A-Z countries

What's this blog all about?

Hi, I'm Nicola - welcome to a blog about family travel around the world, without leaving the UK.
I love travel adventures, but to save cash and keep my family's carbon footprint lower, I dreamt up a unique stay-at-home travel experience. So far I've visited 110 countries... without leaving the UK. Join me exploring the next 86! Or have a look at the "countries" you can discover within the UK by scrolling the labels (below right). Here's to happy travel from our doorsteps. See www.nicolabaird.com for info about the seven books I've written, a link to my other blog on thrifty, creative childcare (homemadekids.wordpress.com) or to contact me.

What's good about youth hostels

Nicola, Pete, Lola and Nell want to travel the world with a difference. We hope to get a taste of many countries without adding to climate change (with needless emissions from aeroplanes) or having to waste hours of holiday time in airport terminals. We hope our adventures inspire you to take a Grand Tour of your neighbourhood. This post is from Lola (seen here beating Lola at Connect Four)

I like youth hostels because sometimes you get nice breakfasts. And normally you can go out for dinner, and sometimes you can see dogs at pubs, which is a real plus. I like this one because it has got a big space for running around, and there are some books to read (well two!) and youth hostels always have bunks. And mummy sometimes lets me have the top bunk, which I like.
Next door to this youth hostel (Wooler) there are banams with two chicks which are really sweet.
