glamping in Lanzarote

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #28

Does anyone else in the Northern Hemisphere feel like we’ve skipped through Winter and into Spring? And it’s really not too long until the two week Easter break. Have you got anything booked? I’m in serious planning mode. But more on that next time…

Although if you’re looking to squeeze in a little Spring city break, make sure you read one of my latest posts – 35 alternative European city breaks for families – compiled with the help of some top family travel bloggers. I certainly got a few more ideas up my sleeve from this!

What I’ve been up to

Since I last hosted the link up, I’ve managed to fit in a couple of European trips. First to Lanzarote, for a one-on-one adventure, just with Ezra. I was actually a bit nervous about this trip. Not because it was my first time travelling as a solo parent, but because of the island’s reputation as a package holiday destination for sun-seeking Brits. Not really our thing. But I soon realised that there is so much more to the island than waterparks and resorts, and we were really able to get off the beaten track in Lanzarote. It proved to be an incredible destination!

We had the BEST day on La Gracious yesterday 💙 It's just a 25 minute ferry ride from Lanzarote, but feels a million miles away. .. There are no paved roads on the island, and I wasn't up for riding a bike through sand 😂, so we clubbed together with some other travellers we met on the ferry and hired a 4×4 with driver to take us around. So much fun bouncing along the tracks, and found some stunning beaches ⛱️. Awesome place 😍 .. .. .. @lanzarote_retreats @turismolzt #Lanzarote #lagraciosa #lagraciosaisland #lanzarotephotographer #Canaryislands #canarias #canariasviva #beachlife #fearlessfamtrav #travelmadfam #wanderlustmomblogger #familytravelblogger #UKFTB #mummyblogger #adventureanywhere #takeyourkidseverywhere #letthemexplore #freespiritedchildhood #lpkids #lppathfinders #lpfanphoto #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #beautifuldestinations #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #traveljunkies #tmom #worldschooling

But what made our visit so special, was our hosted stay in a glamping yurt at Finca de Arrieta, an eco-resort in the North of the island. Just amazing! You can read my review here.

Farewell #Lanzarote 🌵💙 What a stunning and beautifully wild island you are. .. Ez and I had the BEST two weeks staying in our yurt at @lanzarote_retreats #ad. Such a special place, with a wonderful eco-concious community and perfect for young families. Plus this one-on-one time has been so much fun with Ez 🤗 We definitely hope to be back someday. .. But now to catch a flight and be reunited with my other two boys ✈️💚 .. .. .. #visitspain #latitudeoflife #latituddevida #Canaryislands #lanzarotephotographer #SpainNature #Spain #aquicanarias #lovecanaryisland #yurtlife #yurt #familytravel #fearlessfamtrav #lpkids #lppathfinders #snaphappybritmums #ourtribetravels #ecoresort #uktravelblogger #familytravelblogger #travelmama #travelmun #soloparenting #parentblogger #beautifuldestinations #runmywildchild #worldschooling #wanderlustmomblogger

And we also managed to get away altogether as a family for the February half term holidays. Flights were crazy expensive to go anywhere, but the Dover/Calais ferry was very reasonable. So we drove down to France in the car and had a fantastic week in the Vendée, staying in a beautifully quaint cottage in Lairoux  (read my review of our stay at L’Ecurie Holiday Home), and spending most of the days in the sunshine on the beach (in February!)

Our home from home for the half term week 🇫🇷 .. We are being hosted by the lovely Annette and Jason at @maisonlairoux (#ad hosted) in the #vendée and have received the warmest welcome. Whilst hubby and I appreciated the wine and croissants on arrival, the boys are all about the games room which has a pool table, dinosaurs, a costume box and loads of kids DVDs and books. .. And we have hit the jackpot with the weather ☀️☀️☀️. Have you seen our stories? We've been down the beach today and it's been absolutely glorious.

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #24

Happy New Year! And welcome back to the first Fearless Family Travel link up of 2019! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed the celebrations with your loved ones? 2018 was a fantastic year of travel for us, and to be honest, I’m not really sure 2019 is going to top it. But I’ve made a few New Years travel resolutions, and we have a some exciting destinations booked for 2019. How about you? Check out our family adventure travel ideas for 2019 if you’re looking for inspiration!

