Wanderlust Kids #3

It’s that time of the month again for #Wanderlustkids and I have no idea where April went. I cannot thank you all enough for linking up your great posts to Wanderlust Kids in April. I thoroughly enjoyed reading them all and have gained yet more inspiration. I need to win the lottery to do everything you’ve all suggested. There were also some brilliant hints and tips posts shared. Again, I’ve decided to share a synopsis of everyone’s post that linked up.

Sarah from Boo Roo and Tigger Too shared her post about travelling with Greater Anglia Network for a #RailAdventure. I had forgotten how enjoyable and easy train journeys can be, especially with not having to worry about parking. Plus Sarah and her family got to ride the most amazing steam engine of the Harry Pottery-type.

Kara, who blogs at Are We Nearly There Yet? Told us all about their Stay, Play and Explore short break in Leicestership during which they visited the National Space Centre, Bolsover Castle, Twycross Zoo and Kenilworth Castle, which looks great for dragon hunting.

Kellie, from My Little Babog, went to the Martinhal Cascais Luxury Hotel in Portugal to see just how family friendly they are. Between watching her Snapchat form her visit and reading this review, Martinhal certainly excel in family friendliness.And sicne we’ll soon be located in Portugal it could be the perfect place for us to have a family weekend away!

Charlene from High Heels and Fairy Tales shared their dolphin swimming experience from Mauritius. What an amazing experience and place to do it in!

Lisa who blogs at Baby Loves Travel shared a great hints and tips post for using the London underground with a baby in tow. I must admit we avoided London when BattleKid was younger but her post just goes to show London and its underground are more than doable with a baby.

Welsh Cakes and Wellies shared with us why Morzine in France makes the perfect destination for a family friendly ski holiday. I love the sound of the horse drawn carriage and snowmobiling.

Jo of Intrepid Bebe shared her hints and tips for flying with babies, and how it could actually be better than a day at home. Great tips for parents considering their first flight with a baby (or toddler) in tow.

Janine from Families Magazine share all you need to know about travelling to China as a family. She went solo with her son and visited all the places I’d love to go with BattleKid. Her trip sounds amazing, especially tobogganing down from the Great Wall of China. How cool would that be!

And last but by no means least, Rupreet of RupEAT shared Part 1 of their family holiday to South Africa. With their toddler, who I get to see on Snapchat on occasion. The food they had looked and sounded amazing and the chefs Warehouse would be right up my street!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the posts last month and cannot wait to see what will be linked up this month. Personally, I am linking up a post I wrote last month about where and how our Dragon Hunting Adventures began. I’ve been meaning to write this series up and since finishing work a few weeks back I’ve started catching up.dragon hunting

Wanderlust Kids #2

Last month was the first of my #WanderlustKids linky and I was over the moon to get some great posts being linked up. I honestly didn’t expect to get as many as I did in my first month and I have to thank those who took the time to link up. It was wonderful reading the different types of posts being linked up.

Instead of picking just my favourites, I thought I’d be a little different for the first roundup and give you a synopsis of what each blogger shared.

Kellie from My Little Babog shared her post, 30 Awesome Disneyland Paris Tips and Tricks – EuroDisney. Her post is full of hints and tips to visiting Disneyland Paris. From queuing on the left (I know, how strange), to downloading the Disneyland Paris app, to bringing your own character costume, Kellie has you covered.

Sophie (not her real name) from Stuff and Nothing linked up Amsterdam: City Break for Three Please. She and her husband visited Amsterdam with their toddler in 2014 and showed that Amsterdam is doable with toddlers, although it might not be the most child-friendly city.

Alana of Baby Holiday shared their Family travel plans for 2017. I can’t wait to read all about their cruise and visits to Disneyland Paris later in the year when she writes all about them.

Paul of Family Makes shared a Dad’s Musings Before the Big Ski Trip. In it he shares his apprehensions about their forthcoming family ski trip, particularly as Mum was recovering from a bad back problem. I’m interested to read how it went.

Welsh Cakes and Wellies linked up a post about A Family Day Out in the Market Town of Cowbridge. It sounds like a wonderful little town here in Wales and I must try to visit it soon.

Alina of We Made This Life linked up her Top Ten Travel Must Haves which was her entry into the Mark Warner Holiday’s Ambassador Programme. I loved her take on the ten travel must haves. Alina came at it from a different angle with dream elements and experiences at the heart of it rather than your typical suncream and sunglasses angle. It was a refreshing read.

Anne of Just Only Home linked up her post about her dream life when it comes to travel. Her dream is to buy a camper in order to do more travelling with her family. What a wonderful way to see more of this big bad world.

Charlene of High Heels and Fairy Tales shared her post about her family’s stay at La Provence D’Afrique in South Africa, which coincidentally isn’t a million miles away from Krugersdorp where I grew up. It’s a really nice looking place to stay and is one Charlene may well return to.

Helena of Babyfoote linked up her post, Should you go to Bangkok with young children? She shared hints and tips and also warnings of what to expect if visiting Bangkok with young children. Most importantly she showed that it’s more than doable.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading each post and commenting on them.

This month I am linking up My Holiday Diaries 2017. I wrote this post in January and there have been a few changes to our travel plans since it was published. So I thought I would update it and share it with you this month.

Wanderlust Kids #1

As many of you will know we are a family that likes to travel.

Before BattleKid came along my hubby and I went away several times a year, from typical beach holidays to city breaks, we loved to travel.

There is nothing nicer than getting away from it all and discovering new places, people and culture around the world. Some of our favourite places have been close to home but it’s a big world and there are so many corners of it we are yet to discover and see.

So when BattleKid came along we quickly decided, with a little inspiration from our sister, that he was just going to have to come along with us. Having a baby was not going to stop us from travelling the world and seeing new places and dare I say it we’ve become a bit more adventurous since BattleKid came along.

We have done quite a few beach holidays with him and some city breaks as well as weekend stay-cations in the UK and even ventured as far as New York with him last September.

And it’s not going to stop there.

I love reading about other peoples adventures with their children and love to see where they are going and what they thought of it afterwards. It sometimes inspires me to think further outside the box when planning our family days out or holidays.

With that in mind I decided to start a new Instagram community and also a linky so others can share their posts about travelling with kids. The idea for Wanderlust Kids was born.

Throughout the month you can use #WanderlustKids on your Instagram photos which involve travelling with kids. While this hashtag is not completely new, it is barely used, so I’d like to build a community around it and get more people tagging their wanderlust kids with it.

These photos can be abroad, home or days out, so long as they feature your children and have a travel theme attached with it. Each week I will pick my favourites to showcase.

On the 1st of each month the ‘Wanderlust Kids’ linky will open for you to link up a post, old or new, which involves travelling with kids. It can be about a day out, a family holiday, somewhere new your children discovered or a post with tips about travelling with kids.

As long as it features kids and is travel based it can be linked up. And please feel free to include your older kids as there isn’t an age limit for the term ‘kids’. The following month I will feature some of my favourites, linking back to the owner’s blog.

So, if you’d like to join in add your post via the link up button below, and also use #WanderlustKids on your Instagram photos. Please note, there will be a badge to add to your posts from next month once I sort out some technical issues with it.

I look forward to reading your posts, maybe gaining some inspiration, and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment.
