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?Β 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.

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. β˜”πŸ’§β˜”πŸ’§ . . 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 πŸ˜‰ 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
