About trips with a tot

Hi 🙂

I started this blog in December 2016 with the hopes of it being a good project for the new year.

I am 25 years old and I live in Sheffield, with my partner ollie. We have been together 8 years, and have always had a passion for travelling, sight seeing and days out. 

After having our son Eric in October 2015, we found it difficult to find time, money and confidence to go abroad so we made an effort to explore more of the local area and our region. With a baby in tow this also meant we started visiting family attractions more than we used to, always had to make sure we planned ahead, and looked for good facilities. I can’t tell you the amount of time we spend researching and reviewing places… but what I could find local was sparse.  We have had to learn how to get about without a car and on a small income. Neither of us drive so we are always on public transport, only one of us is currently working, and add a baby into the equation means things can be tricky. 

I’ve always loved travelling but my interest in going places with my son expanded even more after I created an online parents group on Facebook where I started to organise and arrange “meet ups” for example picnics, soft play dates, farm trips and more. It became obvious to me that I have a bit of knowledge when it comes to recommendations for places to go that are family friendly in the area which I should tell more people about. Hopefully I will try and review places we go to help others choose a good day out.

So after a year of seeing, doing, exploring, walking and learning for a year, I have decided to share our experiences and have a place where I can write about our days and keep these memories safe to look back on. We have lots of fun and are always told by friend and family that it’s amazing how much we get out and about so I thought it was the perfect time to start writing about it!

There is a full list of places we will be going, and hope to go in 2017 here. Hopefully this year on this blog i will get the chance to tell you all about these places.

We are a gentle parenting, baby wearing, breastfeeding family and although I won’t be discussing thing in my blog, this will become apparent. 🙂
