I’m Cathy, an award-winning travel-obsessed writer who’s never knowingly underpacked.
I’m also mum to the mini traveller – aka five-year-old Minnie* – and trying to work out how to cling on to normal globetrotting life by my fingernails. Don’t tell me it’s not possible…
I love travel. I really really love travel. I’ve visited over 60 countries (still over 130 to go) and writing about travel is my full-time career, with my work published in a string of national papers and magazines, including the Independent, National Geographic Traveller, Metro, Family Traveller and The Sunday Times Travel magazine.
But when I told everyone I was pregnant, they assumed I’d have to swap my passport for a pushchair. I stubbornly insisted I needn’t put my suitcase away…even if I knew I’d have to slow down a bit.
So what is the reality of travelling with a bump, baby, toddler and now a single-minded whirlwind of energy?
From our experiences on travelling in the UK and around the world, to reviews of the most useful paraphernalia, tips and advice (including what not to do), that’s what I share in this blog.
I’m also part of the Family Travel Collective – a network of five of the UK’s top family travel bloggers, working together on everything from social media campaigns to trips and destination guides.
