Welcome to Travel Less Ordinary itineraries, my very own passion projects whereby I set out how you could travel differently. Explore my site and perhaps it will spur you on to create your own less ordinary Itineraries.
Spain's third largest city deserves a place on the list for all those travellers who enjoy a good mix of beach and culture. This destination is excellent for families with lots to entertain the children beyond the superb beach.
4-7 day road trip
See Florence, Siena and Pisa as well as some of the most beautiful countryside there is. With ice cream parlours galore, parks and leaning buildings there is plenty to amuse the little ones.
MIDNIGHT SUN IN ICELAND
Stunning scenery, swimming in the thermal pools, whale watching and ice caves. Visit during the midnight sun or the northern lights to add even more to your trip. Lots to entertain both adults and children at really reasonable flight prices.
A BIT MORE INVOLVED
INTER-RAILING EASTERN EUROPE
Interrailing for a family of four may be surprising for some but this was one of our best holidays. We travelled through Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and Slovenia using trains and a river boat ride down the Danube.
ISRAEL & JORDAN WHISTLESTOP TOUR
Base yourself in the wonderfully surprising beach city of Tel Aviv and explore the extraordinary sights of Jerusalem and float on the Dead Sea in half day tours. Add a full day tour to Petra, one of the 7 new wonders of the world.
GOING FURTHER AFIELD
SOUTH EAST ASIA TOUR
This itinerary follows our honeymoon journey covering Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. It was a whistle stop tour as we were limited in the holiday we could take so I would recommend you take longer if you can or do the parts that you prefer most. I've outlined two routes, one family friendly route and the full tour.
SOUTH AMERICA HIGHLIGHTS
A trip across the continent taking in 2 wonders of the world, Machu Picchu and Christ the Redeemer. Covering Argentina, Peru and Brazil with a day trip to Uruguay it's not for the faint hearted. With beaches, train trips, ferries across the Rio Grande and ruins to clamber over there is lots for children to experience.
HONG KONG & AUSTRALIA TOUR
Journey to Australia with a 4 day layover in Hong Kong. Experience Sydney with it's beaches, parks and Blue Mountains, then Melbourne with it's Museums, Aquarium, Coastal Roads and the iconic Puffing Billy Railway. Then top it off with Hong Kong's Skyline light show and Disneyland.
IN AND AROUND CAPE TOWN
Climbing over the top of Table Mountain, stunning beaches, surfing, picturesque harbour and sand boarding, all with amazing food and the best accommodation I have ever stayed in, Derwent House Boutique Hotel. And as it's in the same time zone as the UK with night flights a long haul destination that is kid friendly.
