Sue Radford, a mother of 22 children and grandmother to 14 more, has shared that she is on another holiday, this time visiting Dubai with her husband, Noel. The Radford family is well-known for their reality TV show, “22 Kids & Counting,” and they often share their vacations and staycations on social media, drawing both attention and criticism for their numerous trips.
The couple recently celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary, having tied the knot in September 1992. Sue posted videos on Facebook, documenting some of the attractions and activities they have enjoyed during their Dubai trip.
In one video, Sue, wearing a scarf wrapped around her head, mentions that they have arrived in Dubai and are about to go on a camel ride. She is joined by Martin, who shares their plans for dune buggy bashing in a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
Another video provides a tour of their hotel room, highlighting amenities such as a coffee machine and minibar. Sue mentions that they won’t be using the minibar due to the high cost of snacks, like crisps, which are around £8.
The couple also visits the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower and a top tourist attraction in Dubai. Noel, who admits to disliking heights, comments that being so high up makes his legs feel “a little bit funny.”
This holiday is the latest in a series of vacations for the Radfords, who often face criticism for the frequency of their trips. Last month, they enjoyed a “lovely weekend away” in their motorhome shortly after returning from a luxurious Florida vacation. Their staycation followed their 18th vacation in 20 months, during which they spent an estimated £60,000 on a three-week trip to Florida.
In a video update, Sue Radford acknowledges their hectic schedule and the need for a “recharge,” especially following the arrival of their daughter Millie’s new baby girl, Elodie-Jade. Their granddaughter is seen happily playing in a video shared on social media.
Sue mentioned that they took the weekend to recharge and play games, recognizing that their fans may be getting tired of their motorhome vlogs. She also hinted at a potential family excursion during the October half term, seeking input from their followers on which site they should visit.
The Radford family continues to share their adventures, both at home and abroad, with their large and growing family. While their frequent trips garner attention, they also provide moments of relaxation and bonding for the family.
As they document their travels, they remain a source of interest and inspiration to those who follow their journey, offering a glimpse into the joys and challenges of raising a large family.
