When seeking out travel inspiration, I don’t have to look very far. I know my fellow travel bloggers will provide it in spades. In fact, my travel wish list for 2018 is full of destinations I’ve read about on blogs and seen on vlogs. Word of mouth recommendation is such a powerful tool and seeing how others get on travelling as a family is the ultimate seal of approval. If you are looking for inspiration then – as well as getting your travel fix here – here are five family travel bloggers to check out in 2018.
Practically Perfect Mums

She shares popular travel videos and vlogs on her YouTube Channel PPMsTV.
Jane also writes about what’s going on in Bristol and North Somerset where she lives. She co-founded and co-runs Bristol Travel Massive Chapter as well as being actively involved in the Bristol Bloggers and Influencers group.

Travel Mad Mum
When Karen, UK Travel Blogger of the Year 2017, unexpectedly found out she was pregnant, the thought of giving up her lifestyle and extensive travel plans was daunting. After some consideration, she felt really excited about incorporating her baby into her lifestyle rather than changing it.
She used her maternity leave, with both children, to take a gap year backpacking around the world. Daughter Esme has been to 30+ countries, whilst seven month old Quinn has been to 15+. Travel Mad Mum finds using maternity leave in this way provides an amazing time for family bonding. ‘It’s easier than being at home, managing a household, especially as both parents are around at all times”. Karen writes destination guides, product reviews and top tips to make it easy for parents who love to travel.