View this post on Instagram

We had no idea that 2018 was going to amount to such an epic year of travel. This time last year, we were on a beach in Goa with plans to stay in India another year! .. As you can see from my #bestnine2018 things panned out a little differently. Now, this isn't my official best nine from an app calculating my most liked photos – that one was heavily skewed towards Nepal and there wasn't a Land Rover in sight 😂. Although I appreciate you enjoyed our Nepal adventures 😘. This is my 'favourite nine' that I feel best reflects our year. If you want to check out the highlights from our year, click the link in our bio 🤗 .. Thanks to all of you who follow our little squares of adventure. I love connecting here with like minded parents. Wishing you all a wonderful 2019 full of adventures with your little ones. ..

There have been a couple of changes to the link up since last time. We are so excited to bring on board Nicky from Go Live Young and Cath from Passports and Adventures. Bringing on board these two awesome bloggers means that the Fearless Family Travel link up will now take place fortnightly on a Monday.

And that’s not all…

We’re so excited to announce that we have partnered up with Lonely Planet Kids! Each fortnight, we’ll be giving away one Lonely Planet kids book to the blogger of our favourite post!

What I’ve been up to

The last time I hosted this link up, we were in Iceland! What an INCREDIBLE trip that was. Hey Iceland put together a fantastic self-drive itinerary for us. Check out our video:

 

And we still managed a couple of European city breaks before the year end. Firstly to Lisbon (hosted by Lisboa Tourism); a city I totally fell in love with. Who knew that there are so many things to do in Lisbon with kids?! It seriously has the best science museum we’ve ever been to, and the boys absolutely loved riding the metro and trams. Plus, it was so warm that we were able to dine al fresco in the evening! Bliss. You can read all about our time in Lisbon as I’m linking up this week with my post – Lisbon with kids: a winter city break.

View this post on Instagram

It really has been a fleeting visit to #Lisbon but that's the beauty of living in the UK – being able to pop to a totally different country for a long weekend. But what's crazy, is that it's cheaper for us to fly to Lisbon for a weekend, rather than get the train to London – still can't get my head around that 🤔 .. Anyways, it's been an awesome few days and can't believe how much we've packed in. Gone are the days of popping back to the hotel for an afternoon nap/downtime; yesterday we were on the go for 12 hours! .. I've got loads more photos to share with you. But for now, here's a pic from one of my favourite viewpoints in #Lisboa. Now to get to the airport for our @easyjet flight back to Manchester. .. Big thank you to @visit_lisboa #ad for organising such an incredible weekend for us 🤗 .. .. .. #visitlisboa #portugal #visitportugal #igerslisboa #super_lisboa #lisbonlovers #lisboalive #cityescape #visiteurope #letsgotolisbon #fearlessfamtrav #familytravel #myfamilywanderlust #beautifuldestinations #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #lpkids #lppathfinders #travelmadfam #familytravelblogger #pblogger #tmom #worldschooling #ourplanetdaily #ourtribetravels #letthemexplore #lovelysquares

And between Christmas and New Year, we managed to squeeze in a trip Nuremberg, Germany (hosted by Nuremberg Tourist Office and Welcome to Holiday Inn Nürnberg). Now I’ll be honest, the only thing I knew about this city were the Nuremberg Trials. But my eyes have been opened to one of the most elegant cities we have ever visited, with so many things to do with kids!

Hello from #Nuremberg 🇩🇪 👋 .. Aren't those days between Christmas and New Year funny? That weird limbo feeling where you never know what day it is?

save money on a family trip to Iceland

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #22

Hello from Iceland! Thanks to Hey Iceland, we’re spending our half term road tripping this awesome island. Already we’ve seen lots of shooting geysers and gushing waterfalls, and we’ve even driven on snowy roads and ridden Icelandic horses… but where are those Northern Lights? We’re yet to see them as it’s been too cloudy each night, so keep your fingers and toes crossed for us. I’m posting lots of our photos to facebook and instagram, and be sure to follow our instastories.

