Many of us are becoming more conscious about how we can live our lives and flying off to sunny beaches is not always easy to justify. Personally, I feel there is a grey area when it comes to travel and doing the ‘right’ thing. After all, lots of economies are completely supported by tourism and there are endless benefits to travelling with your children and immersing yourselves in a different culture.

Yes, life is expensive and just because a holiday overseas is not on the cards every year you can still have a vacation, a staycation.
