Welcome to Travels With My Boys, where adventure meets family! I’m Sam, the creator and curator behind this vibrant family travel blog. I also own and run West Lothian Kids. As a passionate explorer and dedicated parent, I embarked on this journey to share the joy, challenges, and invaluable experiences of traveling with my beloved boys.

Growing up, I always had a zest for exploring new destinations and immersing myself in diverse cultures. When my own family expanded, I was determined to continue nurturing that wanderlust spirit, albeit with a twist – family-friendly adventures! Travels With My Boys was born out of a desire to inspire and guide fellow parents seeking memorable travel experiences with their children.

With a blend of personal anecdotes, practical tips, and comprehensive guides, Travels With My Boys offers a treasure trove of resources for families embarking on their own adventures. From navigating airports with toddlers to discovering hidden gems in exotic locales, I aim to equip readers with the tools and inspiration they need to create unforgettable memories with their loved ones.

Through our travels, my boys and I have learned the importance of curiosity, resilience, and embracing the unknown. Whether it’s camping under the stars, exploring bustling cities, or trekking through breathtaking landscapes, each journey enriches our bond and broadens our perspectives.

Join us on our escapades as we navigate the world one destination at a time, proving that traveling with kids is not only possible but immensely rewarding. Let Travels With My Boys be your compass as you embark on your own family adventures, creating cherished moments that will last a lifetime.

Meet Us

Mums and sons in Croatia

Explorer and Mummy

I’m Sam and I love to travel! Since my eldest was born in 2011, I have worked from my parent’s house, while I look after the boys. Working a full-time job is no mean feat and can be even more stressful trying to juggle two young boys at the same time.

My first big trip was when I was 18 and I went backpacking with my older brother (Simon) around the USA and Canada for 3 months. I love to travel and explore new places and hopefully, I will show my boys the rest of the world.

Big K

He was born in July 2011. What can I say, he is outgoing, full of energy and his laugh will set everyone off laughing. He doesn’t sit still (not even for a minute) and talks non-stop…and I mean non-stop.  He is in primary school which to him the most exciting thing is school dinners! Big K loves going on holiday and likes to try to learn new languages while away.

Little K

Little K was born in January 2015. He is a very happy and bubbly boy. He loves to laugh and smile and is very laid back compared to his older brother. Care has to be taken when taking Little K away anywhere, as currently, he has a wheat allergy (or possibly is gluten sensitivity), and milk intolerance. Little K is also very very cheeky and knows exactly what to do so that he can get his own way!

The Hairy Baby

My dog is also a big part of our lives. I have a collie (the nutcase!) She definitely make life more fun as we love getting outdoors. She normally spend her holidays in a home boarding with a local dog walker. However, if we have a holiday in the UK, then she normally comes along with us.
