About Us

I’m Cindy, an American expat based in London, and Piccolo Explorer is my family travel blog where I share reviews of family days out in and around London, tips for road trips to France and Italy and advice on family travel destinations abroad.

I’ve lived overseas for most of my life. I grew up in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where I lived for 13 years and studied at an international school from first grade to high school graduation. I’ve now lived in London for over 15 years with my husband, Mr. G (from Fano in Le Marche, Italy), and our little explorers, Little T (age 7.5) and Miss A (age 3.5). I have a background in marketing communications and running a small online business, and a passion for photography and travel.

Little T is an energetic 7 year old, who loves exploring the outdoors, learning about animals and fish, drawing, building with LEGO and magnetic tiles, and riding his bicycle. His favorite places in London are Richmond Park, the Natural History Museum, the Royal Air Force Museum, Hampton Court Palace and Wonderlab at the Science Museum.

Miss A is a sweet, fun-loving 3 year old and also a fan of building with LEGO and magnetic tiles. She loves singing and playing her ukelele, flipping through books, riding her scooter and arts and crafts. Her favorite places in London are the ZSL London Zoo, Kew Gardens, the Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace and the Diana Memorial Playground.
