Mozart in her flamenco outfit
Family travel doesn’t necessarily mean piling into the station wagon with armloads of Mad Libs, granola bars, and pillows anymore. IT has scoured the Web to nab some of the best family travel blogs floating around in cyberspace.
Reader Lisa Dee wrote in to share her favorite travel blog, Soul Travelers 3, which “is a great portrayal of a traveling family.” This family of three from Santa Cruz is currently traveling the world with stops including Brussels, Provence and Egypt (soon!). As this risk-loving couple travels the world with their six-year-old daughter nicknamed “Mozart,” they document their journeys with colorful photographs and vivid descriptions.
Follow grandparents Jane and Ken as they spend a year in the beautiful country of Italy with their “much loved grandson,” Casey. Jane, a devoted blogger and grandmother, records each detail in their blog Casey, Italy and Other Good Stuff. The posts can get a bit verbose, but Jane finds off-the-beaten-path treasures—like Etruscan archaeological areas—that are free from tourist crowds. Our favorite part of the site, though, is Casey’s blog, in which he records life in Italy from his own, eight-year-old perspective.
The Family Travel Journal began when John and Louise, a couple from Virginia, adopted their daughters from Chongqing, China in 2002 and 2004. Currently the posts are China-centric, but the family plans to continue their globetrotting ways, and will visit Antwerp soon.
