The Blog

Launched in early 2016 as a ‘go to’ site for travellers and holidaymakers alike, My Life-Long Holiday is a collection of travel guides and advice for weekend breaks, day trips and city breaks in the UK and Europe. It’s a travel blog with soul.

Hi, I’m Alex, founder of My Life-Long Holiday blog. I’m a 43 year old mum of 3 and we get to travel a fair bit, with and without the kids. So, if you want to read about Holiday Spots and Travel Tips, mostly for the UK and Europe, then you’ve come to the right place! I try to capture the details, background and often hidden gems in a narrative that conveys the heart and soul of a place, to inspire travel and wanderlust. I fall in love with everywhere, because everywhere is lovely in some way!

I am originally from the North-East of England but now live in Nottingham and I am so passionate about this wonderful city – my friends often ask me for suggestions and recommendations on places to eat and drink, or where to take the kids so this inspired the section of my blog that focuses on Nottingham.

So, “Hello”. It’s good to have you here! Please subscribe for the latest travel guides as they roll out, and please stay in touch – I’d love to hear from you!
