Summer is upon us and if you’re in the UK, the kids have just broken up from school or about to. Our son finishes at the end of July but we’ve already started doing one of our favourite summertime activities after school and at the weekend: a family trip to the beach. We generally pack up one of our Cabin Zero Bags and head directly from school or early on a Saturday morning. Our bag always contains a basic kit and, in this post, I’m going to share with you our summer beach survival kit for families with everything you need for an awesome visit to the beach with kids.
Taking your kids abroad for the first time can be a daunting prospect, but with this post myself and my fellow bloggers have just made it a whole lot easier.

One of the big reasons why many families put off embarking on long-haul flights with kids, aside from the costs and length of the plane journey, is those two horrible little words; jet lag.

What’s the one thing you absolutely HATE when it comes to travelling with kids? If you are anything like me, it’s packing. I hate packing for a family trip. I love travelling, but packing suitcases? No! Having said that, after visiting many countries and covering more than 70,000 nautical miles with our son (to date), I have learned a thing or two during the many times I’ve been getting us ready to jet off. So, to make your life easier, here are my top travel packing tips for families to help you pack like a pro when travelling with kids!
Hey, guess what? Our son at the ripe old age of 6 has done over 70,000 nautical miles by plane so far. How do I know? By totalling up the miles recorded in his flight logbook. And since we’ve accompanied him during those flights, either both parents together or mum on her own, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about flying with a baby and traveling with toddlers. With our experience comes a certain level of knowledge and to help you with your forthcoming flights, I’m going to share with you some awesome tips for flying with a baby or toddler.
