A Holiday Diary

Throughout 2008/9 the BBC Cornwall website is following a St Austell family as they go travelling. Gavin and Hanna Holcroft and their daughter Tehya are visiting various countries over the next 12 months. Read their regular diaries and see pictures.

Gavin and Hanna Holcroft are no strangers to travelling. Together they have been all over the world, and now they're planning their next trip.

This 12 month trip is different though. It will be the first time the couple have gone travelling with their three year old daughter, Tehya.

While they're away the family will be keeping a diary of their exploits here on the BBC Cornwall website, and sending in their pictures.

The Holcrofts will be visiting Thailand initially, and will then plan the rest of their year long trip as they go.


The Holcrofts are visiting Bali

The couple are hoping the travelling will be a useful experience for Tehya. She has already been learning about far flung places, and is looking forward to swimming in the warmer waters.

The Holcrofts hope Tehya will learn more about the different cultures, as well as making new friends, and picking up foreign words.

Keep visiting this page for updates from Gavin, Hanna and Tehya, as they venture to Thailand and other countries around the world.
