Family Travels

This blog is a family endeavour about our travels. Hope you like it and if you do why not make your own?

I’m Jon, I’m in my mid-forties and counting and I’m an English language teacher, a job that allows the family to travel. I’m from the Birmingham in the UK and I’ve been married to Lorena from Quito Ecuador since 2000 (and also counting) Our two boys are Tommy and Danny born in 2006 and 2008. The boys could euphemistically be described as ‘lively’, but on occasion we have been known to use other adjectives to describe them.

We decided to do this blog because the boys are forgetting where they have been for one and this is a good reminder. Also because we travel a lot and I suppose I would like to encourage other people with young families to do the same. And I don’t mean give up the day job and sail round the world type travelling, I mean whatever is an option. For example a week in Latvia probably comes in for less than a week staying in your own country if you live in Western Europe.

I’ll try to give a few of the pitfalls of family travel on the way, but hopefully the blog will be more for us, so there will be mostly be good ideas about where to go and will include comments in Spanish from Lorena and comments and bits of homework from Tommy and Danny.

If this works well I want to get the boys to contribute more, but to do that I need some traffic I think. If you make a comment directly to them that would be great, maybe along this lines of “I’d like to hear more”, I’ll pass them on and see if it works

    !Aupa amigitos! Me alegro de ver que todo os va bien. Menuda experiencia con vuestros viajes. En cuanto a nosotros, llevamos 3 años ya de vuelta en Inglaterra y, por mi, ya es suficiente. Sin embargo no veo que nos vayamos a ningún otro lado hasta que los niños hayan terminado la escuela. Ya veremos. Un abrazo a todos y recuerdos a Tommy y Dani de parte de Leonie & Loy.
