If you read their blog, you’ll fall in love with their family travel ethos and probably start booking tickets.
Travel Websites We love
We are going to do a whole blog on resources we love and use soon, but for now, this should help.
By the way, we do use affiliate links. This means we earn a bit when you book or buy through some of our links. BUT the money comes out of the big companies pocket, not yours! It’s like the bar buying us a drink for hooking you up on a hot date!
Couch Surfing | I LOVE Couch surfing with a passion. There are a few safety considerations to get to grip with, but totally worth it. Both hosting and being hosted have lead to the most authentic travel experiences of my life. If you haven’t heard of it before, get yourself over there, sort a profile out and start hosting or looking for hosts. This BTW is NOT an affiliate link, I just freakin’ love this community! …
Lets Go Wonder | This beautiful family of female travellers started out as a group on Facebook and are now expanding into a website full of everything you need to get yourself equipped for your own travel Adventures. My favourite part of the website so far is the ‘Stories of Wonder’, reallys sparks that wanderlust! Go check it out!
Booking.com | As different companies have different upsides, we actually use quite a variety to book accommodation with. Some have more variety, other have easier interface or more unique options, some have more bizarre locations ect… But Booking.com, in our experiences is always the cheapest, so it’s always worth starting with them first when working out where to take your slumber.
World Nomads Insurance | We have chosen some shocking insurers in the past and will be writing up our mistakes soon. In the end we came round to the fact that World Nomads are popular and a bit more expensive for very good reason. That’s who we go with now, they’re trustworthy, efficient and the company is actually ran by someone who understands and loves travel.
Facebook communities We Love
Family Travel Group (FTG) | This is our baby and it is growing as fast as babies grow! We wanted a place of inspitationa and equipping for families who love travel and want to work out the best way to do it with kids! This group is awesome and pretty much essential for anyone who wants to travel with kids!
Go wonder | This awesome haven is aimed at female travellers. It really is a sweet digital sisterhood where you can ask questions and feel safe. You can get great tips on specific places or chat and get advice on all things travelling as a women. This group seems to attract a more gentle audience than some of the other female travel groups.
