Top 25 Travel Blogs for Families, 2012
The ideal of family travel - fun and relaxation for all - and the reality - toddler meltdowns and hotel mishaps - don't always coincide. But never fear: Babble's Top 25 Travel Blogs for Families is back, and each of these sites is packed with information on what you can do to make your family's vacation truly enjoyable. We brought back favorites from last year's list and combed through your nominations to bring fresh voices to the conversation. So whether you need to know what to pack while flying to grandma's with a toddler, how to travel the world with your family on a budget, or where to arrange a private cooking lesson in Provence with a Michelin-starred chef, we've got you covered. It's time to stop worrying, start planning, and, most importantly, get moving! (And if we missed a blog you love, nominate it here!) - Paula Sadok

Who: Lisa Wielgosz, Aussie mom of two, based in Dubai
Why we love this site: Though she’s not kayaking and mountaineering, Wielgosz’s travels with her two young children to destinations such as Thailand, Malaysia, Egypt, and Morocco are an adventure all their own. This blog is packed with guides on everything from shopping in Dubai with kids to the best things to see and do with your tots in Malta. It also offers recommendations on guidebooks for families (she likes LUXE City Guides) and shares practical tips for traveling with an infant with food allergies. In other words, it’s a terrific resource for exotic family travel with very young children.
