Welcome to our new feature, where each week one of our community will be checking in with me via video call to discuss their travelling experiences.

These snack-sized interviews aim to be inspiring and informative, whilst also providing an insight into the personality of each family as they share tales of their travelling highlights and wisdom.

This week we meet Ruth, who has recently returned from a 12 month, round the world backpacking adventure.

What’s it like settling back into the daily routine of normality, and what coping strategies have the family implemented to make the adjustment as smooth as possible?
