Not all of us will be jetting off to warmer climates this year. Unfortunately, most of us have seen our holidays cancelled, postponed and some of us indefinitely. Many of us are now looking for alternatives to our usual summer break because although the UK and Europe plan to allow holidays from July (rumoured) a lot of families have decided that a stay at home holiday could be just as enjoyable.
Since the end of March, all non-essential travel has been postponed indefinitely with no date yet set to when these travel restrictions will ease. What will this mean for holidays already booked? Or for those wanting to book trips either abroad or in the UK? There will be so much more worth considering before you book your post lockdown holiday.

Challengers provide inclusive play and leisure opportunities across the South East. It is a place where disabled children and young people can access fun activities in a safe and organised environment. Charities are struggling right now; no one could have foreseen the extent that Covid-19 could have on such vital services to many. So, I decided that I should write a blog post for why I feel we should be supporting charities like Challengers.
Wow! May! It feels like one hell of a year already! I’ve been a little bit quiet on the blog front the last couple of months, what with working from home, being a teacher and trying to maintain some kind of exercise it’s been a touch few months. I had a few posts written but given the pandemic that we are currently in the middle of, it didn’t feel right to share my holiday packing tips or my top recommendations for a weekend away with the girls when most people are having their holidays postponed or cancelled including our own spring break. I wanted to share with you how we are getting on during this covid-19 so this is The Cantan Chronicles: What Happened in March & April.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you will know that we spent our summer holiday in Disneyland Paris last year, below is a link to all my previous posts should you want to check out Disneyland Paris Trip Report 2019. Originally, I had this idea of just doing a general packing post. However, I decided it made more sense to split it into different posts as there was far too much to cover in one post. This post is all about what I packed in my disabled son’s hand luggage and perhaps offering some ideas of what sort of things to buy and where.
Now, you are probably expecting me to be one of those extremely organised parents that has a full structured timetable and a routine. I wish that were true! So here we are Convid-19 or coronavirus as it is also known, we are in self-isolating mode and lockdown with a special needs child. Didn’t see that on my list of 2020.
I don’t know about you but I’ve always found the travel days the most stressful due to various reasons. You find yourself rushing around, trying to squeeze a few more rides in, buy a few more pins and rush onto whatever mode of transport you decided on. We actually decided to have a chilled out, no rush, take it as it comes. So this is our Disneyland Paris Trip Report – Day 4.
