I have previously shared my favourite travel sites and they are still my go-to sites when planning a trip. However, now that we have a baby on board I have started researching for sites with more family focused content.
I can’t help but dream away when surfing the internet for travel inspiration (brilliant occupation by the way when home on maternity leave 😉 ) and I’m convinced that we’ll do “the +6 months grand world tour” someday when our son is a bit older. Until then, I’ll dream away online and plan all the smaller trips that our current situation permits (which is also wonderful – no complaints there!).
Here are my four (very different) favourite family travel sites so far:
The pictures in today’s post are from our Honeymoon to Mauritius (long before we even thought about having a baby)
Lost & Found Traveller
Julia is the lady behind Lost & Found Traveller. She is an excellent writer and shares her thoughts and travel experiences in some very well-written posts. What makes this blog a must follow for travel-obsessed and dreamers (myself included), is the fact that she and her family of five just sold their house in Melbourne to follow their dream of travelling the world for a year!
Her Instrgram is also super inspiring with nice photos and many Insta-stories following their world journey.
Pie y Pata
Pie & Pata is the perfect site if you plan on travelling by motorhome. The family of three (+ a dog) have crossed much of Europe by motorhome and share some very concrete tips for this way of travelling, e.g. “A Motorhome Guide for Newbies”
Side note: They also travel with their dog, so if you plan on traveling with your pet, this site is worth visiting.
World Travel Family
This is a family of four travelling full-time and home-schooling their kids since 2012. It is a very complete site with a lot of concrete information about travelling, home-schooling and blogging. As they have been on the road for the past four years, there are lots of travel guides and advice for travelling as a family. Especially adventure travel like: Trekking with kids in the Everest region (!), roadtripping USA or travelling by train in India.
Mummy Travels is run by British Cathy who is a travel writer by profession and shares almost everything about family travel on the blog. From post like “The Beginner’s Guide to Travel with a Baby”, “63 things to do in Sn Francisco with Kids” and “A Two Week Cambodia Itinerary with Kids” she covers all the basics of family travel.
I will for sure use her checklists, including “Travel checklist: Your Essential Child First Aid Kit”
