Apulian Family Dreams

Apulian Beach Front with The Little Voyager

Most of my childhood memories come from our long summer holidays which we spent with my family in Italy. I vividly remember the smell of basil and pine trees, eating tons of gelato with my dad and being surrounded by very friendly Italians who made us feel at home.

When we travelled at the end of last year to Puglia, a region of Italy I had heard so much about, I immediately fell in love with the fairytale-like round stone houses with conical roofs – the so-called “trulli” – and the beautiful nature that characterises the area.


A French Fairy Tale

A French Chateau's Fountain with The Little Voyager

When I told my kids last year we would stay in a real French castle, they were so excited they immediately packed their suitcases with little princess crowns and swords to fight off the imaginary dragons that might attack us on our journey.

We didn’t get to meet a real prince and the dragon decided not to make an appearance either, but we had a wonderful stay in a truly unique property: a chateau on a wine growing estate with hotel rooms in the castle and family-friendly self-catering properties dotted around the estate.


WAS FÜR MICH, my favourite German Family Blog

Claudi's Family Blog with The Little Voyager

I am very happy because the wonderful Claudia Schaumann who is a school teacher, journalist, author, mum of 4 beautiful kids and also writer of the heartwarming family blog “WAS FÜR MICH” travelled to one of The Little Voyager’s family friendly properties end of January 2019.

The popular blog is about her daily family life, travel inspiration, recipes, children book recommendations (she writes her own children books!) and much more.


Improvising when travelling with small children

Improvising when Travelling with Kids with The Little Voyager

Recently I learned again the hard way how important it is to improvise and be patient when travelling with small kids.

We visited Andorra for few days during a Spanish bank holiday and just like everybody else we planned on leaving on the Sunday so we would be back to work and to kindergarten by Monday.

Treat yourself to a Muments Morning at Kids & Kafé next Saturday in Barcelona

Muments Food Display and The Little Voyager

Few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet one of the founders of Muments, who explained her business to me and to some other mumpreneurs. I instantly fell in love with what they offer to local mums and how the project got started.

So what exactly is Muments?

Sara and Cindy, two Mexican mums, met thanks to their husbands 5 years ago in a bar, which was the beginning of a close friendship.


SocialFam, a great community for international families in Barcelona

SocialFam, a great Community for International families in Barcelona with The Little Voyager

All of you that have children know that there is a lot of truth behind the saying “it takes a village” and it can be very tough to find that village especially when you live abroad and don’t have your family support system in place.

This is why SocialFam has been created with the idea to create a community for international families in Barcelona focusing on family wellbeing, bringing people together and supporting each other’s businesses.


El Petit Festivalet 2018, an innovative fair offering kids products and creative workshops for families

The Entrance to El Petit Festivalet with The Little Voyager

Last year in November we visited with our kids the first edition of “El Petit Festivalet” (which translates as “The little festival”). I really enjoyed discovering new children brands and my son joined two workshops that were really fun for kids.

This year the innovative festival will take place on November 3rd and 4th at Disseny Hub Barcelona.
