A warm welcome to the Adventure Travel Family blog. We are a travel loving, homeschooling UK-based family and we recently took a family gap year in Asia. We blog about UK homeschooling (and fun educational activities suitable for all families!), family travel and gentle parenting.

I (Hannah, the blog author and Mum of Adventure Travel Family) previously worked in a PRU (Pupil Referral Unit) with children with emotional and behavioural difficulties, hence my passion for gentle parenting and education. I homeschool all of our children and none of them have been to nursery or school, we have always home educated and we love it!

Please enjoy our posts and check out what we’re up to now over on Instagram or our YouTube channel! Thank you for reading!

We also climbed two mountains, got attacked by dogs (eek), lived without running water for 3 weeks, took the world’s most scenic train journey, saw some of the best sunsets in the world, ate a lot of delicious food and soaked in the sunshine.