Now Iceland is known for it’s extortionate prices and travellers love to compare how much they have spent on a beer. But we’re actually managing to keep this trip to budget, thanks to advice from other travel bloggers who have visited Iceland, and helped me out with a recent post – How to save money on a family trip to Iceland.

However, if you’ve been following me on instagram last month, you’ll know I’ve been sharing a few last photos from our epic overland trip. So for November’s Fearless Family Travel, I’m linking up my FAQ: Travelling Africa with kids post. Since our overlanding adventures across Africa in a Land Rover earlier this year I’ve received so many questions, from where to hire a 4×4, to malaria concerns, to where we pee when on the road! All these questions and much more are answered in this post. I hope you enjoy it!

Sorry folks… More Africa spam is coming your way! I'm finally getting round to writing an FAQs post for the website and finding lots of pics I've yet to share with you. .. I've had so many questions about our African adventures – from taking antimalarials, to where to rent a 4×4, to how much it cost, to what do to about needing a wee on the road. I hope to cover all your questions and more… but if there are any specific questions, let me know in the comments below or feel free to message me if you want to keep it anonymous 😘 .. .. .. #fearlessfamtrav #landroverdefender #landrover70years #landroverphotos #overlanding #roadtrip #onelifeliveit #beyondlimits #thisisafrica #namibiandesert #skeletoncoast #natgeotravel #guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #lpkids #lppathfinders #namibiatourism #showthemtheworld #travelkids #familytravel #adventureparenting #travelmadfam #passionpassport #pblogger #travelblogger #uktravelblogger #lovelysquares #adventureanywhere #offroading #traveljunkies

Loved all your comments from yesterday's post about the best age to travel with kids. I think the main things to take away is DON'T wait for that perfect age to travel. Each age has its pros and cons; although not many (including me!) are fond of the crawling stage 😂 .. Lots of people thought we should have waited till the boys were older to take them to Africa.

Short walks in the Peak District for young kids

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #20

And just like that, summer is drawing to a close and our eldest will be starting school in a few days! We feel so fortunate that we were able to do so much travel with our boys before they were in the school system. We have so many amazing memories stored from our year in India, and our months travelling around Africa in a Land Rover were truly the trip of a lifetime! We’ve now a new challenge ahead to see how we continue our travels whilst we negotiate school terms! We’re still trying to work all that out, but for now we’re just soaking up all the gorgeous English countryside on our doorstep and going for lots of long family walks in the Peak District.

View this post on Instagram

Nope, I haven't jumped on the lavender train (although it is very lovely seeing everyone's photos of lavender fields lately)… This is heather and it can be found all over the #peakdistrictnationalpark at the moment. Isn't it beautiful? 💜💜 This 📷 was taken over the weekend whilst doing one of our favourite #peakdistrict hikes on Stanton Moor. .. .. .. #ig_peakdistrict #derbyshire #visitderbyshire #ukexplore #heather ##peakdistrictphotography #peakdistrictwalks #freshairandfreedom #fearlessfamtrav #explorerkids #hikingwithkids #lpkids #lppathfinders #worldschooling #visitbritain #endlesssummer #englishcountryside #countrylife #country_features #runmywildchild #mummyblogger #mumsofboys #mumtographer #letthembelittle #outdoorkids #playoutside #ukftb #snaphappybritmums

Despite just moving back to the UK, we managed to take a little holiday to the Loire Valley in France. Mornings were spent eating chocolate croissants, before visiting a family-friendly château, then back to the campsite for a play in the pool and a late dinner by the bouncy castle with flowing wine. Bliss. We also had a fantastic time at the magically weird and wacky Just So Festival, where we camped in our new Vango Air tent. A ridiculous amount of fun was had and we’ll definitely be back next year! As for the tent. Wow. It’s the family tent that we never knew we needed and has got us extremely excited about future camping adventures!

