About us

The Jessop Family

Hello!  We are the Jessop family!  Our family is made up of Dan, Charlotte, Emily (aged 4) and Alice (aged 2).  Home is Norwich, UK but right now we are on a family gap year and travelling the world.


As a family, we love being outdoors, exploring new places, swimming and trying new foods.  Adventure is the aim of the game.  Spending time together is key.  We are loving our new lives as family adventure travel bloggers.


Meet the family

Dan – family travel photographer, videographer and Daddy

Dan is the guy that is producing all those cool videos and photos.  From the recording to the editing, he does it all.  At night, he is most likely found working away at the vlogs, but during the day, he is a complete daredevil.  He enjoys, trying new foods, pushing himself and everyone else of their comfort zones, cycling and playing with the kids.


Charlotte – family travel writer, website manager and Mummy

Charlotte is the one that is writing all the posts and keeping the whole Our Adventurehood thing running smoothly.  She spends her time researching for posts and keeping up to date with all our lovely readers and followers across our social media channels.  She enjoys swimming, running and cycling, but will never say no to massage on the beach.


Emily – chief adventurer and decider of activities

Emily’s main role in Our Adventurehood is telling us all the plans for the day.  She lets us know what she wants to do and we all do our best to make it happen.  She is most likely to be found in water as her favourite activity is swimming.  She is also very good at making friends and practising her language skills.  She has inherited her daddy’s daredevil attitude.


Alice – creator of the unexpected and attractor of locals

Alice’s job is to keep us all on our toes and create new and unexpected experiences for us all.  She likes to walk for a bit, then be carried for a bit and then walk a bit more.  She also likes chucking herself into swimming pools.  Luckily, she is a good swimmer.  She is always willing to try the local cuisine.  Her best quality is getting lots of attention from locals, due to being squidgy with blonde hair and blue eyes.


About Our Adventurehood

our adventurehood family travel blog

This blog was inspired by our love of travel.  We were planning a family gap year and wanted to travel the world with our kids.  Charlotte has been writing blogs for years and wanted to document our journey along the way.  Dan, who has always been interested in photography and video saw a chance to turn his hobby into a profession.


Our Adventurehood is about sharing our honest experiences as we travel together as a family.  We want people to see the highs and the lows and know that it is possible to take small kids to amazing places.
