Port Douglas With Kids

Port Douglas Queensland Australia is a beautiful, up-market resort town with easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. It’s a dream destination for families with kids with many safe, beautiful, outdoor things to do. We’ve called it home since our kids were toddlers, babies really. If you’ve not had a chance to visit Port Douglas with your family you need to put that right. A look at things to do in Port Douglas with kids, of any age, but with a little special focus on the small kids. My two are teens now, so we can give you plenty of information on the town we sometimes call home.

Learning To Be Parents On The Road

Because we’ve always done life this way, nothing much changed other than dad was around all the time. All four of us being together was no problem at all, other than, one-on-one child/parent travel is easier sometimes. I’ve read, often, that families have struggled to adjust to being together all the time. I can’t help you with that, sorry. It wasn’t our experience.

Halfway Hot Springs BC

Who hasn’t dreamt about soaking in a natural hot spring, in the middle of the wilderness, at the edge of a rushing glacial river? If you have (and why wouldn’t you) Halfway Hot Springs should be right at the top of your “must do” list. 

How To Travel With Teenagers – And Love It!

I have 2 teenagers now and we travel. We travel a lot, it’s our business and our joy and taking my teens to new places is my favourite thing to do. However, teens have a bad reputation in some circles as not the best travellers. We’ve not had any issues while travelling with teens so I think I should share a few tips, hacks and ideas for those of you wondering how to travel with teenagers. Not just how to travel with teenagers, how to travel with teens and enjoy it.

London With Kids

 Of all the cities in the world, London with kids is my top pick for children because of the wealth of child-friendly, fun, cultural, historic, educational, and family-oriented things to do in the UK’s capital city. Thankfully, many of the things to do in London with kids are free. Of course, London can be expensive too, be ready for that, but the devalued pound and good exchange rates could help overseas visitors a lot. Flights to London have also become more affordable lately. Some ideas, tips, reviews, and guides on London with children, 2021 updated. Some are my own childhood favourites, some are things and places my kids and our family loved to do in London. Visiting London with children by a Londoner, a local mum, a returned ex-pat, and a full-time professional traveller. We include things to do in London, things to do near London, the practicalities of visiting London with kids and the best family experiences we can find.

Thailand With Kids. No Worries!

Are you worrying about travelling to Thailand with kids? We can help you with that. If you’d like to dip your toe in the water of Asian family travel, taking kids to Thailand would be my top recommendation. We have been to Thailand 20+ times, each trip has been fabulous and problems have been few. Hopefully we can help you get your family to Thailand. Thailand, we think, is the most child-friendly and family-friendly destination in Southeast Asia, it’s also one of the most affordable for families, it’s easy to visit and travel around and offers an abundance of fun things to do for kids and parents.

10 Things Kids Hate About Travel

We travelled full-time from 2013 until COVID grounded us. The kids were just 6 and 8 years old when they left home. They visited 50 or so countries, most of them many times. We were backpacker-type travellers, rather than slow travellers, but we did put in some long stints in London, Romania and Vietnam. We actually rented homes in all of those places, using them as bases more than full-time residences. Most of the time we stayed in hotels, some expensive, some budget. The boys were homeschooled, or “worldschooled” throughout these years and for a few years prior to departure. I am a travel blogger.
