World Travel Destinations, for People Who Love Adventure!
Keep scrolling down for a full list of travel destinations on our website. Where do we fit in the travel blogger market? We’re not just about travel with kids, we were, but our kids are almost grown now and travelling with them is super easy. They’re still expensive, as I’m sure your kids are, but they can do anything adults can including working on our site. The kids write too, our whole family does.
We travel to find the education, but what makes our travel blog unique? I think it’s adventure. We love a challenge and we love going to the places not so many families go. Our destinations work for long term travel, shorter adventures and vacations. You’ll find summer holiday tips, backpacking tips and all manner of travel information on our site. We hope you love these destinations as much as we do. If we didn’t love them – we say so.
Do you like to explore and learn from cultures, food, history, mountains, adventurous activities, unusual destinations and incredible ways of life? Then you’re in the right place. Jump straight to a place in our round the world travel blog below. Places and travel destinations, some easier, some harder, some cheap, some expensive.
Our site is free for you to use. We fund it through the adverts you see on this page and through affiliate marketing. This site has affiliate links here and there, we are not paid to place them, we put them there because we think these companies are good and we use them ourselves. If you choose to use them we make a small commission but the price you pay is not higher. This is one of the ways we pay for this site and the travel it takes to research for it.
Destinations – a Video Introduction
A short video to showcase some of our favourite travel destinations and why we love them. If you let them, all of our videos will play, from Tibet to Sarawak to London.
Our travel style depends on need, we do a lot of independent travel, budget, backpacking and luxury. We also take tours and group holidays sometimes. No travel snobbery here. We do it the best way and if that’s a group tour, so be it.
One of our very favourite countries, we’ve spent weeks and months touring Sri Lanka, from the popular tourist beaches, to the historic sites to the almost tourist-free north. We’ve been taking the kids from 6 years old and they always ask to go back. Sri Lanka is a popular family vacation destination and an easy country to travel around as independent travellers. Culturally there are rich rewards to be found here, in some ways it’s very cheap ( transport) in others crazy expensive ( admissions). Your travel style will set your budget.
Yes, we’ve been to Everest Base Camp and can tell you all about that along with other treks in Nepal and cultural highlights including Chitwan and Buddha’s birthplace, Lumbini.. The kids were 12 and 14 when they made in to Base Camp but they started trekking younger. We’ve also trekked Annapurna and spent weeks in Pokhara and Kathmandu, possibly my favourite city in the world ( but I also say that about Bangkok and London). Nepal is fascinating, spiritual and breathtaking, it’s possibly our most challenging country to date. We’ve been pre and post Earthquake and can tell you than Nepal is most certainly open for tourists. The link above takes you to our full Nepal travel guide, if you’re only interested in Trekking in Nepal, try this one.
Yes, you can take your family to Tibet, we did, but we waited until the kids were older and we’re glad we did. I describe Tibet as advanced level travel for many reasons. Tibet was one of the most incredible and moving travel experiences of my life. Click through above to access our Tibet content fully.
I’m so excited to finally be able to add Bhutan to our travel listings. It was my dream destination for decades and we finally made it. But did Bhutan live up to my very high expectations? Find out here.
The easiest country in Asia for travellers or holidaymakers, we think, is Thailand. It’s cheap, beautiful and accessible. Thailand is one of the world’s favourite travel destinations and certainly one of ours. In 2018 we took our 23rd trip to Thailand, we have a lot of Thailand content. Click through above.
A super cool and not-at-all budget destination. We test drive Singapore and Sentosa’s attractions for you here. We stayed under 2 weeks and sampled Singapore at the budget and luxury end, we visited every attraction and tourist draw we could. It’s all in the post.
Want to learn about the Maya? Then go to Guatemala! As my kids will tell you, the Maya are still with us today. Explore ancient sites like Tikal above, visit classy Antigua or hang out in backpacker favourites, Lake Atitlan and Flores. We spent a month in Antigua, a further few weeks exploring more of Guatemala.
I’m from Wales and it has a lot to offer. We cover much of south and west Wales on this site. I’m always trying to add more but my time is ridiculously limited by other projects.
We’ve visited Vietnam for a month as a couple and lived there for 6 months as a family. A wonderful country, kind, happy people and so much to see, learn and do. A top pick for family travel and a great, cheap, world travel destination. We are experts on Hoi An and rented a house there for much of our time.
