Welcome To My First Post

So here we are, starting a travel blog to work alongside my other blog Travel is important to us as a family and I believe that children learn a lot from travelling. It is so important for their life experiences, and they learn more than being in a classroom learning about places. Yes I do disagree with school fines, yet I see why they are in place. My philosophy is that if you can only afford a holiday in term time, then just pay the fine. The fine is still a great deal cheaper than booking a holiday in the school breaks. But saying that, I don't take holidays in the school term because you can get a cheap one by looking on line yourself. And that is what brings us to this blog, I am taking Tilly Inter-railing in the summer and we will be getting in quite a few places at the fraction of the price of a holiday booked through a travel agent. Another reason for choosing now to travel is that I am 44 this year and Tilly is 6 so If I don't do it now, then we will never do it because by the time Tilly is a teenager she wont want to be going back packing with her 50 something mother.

I have always traveled with my children and as well as Tilly who is 6 years old, I have Kimmy who is nearly 24, Zach is 22 and Beth is 20, Here is a picture of them last time we did a huge back packing trip.

We have had a tough year as a family and I am hoping to use this as a kind of therapy for her too. In reality She will probably want to come home after a week hahaha.

I will cover all sorts of travel on here as well as days out, so hopefully you will stick with us and follow as we travel.
