About the blog:
Babies, children, toddlers, travelling. All at the same time. Once I would have sniffed dismissively – “well of course, when I’m a parent, I’ll just carry on as I always have, just with a baby in tow”. WOW was I naive. I’d like to show my old self a little glimpse into current-self’s life and laugh heartily in old self’s face.
Of course travelling with children is perfectly possible, it’s just that it presents a few extra challenges, the patience of a very patient person and a bit of getting used to on the part of the parents.
I’m Angharad, mama of two, travel lover, neon obsessive, sun worshipper and gin enthusiast. I am happiest outside in the sunshine and I do a mean velociraptor impression. Did I mention my most favourite drink on this Earth is gin? I am extremely hazardous on a bicycle, which has nothing to do with the gin…well, not always.
For several years I’ve been penning my thoughts on special places to see around the globe, hoping to inspire folk. I shout from the rooftops about my home city as Content Editor for Visit Bristol, was Editor of the Sawday’s French guides and recounted pre-parenting travel tales on my previous blog, ATP Travels.
Since 2013 I’ve been climbing the learning cliff face of parenthood, googling the hell out of everything from the gritty lows of nappy contents to sleep-training tactics. To my relief, many questions I searched for had already been posed by a ton of parents before me. It is partly for this reason that I started this blog, to share what I learn along the way, hoping to help and inspire people to travel with young children.
