Travel with kids: From London to Lucca

Nov 05 2020

London Mums’ globetrotter reporter Rita Kobrak has told me her lovely travel story, which I am delighted to share here. Enjoy! 

“Four years ago, my husband and I spent a half-term break in Lucca, a stunning, walled city close to Florence and Pisa. That holiday changed our lives, as shortly afterwards we left London and moved to Italy with our then 9-years old daughter, Alessia, and 3-year old son, Sebastian. My Mum was Italian so I have always spoken Italian at home and worked in Italy as a travel guide before having children. Lucca was still new to me, though. It was supposed to be a year-long stay but we are still here four years later. Looking back, packing up our belongings, putting them into storage and leaving with just two suitcases was a bit mad. But, if you are thinking of going abroad with the family for a while, I’d say: JUST DO IT! Life is too short to live in only one country.

Autumn in Tuscany

Sep 04 2020

London Mums’ globetrotter reporter Rita Kobrak has sent us this inspirational travel blog. Enjoy! 

Tuscany in Autumn is a kaleidoscope of colours, emotions and flavours. If you haven’t managed to go abroad this year, Autumn is the perfect time to visit Tuscany, as the weather is still good and most towns have food festivals at this time of the year with tastings and stalls where you can taste and buy good quality local products to bring home. This is the time of cold-pressed olive oils, wines, chestnuts, mushrooms, honey  and truffles.
