There’s a misconception in today’s society that if you want to travel the world, you should do it before your children are born or after they leave the nest. But why wait? These four travel bloggers are living proof that your children could be the best traveling companions you could ask for. Get inspired to travel with family, book your flights to New Zealand, and start your adventure too.
Family Travel Blogs – 4 Bloggers Who Travel with Kids-
Lainie gave up the conventional life in 2009 to start an 8-year odyssey of world travel with her son, Miro. Although there were many factors that contributed to her giving up her day job and pursuing a nomadic lifestyle, one that really sticks out is that prior to their lifestyle change Miro often complained that she never spent enough time with him: “every time he uttered those words, my heart shattered into a million teeny pieces.”
For anyone considering giving up the 9-5 and travelling with children, their podcast is a good place to start. @ilainie
Another single parent family currently making trails around the globe, Theodora decided to take her then 9-year-old son Z travelling for a year. Once the year was over they both realised that they had developed a thirst for travelling. They’ve racked up an impressive list of destinations, and have no intention of coming home any time soon. @mummy_t
Proving that parents of toddlers can embrace the travel bug too, Linda and Phil bundled up 2-year-old Luca and got on their bikes: literally. They’ve made impressive progress, cycling through Europe first and after a short break cycling through South-East Asia.
Linda is currently expecting baby number two, but they’re not letting that slow them down. Once the little one arrives they are planning to cycle the Western seaboard of America from Canada until they reach Patagonia.
Although travelling the world with two children under six might sound crazy, the parents of Noah and Hayley decided that getting a mortgage and sending their children to day-care was even crazier. Tim Ferris’s ‘Four Hour Work Week’ was the only catalyst required, and since 2009 this happy family of four have been travelling around Australia and Asia, with an eye on the rest of the world; they’ve recently arrived in Europe. @ccburns
