Our family has now been traveling the world for over a year now, and with two kids in tow I am always looking for kid friendly accommodations. Not just family friendly but kid friendly. I know to most you wouldn’t understand the difference here, but there is a big difference between allowing kids and families and providing amenities to make kids feel more welcome. I want my kids to have a  great time when we head to new destinations, I want it to be memorable for them and if this can start with the hotel we stay at then it’s even better.

When most travelers start planning their trip to England they might gravitate to London. While London has plenty to offer, it would be a shame to start and end your England trip there. With so much to see and do just a couple hours right outside of London, you have to make time in your itinerary for places like Oxford.

While Oxford is most famously known for its prestigious University, it holds so much more for those that choose to visit this majestic area each year. While thousands of college students flock here every year so do tourists and it’s not hard to see why. Here is our families’ guide to get the most out of your trip to Oxfordshire!

As moms, we are always making sure our kids are happy and healthy. “Eat your vegetables” “Don’t eat too much candy”, but as a mom that travels, it can be even more difficult.

It is important to me that our family stay healthy while traveling, even almost more than when we are at home. If one kid gets sick while traveling, it can throw all our plans into chaos. I knew I had to ensure that we stay healthy.

“Travel with kids”, sometimes the very words can make a parent panic. It can be hard enough to fly with one or two people, but throw a kid into the mix, and things get complicated. Well… that’s my life. We travel constantly with our two kids in tow. While I feel they are well-behaved kids and I love traveling with them, they inevitably complicate some parts of travel. I am always making sure they are fed, happy, and comfortable. This isn’t always easy, and I am always on the lookout for tools that can help me do the job.

We love going on family adventures, we call them this instead of vacations because they are usually packed with adventure and new discoveries. Iceland is one of these destinations that is packed with new adventures and opportunities for family travelers. While other families might be taking their kids to theme parks that provide temporary fun, but let’s be honest a ton of stress in the long run. We choose to take our kids to adventurous countries to get back in tune with nature and the outdoors. So when planning your next family “vacation” choose an adventure instead!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
