About Us

Hi, welcome to Are We There Yet Kids. 

Family travel blog, Are We There Yet Kids was born after days trawling the internet whilst planning a trip to Thailand with my daughter, and trying to find a great country pub in the UK (with a playground) to meet a long distance friend in an area neither of us knew. 

Both took many sites, many hours, and I was left unsure about what I would find when we got there! We are Karen (me), Nigel and Piper (the 9 year old inspiration for this blog) and we love exploring the world, both abroad and close to our Staffordshire home. 

We’re not full time travellers, homeschoolers or have a budget of millions but we are here to show you that travel in and around the school holidays is possible, you’ve just got to find the best places to go.

Karen

I’m an ex retail buyer which is where my passion for travel began, visiting amazing places around the world but being stuck in board meetings and factories just wasn’t enough to satisfy my wanderlust. I’m a chronic overpacker, overplanner and have never met a country I coundn’t find something to like about.
I am an official #mystokestory ambassador, working with Stoke on Trent’s tourist board to increase awareness of this wonderful UK city. We’ve also worked with the Prague Tourist Board and the Bologna tourist board highlighting some amazing venues in these cities.
I really hope this family travel blog helps answer some questions about your upcoming family holidays or inspires you to try somewhere new the next time you travel with kids. If you’d like to get your brand, hotel, venue or destination in front of an engaged audience of family travel fans then feel free to drop me an email at karenquinn@arewethereyetkids.com

Nigel

Nigel is the only one of the family with a full time office job so unfortunately we often have to leave him behind. This does mean that we’ve had some pretty awesome Mummy/daughter adventures. This family travel blog aims to show you the best places to visit around the world making sure you get the most out of you precious time and hard earned cash.

Piper

Piper is the tween of the family, a whirlwind of opinion, fun and still a fan of a long haul flight. She has danced and sang her way through 32 countries and her dream destination is Alaska.

We don’t know where we'll be in a week or in a month. 
We do what we want for as long as we want, always trying out new experiences.
