Welcome to TraveLynn Family!

Welcome to TraveLynn Family!

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?

This is our little corner of the internet where we share our adventure travels as a family. We’re a UK family that have been travelling with our two boys ever since they were born ; from living in India, trekking the Himalayas, and traversing Africa in a Land Rover.

We have always believed that travel should not wait until the kids are older; and I think the pandemic has taught us that anything can happen to turn our lives up-side-down! We’re sure pleased we didn’t wait until our boys are the ‘perfect age’; whatever that age actually is.

But now things are different. Changing travel restrictions have become the world we live in, and the days of just turning up at a dusty border crossing and winging a visa on the spot are gone for the foreseeable future.

So our travel now is closer to home and since June 2020 we have embraced family #vanlife with our Mazda Bongo 4×4 camper. The boys are school age (6 and 8) and we travel in our Bongo every school holidays (which is a good 15 weeks here in the UK), always favouring the ferry crossing over to the continent for our fix of sunshine, culture, and a nice stock up of wine.

TraveLynn Family was established in 2016 and has grown to be one of the top UK family travel blogs in the UK.
