About Larger Family Life



Tania and Mike Sullivan believe in living life to the beat of their own drum and encouraging others to do the same. Not only are they strong advocates of walking your own path, even when it goes against the grain, but also that life is for living. The best way to do that is often to pack up your bags and travel – even with 13 children in tow! Yes, Mike and Tania are pro-blogging, freelance-writing, home-educating, travel-loving, recipe-developing parents of 13 children.

Staying true to their beliefs means that Tania and Mike have been able to develop an extremely flexible lifestyle, meaning that they can work anywhere, any time, leaving them able to travel the world both at short notice or for lengthy periods… and they do! As members of the International Travel Writers Alliance and with both visual and written media reaching their audience there is a wealth of opportunity available for promotion for travel-related clients.

She lost 60lbs in less than a year thanks to a programme called DDP Yoga, is constantly working on getting fitter and stronger and is now ready to fill life with challenges, as are the whole family. From treks to mountain climbs to abseiling to horseriding, if you have a challenge, no matter where, let them know. Because life is for living. Even if you’re a mum-of-13.
