Family travel is one of my favourite things to write about on this blog, and I adore making our family travel vlogs over on my youtube channel.

Another thing I love to do is browse Instagram for family travel inspiration and advice. Instagram is such a great resource for family travel, with so many family travel accounts at your fingertips to give you a realistic window into travelling as a family in a specific destination.

What’s Sri Lanka like for families? Instagram is the best way to find out. Is it do-able to take young children to New York? Watching a family travel instagrammers Stories in real time will give you the most realistic answer.

Below are a few of my favourite family travel bloggers to follow on Instagram:

Urquhart Castle is in a fairytale location, on the banks of Loch Ness. But the beautiful ruins hide a bloody past. On our Rebellion Tour with Loch Ness by Jacobite, we learned how the castle saw battles between Scots and English, Royalists and Jacobites. You’d never have guessed that from the peaceful, beautiful views, though. Our tour gave us a two-hour window to explore the towers, dungeons and grassy banks of the castle before we sailed back to Dochgarroch Lock. The time just flew by. #ad #presstrip . . . . . #urquhartcastle #lochness #MoreThanAMonster #scotland #visitscotland #lovescotland #scotlandisnow #YOYP2018 #travel #familytravel #guardiantravelsnaps #bbctravel #culturetrip #ukexplore #ukftb #ftb100 #wanderlust #travelmore #highlands #scottishhighlands #familytravelblogger #parentbloggersuk #snaphappybritmums #traveltheworld #culturedkids #travelwithkids #travelblogger #historicscotland

M E M O R I E S – I’m still clinging on to every last minute of the holidays – I’ve loved having all three of my babies at home – it’s been a little crazy at times and the adults are slightly frazzled (including the grandparents 😉) but I wouldn’t change a thing!} We enjoyed a fab #coastaladventure last weekend, an opportunity to enjoy the Cornish Coast before the chaos of the school run starts next week (ad). Anyone else holding on to the summer holidays with both hands? . .

Me and my girls 😍 Tomorrow they both start back at school – Tot in Year 1 and Baby in full time pre-school. And today I realised I’m going to miss them loads. This summer was the first time I’ve done the full-time mum thing since maternity leave. At times it’s driven me crazy but then I remember all the cuddles and brilliant fun we’ve had. Roll on half term and the odd weekend adventure before then 😀. 💖 💖 💖 💖 #Explorerkids #tinytravels #BackyoSchool #familytime #travellingfamily #wetravelmums #wetravelgirls #curiouslittleexplorers #totsphoto #kidsofinstagram #ukftb #ilovetravel #travelmomentswithkids #ftb100 #instatravel #trips100 #travel #summerholidays #ItalyGram #Salo #LakeGarda #familytraveltribe

Just looking back at this photo makes me smile and recall the pain of actually getting to this point. ⭐️ On the second day of trekking the Inca Trail I suffered hideously with altitude sickness. At one point, everyone said I needed to go back down but I gritted my teeth and took my time – and while that probably wasn’t the best idea, I made it and two days later got to watch the sun rise over this magnificent sight. ⭐️ The point I’m trying to make is even I need reminding that when you think you can’t do something, you really can. And I am amazed how #travel constantly pushes me and helps me grow. ⭐️ Do you have a Travel memory that pushed you to your limit? . . . . . #peru #machupicchu #inca #incatrail #passionpassport #trip #moments #unesco #sunrise #throwback #memories #travelholic #mountain #views #viewfromthetop #visitperu #travelblogger #traveler #traveltagged #travelinspiration

Do you get the post holiday blues? We’ve only been back in the UK a few days and I’m already longing for Greek island idylls like this gorgeous harbour at Heronissis on the island of Sifnos. We spent hours here – reading on the beach, taking photos and eating a seafood lunch overlooking the water. It all seems a long time ago now. I haven’t picked up a book since I finished Arundhati Roy’s brilliant new novel in the airport departure lounge. I’ve spent the last few days shopping for new school uniforms, pencil cases and school shoes and trying to get two weeks of holiday washing dry in between the rain showers. On the plus side, one of the boys has decided he needs to make a Death by Chocolate cake so provided he doesn’t cause too much destruction in the kitchen, the day should end well… @youareheresifnos @visitgreecegr @discover.greece @cyclades_islands @beautifulcyclades #ttot

Sometimes you just need to brave it, face your fears. The courage to leave your comfort zone is always a difficult one. 🤔 I’m not so comfortable swimming in the sea and especially not without a costume to hold my wobbly bits in and where people could walk by at any minute! 😂 But whilst in Mull I chose to go in the sea with just my knickers and vest top. It was out of my comfort zone but I was very proud of myself afterward! Plus we had no towel so I had a few minutes of drying naked in the wind and sun! 🤣 💪🏻🙌🏻 When did you last leave your comfort zone? #travelfamily #ukparentblogger #ukexplore #scotland #familytravel
