A family of 3 who loves to travel, see new places, do new things and enjoy the world around us…. these are our trips and travels

Just a last thing… this is an “award free blog.”  I am so flattered (and so very grateful) that anybody would think it worthy of recognition.  I love writing new posts and reading other posts, but have to balance blog time with family and work commitments.  Award nominations need a lot of extra time, so unfortunately I can’t commit to that.  I am rewarded already that someone reads my stuff – so thank you!

    • Thank you for coming by my blog. Enjoyed reading about Iceland and your trip and loved your photos. Iceland is an amazing place to visit, we loved it and would definitely like to go back.

  2. Pleased to have found your blog. I will enjoy following your well illustrated travels. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (plugged in and ready to play).

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog “Le Chic En Rose” and liking my latest post on Yorkshire. I’m very new to the blogging world and it is great to have support and to know someone has enjoyed reading one of my articles! I love reading other people’s posts too there is such an array of interesting articles out there. I love your travel bog and your take on things and will stop by again soon and hope you will “visit” my blog again soon too kind regards Rosemary 🙂

    • Thank you Rosemary for coming by here too! We’ve been watching the Tour de France (on TV unfortunately) so it was lovely to read your post! Good luck with blog, looking forward to reading more.

      • Thanks Joy and for “following” me too. Likewise look forward to reading more of your posts and am also signed up to “follow” you. It looks to have been an incredible atmosphere in Yorkshire hopefully the Tour will go there again in future! 🙂

  4. Thanks for liking my post on the “Base Side Street” in Tokyo. Your blog is lovely — I’m now following — and makes me nostalgic for the three years we lived in England and traveled throughout the UK!

  5. Thank you so much for visiting our blog and liking the posts 🙂 I just started blogging about our travels recently and am really enjoying writing, but even more so reading other people’s travel blogs. Really like your pictures and style of writing, especially on Croatia and Italy, two of my favourite Europe destinations…and of course Yorkshire as that’s where I live 🙂

  6. We’ve been so many similar places! Thanks for visiting my blog and liking a few Ireland photos. I have some Iceland posts from this past summer but can’t remember if I have anything on there about the Cinque Terre, which we loved.

  7. Hello, thank you for liking my post on Geneva. You have a wonderful blog and I enjoyed reading it. I see that we have one thing in common and that’s traveling with family. I too, enjoy doing this with my family, I find it as an ideal time for family bonding.. Keep traveling and keep sharing your stories.

  8. Thank you so much for reading my blog and liking it, as you can see it’s a baby but I hope to build and let it flourish with many more posts and pictures! Just having a look at your posts, looks excellent. Can’t wait to read more!

  9. Thanks for visiting my blog. As one who grew up in NE England I have spotted with pleasure your Northumbrian posts – will need to go back and look at more closely.

    PS I agree with your views on blog awards.

    • Thanks for dropping by here too Anabel! Loved your post on St Ives – somewhere I’ve been to many years ago and really want to revisit. We loved Northumberland – again until this year a place we have spent very little time exploring, we intend to change that too – it is such a stunning county. Glad you agree with the awards!!

  10. Hi Joy! Thanks for stopping by & liking my posts about Hong Kong! I love your blog & what you have to share. You’ve been to many places on my bucket list. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Ni hao joylovestravel, I am so chuffed you found my blog and liked it. I write about my life in China and what I find interesting here. I loved your post about the poppies at the Tower which I had the good fortune to see just at the start …it is amazing how they filled the moat by the end, and how they captured the public imagination. Zai jian for now.

    • Thank you for visiting my blog too!! Loved your post on the salmon fishing – incredible and so interesting. The poppies were a special thing to see – whether at the beginning or the end!

  12. Thank you so much for liking my recent post, it actually gave me more encouragement as a newbie to blogging…and I also enjoyed reading your posts, it’s really interesting and well-written.

  13. Thanks for dropping by! It’s nice for a “newbie” to receive encouragement from someone with more experience! I loved exploring your posts about Rovinj and Pula – I explored the Istrian coast in 2013 and Croatia holds a special spot in my heart.

  14. I agree about the awards… a lovely thought but just having the opportunity to post my photos and a few words is award enough for me! Enjoy reading about your travels.

  15. I’ve found a kindred spirit not afraid to go out on adventures with tiny feet in tow! Look forward to reading what the world has in store for your future adventures 🙂

  16. Hi! Thanks for liking our recent post about Cape Town. Keep your eyes open, because there’s much more to come!

    You have a great blog with lovely pictures. You seem to have travelled quite a lot, when will we see Africa on your list..? 🙂

    – Julia & Lina

  17. Hi! Thank you for dropping by to like one of my posts. More importantly, this led me to your blog and I’m looking forward to reading more about your family’s adventures.

  18. Thanks for looking at my post. It’s funny how things happen: we’re heading off to Paris tomorrow, so it was good to read your posts about your trip there. I should end up with pics similar to yours, because we are planning on seeing most of those same places… No plan, no rush, and we’re not “trendy” people so we don’t worry about what’s cool, we do what we want… Keep travellin’!

    • Thanks for coming by here too!! Very envious of your trip to Paris, we love it there and I’m sure you’ll have a fantastic time. No plan and no rush sounds like a great idea to me!! Enjoy….
