Becoming a mum pretty well forces you to become more practical and organised as well. I’ll admit to having always had a small sensible streak but from packing a changing bag to packing a suitcase, I usually have at least one back-up plan just in case. But…

Every time I visit the New Forest, I wonder why I don’t holiday there more often. It’s only about 90 minutes from my home, it’s beautiful and you get animals wandering the streets. I grew up and lived my life in cities, so I don’t think I will ever get…

I do love travelling with my daughter. I also love having the occasional break on our trips, especially if it’s just the two of us. And that means checking out the kids’ club. We’ve had great experiences (at least twice I’ve struggled to persuade her to…

It’s the Caribbean which has the reputation for rum, not the Canary Islands. But sugar cane has been cultivated on Gran Canaria for over five centuries, long before Columbus took a farewell gift of seedlings to Hispaniola in 1493 after a stop en route to…

Boat trips with a toddler always seem a bit risky to me – if she gets bored/hungry/upset, you can find yourself trapped. And small boats without a toilet are even riskier… But I do love cruising along in the sunshine, the sun glinting off the waves. So…

What a difference a year makes. When I was first invited to Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World last May, Minnie had barely heard of Peppa and George and wouldn’t have known what a family theme park was if I’d sat down and drawn her pictures. Slowly but…

Minnie has never been much of a napper. When she was tiny, I remember snatching 20 minutes with joy while friends could set their watches by their babies dozing for two, three hours. Then when we switched to a single lunchtime nap, I could suddenly rely…

I’d heard about AirBNB years before I first tried it, on our trip to Copenhagen almost two years ago. And while I think it’s fantastic for families, having rebooked via the site for Paris and now an Amsterdam trip on the cards, I am slightly regretting…

Looking back on everything we packed into our week in Gran Canaria, I can’t quite believe how much we explored in seven days – but all good things come to an end alas. We still managed to go out on a high note with a visit to Palmitos Park zoo and…

It feels like life has been a complete whirl for the past few weeks – planning four trips away almost simultaneously, with a week in Gran Canaria and a long weekend in the New Forest behind us, plus Cornwall coming up very shortly. Add in a To Do list…

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!).
