Wanderlust Crew Fearless Family Travel Interview

Wanderlust Crew Fearless Family Travel Interview

I love getting to know more families through our Fearless Family Travel Interview Series. This month we are getting to know the Wanderlust Crew who are full time travellers who embrace slow travel: 

  1. What is your family travel? Full-time, part-time, digital nomads etc.

    We are full-time travelers that like to slow travel, meaning a month or more in each destination. We both work “from home.”

  2. How has your travel style changed since becoming a family?

    Because taking short vacations gets really expensive as a family of 6 and because the kids move slowly, we like to take our time in each location. Our travel hasn’t stopped since having a family, in fact, we travel more!

  3. What was your baby(ie)’s first trip? Why did you chose to go there? What were the highlights/lowlights etc?

    Our first trips with our babies revolved around visiting family, but our first vacation as a family was when our oldest was 1. We went to Hawaii. She absolutely loved the ocean. After that we were hooked on travel.

  4. What is your favourite family travel gadget and why?

    We have 2 iPads that the kids share and that is definitely their favorite gadget!

  5. What is your favourite family travel destination and why?

    We love Europe! Anywhere in Europe really. I can’t pick a favorite!

  6. What is the most family friendly accommodation you have ever visited?

    We love the Dorint in Beatenberg, Switzerland in the Swiss Alps. Amazing beds for kids and a huge play room!

  1. Family travel bloggers can be guilty of showing only the good stuff – what is your worst family ravel experience?

    Oh I have so many! Having kids with a stomach bug on the airplane is always fun.

    Having our car break down on a ferry and not being able to get it off the boat.
 That time in Italy we all made the train, except for dad who ran alongside it, but still missed it!

  2. What are your top three tips for other families who wish to travel?

    Don’t stress about seeing everything. It’s ok to miss a few things…reason to go back!

    Don’t explore all day every day, you’ll burn your kids out and turn them off to travel.


    Let them help with the planning and pick a few things they want to see and do.


  1. What do you wish you had known or done before starting family travel?

    I wish I would have started writing about my travels a long time ago and I wish I would have found more resources for my kids to learn about our destinations.

  2. What are your future family travel plans?


    We are currently in Alaska for the next two months. In February we are heading back to Europe to see Scotland, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.

Travel is so good for kids - giving them an insight into the world outside their door! I'd love to travel more with Sam - when he's that bit older. He was on a plane at 6 months - which is 13 years earlier than I was!

Some great tips here - can't imagine how stressful having the car break down on a ferry was though! I'd be losing my mind. LOVELY photo in front of the Eiffel Tower. It's definitely inspiring me to travel more. Just need to save some pennies.
