About A Little Bit Social
Hi, I am Gemma and welcome to A Little Bit Social, a family lifestyle and travel blog with the disability traveller in mind. Our son Thomas has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and learning difficulties, making our lives a little more complicated than just booking a flight, jumping in a car, or booking a quick trip. We have to consider his disabilities and needs. If you are interested in knowing more or would like to work with me please continue reading.
I am a 30 something Mum to Alana, who is 14 and your typical teenager where everything is a chore, and Thomas, who is 10 and is anything but your typical tween and likes to keep us all on our toes. I am married to Nick, a self-employed graphic designer and self-confessed car addict, and we’ve been together for over 20 years now (geez).
What you can expect from A Little Bit Social
A Little Bit Social is where I share our family’s travels, and adventures and hopefully inspire others. It is currently #10 on the Top 20 UK Family Travel Blogs And Websites To Follow in 2021 on Feedspot and #148 in the Trips100 top UK travel blogs. In addition, A Little Bit Social was nominated for two blog awards in 2020 for the best new influencer and travel and accessibility category and a finalist in the BAPS awards 2021 in the travel and accessibility category! Voting is still open!
Sometimes life gets messy, days out end up being tantrum after tantrum, we leave the wrong bag at home or with not enough changes of clothes or with the wrong shoes. So I want to take you along our journey to share the good and the bad. Like when we booked an accessible caravan to find that it didn’t meet our needs or the worse thing happens and one of us is ill. We want to inspire you or keep you entertained, hopefully.
