Travel round-up: Christmas treats and winter warmers

travelJanuary is traditionally the time of year when, according to the TV adverts, we all start thinking about booking our summer holidays. I’m not sure I’m quite that organised this year but thinking about holidays, or even just a day trip, for any time of the year is always a favourite pastime.

The selection of posts below will give you some idea of how BritMums travel bloggers have been entertaining themselves during the Christmas festivities: worth keeping in mind for next year.

About Trish Burgess

Trish Burgess started her blog ‘Mum’s Gone To…’ with a series of posts called ‘Mum’s Gone To Iceland’ where she was extremely ill on a whale-watching trip and thought she would die snow-mobiling on a glacier. Thankfully she survived and continued with less scary family trips: ‘Mum’s Gone To…Canada, Cyprus, Barcelona, Berlin etc. Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne she now lives in South Lincolnshire and travels with her husband and occasionally with her son, who is now at university.
