IT'S ALL ABOUT...
Finding time for freedom… exploring, learning, creating more family adventures!
Good to meet you, I’m Chloe. Join our mission to become more adventurous! This blog is about simple family adventures, family travel and making the most of today. We want to get out there and challenge our limitations, value the experiences and connections we find along the way. I hope you will find here a growing hub of encouragement and useful information to help motivate and inspire you to go and create more of your own micro or indeed great big adventures, travel stories and treasured family memories.
The blog has been inspired by the feeling that time is passing, small ones are growing up and that special window of opportunity to inspire and educate is gradually shrinking. Like most of us I hope to give my kids a foundation of self reliance and confidence, that they will remember our adventures and grow up feeling they can do anything they set their minds to. And that when life gets stressful, external adventure and internal quiet are the best cures.
I love travel and adventure stories, so I hope to share a few of our experiences along the way as we ordinary mortals attempt to become adventurers. And I encourage you to join in and share some of your family adventures with us.
On the subject of adventure…
Let me clarify a little… each of us probably has a slightly different definition, depending on our comfort zones. The Oxford dictionary definition is “An unusual and exciting or daring experience” which sums it up for me. I’m not thinking of summiting Everest, or even trekking to base camp (yet – although that is on my bucket list!) Despite secretly dreaming of being Levison Wood’s superhero sidekick, in all honesty I’m more comfy in slippers than on a high mountain pass.
I believe adventure can be anything that gets you out of the daily routine, gets you feeling excited about life, challenges you and brings you together… toasting marshmallows around your campfire, checking out a local festival or at the other end of the scale a grand travel adventure around the world! If it scares you a little it’s a good thing, it means you’re pushing your boundaries. Adventure can take many forms and unique experiences can be found everywhere. Its all in the attitude!
My fabulous imperfect family includes easy-going Mr P, Jay (mad about mountain boarding, gaming and drumming) and Peanut (adores animals, art and currently gymnastics). Aside from being mum, my hats include web designer, sometimes world traveller (with a vision of becoming more so… more on that soon!) and lover of all things enriching; meditation, creation, travel, adventure and self transformation to name a few. We are based in the UK.
If all of this floats your boat, why not join us for regular updates by subscribing below. I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with anyone who likes the vibe and wants to come along for the ride!
