Dreaming of world travel with kids in tow? 

Not only is it possible, but pretty much all the families I know could do it if they wanted it enough.  In mid 2015 we sold everything, packed up our two small kids and jumped ship for Bangkok.  We haven’t been back to the UK since.  Instead we have ridden camels in Rajasthan, floated down the Mekong, explored the ancient ruins of Bagan and jumped off waterfalls in New Zealand. The thing is, we are just a normal family, in fact, we are probably a lot like you. We didn’t inherit money, we don’t have a property empire and we certainly don’t have rich parents to fund our travels.  How do we do it? We saved, we sold our stuff and we have become experts in budget family travel.

Could you do it too?   

World travel with kids is not just for the privileged few. There are hundreds of traveling families out there right now and you can make it work for your family as well. Even if you are only dreaming about future family adventures we would love to hear from you.  Head on over to our contact page and drop us a line, its always great to hear about other people’s plans and ideas, and we love to answer questions.

After you have done that, go ahead check out some of our blog posts below. Hopefully you will find something useful in there.

Around Burma

Again, I have been having a trawl through our videos to update my fading memories.  To be honest the footage from around Burma was far from awesome. The only video I could find from Mandalay was Buzz jumping off a pile of stones beside some roadworks. Riveting stuff. Nonetheless, I cobbled together a couple of […]

Highlights of Yangon – Mouldy old buildings and really cheap gin

For reasons of both laziness and logistics, we ended up spending a fair bit of time wandering around Yangon. And, while it is not exactly Paris or New York, it was a pretty pleasant place to potter around in. Mouldy buildings and really cheap gin might not be much of a draw for many, however, […]

Oh Burma – Where did we go wrong?

I don’t think I have ever been as excited to visit anywhere, as I was to visit Burma. As we left Nepal I was giddy with anticipation, spending our stopover in Bangkok immersed in travellers’ tales and fawning over spectacular images of the Bagan temples and golden roofs of glistening pagodas. I also have to […]

Catching night buses in Burma

It is an annoying reality of backpacking in Burma, but if you want to do any kind of long-distance travel you will find that you will probably be doing it on a bus, at night.  Luckily, surviving night buses in Burma is an easy task. You may be surprised to learn that we found ourselves […]

Series – The downsides of long-term travel

This week I have had a few days of space to sit back and reflect on my recent travels.  Most of this reflection has been really positive and has led to the furious writing down of ideas and making of lists. However, I have also been thinking a lot about the downsides of long-term travel, […]

Sarangkot to Pokhara trek

Here there be tygers – trekking down from Sarangkot

Realising that we had neither the time nor the energy to manage the Poon Hill trek, we set our sights on the village of Sarangkot, which sits on a hill just above Pokhara. You can easily locate Sarangkot from the ground by the endless stream of paragliders that launch from the hillside just underneath it. […]