We can’t list Turkey because we’ve only been to Istanbul, but we spent several weeks there and absolutely loved it. It’s one of the world’s truly great cities.
We list the UK, Wales, Scotland and London as separate sections because I’m from the UK. We spend a lot of time in London, with Wales being the country of my birth. There is a lot of content on the UK so it’s easier for you if we split it up. London with kids is a particularly important post with more detailed posts on many individual museums and attractions. Our Wales Travel Blog is where you want to be if you’re visiting Wales and we have a Scotland Travel Blog to give you some ideas on itinerary.
I think we’ve been to Malaysia at least 5 times and we have a love-hate relationship with it. We always have problems in Malaysia, but we have good friends there too. On this site, you’ll find coverage on Kuala Lumpur in-depth, Penang, Malacca, Sarawak ( Borneo) and Legoland Malaysia. We have been to Langkawi but haven’t posted about it yet as we really didn’t like it much. Sarawak is one of our favourite trips ever and the city of Kuching is one of our favourites.
You have to go to Angkor Wat. It’s non-negotiable! We cover a few more destinations in Cambodia too. Cambodia and Laos are probably the two hardest countries to travel in South East Asia.
If you love countryside, mountains, farms and rural living, join us in Romania. The country that took us by surprise, so much so, that we kind of live there, sometimes. We have skiing, bears, wolves and vampires too.
Another winner! Slovenia is so pretty and a nature lovers’ paradise. With endless outdoor activities this one is fabulous for families too.
Prague and the Czech Republic
We don’t have a huge amount of content up on Prague and the Czech Republic as yet, but we’ve been several times. Prague is a wonderful city, but some of our best experiences have been staying in country hotels in small towns and villages.
The Mediterranean is by far my favourite sea and Greece is just incredibly fantastic at everything. The mythology and history here captivates my kids and Greek food goes down well with them too. Just go. We’ve posted about touring Athens and the mainland by car, so much more to add.
My favourite country! India is hard work, but of course, do-able with the right attitude and plenty of patience. If you take a package holiday or organised tour it should be a piece of cake. Don’t be scared of India. Plenty of opportunities here for beach lovers, cultural travellers or foodies. We wrote up our weeks in India as a sort of rambling day by day adventure rather than a series of destination guides. If you click the link or photo above you’ll find our full India travel guide, alternatively you can start here with First Day in India – Adjusting.
Bali & Indonesia
We’re not experts on this part of the world but we very much enjoy Bali, Ubud in particular and also showcased an island resort in Indonesia, just off Singapore, Telunas Island Resort and Hotel. There is diversity here for sure and good food if you look for it. We’re were excited to discover more of Indonesia and recently managed to snorkel with the Bali Manta Rays.
My husband, Chef, is Australian and we lived there for 6 years. I’m sure you all know what Australia has to offer so I won’t bore you. A particular shout out for Port Douglas, up on the Great Barrier Reef in Far North Queensland, home to us. ( One of our homes !) We have a huge volume of content on Australia, start with our Australia travel blog round-up page ( click the word Australia above), we have content for holidaymakers, backpackers and people wanting to emigrate to Australia, as we did.
We often spend a few days in Dubai as a stopover between flights. There are a million tourist attractions here, but there is culture and tradition too, if you know where to look. The desert camel safari pictured above is one of my kids’ favourite things to do in the whole world.
We love Disney, we loved the Everglades, Amish Pennsylvania and New Orleans, we loved road tripping the east and west coasts.
We’re Londoners! We love London and I honestly think it’s the best city in the world for kids, so much to do, so much for free. I’ll just direct you to our London content above.
We’ve taken a baby and a toddler around some of the game parks in South Africa. My brother lived out there so we’ve been a few times, but our South Africa content is still very limited. More to come as time allows!
Another favourite of ours but a slightly challenging one. Long distances, long bus rides, winding roads, it’s tricky but so worth it. Smiling, gentle people, stunning scenery and so much history, ancient and modern.
One of our best trips of all time, but also a tough one. Almost a month travelling independently in Egypt. I’ve also taken tours and boat cruises in Egypt, it’s where Chef and I met, so we’ve done it in many ways. We feel safe there but the logistics of getting around are challenging. A tour would be best for inexperienced travellers. See our Egypt content, above.
