We are the Lynn Family, aka ‘TraveLynn Family
Jenny (Mum), Jay (Dad), Arthur (age 9) and Ezra (age 7)

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:

… and in May 2023 we are backpacking Southeast Asia for 10 weeks.

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 (he features in our logo!) 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 80k page views per month to this website and with an engaged following of over 21k 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 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.

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 travel as a family. 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.

What’s next for TraveLynn Family?

2023 brings a new adventure and we have deregistered the boys from school again to spend 10 weeks backpacking Southeast Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore).

It’s a region we used to regularly travel to, but it’s been over five years since our last visit. After the success of online learning last year, the boys will be taking it on again, and this time, Jay (Dad) is taking parental leave this time (which means no work for him!).
