About Zena’s Suitcase Travel Blog

Hello and welcome to the about Zena’s Suitcase UK travel blog page.  Firstly, thank you so much for stopping by, it’s a pleasure to have this opportunity to get to know me, my family and the travel blog a little better.  

Our UK family travel blog was born out of a desire to share extraordinary experiences with my tribe and inspire other families to do the same.  Zena’s Suitcase travel website is about my passion for travel with and without the family.  I also support parents with the challenges of raising children and encourage my readers to make the most of the time they have with their families, whether it’s at home or away.

About Me

I am 40ish years old Mum and travel blogger and I live with 2 of my gorgeous children and husband in Nottingham.  My eldest is now 20 years old and is currently living away from home studying at Manchester University.

The girls, Indie (born 2012), and Brook (born 2014) are both very outgoing, adventurous and throughly enjoy taking part in our family travel reviews.

I was married in 2011 to the lovely Darren, who is an incredibly talented software development manager but fails miserably in the DIY stakes.  You can’t win them all I guess!  It means I’m left in charge of all the travel ideas and household decisions, but I can sit back and relax when it comes to the travel blog.
