We are a blended family of five. I have two children, Zack age 17 and Madi age 15 and my boyfriend Jim has one daughter, Holly age 9. We love to travel and explore. We firmly believe that kids need experiences over material things. We have been traveling together since 2012 and I have been blogging for a little less than a year. My blog is focused on family travel but occasionally we do a solo trip without the kiddos. We love the water, we snorkel, Scuba dive and swim. We are all adrenaline junkies and are up for most anything.
When my husband suggested we move us and our three kids from the US to Sweden, I thought he was nuts! I took the leap of faith though, and I’m so glad I did! We have since been living here (mostly) happily since 2016. This journey has taught us so much about ourselves, our family, and our lives. We decided to start a blog in order to share our thoughts and experiences with the world. Our blog is aptly called Family. Travel. Life. because we blog about everything from the extracurriculars our kids have joined here in Sweden, the differences we’ve noticed between cultures, our experiences (and funny mistakes) while learning a new language, our fantastic travels throughout Scandinavia and Europe, and even what it’s like living with anxiety and depression even when life is great. You’re sure to find something to inspire you, motivate you, or to relate to!
Seventeen years ago I started working as a freelance writer and as my second assignment I was sent on a trip by my editor. I was hooked. I loved being able to see new places and bring my family along to explore. At that time I was a mom of a 5-year-old and an almost 1-year-old. I’m now the mom of five boys – ages 23, 18, 15, 13 and 12 and we’ve done countless trips throughout the Midwest and beyond. I love sharing the special spots we’ve seen, the roads less traveled and the hidden gems in towns small and large. I’ve heard people say that the only thing you can buy that truly makes you richer is travel – and I couldn’t agree more. Making memories with my family is far more valuable than anything money can buy.
I’m a Seattle-area stay-at-home mom to my 3-year-old son Owen and baby Hugo. Travel is very important to our family and we make it a priority to expose our kids to a variety of activities and cultures. It’s been a lot of fun for our family because it has slowed down our pace and we’ve noticed new things in places we frequent.
I started Marcie in Mommyland because people are always telling me I’m so “brave” for traveling with a baby or toddler and they want to know how I do it. After countless emails and Facebook messages, I finally realized it would be much simpler to consolidate everything into a blog. It’s so much fun to write about our adventures and get inspired to explore new places!
The purpose of my blog is to share some of the tips and tricks that we’ve learned on our adventures so that families can set themselves up for success! It can be intimidating to think about going anywhere with your baby or toddler. And one bad experience can leave a lasting mark. Marcie in Mommyland is here to help you troubleshoot and find the right adventure for you and your family.
We’re Growing a Pair! Growing a pair of little world adventurers. In 2015-2016 we dropped everything to take our kids backpacking for a year. We travelled by plane, train and tuk-tuk across Asia and Australia, making lifelong memories and becoming immensely close as a family. Now we’ve got a taste for family travel adventure. We don’t want to stop there. So we have bought a sailing boat and we plan to live aboard and sail around the world. As complete sailing newbies, we have never sailed before and we know nothing about boats, so this should be an interesting journey and a steep learning curve! Follow our successes and failures as we buy our sailing boat, learn to sail and plan our trip around the globe. We want to inspire more families to get out there and see the world with their kids. Whether it’s with a backpack, an RV, a sailing boat or on family vacations, the world is waiting for you. Go on! Grow some little adventurers!
I’m Emma, mum to 2 mostly adorable but quite crazy (and a bit irritating) young kids, married to a travel mad husband.
Pre-kids we were pretty adventurous and, since having them, I think we have continued the spirit to a point (Houston-Malta- London was our first trip with a 9 week old baby) but we have had some fails mixed in with the wins – we’re still learning! We have a backpack from pre-kid travelling which comes on holiday but our days of rocking up without a plan are a distant memory. For a long time we felt we were missing the balance that met our needs as well as the children’s. We still miss the feeling of community from travelling – sharing experiences with others to inspire the next trip.
We know people who love globetrotting with a backpack and a kid (or 5) in tow and others who love their all-inclusive packages but none of that works for us right now. The great thing about holidays is what works for one won’t work for another.
Wanderlust and Wet Wipes has itineraries for the places we have been / are going, some dos and don’ts and planning tips. We stay in a variety of places so there is something for everyone. We help balance the old life with the new so a holiday with the kids is a holiday from which you come home feeling refreshed and relaxed instead of frazzled and mildly disappointed.
I don’t travel with my kids so that I can stand around bored at playgrounds in every country. Let me know show you that once you become a parent, that holidays can still be fun. You can absolutely still go on adventures and explore the world as you did before.
I am Jessica. I am a mother of two and a wife. I am also a freelance travel writer, a blogger, and an obsessive traveller and photographer.
