Hiya, I’m Char! It’s so lovely of you to drop by ❤ You can find out about me below, but please feel free to get in touch if you have a question or want to know more.
What is Taylor Hearts Travel?
It’s a travel blog, well, largely a family travel blog nowadays!
Taylor Hearts Travel is all about stylish travel, whether that’s on a lovely family holiday or a parent escape.
It’s about redefining family travel. Think stylish, exciting, affordable luxury travel with a baby or little ones. Yes, it does exist!
And parent escapes are important too because you still need to be YOU, not just mama or dada, so you’ll also see trips sans kinds on here.
One thing’s for sure, wherever the adventure and whoever the explorer, it will always be a stylish, exciting getaway.
Taylor Hearts Travel has won recognition from various outlets (Thomson Holidays, Huff Post Lifestyle, Yahoo Style, Company Magazine….) and partnered with many brands (Virgin Holidays, KLM, Visit Orlando, Cyprus Tourism Board, Nuna…). To find out more please see the Partnership Opportunities page.
Who is Taylor Hearts Travel?
I’m Char Taylor, the blogger behind Taylor Hearts Travel. I’m an impatient explorer, mama and dreamer. I’ve always loved stylish travel; design hotels, Pinterest-style apartments and swoon-worthy resorts, so when I started my family I didn’t see any reason why that should change.
When I was pregnant, and to be honest even before then, people took great delight in telling me that that I’d never want to travel with a baby. They laughed in my face when I said that I’d still be Char, as well as being a mama, and therefore travel would still always be a big part of my life. They told me I was naive and that as soon as Nova arrived I’d realise they were right.
Well, to those lovely people – this family travel blog is proof that a life of travel doesn’t have to stop just because you have children. When I was pregnant with Nova I travelled to America, France and Spain, and I maximised my maternity leave by travelling lots. By the time Nova was one he had been on countless flights, including trips to Greece, Canada, The Netherlands, Jersey and lots more. I guess it’s fair to say that you can live whatever kind of life you love, whether you have children or not. You make the path. ️
Equally people were shocked when I said that I’d sometimes travel without my little ones, but I’m more than just a mama. My husband and I need time as a couple, just like I need time with my friends. Travel makes me happy and I want to be the happiest I can be so that I’m on top form for my most precious cargo, Nova and Kit. That said, my favourite trips are with my lovely little family. <3
I have two mini-explorers; my son, Nova, who is three years old and my little girl, Kit, who has just turned one. They both started travelling when they were only a few weeks old and have clocked up quite a collection of destinations, both short and long-haul. You won’t see photos of their faces on here, but you can read more about why I don’t share photos of my children in this post.
I’ve been blogging for just over four years, collecting quite a few achievements along the way (recommended as a top travel blog by Huff Post Lifestyle, Yahoo Style, Thomson Holidays and lots more). I’ve been travelling a lot longer though.
In 2007 I backpacked my way round the world and since then I haven’t stopped, squeezing in some amazing adventures alongside a full-time job. From Peru to Australia, Belize to Bali and all the in-between.
My backpacking days are in the past and classy boutiques, design hotels and really stylish stays now get me excited. I’m a huge lover of affordable luxury, though I have no issues with the occasional indulgence! As a family we love the countryside and the mountains. Jasper National Park in Canada absolutely stole our hearts.
As well as being a family travel blogger, I also run a family travel podcast and have my own little shop stocking my Mini-Explorer Milestone Cards and other postcards.
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. I love to hear from you. Thanks for checking in and letting me share my love of travel with you. ♥
