We are the Lynn Family, aka ‘TraveLynn Family
Jenny (Mum), Jay (Dad), Arthur (age 10) and Ezra (age 8)

Don’t wait to travel with your kids until they’re the ‘perfect age’! You never know what’s around the corner to mess up your plans; I think the pandemic has taught everyone that. And really, does the ‘perfect age’ even exist?

Want to travel with your kids?

You’ve come to the right place for inspiration. Here we share our family travel tips, personal reviews, and itineraries for global travel adventures!

We’re a UK family that have been travelling with our two boys ever since they were born. Our ‘big’ trips include:

But whilst we love off-the-beaten-track adventures, we also love exploring Europe on our doorstep, be it road tripping in our Bongo camper or a short European city break.

TraveLynn Family was established in 2016 and has grown to be one of the top family travel blogs in the UK, receiving over 85k page views per month to this website and with an engaged following of over 23k on Instagram.

Our style of travel

Travel for us isn’t a once-in-a-lifetime experience, nor have we sold up and hit the road fulltime, homeschooling our kids. In fact, our boys love their school, their friends and their clubs, and us parents need the childcare of school to be able to work. But travel is a huge part of our lives and since the boys were born, we have found ways to travel as much as possible; living overseas, saving funds and quitting jobs, deregistering our boys from school, creating remote work, and of course, learning the tricks and rewards of budget family travel… we’ve learned to be quite creative!

With the boys now of schooling age and based in the UK’s Peak District we make the most of the 14 weeks of school holidays in the UK, but we also take the boys out of school to travel 4-5 months at a time and embrace the philosophy of worldschooling.

Do we homeschool when we travel? Oh no. Lockdowns sucked any ability we ever had to homeschool our kids. Online learning works brilliantly for us! You can read about our approach to online schooling here.

Our longer adventures allow us to embrace slow family travel. Rather than jumping from one place to another to cram as much as possible in, we are happy to spend weeks (and sometimes months) in the one country. This is a deeper travel, a more rewarding travel, where the natural daily routines of staying in the one place for a big chunk of time allows you to feel part of the local community. It’s also a much cheaper way to travel as you’re money goes further.

Current travel plans for TraveLynn Family

2023 was quite a year for travel, with our main adventure being the 10 weeks backpacking Southeast Asia (which included Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore). For this, the boys were deregistered from school and Jay took unpaid parental leave.

And as for 2024? Well so far there have been trips to Essaouira, Morocco, and Bucharest, Romania. And in April we’re moving to Penang, Malaysia! We’ve been granted digital nomad visas and found the boys a lovely school. We’re so excited about this new adventure!
