Family Holiday in Turkey 2016 (IC Hotels Santai Family Resort)

It all feels like a dream now. No wonder, I am proper late with this post (what’s new ha ha). Nevertheless, our holiday in Turkey (back in September) was great. Probably that’s why it went so fast. We would have happily stayed for at least another week. But, oh well, all good things come to an end…

We booked our Turkey holiday about 4-5 months prior the actual trip and it seemed we had ages to wait!

I am not even gonna talk about holiday shopping and packing today. Trust me, it is a nightmare to pack yourself + 3 kids for a week. I am tend to think I might need EVERYTHING when it comes to packing. I would probably take the whole entire house if I could. But then there is a very limited space in luggages (even though we bought 20kg extra suitcase and had 1 hand luggage each). So at the end I had to somehow make those important packing decisions and to only pick the stuff that we could definitely not survive without.

So finally, the morning of so much waited 16th of September has come. We were finally off to the airport!!!

And then I had to face my least favourite part of our holiday – the flight. I am TERRIFIED of flying! I don’t even know why, I cannot explain, and I understand, that I am being silly here. But I just can’t help- am frightened when it comes to plane journeys. I was preparing myself for this since it was booked, but I was still feeling very tense, even lightheaded a bit.

But no choice, hey. If I wanted to get to Turkey, I had to board this damn plane. I don’t suppose I could drive there or take a train, huh? So I did board a plane at the end.

At the beginning of the flight I was not too bad actually. I thought I was holding myself together. But once I felt a slightest turbulence, that was it – I was about to cry and I didn’t even care about that sunny Turkey no more. Nearly 5 hours on the plane seemed like ages to me.

Now, believe me or not, I found a solution there. Maybe not ideal solution for a mother of 3, but, hey, it really did help and that was all that mattered! So here is my secret medicine if you are scared of flying: Continue reading Family Holiday in Turkey 2016 (IC Hotels Santai Family Resort)
