Blogger Spotlight: Karen Beddow, Mini Travellers
Mini Travellers is the blog from Karen Beddow covering family travel that’s realistic for others to emulate. Recently ranked in the top 10 UK Family Travel Blogs, Karen has spoken to us about beds of rock in Rwanda, the kids being happy and doing repeat jobs with PRs.
How would you describe your blog?
As a family travel blog that hopefully inspires others to travel with their kids.
Why did you start your blog?
I started my blog because I struggled to find accommodation for my then three under twos with a small kids club – I wanted some help!
What makes your blog stand out against other family travel blogs?
I asked my readers this the other day and they made some really great suggestions but the most consistent reply seemed to be that it wasn’t just an online diary of our travel, but it was travel that was realistic and also provided tips and advice for all families from budget to luxury.
What’s the best place you’ve been as a family?
For adventure I’d have to say our recent trip to Rwanda. I was so proud of the girls and they embraced every minute of it. Although last year’s trip to Sivota in Greece was also pretty exceptional.
What’s the worst place you’ve been as a family?
Possibly the first hotel in Rwanda with no running water. The beds were like rock and the bathroom wasn’t exactly what you’d call clean!
What makes the ideal family holiday?
The kids being happy!
Where haven’t you been that you’re desperate to get to?
That’s a tricky question, so many places. Much more of Africa, Thailand, Vietnam and South America!
How do you like to work with PRs?
I like to do repeat jobs with PRs as everyone then understand what everyone needs.
What is the one thing PRs should know about you?
I can turn things round quickly but I do love to be kept in the loop.
What are your favourite blogs to read?
I find this really difficult as I read a lot! But I get a lot of inspiration from blogs like Travel Babbo, The Travel Hack and The Londoner.
