We (my partner and I) currently have a 5 year old boy who we have taken travelling since the age of 20 months. We are your average family that works, has a mortgage and takes annual leave. That is we travel for a week or 2 at a time a couple of times a year.

Below are posts of our travels with our son. I hope that they will inspire you to travel with your children

Travelling with Kids to Bangkok – May 2012 1

This was our second stop after having spent 6 days in Pattaya.   View Larger MapI have to admit I really didn’t like Bangkok.  It wasn’t that it was busy, which it was, but everything seemed to flow so well it didn’t feel claustrophobic.  I think maybe my expectations had been built too high by friends […]

Our second trip with our son was to Bali, he was 2 1/2years old. View Larger Map Pre-departure It was odd that we chose to go to Bali as we are “not Bali people”.  However during one of our random discussions I pointed out that many people go to Bali as it is so close to Perth […]
