About Luxefamily5

Since becoming parents these past 8 years have been a whirlwind of ups and downs, highs and lows and a lot of adventure. Children don't have to stop you seeing the world. In fact for us its just the opposite...

For as long as i can remember I've had the travel bug but it wasn't until recently i got to call my obsession a 'job'. After returning as a family from our world trip in 2018 i took it upon myself to go back to college and train as both a travel journalist and agent. I'm now lucky enough to be a regular contributor to many family travel magazines and online publications as well as a travel agent and mentor for over 1000 home based travel agents in the U.K.

As a family of six I think we've proven that life does not have to stop with kids. There's something magical about seeing the world through a child's eyes as you'll see we document on this website.


Our hope is that while on our website you gain some knowledge and confidence to step out of your comfort zones and travel. Even if that means only one of you our job is done.
