Dreaming of Summer with ClickStay and Trunki (Giveaway)


After a lovely, slow start to the year, with lots of time spent at home, I can feel the pull once more. I promised myself, after a busy year of travel last year, that I would wait until I really felt the urge to leave the country. I wasn’t going to leave again in 2015, but then Bologna absolutely came calling. Looking back at this picture at Heathrow, before we flew to Miami, I am dreaming of summer and working out where. Suggestions on a postcard please!

9yo L is the first to pack a case this year, and this time she is travelling without us. She is off on a 2 night residential in the Peak District with school and couldn’t be more excited. We spent this weekend shopping for bits and pieces she needed.

We do have some exciting family holiday plans in the pipeline, in the UK, but I know from experience it won’t be long before we are all thinking further afield. Looking on the ClickStay website – after they invited me to host a giveaway with them, and Trunki –  has made me hungry for sunshine. Today, you could win a Trunki suitcase and a £50 Clickstay Voucher to use against your holiday.

Clickstay have 100os of holiday villas, apartments and rentals worldwide. From finding private pools to family friendly to places near the beach, golf or boat hire, ClickStay have lots of ideas for your next trip.

Trunki make fabulous ride on suitcases for kids. We have lots of happy memories of travelling with ours.

Look at this sea, it is making me want a holiday so badly!


Trunki sent us a Zimba the Zebra Trunki. My plan was to give it to Mr G, who has seriously put his Trunkisaurus through it’s paces – it’s more stunt vehicle than suitcase – and broken it. But L loved the Zebra so much when it arrived she offered him her Moshi Monsters Trunki, which means he now technically has two Trunkis and a whole new stunt routine, and L has a new suitcase for her school residential.
