This is The Famous PoshPacker Family Travel Blog

We're a real family and we really travel with teenagers... yep really!

And it's true,

we've proven that travelling with teenagers can be done (and survived!)  :)

PoshPacker, what does that mean?  It means we are travellers and we are going to adventure our way around the world, the whole world.  We are travelling our style and it's a little teeny bit posh with a lot of delirious humor.

As for our family, we are lucky, happy, parents travelling with a tween (10-12 year olds) and a teenager (13-19 year olds).  Some say 'crazy', we say mmmm sometimes crazy but usually it's ridiculously good.  Our travels are awesome, you just have to know how to survive.  Follow this advice and you'll never go wrong
: 'Travelling with Teenager Tips!'

OK so we like it posh, we like to travel in style.  Life's short and we're going to have a blast!   We love a bit of luxury travel, we thrive on wild amazing adventures and we sometimes still carry a back pack.  We like things a little refined but not too exclusive that we can’t enjoy some crazy local customs and tacky but awesome experiences.  We definitely like a clean bathroom and OMGosh we despise the thought of bed bugs.

Why shouldn't you enjoy things a little bit posh, you know you want to?  You only live once. We are a crazy, excitable family that will inspire you to travel, take your teenagers and do both well!

We are inquisitive, interested and just a little bit crazy. So join us (our newsletter is on the right hand side, see it?) as we entertain with stories from our posh-ish family travels.  l promise we'll leave no stone un-turned.  So far it's been an epic journey and you won't want to miss the rest!
