Welcome to our large family travel blog.

I don’t mean large blog, I mean large family. We have four children which apparently is more than average! Our family travel experiences are different from many other families travelling the world. Whether it be sourcing affordable accommodation, safe food to cater for our many allergies and food preferences; or taking things slowly because of the various sensory and behavioural issues common within a family who identifies with the autism spectrum; you can find our related posts here! Collated on one page for ease – use the search function for more specific post results.
