I’m Ting and I’m a Chief Sub Editor and writer by profession, and a travel blogger all the rest of the time.
I started My Travel Monkey in 2014 because I wanted to document all my fantastic adventures with my son, Monkey.
I was bitten by the travel bug as a child after my parents gave me the opportunity to experience once-in-a-lifetime events such as climbing inside the Great Pyramid of Giza and walking along The Great Wall of China. My passion for travel was finally cemented in my early twenties, after I booked an around-the-world ticket, packed my backpack and flew to India. I didn’t come home for 18 months…
Since then, I’ve had many amazing trips with my husband, but when my first son came along, we were determined this shouldn’t change the way in which we travelled. We’ve taken him on tuk tuk rides in Thailand, to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, and to sample pintxos in San Sebastián to name but a few…
But some of our most memorable adventures have been right here, at home in the UK. As a family we love the great outdoors and exploring local attractions.
We now have a new addition to the family, Peanut, so I am also discovering again what it is like to travel with a young baby.
My Travel Monkey is all about inspiring families to travel both at home and abroad, offering tips, reviews and guides to make travelling as a family that little bit easier, as well as showcasing exciting destinations and attractions.
