Hi! I am Sylvie
Welcome to Travels with Eden
Here you will find any information you’re looking for on family travel.
I’ve always loved to travel and travel writing. The travel buzz started when I went skiing when I was 8 and I started to write ‘holiday books’ – a diary with pictures and maps of our holiday experiences. During my teenage years, I was lucky enough to go on a variety of package holidays to Zakynthos and plenty of city-breaks around Europe. My favourites were Amsterdam, Iceland and Copenhagen.
Travelling has always felt so natural to me. As soon I was 18 and I’d left college, I jetted off on a gap year where I visited Greece (Athens), Sri Lanka, Thailand and Singapore. I also explored my home country – the UK as much as I could while saving up for longer trips.
In December 2018, I made an announcement that shocked those around me. I was pregnant with a little girl – Eden – my first child. Although the pregnancy was a surprise, I’ve embraced the situation. Having a baby at 20 is the best thing I’ve ever done. Eden is now 1 and together as a 3 generational family with my mum, we’ve explored our home county of Cornwall (more about that on my other blog Kids2Cornwall), been on a trip around the North of the UK- Harrogate, Leeds and Edinburgh and embarked on a month-long backpacking trip to Greece. In Greece, we started in Athens before island hopping around the Cyclades islands and visiting Crete.
I absolutely loved planning my trips both as a solo backpacker and with my daughter. I was always guilty of booking every single place to stay, transport tickets and flights before the trip started! While studying for a BA degree in Geography and bringing up my baby daughter, I decided to start a blog to document our trips and help others plan the perfect trip too. Travels With Eden has since grown into a near full-time job for me.
Travels with Eden provides a wealth of in-depth destination guides to help you plan the perfect trip away with kids. I’ll help you find the best things to do and the best places to stay and eat. I also write itineraries and attraction reviews for each place we visit. The blog is a great resource for family travel tips. in-depth destination guides, inspiration and advice for travelling with kids in tow.
