Luxury Escapes for The Urban Mum

I began LUXURY ESCAPES for The Urban Mum as a Travel & Lifestyle blog; designed as a resource for Mum’s that like to travel in style (with or without kids in tow…)

Why Does Luxury Escapes for The Urban Mum Do What It Does?

After working for 20 years as a travel professional (Airlines, Hotels, Tourism Boards); I know who to speak to (to navigate the loopholes) and most importantly I am a Mum, so I understand the challenges that come with travelling as a family. I love nothing more than dispensing advice on the good things in life. Over the years, I have gathered a mean ‘little black book’ which I am happy to share to bring you Insiders Tips.

“I hope you can use Luxury Escapes for The Urban Mum as a resource to save you holiday planning time and avoid costly mistakes; my team and I try all the services and products, so we can report honestly on the experiences.”

I imagine we are similar…

Most of my leisure time revolves around family activities. When I finally get time to sit down, I dream of lying around a resort swimming pool with a great book. My guilty secret is Reality TV, a Gin & Tonic, and a glossy magazine- bliss.

What do we bring to the table?

Travel stories from around the globe, with a special focus on Australasia and the South Pacific.

Hotels and Resorts are my thing. When I was eleven I lived in a resort for three months and my fate was sealed. I have been seeking that lifestyle ever since.  Unfortunately, a hotel is not my permanent address; but a good night’s sleep in a bed someone else has made is my preferred location.

We feature reviews (travel & related products, luxury cars, travel fashion) & ‘frequent flyer’ interviews (Insider Travel Tips).

I also write a regular luxury travel column ‘The Good Life’; over at Out & About with Kids magazine – full of helpful suggestions for getting the most out of a stylish holiday.

If you have any travel questions, contact us and we will get back to you (you never know it might just be ‘the’ question that gets answered with a blog post – with full credit to you of course).

Bon Voyage.
