2018 Family travel inspiration: Top 5 travel blogs to read

When looking for family holiday ideas the first place I always head to are the websites of my fellow family travel bloggers. I love reading their personal experiences of family holidays, being inspired by their photos/videos and following their tried and tested tips for travelling with kids.

Since I started Travel Loving Family nearly three years ago travel blogging has become increasingly popular and there are a heck of a lot more family travel bloggers on the scene. So who should you follow? (Apart from us of course!).  Below I have shared five blogs which I read on a regular basis and think you’ll enjoy reading too.  All five mums are passionate about travelling with their kids and all share inspirational articles which will help you plan a fabulous year of travel with your family.

Happy reading!  Let me know in the comments below where you would like to travel with your kids in 2018 after reading these family travel blogs –
