Traveling Family

What's it been like as a traveling family?

My husband. Our two sons and I have been blessed with multiple traveling opportunities as a family. We've been traveling as a family since way before our youngest son joined the party.

We've enjoyed camping holidays. Luxury vacations. Travel to hot and cold climates. Villas and even cruises.

Our first family holiday was when we went on a cruise through Europe. It was an amazing experience. As we had other family members with us and so much to do both on and off board. On board. There are great kids clubs for children of all ages. So parents can get some time to just be adults again!

Seeing the joy on our sons faces every time we go abroad is priceless. We all bond so much. Taking in unfamiliar surroundings. Whilst leaving the stress at home. The kids seem to learn so much traveling. Their speech and confidence always increases each time we travel.

Morocco was a really special holiday as it was our first proper family trip. Without extended family members and not on a cruise ship.

Iceland is another family traveling destination that stands out for us. Due to the dramatic snowy landscape. Read about it here : https://www.gonesunwhere.com/search?q=iceland

When I fell pregnant with my second son. Me being me. I had not one. But two babymoons at five and seven months pregnant! Enjoying a couple's only trip to Majorca and then a heatwave with our son joining us in Nice!

When baby number two was finally born. After almost an 11. Yes 11 month pregnancy! We couldn't wait to start traveling again. So when our second son was just 6 months old. Off we flew to Kefalonia. A Greek island. Followed by another Greek island. Mykonos some 10 months after that!

When we can't board a plane. We still enjoy traveling through England to destinations we've never seen before. It's so much fun to explore.

We stayed overnight in Bournemouth visiting one of England's most popular beaches. Durdle door in Dorset. Followed by family favourite. Bournemouth.

We've also enjoyed an overnight animal safari in Bristol. Where you get to check out the animals after hours in the evening and early the following morning. Before all the other park visitors arrive. We stayed in a snug little pod. Did some bush-craft activities and enjoyed a bonfire. Seeing giraffes and even grizzly bears! Apart from the little one getting grumpy during the night trek. We all really enjoyed ourselves.

The positives of traveling as a family definitely outweigh any negatives. The memories you make will last a lifetime. So if you're considering taking the leap. Then you should.

I haven't done any long haul flights with the little one. Neither have we pursued traveling long term with the kids, but that will hopefully soon be the plan.
