All About Us
Travelling with Mother all began with a diary entry that I made when Mother and I set off on our BIG MOVE! Mother, as many of you know, is a little eccentric and along with that comes her impulsiveness and spontaneity.
Arriving home from work one day in 2012, to our beautiful Edwardian house, Mother announced why she was busy packing boxes; apparently we were on the move again. Not just along the road or even across the country. This time would be a much bigger adventure. “We’re moving to Spain, Darling. I’ve had quite enough of all this rain and grey nonsense“.
Despite my early panic attack at having to leave my friends, my new boyfriend (who I quite liked at the time) and my gorgeous ‘forever’ bedroom, I knew deep inside that this was another of Mother’s great adventures and that we would have a lot of fun and laughter along the way.
Here, we will frequently post the latest news of what we and our partners are up to. It will also include news of our latest social media posts and especially news of our latest CEGS challenge. Importantly, it will include news arriving from those we most admire! We hope you will check in here at least weekly – just click on ‘more’ where you will be directed to the full article.
CEGS is exciting; an invention that came about from something terribly negative but has developed into something truly positive and matters to everyone. Not only is it my initials – Charlotte-Elizabeth Gabriella – but it also stands for Cancer Evading Gourmet.*
When my auntie died of cancer, I was just 13 and had no interest in food and nutrition but for some reason I immediately related her cause of death to her lifestyle and in particular the food and drink she consumed. Since then, I have been very conscious about what we eat and drink at home. Mother hates cooking anyway, as so many of you know, so the kitchen was overturned to me.
Nowadays, we both have very strong beliefs that not just your health but your lifestyle too will depend so much on what you consume. Interactions with people and everyday challenges will change for a life far better. I want to share that with everyone; Mother and I live a stress-free life with good health and a great prediction of a future with CEGS.

Below you will find the latest video which has just gone live on my YouTube channel: youtube.com/travellingwithmother
The videos started in a predictable fashion when many of my blog readers asked me to vlog these experiences with Mother. As you will see from the collection of videos so far, it really is a library full of Mother being Mother. Eccentric, as the dictionary might explain accurately; ‘unconventional and slightly strange’.
