This is my last travel round-up for BritMums. I’ve been here since the start, February 2012, reading and sharing your travel posts each month. Sometimes they have been carefully curated pieces, highlighting a small number of chosen travel posts. More often they have been larger, more inclusive collections.
For my final post, my last hurrah, I asked you all to submit a recent travel post and I was inundated with submissions. Hopefully they are all here; apologies if I’ve missed anyone. Thank you to Jen and Susanna for asking me to do this job all those years ago and thank you to my editors, Nadine and Marianne before her, for being so supportive and helping out with those last-minute requests.
Ok, time to dive in!
We have lots of holidays to inspire you, from Cornwall up to Scotland. With a little bit of London, Wales and lots of camping and glamping trips.

I now have the great pleasure of handing over the reins to my very good friend, Gretta Schifano, who blogs at Mums Do Travel . For next month’s round-up Gretta would like you to submit a favourite family travel post by another blogger. If you have been inspired by another post in the last six months, get in touch with Gretta via the contact details on her blog or via Twitter @grettaschifano. She needs submissions by 19th July.
So it’s goodbye from me, Trish, and hello and good luck to Gretta.
