Hi, my name is Jude and I’m the creator of Mini Travel Tribe. From as long as I can remember I was encouraged by my parents to get out and travel the world. “Don’t settle down too young, go and see the world first”. I think my Mum may have lived to regret this when I dutifully did as I was told and took off for multiple long travelling trips throughout my 20s. The more of the world I saw, the more places that got added to my bucket list!
I did eventually “settle down” a bit and 3 children later my husband and I are Yorkshire based in the UK. The love of travel never does go away but we currently settle for regular family holidays. These tend to be a mixture of relaxed family beach holidays and holidays where we travel around and really explore the destination. We are now inspiring our children to want to explore the world. Just before her 7th birthday last year my eldest daughter announced that she would like to ‘go away somewhere exciting for my birthday like Australia or China”. Difficult to organise at short notice and with only a week off school, but we have promised her that we will try and make it there one day as a family.
So who are we?
- Mummy/Jude – Travel planner and photographer
- Daddy/Husband – co-planner (usually in charge of flight bookings/ transport arrangements) and co-photographer
- C – the eldest (age 8)
- M – the middle one (age 5)
- B – the toddler (age 3)
