Welcome to our first ever roundup of Single Parent Travel blog posts! Autumn Edition!
This Summer has breezed by for us. The six weeks holidays didn’t seem to last half as long as I expected but, like every holiday, I’d neglected how expensive it gets, so this was a bit of a challenge for us.
With little money to go away, we focused on UK breaks and days out. The Summer began with a week’s stay in a cottage in Cornwall where we discovered the ruins of Tintagel Castle. We spent much of the six weeks trying different activities in our favourite city, Hull, then the unexpected finale to our break was our day trip to Leeds Festival.
When I could pry Noah away from playing PlayStation and Roblox, he practiced until he accomplished the monkey bars. With a bit of a struggle, he also conquered his fear of heights zooming down the zip line at Go Ape Sherwood Pines.
SINGLE PARENT TRAVEL
In this roundup post, we want to celebrate other single parent families who travel so we’re sharing some of our favourite posts from the Summer.
We thought this post from MyLittleOneAndMe really summed up all the positives about traveling with children! It also offers some fantastic tips for before and during your trip. Daisy looks like she has had such a great time exploring South East Asia.
The Single Swan revisited Paris, sharing the sights and sounds once explored by mum as a student.
We’ve been enjoying following the adventures of Single Mum Travels for a while now! Tina, who travels with two children (including baby), has useful advice on how to prepare for the worst case scenario when traveling with children. She’s also revamping her blog! 😃
I’m back on Twitter, full time blogging and travelling now, don’t forget to check our the redesigned blog, still having my developer tweak some issues, if you notice anything shout me out – Tina Louise

COMING UP IN THE AUTUMN
In a couple of days, Noah returns to school and later this month so do I! I’ve enrolled to do a Master degree in Social Research so that one day I might be able to contribute to helping the travel industry to adapt to the needs of single parents.
September will see us do our first ever 2k as we run in the Run for All Sheffield Mini Run. This is to raise money for the YHA (Youth Hostel Association), who not only provide amazing budget accommodation but as a charity provide much needed holidays to young people and families who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity. You can read about how they do this right here.
In October, we are visiting Amsterdam for the first time, when we take part in a P & O Ferries minicruise. We are especially looking forward to visiting the Anne Frank House, eating pancakes and visiting the NEMO Science museum.
We’re excited to see what adventures our fellow single parent blogger families get up to over the coming months. We’d like to make the Winter edition of our Single Parent Travel Roundup bigger and better so if you’d like to be included, let us know about your blog posts! Also, let us know what you’d like to see from our roundup post!
