Last month I took you to warmer climes: we sipped cocktails in the Canaries and toured Australia and South Africa in the sunshine. But now, brace yourselves, we need to put on our vests, don scarves and woolly hats and venture out into the cold to try out proper winter destinations. First up we have […]

2014, a new year and, as I write, the rain is hammering on the windows and the wind is howling down the chimney. What better way to cheer myself up than dream of sunnier climes. If you don’t want to wait until the summer before feeling some warmth, why not take some inspiration from the […]
Some of our most successful trips abroad have involved city breaks in Europe. Making the most of our son’s love of Horrible Histories at the time, Rome was a big hit with Rory aged 9: Mum’s Gone to Rome: Skeletons and spaghetti. We followed this up a year later with a few days in Venice. Truth […]
Is travelling long haul with young children something you would consider doing? I must admit, we only took short haul flights with our son until he was much older but many families happily travel long distances and know how to make the trip as stress-free as possible. I learned more about best way to plan […]
Collating the Travel Round-up each month is great fun. There are several parent travel bloggers who feature regularly as they can always be relied on to have valuable travel information worth passing on. Some bloggers get a mention less often, maybe because they usually blog about other parenting issues and travel posts only pop up […]
A couple of times a year, instead of choosing half a dozen travel posts to highlight, I throw the round-up open to everyone and compile a list of blog posts you would like me to mention. It’s a great way for readers to find lots of suggestions for day trips in the UK to far-flung […]
I’m compiling this round-up a little earlier than usual as I will be away on my own holiday in Austria when it is published. As I write, it’s the middle of July and the UK is having a mini heatwave which, after so many disappointing summers, has taken us all by surprise. To celebrate this […]
Have we all recovered from BritMums Live? Returned to our blogs with renewed vigour? From a personal point of view I was delighted to be part of the panel discussing travel blogging. I was joined on the sofa by Steve Keenan from Travel Perspective, Kelly Lees from Gogobot and Kirstie Pelling from The Family Adventure […]
The Brilliance in Blogging awards will soon be upon us so what better way to showcase the finalists in the travel category than to feature them in this month’s round-up. I have asked each of the finalists to pick out two of their favourite posts from their own blog from the previous 12 months so […]
There were so many posts about Easter trips to choose from, I decided to feature as many as I could, rather than highlight just a few. I hope you find some inspiration for future holidays and days out from the following blogs. If you have any recent travel posts I haven’t mentioned, please add them […]
Family cruises have certainly become more popular over recent years. However, if you’ve never tried a cruise with the family, you may have many questions and concerns ranging from costs through to dining arrangements and safety. Six parent bloggers have recently returned from a trip to the Caribbean where they cruised on the Liberty of the Seas. […]
Did everyone have a great February half-term? Lots of great adventures, a chance to chill at home or were you victim to some of the bugs going round? As a family we have had some very successful trips at this time of the year, the best probably being a visit to Paris a few years ago when […]
It’s tempting during the winter months to stay inside, keep warm and hibernate for a while, dreaming of summer holidays with blue skies and sandy beaches. But family trips out during the colder months can be great fun as long as everyone is dressed for the weather. Chris, from Thinly Spread, took her family for […]
Now that Christmas is over, it’s rather nice to have a little look back at a few of the festive trips which were taken within the blogging community during December. Susanna (A Modern Mother) spent a fabulous weekend at the Legoland Windsor Resort Hotel. It’s worth keeping this in mind for a family treat next Christmas as […]
A piece of advice I often give to parents with regard to family holidays, particularly if the trip involves sightseeing, is to give your offspring a camera as soon as you feel they can manage it. Once we started taking our son Rory on city breaks abroad, probably from about the age of 9 […]
I’m writing this round-up the day before we are due to travel to Suffolk for a mini-break in the country. By the time you read this, I’ll be back home again. I do hope we’ve had a nice time. If we have, it will be largely down to the blogging community which was on top […]
