Travel Babbo – Adventurous Family Travel
I launched Travel Babbo in 2014 with the purpose of inspiring others to travel with their children to crazy, unique places. As part of that I provide recommendations and guidance on destinations, hotels, tours, activities and guides, based on first-hand experience. If our kids haven’t loved something, I won’t recommend it to others.
I do not accept guest posts, I don’t write about places we haven’t been, and I minimize affiliate links and advertising. Recent comments about my website:
- “I just wanted to write to say there are so many travel websites/blogs in general, and also with kids, but your website is just the best. Your photography is simply stunning, and I appreciate your concise posts and genuine opinions. Thank you for the inspiration. We are hoping to travel deeper in China this coming March, thanks in part to your post on smaller towns in China. Cheers!”
