James & Ava Croatia 2015

I am JW Patrick and live in the Scottish Borders.

I travel thousands of miles with two young children each year and wrote the Family Travel Journal in an attempt to lure my children away from their screens and encourage them to engage not just with the wonderful world flying past but also with their mum and dad!

I have written dozens of documentaries seen by millions of people around the world and written several books:

The Invincibles. An Adventure novel for ages 10+

Why Have Adventures? With Sam Sykes. A non-fiction book for parents of teenagers. Download for free!

Our family’s recommended Weekend Break ideas can be found here.
