I’m Lindsey, mother of two small boys, Archie (10) and Isaac (5) and wife to Leon. Over the last decade when trying to plan trips away with our kids, I have found myself at the mercy of overpriced package holidays at one end of the spectrum or depressing holiday cottages at the other. I would find myself typing ‘Cool Kids Travel’ to see if I could find some ideas or inspiration for a type of trip that would incorporate the things I like; nice accommodation, great places to eat and interesting places to visit. In the absence of finding anything that fully gave me what I wanted, I decided to do it myself. Welcome to Cool* Kids Travel.
*I do not think I am cool. Or that my life is cool. I just used the word cool in a search engine lots of times! Which is quite uncool actually.
I started this blog as a way of documenting our travels, home and abroad along with days out and weekends away. We love a city break, a road trip, a cottage by the sea and more than anything, eating local food in incredible places. We’ve had disastrous camping trips, eaten prawns with the shells on by accident and walked across a museum exhibit of an actual Roman Road because we didn’t understand the sign. We’ve watched the sun set over the Pacific, driven round hairpin bends to hidden Mallorcan coves and taken a train journey around Italy in a heatwave.
I’d love it to become a place where other parents share their trips with their kids so it becomes a one stop shop for parents who want to travel independently and visit cool places with their kids.
I hope you enjoy it!
