DO lots, HAVE less… and get the kids outdoors more

We’ve SOLD our house, QUIT our jobs and TAKEN our kids out of school in order for us to increase the amount of quality family time we have.

OK, it’s a bit of a drastic move (and I don’t recommend you go and rush into it) but we did it because… well… life is too short not to, isn’t it?

Our home for a year - or more?

Our home for a year – or more?

So, we are currently heading around the UK living in a caravan and ‘schooling’ our daughters, Amy (11) and Ella (9) as part of our latest family adventure – or Ed-Venture as we call it.

Our first book!

Book coverWe are so excited about the publication of our first book (5th March, 2015).

As you can guess from the title, it contains 100 family-friendly adventures, and we hope it encourages and enables families to get outside and enjoy the outdoors together (like we have over the last few years).

If you would like to get hold of a copy, click here.

We’d love to hear any feedback people might have on the book, so do drop us an email if you have a mo.