My bucket list is larger than my purse so I often include information on keeping costs down in a particular destination. I only write about and recommend what I have personally seen and experienced.
I hope that by sharing my experience and stories, that I can inspire you to go on your own family adventures!
World of Travels with Kids are a multicultural bilingual family of 4 who love adventures globally and locally. They inspire families to get out and explore their local area but also hope to portray that adventure is just one part of a vibrant, healthy lifestyle. They believe don’t have to travel internationally to create awesome learning experiences for kids; that said, they do seem to be flying off with frequency!!! They have lots of useful posts about how to visit their home countries of Peru, Nicaragua and Western Australia; most of the posts specifically talk about visiting with kids.
They aim promote living conscious, sustainable lifestyles with a minimal global footprint and aim to raise international citizens with compassion for all humanity.
World of Travels are an honest family travel blog that focuses on blogging about what they know and love! They write authentically and naturally – they are ‘real’ travellers and review places and hotels that they know well. Last year’s holiday took them to Bali, this year has them heading to Fiji.
At Going Where The Wind Blows you can meet the Sullivan family. Mum – Samantha, Dad – Paul and their four children aged 4 to 11 years old – Jack, Tom, Lily and George. The Sullivan family sold their house in New Zealand in March 2016 and have been travelling very slowly since, visiting Kuala Lumpur , Malta, Gran Canaria and the United Kingdom. The Sullivan’s are British and New Zealand passport holders who have also lived in Australia.
Their blog shares the highs and lows of travelling with a larger than average family. Discover how they cope with the additional challenges of Asperger’s, and multiple food and environmental allergies and intolerance’s. The family embraces a natural learning approach to education, which fits well with their mobile lifestyle. Their aim is to explore the world at their own pace for as long as possible. No future plans to settle down and buy a house again. The ultimate dream is to one day own a catamaran and sail the world, visiting one port at a time!
My Name is Nahdia and I have a passion for travelling with my two boys. Travelling is so important because it introduces us to different cultures and lifestyles. Travelling to me is more than a holiday. Travelling is the experience. Last year the boys and I managed to travel 6 times! Yes, well they travelled 4 times and I travelled 6. I think it so important for our health and well being that we make sure we stay happy and healthy and for me that means taking time out to travel with friends.
Last year the boys were fortunate to travel to Cyprus, Corfu, Ireland and Disneyland Paris. I promote affordable travel. I don’t stay in fancy hotels. I find deals on Groupon and book in advance. This year we have been to South France with Eurocamp and plan to visit Croatia and Cuba!! Follow us for tips, inspiration and affordable travel ideas.
No Beaten Path is a blog about travel, home education and general adventuring, with the odd rant thrown in for good measure. A family of nomads, we are currently based in Istanbul but have been lucky enough have been based in six different countries over time and have travelled to dozens of others.
Writing about home education (also known as home schooling) there is a focus on organisation and education needs for older students, middle and high schoolers. As well as chronicling our own learning adventures I write articles such as university entry requirements in different countries for home educated students.
Travel posts range from why you should consider going to the public baths in Japan to how to enjoy a day out in Münster, Germany. Look for specific information or just read through for entertainment- I try to make it both! Whether you are a always on the road or a family that prioritizes travel and fits it in to a ‘normal’ life (whatever that is) there is something on No Beaten Path that you want to read.
The Lots of Planets Have a North family (or ArgeyFam as they refer to themselves on the blog) decided one day in late 2015 to pack up their home in Adelaide, South Australia, and travel the world for twelve months. Five weeks later they were on a plane bound for the UK, and they have been travelling ever since. As you might have guessed, their ‘twelve months away’ quickly became… well… as long as they can
travel they will travel.
Getting up and travelling so quick was a challenge, but one they were determined to make easy, and low stress for the whole family – and that is how they still travel today. Now, with their blog, they are determined to remove the idea that planning a holiday for the whole family, and getting travelling, is a stress on the family and on the hip-pocket, and something to be feared.
Still travelling and loving life on the road, they are one of the few family travel blogs
that include travel diaries, reviews and commentary on travel, from all members of the family (the mum, dad and both kids – an 11year old girl and a 7 year old boy). As you can imagine the reviews can be quite varied, both on information and writing, but that is part of their charm. Easy travel for the whole family really is easy travel for the WHOLE family.
Have you ever wanted to throw your life up in the air and run away before it comes back down? We did just that, quitting “Good Jobs”, selling an investment property, giving away all our stuff. It’s wonderful, liberating, FREEDOM! Now we’re backpacking around, taking our time, moving at our own speed.
There are many challenges travelling with two young kids (ages 3 and 5), but it’s amazing watching them grow and change. They just absorb local culture and experiences into their vocabulary and characters at an incredible rate.
Our blog is updated regularly with destinations, travel info, photos, and even our mistakes, mishaps, and misfortunes.
