ROTORUA WITH KIDS

When I first visited New Zealand ten years ago, on a solo backpacking adventure, I thought it was a once in a life time opportunity. Little did I know I would end up married to a New Zealander and return more than five times since that initial trip. The one place I like to [...]

CUSCO WITH KIDS

Cusco is an incredible city, high in the Peruvian Andes. Well known for its altitude and gateway to Machu Picchu, its often missed off itineraries. Many people have been known to suffer from altitude sickness in Cusco so travel insurance is essential. If planned properly and altitude is adjusted to, it is possible to enjoy [...]

MACHU PICCHU WITH KIDS

Visiting Machu Picchu with a baby and a toddler seems like a far flung idea to most. The altitude, the hiking, the water and food, how did we manage? These are some of the hundreds of questions I got asked on social media when we visited. It seems there is a lot of confusion about [...]

SINGAPORE WITH A TODDLER

Community post by Jane ~ I had been to Singapore twice before having Bruno and neither time did I feel it was particularly a family destination. I wasn't necessarily looking out for the wealth of kid friendly activities and play parks. We visited in December when Bruno was approaching his second birthday and had the [...]

THINGS TO DO IN GRANADA, NICARAGUA

I have always loved small colonial towns. The buildings and architecture are so eye catching with bright colours, crumbling paint, pretty town halls and bustling squares. We visited Antigua, Guatemala before visiting Granada, Nicaragua. We absolutely loved Antigua so we weren't sure if Granada could beat it. My first impressions were the town was beautiful. [...]

TWO NIGHTS IN MIAMI

Before I visited Miami, I immediately thought glitz, glam, fashion and nightlife. It wasn't necessarily a destination that springs to mind for the family. Based on the southerly point of east coast America, it has a strong cuban influence. I feel embarrassed to point that out, but I honestly didn't know that 70% of people [...]

CALCOT MANOR REVIEW, THE COTSWOLDS

This Calcot Manor review is a community post, guest written by Jane Sharp. The Cotswolds aren't necessarily the first place which spring to mind when thinking about a holiday or weekend away when you have kids. The quintessential English villages, long walks and cozy pubs don’t tend to be the most child friendly option. However, [...]

PORTOFINO BEACH RESORT, BELIZE

When we were researching Belize, we wanted to ensure we had a mix of experiences, especially as there is so much on offer. As we were arriving in Belize City and finishing our trip at the most southerly point of the country, it was obvious to start on the islands. We heard a lot about [...]
