Thank you for visiting More Life in Your Days!

We hope to inspire you to live life to the full by sharing some great travel tips and inspiration for travelling the world with your children.

We provide in-depth travel advice with a focus on travelling with babies, toddlers and young children. Our aim is to help you to enjoy the world together from the first few precious months.

The name of the website comes from an old saying that has stayed with me since I first heard it over 20 years ago.

 

“You can’t add more days to your life, but you can add more life to your days”

 

And that is what we seek to do.

Get Planning!

Some people love planning holidays. Some people hate it.

Either way, you are bound to be reading lots of information to help you make the most of your time away. We like to think that the information we provide is the best available on the destinations that we write about.

Our destination guides are always for places that we have been to and enjoyed visiting and are backed up with hours of research to make sure that we cover all angles and provide the most up to date information to help you find the best places to go on your trips abroad.

We aim to help you to find the best attractions and the best places to stay and we use our travel experience to help you to pack the right things for your trip

 

Your First Trip with Young Kids?

We’ve been there. You are worried that they won’t enjoy it, that they’ll get sick or that they will scream the whole way on the plane.

Maybe everyone you know is telling you that you are crazy to even think about travelling with your little one?

We have some posts that can help.

If you are planning your first trips abroad with young children, check out our guides to flying with a baby and flying with a toddler.

Or have a look at our more specific guides to Thailand with a Baby and Toddler, Italy with a Toddler or Baby and Vietnam with Kids (these posts contain plenty of helpful tips wherever you are heading.)

Not Sure What to Pack?

Where to Go

 

We have travelled all over the globe for the past 20 years. Since our eldest was born 5 years ago we have kept this up and have probably travelled more than ever.

We have been to lots of countries together, but this blog currently focuses content on the countries that we have been to several times over the last few years, Italy and Thailand.

We cover a mixture of family travel advice and general travel tips that will help you to make the most of your time away. We are slowly adding content on Vietnam and the UK.

Thailand

We have explored most regions of a country that never fails to impress with its stunning scenery and charming historic buildings.
