Exploring the big wide world and all it has to offer with my two boys and husband.
Godbers Travel is a blog by Kim a mummy sharing my life with the big wide world. I’m the mother of two boys, trying to capture our experiences as a living, breathing record of our journey through life. Life is hard when you’re a working parent, so experiences are even more precious. We dedicate our family time to making the best possible memories with our children. Expect tips, honest reviews, life hacks, and travel sprinkled with real life as we experience it.
Rich and I met in 2010 on the White Isle of Ibiza. We welcomed our first son, Bilbo, into the world in 2013. Travel with him was different. But we felt having a small child didn’t need to inhibit us from continuing to explore. Rich and I wed in 2013 and enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Thailand. Harrison was born in 2016 and took his first vacation at 6 weeks old. He has managed to tick off Belgium, Germany, Greece, and Spain before he was one year old.
We want to inspire people like us to take a trip out of our comfort zone. Travelling with children truly is the gift that keeps on giving, and we hope our stories will help others see the world as a giant playground to explore.
Over the last few months, our blog has evolved into more than a travel blog. I’m an advocate for refugees, and I’ve been sharing my recent volunteering experience in Lesvos. You can read more here: Volunteering.
The UK is where we currently call home, and 2018 was our busiest year yet, starting in Thailand, then Germany, Ibiza, Italy, Nice and Cornwall.
In October 2018 it was with the heaviest of hearts, we shared the news our amazing gorgeous Bilbo, had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). You can read our story here How my child was diagnosed with leukaemia.
We continued to share our cancer journey over the three-and-a-half years Bilbo was in treatment.

In 2021, we moved across the country and relocated to Brixham, Devon. Since Bilbo finished treatment we’ve been putting cancer behind us. We are back travelling and exploring our new home.
