Winning Entry:

 

"We went to a little place called Portinatx and it was just beautiful. Many think of Ibiza purely as party land but there is so much more to discover! We were looking for somewhere specifically suitable for toddlers/young children and this fit the bill perfectly. A beautiful sandy beach, gorgeous sparkling blue sea, plenty of places to eat and shops for essentials, a true mini paradise that even with a busy toddler, gave us parents the quiet relaxing time we needed too!

"Everybody thinks that summer means sea, sunbathing and beaches. Actually, it means that they didn’t experience Norway 🇳🇴! This journey offers you an awesome landscape full of adventures. Renting a car seems to be the obvious way to get around as it gives you the freedom to explore all sides of nature. We fly to Oslo with Ryanair and follow the route from Oslo to Bergen and back to Oslo again. During the journey, you'll be able to see spectacular beauty - a thousand shades of green! You will even pass by Norwegian polar regions and see the climate change from summer to winter and winter to summer again :)

Highly recommended attractions:

  • Flam village: Catch the train between Flam & Myrdal! Travel back to Flam with it and enjoy the Norwegian fjords while kayaking - suitable for kids over age 5.
  • Undreal village; Unesco World Heritage area along Nærøyfjord with 80 inhabitants and 300 goats 😬 Known for its excellent goats cheese.
  • Bergen: Norway's second largest city.  It's located on a mountainside, overlooking the sea
  • Oslo: architecture, nature, art. Combinations of all these beauties; plus Edvard Munch and Kon Tiki! ⛵️ 🌳 🌳
    Bonus: Finding Madonna’s favorite Norwegian water"

"Alicante is great for family trips! I have been on 2 camping trips in that area and they both had swimming pools, a playground and an animation team to play with the children!! In Alicante city, there is a boulevard with a little fun fair, and a beach! Close to Alicante is Elche, with huge shopping centres and a zoo. You can also go to Benidorm in like 40 minutes, and there is Terra Mítica (an amusement park) and Terra Natura (a zoo). It's a great place to visit and it is surrounded with lots of other cities and towns to visit !!"

"Valencia is so great for families; you are close to the beach and mountains, and you can visit Africa with all their animals in "Bioparc" Valencia"

"Barcelona is always a good option for a few days, but in summer even more so! Being one of the most important cities in Spain, it has much to offer. Barcelona is pure fun for both children and parents. You can enjoy the wonderful monuments that the city has, its various museums, and of course eat in some of the best restaurants in the country that are there. In addition to all this, it has an excellent location as it is located one hour from one of the best amusement parks in Spain (Portaventura) and about an hour from the Costa Brava, where there are incredible beaches and coves to be with the family. Barcelona is a city with a lot of magic in each of its streets, it is that place where you will always want to go back...☄"