So I managed to tear the boys away from the pool today and got my #chateau fix at @chateaucheverny Just beautiful! 🏰 There was more than enough to keep the boys entertained – meeting the resident hounds 🐕, getting lost in a maze, finding @lego figurines inside the château, acres of grounds to run in and… the most delicious ice-cream ever 🍦🍦🍦And we still had time for the pool once we got back to our campsite ⛺✊ .. .. .. #loire #loirevalley #LoireMyLove #francemylove #valdeloire #visitfrance #jaimelafrance #magnifiquefrance #touraineloirevalley #france_vacations #igfrance #topfrancephoto #france_vavations #beautifuldestinations #fearlessfamtrav #passionpassport #traveljunkies #uktravelblogger #castle #familytravel #showthemtheworld #parentswhowander #lppathfinders #ukftb #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #lavender #lpkids #lppathfinders

This month I’m linking up with my recent post reviewing our new Vango Endoras 500XL Air tent. It’s super easy to put up (even easier to put down) and we love all the indoor space. Have you checked out the video of my boys putting it up? Totally unaided of course 😉

Namibia itinerary with kids

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #18

I can’t believe our African overlanding travels have come to an end! What an epic adventure it has been. I’ve put together our top ten family highlights from Africa in this post, Can you guess what number 1 is?

We’ve only been back a few days, but after a year living in India and almost 4 months traversing Africa, it feels good to be home; we’re enjoying this stunning English weather, catching up with our friends and family, and finally getting to use a washing machine (it’s been a while!)

This month I’m linking up our Namibia itinerary with kids, which forms the final leg of our African adventures. Namibia was never on the cards for this trip as we had visited pre-kids. But we made a last minute decision to change plans and Namibia certainly delivered. We had so many WOW-moments and Namibia has now become our favourite family adventure travel destination!

We visited these incredible #sanddunes in #Namibia 5 years ago. I remember it so distinctly as I projectile-vomited everywhere 😷😅 I was 8 weeks pregnant with Arthur and morning sickness was taking its toll in the heat. I remember thinking to myself – 'pull yourself together woman, you won't be coming to places like this once you have kids'. 🔸 Oh, how wrong was I! Felt very special being back here with my boys 💛 🔸 .. .. .. #sossusvlei #sossusvleidunes #namibiandesert #southernafrica #pregnancy #sandfordays #dune45 #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #lpkids #lppathfinders #ukftb #fearlessfamtrav #familytravel #passionpassport #travelkids #explorerkids #takeyourkidseverywhere #parentswhowander #parentblogger #uktravelblogger #travelmama #travelafrica #onlyafrica #beautifuldestinations #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #runwildmychild

Game Haven Lodge review

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #16

Hello from Tanzania! We’ve been on the road through Southern Africa for 7 weeks now and what an adventure it has been! From spotting lions and elephants in the Kruger, to discovering untouched palm-fringed beaches in Mozambique, to meeting the wonderfully friendly people of Malawi. We’ve still got Zambia and Botswana on the agenda and a couple of months left. Although I never want it to end!

View this post on Instagram

Now THIS is a wonderful introduction to #Malawi. We've been invited to stay at @ghl_malawi, a fantastic family-friendly resort set on the private Chimwenya Game Park. There's a kids' playground with climbing wall, swimming pool and wild animals in the back garden! Pretty cool munching on your brekkie whilst watching zebras grazing only a few metres away. .. .. We've just got back from a superb 2 hour game walk through the reserve (free for all guests). We met zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and much more. So special seeing these creatures on foot up close 🐾👌 .. .. Thank you to @malawitourism for organsing. .. .. .. #visitmalawi #malawitourism #thisisafrica #discoverafrica #africawithkids #iloveafrica #gamewalk #safari #safarikids #wildlifephotography #guardiantravelsnaps #lpkids #lppathfinders #fearlessfamtrav #showthemtheworld #curiouskids #letthemexplore #explorerkids #ourplanetdaily #ourtribetravels #worldschooling #unschooling #familytravel #travelwithkids #toddlertravel #throughtheireyes #travelmadfam

