NICE TO MEET YOU
We are the Well Travelled Munchkins, a family of five based in the UK who have a real passion for travel.
My name is Jayne and I started this blog back in 2018 after our second child had been born. My husband (Mark) and I have always been passionate about travel and we didn’t want that to change after we had children as travel has played such an important role in our lives.
And even though the way we travel has changed for us since having kids, the premise behind it has not. We want to enjoy the world and collect experiences and, more often than not, the memories we make and the photos we take are all the souvenirs we need.
Mark and I met in New Zealand while he was on his summer break from work and I was on a round the world trip. We spent two crazy weeks on the Kiwi Experience bus together before we had to go our separate ways.
However, we somehow managed to turn a holiday romance into the rest of our lives and over the course of 13 years we have turned two travel loving globe trotters into five Well Travelled Munchkins!
We are both teachers by trade so we mostly travel in the school holidays. This gives us lots of opportunity to travel through the year, but it can come at a premium, which is an issue we are always navigating around.
However, we have found ways around expensive holidays and travel costs and we share these in our blogs and our Instagram posts so you can do what we do – travel with your kids.
WHAT'S TO COME
The past few years have taught us a lot about ourselves.
We have learnt what we value in life and what we don’t. We learnt as a family the things we need and the things we can make do without. And most importantly, we leant what makes us happy and what brings us joy.
So to make sure we get the most out of the time we have with our kids (and the time we have with each other) we are full steam ahead with stuffing as much travel as we can into each and every glorious day we spin around the sun.
We hope that you join us on our adventures and become part of a community that values family, togetherness and sharing some amazing experiences!
