Welcome to familytrips.info!
A little site set up with the hope of inspiring families to go on big adventures and make memories together.
I am an avid traveler. Over the last 15 years, I have extensively visited Europe, Canada, USA, Mexico, Egypt and South East Asia. I have also travelled extensively for business.
However, like most of us my relationship with travel has changed dramatically over the last years, not only due to COVID-19 but also due to the transition from a care-free single traveler to a family of four with young children. I therefore set up this website to explore what great travel can look like, following my principles, in the new world.
Value – discover trip options that create memories for a great price, taking advantage of unique opportunities of the destination. Travelling as a family can be expensive so I will explore how to keep costs down and achieve excellent value without making compromises that are uncomfortable for a young family to deal with.
Plan – but not too much. Broadly work out day by day what you want to see and do, to ensure you get value from your trip but leaving time to explore, discover or just relax if needed.
Reason – and make that a compelling one. If lockdowns and travel restrictions teach one thing, it is there is a plethora of options on our doorsteps that are often overlooked. Being fortunate to live in Catalunya, I feel this is especially true. Therefore, by all means travel, but not at the detriment of your local attractions or just to replicate that experience in another place.
I hope you like it and can take inspirations from some of my ideas!
