LP Pathfinders: top family travel posts from August 2017

Kids Blog - August round-up
Exploring Sardinia © Nadine Maffre

This month we’re going off the beaten track with blogs on travelling as a family in Sardinia, Las Vegas and Bengaluru (formerly Bangalore). We’re also featuring a photo blog on visiting Cambodia with kids and getting inspired with a post on ten rules for family travel.

Sardinia often drops off the family travel radar but after reading Nadine’s post we’re definitely putting it on the bucket list. As well as the warm welcome locals extend to families, there’s plenty to occupy children of all ages and beautiful landscapes to keep the adults happy.

Expat Nadine loves to discover offbeat places you won’t find in your first Google search. Read more at lelongweekend.com.

Bangalore with kids - Jenny Lynn

Another place that we don’t often read about on family travel blogs is Bangalore. This post is completely focussed on child-friendly things to do in the city and could well convince you to spend more time in Bangalore than you might have previously planned!

Jason and Jenny love to travel and believe that having young children shouldn’t change that. Follow their adventures at travelynnfamily.com.

A warts-and-all post which will give you plenty of fun ideas for things to do with your kids in Las Vegas while also giving you food for thought on whether you do really want to take them in the first place. We loved the honesty and the ideas.

Hilary blogs on travel and fashion at hilarystyle.me. Her two boys travel everywhere she does.

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words and Cathy’s photo blog certainly does an excellent job of showing us why families will love exploring Cambodia. We’re so inspired we’re off to read more about their trip!

Cathy blogs her experiences of travelling with her young daughter both around the UK and the world at mummytravels.com.

Eric’s family travel far and wide every year so these are pro-tips ranging from the basics such as checking the passports and not taking more than you can carry to the more philoophical ‘say yes’ and ‘travel for yourself’.

Eric wants to inspire other families to take their kids to crazy places too. Follow his adventures at travelbabbo.com.
