I love getting ideas and inspo for family adventures. It makes me feel happy to know that you can still be adventurous after having children. It might take a bit of planning, some sideways thinking and a dose of reality, but it can be done! Here’s some top family adventure ideas that I’ve found.
Mum of two Sarah Logan shows how a heroic amount of determination, regular running and a much needed confidence boost from a very special charity helped her stay positive during her cancer treatment.
Mother of two Fiona Orrell from Lancashire is almost halfway through a year-long adventure walking one section of the Coast-to-Coast trail every month with her husband. After a tough year, walking has been like therapy for her.
Part of why I set up The Smaller Explorer was to connect with like-minded families. There’s nothing like chatting with others who have managed to do something amazing after having children. It’s so inspiring, and also gives me loads of ideas of what I could do in the future too, and how to do it.
This series hopes to inspire other families who want to get back out there after parenthood, but don’t quite know where to start, or if it’s possible. There was only one lady I could start with – Catherine Edsell. Catherine is an adventurer, expedition leader, PADI divemaster, Reef Check trainer, yoga teacher, FRGS, TED talker, podcaster and mother of two daughters. Phew.
