BE YOUR OWN BOSS WITH BIO SCULPTURE

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a day of pampering hosted by Bio Sculpture. It took place in the fabulous Mondrian Hotel on the banks of the Thames. We had one of best views of London’s City scape whilst getting a manicure. We were treated to a lush massage and afternoon tea where we found [...]

Instead of heading to a theme park for the millionth time, maybe it’s time to try something new — a trip to one of the many amazing national parks that dot the American landscape. Where are the best national [...]

LIMA WITH KIDS

We started our Peruvian trip in the North and arrived into Lima on an overnight bus from Mancora. We drove for hours and hours past baron desert land, before hitting busy and vibrant Lima. Lima surprised me in many ways. Especially with the European architectural influences. Its one of the largest cities in South America [...]

THE BEST HOTEL IN SALTA, ARGENTINA FOR FAMILIES

Argentina was the last stop on our seven month Pan-American trip. After being in neighbouring Bolivia where travelling with children can be quite challenging, we were in desperate need of a tranquil break. We arrived in Salta over the Carnaval weekend so everything was closed and there wasn't much going on in town. We found [...]

SEX, INTERRELATIONS & FULL TIME TRAVEL WITH KIDS

As a full-time travelling family, we have really struggled with balancing all aspects of life. Site seeing, discovering, time with our kids, work, and of course, time as a couple. In the six months we've been away, we have gone out for dinner alone, twice, for an hour each time. We are always in a [...]

AN ‘I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO’ SITUATION

We were in lovely Cusco, high in the Peruvian Andes. It’s a city and gateway to Machu Picchu, so it welcomes many tourists every day. The day before, we came across an amazing street performer, who had lots of traditional instruments and used random things like feathers to make music. We loved it so much, [...]

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 [...]

MANCORA, PERU WITH KIDS

MANCORA, PERU WITH KIDS - Other than Lima and Machu Picchu, I didn't know a lot about Peru. Whilst, on our Pan-American trip, I was looking for the first, and best place to stop after crossing the border from Ecuador. I never heard of Mancora before, but the more I researched, the more I realised [...]

QUITO, ECUADOR WITH KIDS

When I told people I was going to Quito, Ecuador with Kids, I heard mixed reviews. A lot of people mentioned issues of petty crime, it kind of put me off. If anything I've learnt from this, I need to go and make my own mind up about a place. We were really surprised at [...]
