Travel Round-up: City breaks

I’m a big fan of city breaks. Whether in the UK or abroad, a few days away experiencing the architecture, culture and food of a bustling city  can be just as invigorating as a longer holiday. As a family, some of our best trips have involved cities and our son, Rory, from an early age, started to appreciate art […]

Travel Round-up: BritMums go skiing

Having just returned from my first skiing holiday I am now belatedly aware how family-friendly the sport is and how, if children learn early, you can look forward to many happy hours on the slopes in future years. If you aren’t sure whether skiing will suit your family or not, take the children to an indoor centre […]

Travel Round-up: A medley for March

Last month I promised a smorgasbord of skiing posts but as most people have only just returned from their half-term trips, I thought it best to leave it until next time to give everyone a chance to write about their snowy experiences. Instead I would like to tantalise your travelling taste buds with offerings from […]

Travel Round-up: At home & (mostly) abroad

This month’s round-up is certainly a global one. Usually when I put a call out for travel posts, the balance falls in favour of trips within the UK. This time I have been reading about your jaunts from Venice to Vancouver and New Orleans to Namibia. I think you will find some inspiration here for […]

Travel Round-up: Self-catering in Devon & Cornwall

I know it’s wonderful to travel and explore this fascinating world of ours. But sometimes we need to step back and appreciate the beauty on our own doorstep. My plan had been to share your posts about self-catering in the UK but as the majority of posts just happened to feature accommodation in Devon and […]

Travel Round-up: Where in the world?

Last month the spotlight was on Greece but I realised that many of the summer holiday posts you had all been writing were in danger of being missed unless I compiled one of my regular bumper round-ups. There are some great reads here plus lots of suggestions for trips in the UK and beyond, for […]

Travel Round-up: Greek Odyssey

At the beginning of the summer, the economic crisis in Greece certainly caused tourists to waver with regard to booking a holiday there. A good friend of mine, Sally, has owned a villa in the resort of Stoupa, Greece, for many years. With her usual wry humour, on arrival at her holiday home this summer, she […]

Travel round-up: European encounters

This month’s round-up features a varied assortment of travel posts from Europe. Think of it as a blogging Eurovision, without the guest post from Australia. I also decided to keep the UK out of the mix – we’d only get nul points anyway.     Ireland Things to do in Wicklow – Kate Takes Five […]

Travel round-up: Bloggers at home & abroad

There are always so many excellent travel posts from the BritMums community and beyond that it’s difficult to choose only a small number for my monthly round-up. I try, as often as I can, to abandon a theme and share a larger number of posts from the UK and overseas, from budget days out to […]

This month I have found a number of great travel checklists provided by experienced family travel bloggers. […]
