The Adventure Book

A true family favorite is The Adventure Book. A Dutch company that sells travel products that will spark your wanderlust and keep those travel memories alive. They sell beautiful travel journals with pages for you to fill up with all your family’s travel adventures. All 196 independent countries in the world and the 50 states in the USA have a spot in The Adventure Book for you to fill!

We own the original journal, but there’s also an ultimate traveler’s edition and a Europe edition. We love scrapbooking in it and also bought sticker sets and a wooden stamp set.

This is the ultimate travel gift for every member of your family. Happy journaling!

LARQ self-cleaning water bottle

Our family thinks it’s very important to travel as sustainably as we can. Flying is pretty bad, so we try to use products that are the better choice for the environment.

For a long time we’ve been searching for the best water bottle to bring on the road with us. In most of the world you can’t drink directly from the tap. And while we don’t want to buy bottled water, to reduce waste, we sometimes had to. There wasn’t a bottle we thought was safe enough to let our kids drink from.

We loved our Lifestraw, but it didn’t filter out viruses. That’s why in some parts of the world we had to buy bottled water again. But in 2021 we discovered the Larq and that was a game changer for us.

The Larq is a self-cleaning (yes, that’s a big plus while on the road!) water bottle that uses UV technology to eradicate bacteria and viruses. Push the button on top of the bottle and in 60 seconds the water is clean. Are you somewhere where the water is very filthy? Push the button twice for an even better result.

Cold water stays cold for 24 hours and hot water stays that way for 12 hours. It’s a must bring item for us on the road. We used it to drink tap water in Mexico, Egypt and many other places. We highly recommend it!

Enjoy The Wood World Map

We absolutely love everything about traveling and own globes, atlasses, scratch world maps and wooden world maps. Our youngest even has wall paper of a world map.

One of the most beautiful pieces we own is a 3D wooden world map (size XL) from Enjoy The Wood.

The quality is amazing. You can buy different kind of push pins to add to your map and showcase where your family has been.

We absolutely love this beautiful piece of art in our living room and it also helps your kids with geography.

Book a trip

Here are links that will lead you to our favorite booking sites. We love to use Expedia for international flights and 12Go when we want to fly domestically in many parts of the world. Booking.com is our go to source for accommodation. Discover Cars is our go to source for rental cars. And we use Get Your Guide and Viator to book excursions and activities.

When traveling with kids you can’t leave on a trip without travel insurance. We use Heymondo. Would you like to reduce the cost of your trip or trips a little?
