Carrie Bickmore details struggle after moving to London

Carrie Bickmore has detailed her family struggles after leaving Australia for a whirlwind adventure in the UK.

The Project host set off with husband Chris, and three kids Oliver, 14, Evie, 7, and Adelaide, 3, last month after announcing she would be taking a break from the desk in March.

While the family have already jetted off to France, Switzerland and Austria, Carrie said they had faced some struggles since leaving Australia.

Posting a photo of her daughter Adelaide on Instagram, Carrie revealed her little one was having a tough time with the adjustment.

"Happy to report London play centres are just like Aussie play centres," she captioned the photo.

"Wanted to do something easy and fun for Addie today because to be honest she is the one in the family that is struggling the most being on our adventure.

"Away from her home (which due to lockdown she has spent a lot of her short life in) new smells, new people, different food, tubes, buses, flights, late nights, new beds, it's a lot for her and the result is lots of grizzling, tantrums, disrupted sleep and very clingy.

"I know the special time we are getting together will be worth it for her but thought I'd share some of our realities of travelling with little ones.

"I am cherishing the endless hours together that I never get at home and happy to spend my day in a ball pit."

People praised Carrie for being so open about their journey, and offered up stories of their own experiences in support.


"Travelling with kids is the hardest….and I actually think it’s harder with a 9-year-old highly anxious child and a 13-year-old who is very frustrated by the 9-year-old, and mum and dad trying to enjoy the holiday….seriously our last trip to QLD was not easy,.. and brought out some fine mummy moments. So well done you!!!" one commented.

"Thank you for keeping it real and well done to you for seeing your child and what she needs at this moment. It’s certainly not easy travelling as a family and meeting everyone’s needs," another said.

"Sometimes it’s the simple things to just re-ground a little isn’t it! I remember travelling with ours when they were little and it is so full on," a third added.
