A Family Travel Blog to Excite and Inspire you...

Welcome to Smileletstravel.com

Set up by husband and wife team, Tony and Barbara who have spent many years in the travel industry.   From working with airlines and travel companies to airports and hotels, their experience is vast.  Tony and Barbara live in Cheshire and have 2 sons who are now at University. Undoubtedly their passion for travel has rubbed off on their sons. Their eldest son has just returned from a year studying in USA whilst their youngest is now studying in London.  Both boys love to travel and at times also contribute to the blog – giving a different prospective.   We hope that you enjoy this unique ‘Family’ blog.

Tony and Barbara regularly visit hotels, apartments and villas across the UK, Europe and worldwide.  The pair review airlines, both short and long haul plus provide valuable tips on everything from finding that preferred seat on an aircraft to tailor-made holidays.

Undoubtedly the combination of the 4 members of this family who have different views and opinions all help to create a unique blog and one that we are sure you will find interesting and informative. From 5 star hotels to backpacking around Mongolia – there really is something for everybody.

We hope that you enjoy reading this blog and that it gives you some great ideas on where to holiday and travel from the UK and Europe to the USA, the Caribbean, Thailand and Australasia. Smile Let’s Travel
