Family Travel Inspiration, Reviews & Stories

Hello and welcome to Footsteps Family Travel Blog!

We’re a family of six – Bev, Andy and our four children Emma, Luke, Alicia and Ryan. We’ve always loved adventurous holidays and travel, something that can sometimes be a challenge (not to mention expensive) with a large, growing family ranging from baby up to fully-grown teenagers.

We’ve always tried our best to get around and see as much of the world as possible with the children as they’ve grown up and always felt that travelling with a family like ours is made easier when you can have the advice and experiences of others who’ve done the same. So we set up this blog to document our travels and provide help, advice, reviews and information to other families doing the same. Read more about us…

P&O Arvia Caribbean Cruise Review: What to Expect on a Caribbean Cruise on P&O Arvia - We booked a two-week Caribbean cruise with P&O on its newest ship Arvia, having been amazed the previous year by its almost identical sister ship Iona in the Norwegian Fjords. What we hoped for was to get away from the dreadful British winter weather and to see a part of the world we’d not visited… Read More

Snowdon Watkin Path Waterfalls – The Most Beautiful Spot in Snowdonia? - This has to be one of the most beautiful spots in the whole of Snowdonia and, maybe therefore, in the whole of the UK? There are numerous tracks up to the top of Snowdon, the Watkin Path being one which we find to be the most picturesque. Although we've walked to the top of Snowdon… Read More
