Not all vacations are created equally and some are much more children friendly. You should enjoy certain places and things without kids ruining your good times. Adventure and toddlers usually don’t mix, neither do relaxing and parenting.  Take an adult vacation before you have children and you can thank me later.

Maybe you should try and go on a few adventures acting like children before you decide to have children yourself. We advise you take these vacations before you have kids so you can fully enjoy each experience.

 

Napa Valley Wineries

The ultimate adult only vacation destination, Napa Valley is made for middle aged adults.  There are over 250 wineries in Napa Valley and none of them are really kid-friendly. Sipping wine and keeping an eye on hyperactive children don’t usually go together, so maybe you should leave the little ones at home. People go to Napa Valley to enjoy nature, wine and relaxing vibrations. Go on adult vacations without children let you actually unwind and have some naughty fun. Sure vacations with your ids are fun, but come on, who wants kids in Napa?

Paris

Romance and changing diapers usually don’t go hand in hand so why visit the most romantic city in the world with children in tow? Wine, romance and late nights make up a great Paris trip and these are hard activities to do with children. There should be no kids ruining the love on your Parisian adventure. The sites in Paris aren’t the most child friendly wither, what kids want to go to museums and stand in line for hours to go up in the Eiffel Tower? Definitely check out Paris without little ones and fully enjoy the city.  Taking an adult only vacation to Paris is the only way to see the city.

 

Iceland

Iceland is a country full of adventure, intrigue and some dangerous locations, making it the perfect adult only vacation. Hiking an active volcano and scuba diving aren’t your typical child friendly activities. Glaciers may be exciting adventures but not when you are toting a toddler through sharp, jagged ice caves. Enjoy the splendor of Iceland before you have kids or leave them with the in-laws and get some alone time. 

Monte Carlo

Much like Vegas but much classier, Monte Carlo is centered around gambling and nightlife, two things that don’t mix well with little kids. Adults can enjoy the James Bond type resorts and classy evenings on the town. The French Riviera where Monte Carlo sits has long been known as a romantic and glamorous destination so why ruin that vibe with children?

 

Tokyo

Tokyo is a mega metropolis that feels like a utopian future, so why bring kids to ruin that fantasy. Haha, I kid, children are great, but they aren’t perfect for every trip. Tokyo is super crowded and if you have every tried to get kids through a big crowd it can be a nightmare, so avoid that hassle and ditch the kids.  Make your Tokyo trip an adult only destination and you won’t be sorry. 

Dubai

Dubai is the playground for the rich and famous in the Middle East, and it’s not a kid friendly vacation destination. The luxury hotels offer glitz and glamour at the highest end and you know exactly who doesn’t enjoy fancy things? Kids neither enjoy nor respect fancy and fabulous things, so keep the finer things in life away form their dirty little hands. Let your kids enjoy Mickey Mouse and you enjoy the Jewel of the United Arab Emirates.

Britons Get Stuck Abroad Due to COVID-19 Travel Restrictions

Published

on

Britons get stuck offshore as they await the lifting of the recently imposed travel ban to and from the UK.

Many Britons get stuck abroad due to the recent travel bans imposed. Worries related to taxes, jobs, and Brexit get exacerbated as UK residents are forced to have lengthier stays in their current locations.

As more and more nations start imposing travel restrictions to and from the United Kingdom, more and more Britons get stuck in their present locations offshore. To halt the spread of the recently pinpointed highly communicable strain of COVID-19 virus, UK travel has come into a standstill.

23-year-old Heather Alder, a resident of Edinburg, went to Aarhus, Denmark with her fiancé last week. They had to visit her fiancé’s father and take him to do several tests for cancer. Alder and her fiancé were planning to go back to the UK this week but are now stuck in a farmhouse in Denmark due to the recent travel ban. “Even if the travel ban is lifted in a few days or weeks, we don’t know whether we can leave and we don’t know whether we can get back in easily,” Alder mentions.

Alder was able to secure a new job last month and she is grateful that her new boss has been so kind as to allow her to travel to Denmark. “My father-in-law’s house is about as remote as Denmark gets, so we’ve had to install new WIFI in order to be able to work from here. My boss has been wonderful about it all, but my partner is studying and working part-time for a Danish company, but pays tax in the UK. If we get stuck here for longer, we might have to report it, and he could end up having to pay tax in Denmark, where income tax is at 48%. This would have a big impact on our finances. It’s very stressful,” she shares.

The Brexit deadline is on 31 December 2020 and Alder does not know whether or not she will have to apply for a Denmark visa in case she will be forced to stay in the country for a longer period of time. “It’s very concerning that on top of everything, I now need to sort out my status here before Brexit. Due to Christmas closures, that means submitting documentation so I can apply as an EU citizen for the right to stay by 23 December. Nobody seems to have an answer as to what Britons in Denmark should do in the new year. Obviously, all our documents are in the UK, where we can’t return, which is making the whole process maddening and extremely worrying. The combination of Brexit and coronavirus has turned what was already a difficult situation into an unmanageable one,” Alder says.

The recent travel bans have caused further strain on many UK residents who are presently out of the country. Many of them complain about the need to go back to the UK in time for the resumption of work after the holidays. Nonetheless, Britons get stuck abroad and have to deal with the necessity of securing extended visas in their present locations and seek ways to do virtual ‘work-from-home’ arrangements while awaiting the lifting of the said travel ban.