🌼🐣🐇HAPPY EASTER 🐇🐣🌼 .. .. We're on the road again today. We bid farewell to the stunning coastline of Mozambique a couple of days ago and are making our way to the Malawi border. .. .. It's a bit of a slog to the border. Loooooong vast distances with not not much in between except the odd nondescript dusty village. And the roads have seriously deteriorated. Pot holes everywhere and local kids along the way fill them with sand in the hope of getting a few coins from the rare passerby. .. .. That is until we reached the verdant hills bordering Zimbabwe. Here we glide along the smooth tarmac – a new road built with Chinese money. .. .. And still the police seem disinterested in us…😊😊 .. .. .. #vilanculos #vilankulo #inhambane #indianocean #beachkids #mocambique #mozambique #tripofalifetime #overlanding #tblogger #travelmama #travelafrica #exploreafrica #thisisafrica #discoverafrica #fearlessfamtrav #passionpassport #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #lppathfinders #uktravelblogger #ourplanetdaily #ourtribetravels #showthemtheworld #bringthekids #adventureparenting #adventurekids

Our @landrover gets a fair bit of attention wherever we go. One of the highlights of the trip so far has been driving through villages, witnessing everyday life and meeting locals. People in #Malawi are so happy and friendly! .. ..

Poon Hill with kids

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #14

Who’s feeling the chill? We’re back in the UK after bidding our farewells to Bangalore, India, and absolutely loving all this snow! We do miss our lives back in India, but it’s absolutely wonderful catching up with our friends and family and enjoying some good ol’ English grub (hello Sunday roast!)

It’s been quite a rollercoaster of adventure in the Lynn household since I hosted my last linkup in January. My Mum came out to visit us in Bangalore and we spent some time chilling on the beach in Agonda, Goa. We stayed on a little wooden hut right on the beach and the owner lent the boys some boogie boards – what a huge hit they were!

View this post on Instagram

Checking out the morning surf from Agonda Beach, Goa 🌴🌞🌊 . . We're staying in a little hut right on the beach. It's absolute bliss 🙏. The owner has given the boys some boogie boards and they're proving a MASSIVE hit! The waves are just right 👌. Hours of fun! Although I look forward to when they've mastered it and I can leave them to chill on the beach 😂 . . #agonda #agondabeach #goa #visitgoa #incredibleindia #experienceindia #india_ig #boogieboard #fishingboat #brothers #beachkids #surfkids #surfsup #fearlessfamtrav #showthemtheworld #explorerkids #freespiritedchildhood #freshairandfreedom #lpkids #lppathfinder #travelwithkids #familytravel #familytravelblogger #awanderfulchildhood #parentswhowander #ukftb #uktravelblogger #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #guardiantravelsnaps

Then just a few days after my Mum returned home, we flew to Kathmandu to explore Nepal. Now Nepal is a difficult country to travel even without kids, due to the poor infrastructure. A seemingly short distance between towns can take a day travelling by bus around hairpin bends and bouncing over potholes. But we were rewarded with one of our best adventures to date. We loved the mystical temples, and spotted one-horned rhinos on safari, but the highlight has to be our 5 day trek in the Himalayas to Poon Hill (3210m). This month I’m linking up my latest post which details our route to Poon Hill as well as all our tips and lessons learned for trekking the Himalayas with young kids.

View this post on Instagram

We actually bloody did it! YES!! ✊ . . 5 days of trekking up and down thousands upon thousands of steps, to a high point of 3210 meters at Poon Hill. I may no longer be able to walk as my muscles have turned to jelly, but I am absolutely bursting with pride for my boys. Such awesome trekkers! 😍 . . Will share more about our Himalayan adventures over the coming days, but for now this mamma needs a hot bath and🍷🍷🍷. . . . #poonhill #ghorepani #annapurna #himalayasnepal #himalaya #nepalisbeautiful #nepalnow #exploringfamilies #showthemtheworld #fearlessfamtrav #lppathfinder #lpkids #pottyadventures #trekkingnepal #trekkinghimalayas #adventurekids #adventureparenting #travelkids #bbctravel #guardiantravelsnaps #letthemexplore #bravekids #uktravelblogger #ourtribetravels #ourplanetdaily #passionpassport #traveljunkies #explorerkids #littleexplorers #tinytravels

Once we were back in Bangalore, we had a less than a week to pack up our lives and say our goodbyes, before heading home to the UK. We had such mixed feelings about leaving, especially as we left earlier than anticipated. But what a truly incredible year it has been!

