Not everything about travelling with kids runs smoothly
In fact, it’s bloody hard work! – things can and do (regularly!) go wrong but we hope by sharing our adventures with you – the good the bad and the darn right vomit covered awful – we will encourage more of you to get out there with your kids and explore the world from a new perspective.
Our fabulous stories simply wouldn’t be possible without our little stars of the show, so we are proud to introduce Our Globetrotters:
Miss Z (a.k.a. Miss 10)Our flying cyclone of mischief, global adventurer and long-haul expert. A born water baby and moderate thrill seeker she is incredibly spirited (read defiant), knowledgeable (know it all) and always willing (sometimes with hissy fit) to give it a go – on her terms. She was flying well before she was walking and has stepped foot on five continents, so far. You can find her YouTube channel here (sorry, it has very little to do with travel!)
Travel aspiration; see it all, tick it off, be in every photo
Master L (a.k.a. Master 8)Our charming little man with a smile to kill, fearless on a cliff edge but moderately terrified of the dark and monsters. Loves bugs creepy crawlies and exploring. A copy cat, chatter box, trouble finder, crocodile eating vegetarian and avid plane spotter who still loves his naps.
Travel aspiration; Become a pilot (when he can master sitting still on a plane)
Master J (a.k.a. Master 6)Our wild child and whirlwind of trouble and mass destruction. Batten down the hatches and put on the kiddy locks when this little guy comes to town. He has no idea he’s circumnavigated the globe several times but he’s bounced his way across 4 continents. There’s no telling this little guy he’s too small to take the world on. Suffers from a major case of FOMO.
Travel aspiration: Climb every mountain
Keri (a.k.a. Mum, mummy, mumma, madam, Mrs Globetrotter)An over prepared but never quite organized big scaredy cat with a growing and unhealthy obsession with plastic bags. Blog it, snap it, collect it, capture it. Loves planning the trip and tries to be cool and relaxed when things aren’t quite going right, honest. Lover of beaches and sunsets, but hates sand. Wannabe wine connoisseur with a fairly mean sense of direction.
Travel aspiration; Survive with my sanity intact and learn to sleep on a plane
And last but not least…
Mr Globetrotter (a.k.a. Mr H, the pack horse, awesome daddy, dadda, hey you, Sir)Carrier of passports, exchanger of cash, hauler of multiple suitcases and master of the shoulder ride; he is our frequent flyer point collector extraordinaire, and occasional monster slayer. Nothing makes him happier than exhausted kids tucked into bed and a beer in his hand watching sport.
Travel aspiration; Try the local brew in every country
We are a far from perfect travelling crew, but we are having a lot of fun trying!
