Welcome to Smudged Postcard!

Hi, I’m Annabel and I’m using this site to share my knowledge on family travel from over 10 years working in the travel industry. I also have plenty of practical experience, travelling with my other half and our two sons, aged 6 and 4.

I’m particularly interested in slower paced holidays and travel which has a positive impact on the destination visited (even if the mode of travelling there doesn’t…) On Smudged Postcard you’ll find family travel tips and ideas for family holidays along with reviews of our travels and days out. I have spent quite a bit of time in Italy so it features quite frequently on here as does our home county of Hertfordshire, just outside London.

I hope that some of the information here might prove useful to other families looking for holiday inspiration. I’d love to hear back from other parents if they have ideas or suggestions for fellow families.
