A MUM has revealed the reason she rarely takes her eight-year-old away with her on holiday – claiming she has much more fun without them.
TikTok user @hayleytravels_, who regularly posts about her travels, took to her social media account to clear up why she prefers to fly solo.
She explained: “Hey. I get a ton of questions about why I don’t take my eight-year-old child on all of my holidays with me.
“Right, the quick answer is – I don’t want to. There is nothing enjoyable about a holiday with a child.
“Parents, I know you’re lying. I know you’re lying on Facebook [when you say] ‘making memories.’”
Hayley continued to say: “A beach holiday with a kid – stop it, stop it!”

She then said that, as a parent, you’re too busy worrying about your child and their safety at all times to fully relax.
She continued: “Can you have a drink? Can you read a book? No, no.”
Turning her attention to city breaks, Hayley added: “I like to go to a cathedral, I like to have a pastry and sit by the fountain.
“I like to walk around all the old streets in an old town in Valencia or Madrid.”
