A multi-award winning team

In 2019, 2018 and 2016 we won the British Guild of Travel Writers award as BGTW Travel Blogger of the Year, commended for excellence in blogging. To quote the 2016 judges, the blog is:

“a glorious celebration of adventurous life and the ups and downs of family travel. The quality of writing was superb – from fast paced and hard hitting to reflective and lyrical. There was also great use of a YouTube video to tell the family story in an equally engaging way.”

We are regularly recognised for the quality of our work through testimonials and awards. In 2019 we have been independently shortlisted for the Teletext Holidays British Travel Awards in two categories – as Best Family Travel Blog and Best Adventure Travel Blog.  In 2018 we were shortlisted in the World Travel Market International Travel and Tourism Awards as Best Digital Influencer. We have also been listed as one the top 100 Travel Blogs in the world as ranked by search authority. In both August 2018 and August 2017 we were independently recognised by Vuelio as a Top 10 UK Family Travel blog. In June 2017 we were finalists in the Brilliance in Blogging Awards for Social Media. In June 2015 our YouTube channel won the Video category of the Brilliance in Blogging awards. We were also shortlisted in the Outstanding category. In 2014 we were listed by Cision as a Top 10 UK Family Travel Influencer and featured by the BBC.
