Kate Calvert first started travelling aged two, when she was taken to spend the summer in Italy. She has kept it up ever since, and after an early round the world trip, started writing about her travels for both trade and consumer publications. Having children has not stopped her, and her two offspring have visited all the world’s continents and are keen to keep going. However, they are as happy trying to surf the North Sea or exploring the Roman Wall as walking the Pyrenean foothills, or testing dim sum in Hong Kong. Drawing on the experience of those family outings, Kate founded the UK-based family travel web site family-travel.co.uk.
