Meet the O'Hallorans

We’re made up of Lyndsey, John and Erin, who all love a new adventure. We try to get away as much as possible, especially during school holidays and variety is a must for us. That means staying anywhere from a luxury hotel to a hostel and it’s not often we go to the same place twice. 
We do a real mix of travelling, sometimes as a family and sometimes separately. Sharing both the good and the bad, you’ll find itineraries, reviews and ideas for days out both in the UK and further afield. 


From having the freedom of going anywhere I wanted at 18, I caught the travel bug early on. At 19 I went to Toronto on my own for a whole month and then moved there the year after on a working holiday visa. I love the sense of adventure on holiday, whether that’s in the UK or abroad and I can’t wait to discover somewhere new. I’m often found planning our next trip away or dreaming about a new destination.

Bucket list destinations: Cornwall, Edinburgh, Washington DC, Virginia and a train journey in Canada.


Better known as the pack horse of the family, John tends to go along with any crazy plans I come up with. John would maybe say we have too many holidays but I don’t think that’s possible. We’ve been a non-driving family for a very long time, making the most of public transport, but John has recently learned to drive. We’re looking forward to having a bit more freedom when it comes to where we can go and when.

Bucket list destinations: Barcelona, Egypt, Norway and Athens.


Erin (b.2016) is now in infant school and absolutely loves learning new things. She is a keen reader and has the beginnings of a small library in her bedroom. Erin is also an active child, taking part in any after-school activity she can, attending Rainbows and having swimming lessons each week. Just like her Mum, Erin loves to travel and always asks when the next trip away is.

Bucket list destinations: Wales, South Africa, Egypt, Rome and Copenhagen.
