I hope you don't mind me posting. I am currently working on an observational documentary series for Channel 4 and am trying to get in touch with families planning adventures.
If you or someone you know is planning a family trip with a difference I'd love to hear from you.

Family adventure: I just spent Christmas and New Years backpacking with my boyfriend and 8 year old daughter in India. I dont know if that is the type of adventure you are looking for or not.
I am interested to hear from families who have done the travel thing to.
Myself,hubby and two kids are off on our adventure this March. Not long to go now.
We will be travelling mainly around France maybe Spain. We will be taking Flossie our caravan with us.
I am excited as well as nervous. Four of us together24/7? We will home ed the children or should I say caravan ed the children! We will stay on campsites (cheap as poss) and also hope to do some WWOOFing.
It would be interesting to hear from anyone who has done any of the above.
My blog is full of travel with family. We are just back from the South Island in NZ. I'm a little late on the entries, but it should be coming in the coming days.
I am currently planning to see the midnight sun
in 2010 with my boyfriend and 8 year old daughter. We will be going to someplace in Scandanavia, because my boyfriend has been wanting to go there for a while.
My situation is the complete opposite: most of my family has been apart for a while (I've been in Ukraine and my brother at university for 2 years, my Dad has been in South Africa for 2 weeks to see his family there), so this weekend we're having a sort of reunion at home so my Mum can remember what we all look like! It doesn't fit in with the Channel 4 series, but it's proof that travelling doesn't always take you away from home.
I take a family adventure every summer (family = me and my now 3 yo daughter). 2006 was 6 1/2 weeks in South America (mostly Argentina) including Easter Island, 2007 was 4 weeks in Cambodia, Vietnam (and a couple nights in Tokyo on the way back), and 2008 was 5 weeks India and Nepal. They were all inredible trips and can be seen in the blog.
This summer's trip going to Scandanavia and other countries for 4 weeks. Buying a volvo in their overseas deliver program and then road tripping/camping/couchsurfing/hostelling through Norway, Sweden, Finland, St. Pete Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany Denmark. Will be a little more rushed than I usually like to do it, but oh well. Really looking forward to it, and so is Sofia.
I am planning to go camping with my children this summer. It is going to be interesting, because we are going up into bear country. So far I have purchased a .45 revolver and want to get one of those old tear drop campers. At least the camper will slow down the bear long enough for me to get the gun loaded. (Yes a bear can go through a hard walled camper and I will have grand babies there.) We are looking to go up into the Big & Little Snowy Mountains, near Lewistown. I have gotten to be a wimp, as when I was a child I remember hearing the bears going through the garbages at night as I was in a tent trailer.
We ( me, my husband and 4 children) are about to embark on a 10 week adventure to Malaysia, Canada, Europe & the UK from Australia..
I am nervous and excited all at the same time.. the kids ages are 12, 5, 4 and 2...
I am sure it will be a testing time for all of us but also extremely rewarding...

I am now planning to take my daughter to SE Asia for 1.5 months next August. We are hoping to go to Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and maybe Singapore. My boyfriend might be joining us for a couple of weeks. I think this will be replacing the Midnight sun trip for now. SE Asia would certainly be the more child friendly option.
I am sure it will be a testing time for all of us .
You are probably right about that. I find travelling with my daughter trying. But, it makes a difference when my boyfriend is there to help.
...but also extremely rewarding...
That too! There is something thrilling about showing a little kid the world. 😊
What a trip for them. It is the memories of the time spent in that camper that are the most fun. 5 kids in a pickup camper going on long trips. Good memories.
