I don’t know about you but one place I go to get my family travel inspiration is blogs! From those on wild round the world adventures to those that embrace travelling closer to home! Here I’ve rounded up my top 5 inspiring family travel bloggers to follow in 2018!
Suitcases and Sandcastles
Clare went all over the world as a travel writer for the Daily and Sunday Telegraph and now loves exploring with her two boys. With Suitcases and Sandcastles Clare shows you how to make travel and culture fun for the whole family with city guides, travel tips and inspiration for day trips and family holidays both in the UK and abroad. The focus is on slowing down and taking the time to enjoy new experiences whether you’re exploring a new city, trying different foods or going on an adventure. She loves searching for hidden gems like the best laid-back Greek islands or finding fun places to stay.
Jenny and her family are proof that adventure travel does not have to stop once kids are in the picture. Her two boys (aged 2 and 4) have met wild elephants in Sri Lanka, travelled sleeper trains across India, meditated with monks in Thailand, crossed the Qatari desert in a 4WD, and have just returned from trekking in Nepal’s Himalayas. Jenny and her family are currently living in Bangalore, India, and are definitely ones to follow if you’re considering taking your little ones to India or elsewhere in Asia.
Monkey and Mouse
Jenny is a Scottish mum of two who has loved travelling since she herself was a child. After many years of travelling the globe with friends and on solo trips she now enjoys showing her children the huge variety of cultures and natural wonders in the world. As Jenny home educates her children she has plenty of time throughout the year to visit other countries. From husky sledding in Finnish Lapland to swimming in the Mediterranean and exploring the nearby Scottish islands, Jenny and her family love home educating through family adventures. In 2018 Jenny is planning to travel somewhere different every month of the year and even getting the children to join in choosing destinations. Photography has become a real passion if Jenny’s and she has built up a large Instagram following who love to engage with her travel photography and advice. She’s definitely a travel blogger to follow in 2018!
