Forget the brown cafes and red light district, lovely Amsterdam is actually a great place to visit with kids. And now I’m (fairly) certain Minnie won’t try to fall into a canal, it’s high on my list for 2015. There are also some cheap – and quick – flight…

By this time of year, I am more than ready for winter to be over and looking forward to all of January’s endless bills being paid off – hopefully! So not too many things in this month’s round-up, but there are a few which I’ve bought, tried and added to…

I’ve been having so much fun going through old photo albums digging out photos of sunny beaches, exotic destinations and fantastic trips for #ThursdayTravelTreat on Instagram. But there’s no reason to fly half-way round the world to have a travel treat…

Most of my childhood holidays started with a ferry. So whether it’s our long weekend jaunt to the Isle of Wight or the traditional cross-channel journey, boarding a ferry instantly makes me feel excited to escape. And while I’ve found myself on more…

Once upon a time, you’d never have known where your favourite movie or TV series was shot. But over the last decade or so, travelling to film locations and taking special tie-in tours have become more and more popular. Of course plenty are on a sound…

It’s been a castle-filled year so far. After getting to dress up as a princess in Warwick, the discovery that Carisbrooke Castle is home to several donkeys sealed the deal for Minnie. Castles are great. So with the best weather of the long weekend…

Minnie isn’t short of animals that she loves, but when monkeys and owls feature strongly in the top five (along with bears, cats and parrots), a visit to the Owl and Monkey Haven was a given during our trip to the Isle of Wight. Although a few of the…

There seems to be a bit of a theme to the posts on the blog at the moment – travel without planes. Normal service (and all those Isle of Wight posts I promised) will resume soon. But in the meantime, a great new site has just launched which proves you…

There’s something about taking a ferry which makes me feel like a holiday has truly begun. The legacy of years traversing the Channel for family holidays perhaps. And it’s left me with an unshakeable feeling that boat journeys will always transport me…

Kung Hei Fat Choi! It’s Chinese New Year today – the Year of the Sheep (or goat, depending which version you want) has started so where else for #ThursdayTravelTreat on Instagram than China? I did an amazing trip in 2007 with one of my best friends, just…

For a relatively small island, the trickiest part about a family holiday to the Isle of Wight is how to fit everything in – as I discovered when it came to planning a long weekend break with a toddler. From beaches when the sun is shining to some great…

Travel-obsessed mum-of-one behind the MummyTravels.com blog
Introduction
Cathy Winston is a freelance journalist who's travelled to more than 50 countries (so far) and is never knowingly underpacked. Mum to her first daughter, she refused to put away her passport just because she'd become a parent and blogs about her experiences of travelling with a baby at MummyTravels.com, as well as being published in a string of national newspapers and magazines.

I can't recommend Linda highly enough - a friend told me about her after a fantastic photoshoot with her baby, and I decided to book a family session with her as well. We got so many absolutely gorgeous photos of my daughter that I had real trouble choosing my favourites afterwards, as well as some lovely shots of the three of us, and some great photos of me too (no mean feat as I hate most photos of myself!).
