About Us

Welcome to our family travel blog and kids world travel guide.

Hello! We are The Meldrum’s. Our travel family consists of Mum (Tasha), Dad (David) and our son Travis.  We are a young family of three who are figuring out how to travel around the world with a toddler.  Travelling with toddlers is not easy which is hwy we figure out and document the best places to travel with kids in this kids world travel guide.

I always wanted to travel and believed my dream of world travel was over when I was diagnosed with a chronic condition that left me on crutches when I was pregnant. Learning more about my condition meant I wanted to travel more than before so I realised I needed to figure out how I can travel the world, and so this family travel blog and kids world travel guide was born.

We decided to book our tickets to Thailand via Qatar and document the whole thing as we travel the world for a year. Travelling with a toddler is not easy and there are more concerns when taking a child, such as the safest and best places to travel with kids.

David

I am David and I am 23. I have always had plenty of opportunity to travel the world with work… but for me travel with family trumps travel for work every time. I started to look at other family travel blogs to see if travelling with a toddler was possible and it was so obvious to me that I could still complete my bucket list travel goals while travelling the world with a toddler.

Our family travel blog will be a great guide for families with kids who want to know the best places to travel with kids, the realities of travelling with a toddler and how we make round the world travel as a family work for us. Our aim is to make it a kids world travel guide that any family can turn to when they are seeking advice and information on anything to do with family travel.

Me in Thailand, May 2016

I really love to travel. I’ve found that its easier to learn, easier to motivate yourself and easier to make friends when you are out there making the most of and travelling the world. I am a big supporter of the work-life balance which is why we started our family travel blog to help us be able to afford to travel the world. This has given us the time and money freedom to be able to see a bit more of the world and we will continue to travel round the world until we feel like we want to stop. In 2016 I spent time in a total of 9 countries. I have been as far as Iceland and Thailand, and as close as England.

Tasha

I’m Tasha… I am 27 and I love to travel with family. My passion for travel started as a kid when my family decided to take us to some of the best places to travel with kids. My travel with family meant I managed to see a lot of Europe when I was younger.

Me in Fuerteventura

I remember thinking I would never have the money to travel the world anywhere outside of Europe. I even used to dream of the long flights and when I woke up I always felt that the dream had been totally outside of my reach, really surreal. I met David in 2013 and we became really close really quickly. It was the kind of supportive relationship that meant he supported my dream to start a family travel blog and kids world travel guide. He was even supportive when we talked of our crazy idea to travel around the world with a toddler.

David and I from 2013

I had never travelled with a partner, never mind travel with kids, heck I had never made realistic future plans or done anything other than go out drinking. Travel became really interesting to me around 2006… I visited Rome with some friends and we began to share our travel stories and bucket list travel ideas yet I just never managed to actually travel the world.

For me the freedom to be able to see these places is what keeps me sane. I was not born to work to pay bills then die. To live on such a wonderful planet and never experience it seems ludicrous to me. Our family travel blog gives me the chance to share my experiences and dreams with other families who want to travel round the world and really give them to push to set off travel with kids, or just give normal families the information they need on the best places to travel with kids.

Life was made for living… And I plan to do exactly that.

Travis

My name is Travis and I’m now two years’ old. I got my first passport when I was only a few months old.

Shopping with Grandad when Mum and Dad were in Thailand

I am really proud of my Mum and Dad creating this family travel blog and kids world travel guide because it means my family and friends always know what cool stuff we are up to. I think my Mum and Dad really help other families like ours get out and see the world, and to me that is really inspiring.

I make travelling with a toddler one heck of an experience for my Mum and Dad. Travel with family is one of my favourite things to do and I cannot wait to travel the world for a year with my Mum and Dad and find out the best places and things to do when it comes to travel for kids.
