Where Not to Save Money on Travel

world travel family travel blog where not to save money on travel

We’ve just completed one year of family travel on just under $100 a day. That’s 14 countries, 4 continents and 2 cruises worth of family travel with two now fairly-large kids. $100/day is a lot less than we spent living in our own home. We’re good at saving money, great at budget travel and amazing [...]

Amazingly Family Friendly Villa in Umbria


Our week-long Italy trip centered around the most amazingly family friendly villa in Umbria. I’ve actually never seen accommodation so geared up for families with children, from tots to teens. We had a week of great activities lined up but my boys ( 10 and 7), were thrilled enough just to stay at the villa. We spent a [...]

Kids Cooking Class in Italy. Making Pasta.


I’m never going to be able to eat dried pasta again after our time in Italy. Fresh, home-made pasta, produced with love from the finest ingredients is a totally wonderful eating experience. The pasta is softer, slightly spongy, and soaks up the flavours of the sauce. It’s delicious and very more-ish. A kids cooking class [...]

I’d imagined a sort of gondola or ski lift style conveyance. Jaws hit the deck when we saw the contraption that was [...]

Dinner on Key Largo Photo Post


Let’s rewind 2 months to our last night in the Americas. Dinner on Key Largo was a treat for us, a farewell to Florida, a state we love on so many levels and the last night of our Canada to the Keys road trip before we boarded our cruise back to Europe. That one meal outlived [...]
