world family travel

Your guide to planning the ultimate family adventure

About us

We are a family of four from just outside Sheffield in the UK who hit ‘pause’ on our normal lives to travel the world on a family gap year! Join us on our adventures as we share travel tips, updates and those all important costs along the way.


We breakdown the cost of world family travel in our budgeting posts, chat through the realities of world schooling and share our insights in to all the practical planning information you might need.
