I know what it's like to go from being a crazy backpacker without a care in the world, via being a vaguely sensible parent to being an adventurer once more. In other words, evolving into a Grown-up Traveller.

I also own and run The Grown-up Travel Company as a travel designer creating personalised African itineraries for experienced adventurers
