I’m Cindy Giammattei, an American expat living in London, and Piccolo Explorer is my family travel blog where I share our adventures and travels – and along the way, travel tips and reviews of hotels, airlines and attractions.

I’ve lived overseas for most of my life – first for nearly 13 years in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where I studied at an international school from first grade to high school graduation, and now in London, where I’ve been living for over 13 years with my Italian husband, Mr. G, and our little explorers, Little T and Miss A. I have a background in marketing communications and running a small business, and a passion for photography and travel.

Little T is an energetic 6 year old, who loves exploring the outdoors, building with LEGO and magnetic tiles, arts and crafts, swimming and riding his bicycle. His favorite places in London are the Natural History Museum, the Royal Air Force Museum, the Science Museum and Kew Gardens.

Miss A is a sweet, fun-loving 2 year old and also a fan of building with LEGO and magnetic tiles. She loves animals, flipping through books, riding her scooter and swimming. Her favorite places in London are the ZSL London Zoo, Kew Gardens and the Diana Memorial Playground.

As expats, travel is a big part of our lives and we are often visiting our relatives spread out around the globe, in addition to our own family holidays. Join us here for tips and reviews as we wander the countryside, visit world renowned museums and attractions, venture out on day trips and explore destinations around the globe.
