Married to Andy for 7 years, we have two children - a daughter who is 5 years old, and a son who is almost 3 years. Neither Andy nor I travelled extensively before we got married, but my parents are wonderful and encourage us to leave the children with them every now and then so we can go off and see the world!
I'm not yet ready to get back into a bikini (darn baby weight!), so we're mainly ticking off the big cities over the next few years in order to avoid the beach!
My favourite destination so far is Rome, and this is simply because my son was conceived there (maybe that's a little too much information?!)
Rather than stay in a characterless hotel room, we much prefer to rent out 'real' homes - it gives us the opportunity to live like a true local, and we've met some really wonderful and generous people along the way.
We stumbled across AirBnB recently, and wish we'd found it sooner!
We are looking forward to our next trip when we are heading back to New York with some good friends to share with them all the great experiences and brilliant people the city has to offer!
