I created the “Travellers’ Tales” section to give my readers and other travellers an opportunity to talk about their travels. Today I would like to introduce you to Jurga, a travel blogger based in Belgium. Like me, Jurga travels with her family. She also takes the most beautiful photos. She blogs at “ Full Suitcase ”.
I would love to hear about your travels too. Go to “Travellers’ Tales” , fill in the quick questionnaire and email it to me with your blog links.
I’m Jurga, a traveller with a camera. Together with my husband and our three boys we are discovering the world’s most amazing destinations, one trip at a time. We share our travel experiences on the Full Suitcase family travel blog.
I’ve been traveling ever since I can remember myself. We never travelled far when I was little, so most of my earliest memories are from our short trips exploring Lithuania, where I grew up.
Our last holiday was an amazing road trip in the USA. We visited numerous National Parks, including the Rocky Mountains, the Arches, and Yellowstone.
We love the outdoors and so we did a lot of hiking during our American road trip. One of our favourite hikes was the Delicate Arch Trail in the Arches National Park. Another favourite was The Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone. It has 150 geysers in one square mile and hundreds of hot springs. Incredible experience!
We made some incredible trips over the years and I would love to go back to so many amazing places! If I have to pick just one favourite, it would have to be our trip to Australia with kids . That trip had it all: famous landmarks, beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife and so many amazing memories for us as a family.
My absolute favourite travel destination is South Africa (Ed’s Note – Naturally J). We hardly ever travel to the same place more than once, but we will gladly make an exception for South Africa. Can’t wait to go back again!
I am sure that Sara’s blog is a great resource for all there is to see and do in South Africa. (Ed’s Note – Thanks Jurga J). One of our absolute favourite things to do is walk along the coast in Hermanus and watch dolphins and whales from ashore while having a picnic there.
I can’t imagine better travel companions than my husband and kids. (Ed’s Note – same here!)
Camera. I never leave on a trip without my camera gear. It weighs more than other people’s whole luggage, but I can’t imagine traveling without it.
Just one piece of advice? Travel. As much as you can, as far as you can and as often as you can.
No way I can name just one place. My list is endless and is getting longer every day. I’ll try anyway. Alaska. Antarctica. Argentina. And that’s just the A…
Hermanus, Cape Peninsula and the Garden Route.
When traveling with kids embarrassing moments are inevitable I suppose. The positive side is that people are more understanding and forgiving for (families with) kids.
Driving in India. The chaos on the roads is such that we were praying every time we got into the car and every evening we thanked God for surviving the day. And we are not even religious!