On the way back to London, we had a stopover in Abu Dhabi, just as we did when we first moved out to India; I love when an adventure comes full circle. We had a couple of days to decompress and enjoy some luxury at Le Meridien and Sheraton.

Hello Abu Dhabi! 🌞🏨✈👐 .. .. We love this sparkling city in the desert, so we're taking a couple of days here to decompress after our week of packing and goodbyes in Bangalore. .. .. We have spent the afternoon at the rather lush @lemeridienabudhabi. Started with a delicious lunch at Papagallo (check out today's instastories) and then headed to the beach club for a play in the sand and splash in the sea and pool. We then finished up the day meeting one of my fave bloggers who is an expert on family travel in the Middle East – Keri @ourglobetrotters – and her gorgeous family. Loved how our kids just all went off and played like old chums. .. .. Awesome day! Thank you so much to @lemeridienabudhabi for inviting us over 😊 .. .. .. #lemeridien #visitabudhabi #inabudhabi #uae #abudhabiinstagram #abudhabiimages #amazingabudhabi #igersuae #simplyabudhabi #instaabudhabi #magicofchildhood #letthemplay #fearlessfamtrav #luxlife #luxurytravel #beachkids #beachdays #littletraveller #stopover #etihad #lppathfinders #lpkids #wearetravelmums #tmom #middleeasttravel #parentswhowander #awanderfulchildhood #letthekids #bringthekids #familytravel

Best beaches in Goa for kids

FEARLESS FAMILY TRAVEL #12

HAPPY NEW YEAR FELLOW FAMILY TRAVEL BLOGGERS!! And welcome to Fearless Family Travel #12 with me, Jenny Lynn. It’s my first time hosting a link-up! We’re currently enjoying some beach time in Goa where we saw in the New Year; hence the un-wintery feature photo! So much fun! I hope you all enjoyed the festivities with your loved ones and are all set for the year ahead?

A big THANK YOU to Leona from Wandermust Family for inviting me on board as a full-time co-host. I can’t wait to read about all your family travel adventures! For those of you that perhaps don’t know me, I’m a travel addict from the UK and live with my hubby and two boys (aged 2 and 4) in Bangalore, India. With amazing destinations on our doorstep (Kochi, Agra) or a short flight away (Sri Lanka, Thailand), we take every available opportunity to travel! You can read more about our story and our move to Bangalore.

How are you getting on with those New Years Resolutions? I reckon that 2018 should be The Year of Travel! We’re still undecided with what our travel plans are for 2018, although we are very excited about our travels to Nepal later this month! We visited pre-kids and trekked to Everest Base Camp. I can’t wait to return with the boys, although we’ll be opting for some shorter, lower altitude treks this time.

EBC

This month I’m linking up a post on our recent travels to Ko Lanta in Thailand. Have you been? We stayed at Klong Dao Beach, and it has to be one of the most family friendly beaches we’ve ever stayed at! From the warm, shallow waters with a sandy bed, to the beach bars with slides and toys for the kids. I hope you enjoy it!

And just like that, we are back at the airport and our short time in Thailand has come to an end. . . It actually rained pretty much the ENTIRE week. Little did we realise, that the sun was only going to come out for a short while on that first day (when I took this photo). But by no means was the week a wash out. ☔💧☔💧 . . What truly made it special was the company. Catching up with old besties that we hadn't seen in over 5 years and watching our kids get on like a house on fire. Holidaying with a family with kids the same age sure makes parenting easier 😉 Happy happy days 😊😊😊 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #kolanta #klongdaobeach #amazingthailand #visitthailand #thailand_ig #beachtimes #beachkids #familytime #familytravelblogger #ukftb #explorerkids #fearlessfamtrav #ftb100 #trips100 #ourtribetravels #lppathfinder #lpkids #rainraingoaway #adventurekids #parentswhowander #awanderfulchildhood #tinytravels #wheresthesun #showthemtheworld #pblogger #tmom #travelmum #letthemplay #bringthekids #travelkids
