Family Travel Times
Recounting the travels and adventures of the Ebner family, Family Travel Times is the only blog on our list that is written by the whole family. Quite an exciting way to collect memories! Sarah and Brian have two children, Jessica (15) and Robert (12). It’s fantastic to be able to read from the kids’ perspectives as well as the adults. Robert and Jess have both developed their own writing styles over the years; no doubt due to the frequency with which they contribute to the blog and the varied topics they cover. Jess is always filled with enthusiasm about her latest escapades, and Robert is the keen adventurer of the Ebner clan. Often, the family will write a four-part post so that readers are able to hear each family member’s experience. Packed with history, city trips, adventure, theme parks and much more, Family Travel Times is an absolute pleasure to read that even the teens can relate to. It’s lovely to see a joyous family travelling together and collaborating on this creative endeavour. We highly recommend this travel blog for families with older children!
Cathy Winston of MummyTravels is determined to keep on travelling in much the same manner as she did before she had Minnie, her six year old daughter. For those of you who have never lost your wanderlust, despite your growing laundry pile, this is the blog for you. Cathy has visited a total of 55 countries, and sheds light on the nitty-gritty of travelling with a ‘bump, baby and now a single-minded toddler whirlwind of energy’. Admirably, she manages to do so with an unfailing sense of humour. Besides details of her recent wanderings, MummyTravels has very useful checklists, how-to tips and destination guides. A must read for any parent looking for places to travel with kids.
A huge part of Kate’s blog, Baby Routes, is dedicated to family travel in the great outdoors. Kate is a rambler born and bred, and a good portion of her blog describes her family adventures in Great Britain. Nature plays a significant role in Baby Routes and provides fantastic ideas for introducing the kids to the wonders of the countryside. The ever-expanding database of family-friendly walks is a fantastic resource for young families who love hiking. Using an interactive map, Kate has compiled a huge selection of child-friendly walks in the UK and beyond. There is even a feature allowing visitors to add their own walks, making it a collaborative effort. For families who love walking, and agree that you can’t quite beat the Great British countryside, Baby Routes is for you.
