Where are we today?
Family travel is, to us, about doing things a bit differently. It's about showing instead of telling. It's about being instead of wishing. It's about giving our children experiences and memories that will shape the sort of people they become in the future.
It's not all butterflies and roses, however. Some days it's the best thing we've ever done, and some days we feel like heading home right away. Some days the kids drive us up the wall, and other days we feel like the happiest family on the planet. Family travel helps us know each other better, and that comes with warts and all. One thing we can all agree on, however, is there's never two days the same!
We're planning to populate this page with more info about us. In the meantime, enjoy our travel map to see where we've been, and where we plan to go next!

Thinking of travelling too?
If you're thinking of packing it all in and venturing off around the world, we would wholly support your impetus and tell you to go for it!
However, you do need to know that it's not just an extended holiday. There's still laundry to do, shopping and cooking to take care of and cleaning seems to be an endless job, particularly on a campsite where its either sand or mud being trekked through the van every moment of the day.
If you don't have a job you can do from anywhere, then you're going to struggle. Not only will you struggle financially, you will also struggle emotionally with no focus for your existence. We split our time between home educating our children, working to earn money and keeping the family in clean clothes and food. I'm sure single people who travel have a completely different experience to us, but we love our little crazy days.
Be bold, be brave. We've met so many older people travelling who have retired and bought motorhomes or caravans. Every one of them wishes they had started their journey sooner. Don't wait to start living!
What is the point?
- We love to travel, but hadn't done a lot of it before we had kids
- England is lovely, but expensive... you work simply to get by, with no time for enjoyment
- We have the financial and emotional means to do this (for now!)
- We are blessed with well balanced children
- Education happens in so many ways
- We believe quality of life is more important than owning a house
- We're impatient people, we didn't want to 'wait' until tomorrow
- Tomorrow may never come
- We've always done things a bit differently... this seemed like a natural progression
- Because we can!
We are not highly experienced. We are not filthy rich. We are by no means experts on travel, and are learning every day (often the hard way).
Still, you can ask away if you have any questions you think we might be able to answer.
Contact us through the website, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get back to you.
Good luck in your own adventures!
