Are you a family traveller with a tale to tell? Bradt seeks true stories about travelling with children to include in a new book!


Calling on parents/grandparents/guardians! Have you a really memorable tale to tell of a trip you’ve taken with children? Perhaps you’ve gone outside your comfort zone by visiting somewhere incredibly off-beat and adventurous as a family. Perhaps your child has saved the day or helped you to engage with a destination in a surprising way. Perhaps a trip has made you view your child in a new light – or, indeed, encouraged them to view you differently. Did the wheels come off the family wagon in spectacular fashion? How did you all deal with the challenge?

Bradt Travel Guides is on the hunt for entertaining, out-of-the-ordinary true stories of family travel for inclusion in a new book – provisionally titled Travelling with Kids – due for publication in autumn 2019. The book will be the latest in Bradt’s series of travel anthologies (To Oldly Go, Roam Alone and Beastly Journeys). If you have a story that’s inspiring, amusing, quirky, thrilling or even downright frightening (albeit with a happy ending) this is your chance to see it immortalised in print.
