Who are the adventurers?

I am ‘MrsP’ and am the words and some of the pictures behind the blog. Away from the blog I am an editor and writer. Six of my children’s non-fiction books were published by the British Library. When I’m not planning our next adventure I spend most of my time creating guidebooks for the National Trust – lucky me!

I am mum to two very lively boys (the 7yo and the 9yo) who are seemingly inexhaustible! Most days with my boys are an adventure of sorts. We love making the most of our local area at the weekends and exploring at home and abroad in the holidays. Our boys love to be active so we choose to build in time for them to let loose seeking out vast meadows for them to run in, or great playgrounds on a city break.

The boys are passionate about animals and leap at every chance to see animals in the wild or learn about them in zoos and sanctuaries. One of our 2019 highlights was seeing bottlenose dolphins on a sea safari off the coast of Wales.

Together with Mr P (the husband and taker of many of the photos and videos) we are planning a six-month long Grand Adventure that will take our family from Canada to Chile, starting in July 2020.

Grand Adventure Story is where we share stories of our holidays at home and abroad. From a guide to Interrailing with the family to the best ways to spend a weekend in Fowey, Cornwall we have you covered. Our 2020 Grand Adventure will be taking us from the wilds of North America to the wilds of Patagonia via the steamy jungles of Costa Rica and Ecuador. Follow our story here or over on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

Do join us on our Grand Adventure!
