Our Family Travels

We (my partner and I) currently have a 7 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

A Staycation. Could it be the best family holiday? 10

You’ve been listening to your family and friends bragging how they have been away over the holiday season. They went down south, up north, over to Bali, across to Phuket; yet you stayed home.

Travelling to Bangkok with Kids – May 2012

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 […]

Travelling to Penang with Toddler – November 2011 1
