How It All Started

Minimise and Travel was born out of my own experiences of travelling with, or without my daughter. I first travelled abroad with Lyla when she was 18 months old to a friends house in Osnabruck, Germany. Gradually as time has gone on, I have got more and more adventurous with our travels. We have now visited twenty-six countries together, and she has just turned 18.

I am constantly searching for new and interesting places to visit, some for trips in the near future and others for later on. I always try to search out the most unusual places to stay, plus the best flight deals. I never take a full package deal. It is not that there is anything wrong with them, but I prefer to piece together my trips rather than buy a package.

One of my favourite parts is planning the trip. Once I have planned one trip, I am already thinking about the next one. I always allow for flexibility and a sense of adventure within the planning stage.  I’m meticulous in regards to health and safety without actually compromising the adventure itself. 

Some say I am brave, I’m not sure I agree. What I do know is that my nan always said that life really is too short, she died a few years ago at 102 years young. If that is the case and she reached that ripe old age, then I think we need to pack in as much as possible, that is what I am trying to do. Less stuff and more experiences is the only way forward. 

It is also a great way to meet new people, share experiences, and spread kindness. Don’t hold back join in the conversation. Minimize and Travel is the only destination where you’re never alone, wherever you may be.
