Planning Travels


From Eastbourne to everywhere

Welcome to one family four backpacks, our first foray into the world of blogging and a means of documenting our family's journey into making our dreams of home educating our boys around the world a reality. We wanted to share our journey with you, from the planning stage right through to the exciting adventures we hope to have.  We hope to share useful tips along the way, and as well as providing highlights we want to be honest about the challenges too! This whole journey is a big step into trust and the unknown, but we are confident that it is the right thing for us to do as a family.  We would love our story to inspire others, and we are aiming to create a network of virtual support with like minded people so if you like what you see then please do comment, like and share!

Around the World...Starting in Bognor

All round the world trips start with a practice run holiday to Bognor Regis right?!? 😂😂😂 We can’t quite believe we have become THAT family. If I’m honest we have always kind of felt above the whole Bultins thing, after all we consider ourselves REAL backpackers! 😏 But we quickly realised that becoming a parent changes your priorities and the way in which you view the world. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And when you have a toddler who is obsessed with Mr Tumble and all things Justin Fletcher you want to do everything you can to make his dreams come true.

So when Cub No.1 turned 2 in 2017 we took the plunge and booked a Butlin’s Just for Tots weekend at Minehead with Justin Fletcher headlining (yes I did just say headlining 🙈). And do you know what, we bloody loved it, well he loved it, and we loved that he loved it, seeing his little face light up over the whole weekend is a treasured memory and he still talks about it even now! That coupled with the fact that we didn’t have to watch the pennies (we’d done the pre-paid dining) was a winning combination.

And so with that, we go once again, in the pursuit of Justin Fletcher (Cub No.1 is as loyal as they come). And while it’s not quite the dry run we might really want as parents, the fact is we know that it will be all kinds of magic for the boys and that makes Bognor quite the adventure.
