other. Chilling out in the park, tucking into Pain Au Chocolat by the river, espresso in the square…these are the moments I’ll treasure for the rest of my life. Dramatic but true!
Holidays are all about escaping the worries and stresses of everyday life, which is why it is so important that you take out quality travel insurance before you go.
As any parent will agree, travelling with small kids in tow can be pretty stressful; however – to quote Jay-Z – I’ve got 99 problems but my travel insurance ain’t one! OK Jay Z didn’t say that but you get me!
That’s because we always opt for Holidaysafe and ahead of this summer’s vacay we took out their family travel insurance package which offers us complete peace of mind whilst we were away.
Developed specifically with families in mind, this policy guarantees covers all the family essentials such as buggies, car seats and strollers, plus cancellation and emergency medical cover. It’s one of the few specialist family policies on the market and you can read all about it here.

Active families will also benefit from automatic cover for 100 sports and activities as well as winter sports packages as well.
Making a claim is quick and easy too. Their UK-based call centres are all in-house guaranteeing you instant access to those that can help.
