It has definitely been a beach filled Autumn for the boy and I. Less than 24 hours after returning from Bali we jetted off to sunny Phuket for another dose of sand and sea. I was blown away when we set foot at Anantara Layan Phuket, and was immediately engulfed into the sanctuary that is their refreshing resort. Relaxation hit my bones instantaneously and their warm welcome to my family and I made the experience that much better. Exaggeration is not in play when I state there was not a single grass or tree out of place. Each corner, seat, and space in the resort is optimised to make you feel zen and free. Instead of overly decadent, I felt the place was very natural yet luxurious which lets be honest is much more my style. We spent our days enjoying the private plunge pool in our pool villa, sampling mouthwatering and fiery Thai cuisine at Dee Plee, indulgent breakfasts on the terrace, dips in the ocean view infinity pool, and walks during sunset along their deserted beach. We had an abundance of privacy and left recharged and content. I will definitely be returning next time I need a little break from reality.

It’s been awhile and I somehow didn’t notice. I’m going to learn to be better on here. Pinky swear…take more pics, post more pics 😉
Lately it’s all about planning two beach holidays happening in about a week and keeping up with daily date nights and an almost crawling baby. I need to spin this week and get my holiday wardrobe in full gear.
Travelling with a baby, especially your first, can be one of the most daunting tasks as a parent. I envisioned angry passengers glaring at our screaming baby and explosive diapers stinking up the entire plane. Not to mention embarrassing experiences with public breastfeeding and selecting the ideal baby friendly restaurants. We went through all of this and more on our recent three week excursion to Europe and although it wasn’t as bad as we had feared we managed to learn a few invaluable lessons along the way.
