My name is Danielle & I am a 30-something busy mum, wife, travel journalist & blogger.

My family & I are based in a laid back, eclectic community on the North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

I have been married for 13 years to my wonderful, hardworking & supportive husband & have two kids; a 17-year-old son & an 12-year-old daughter.

I love eating out, drinking beautiful wine, socialising, keeping fit & most of all, having adventures with my family.

After starting my journey into motherhood at the tender age of 17, I have always threatened to ‘backpack’ with my kids once they head off to explore the big wide world & I really enjoy travelling with the people I love the most. Seeing & experiencing the adventure of travel through the eyes of my kids is one of life’s great pleasures.

Travel has become a big part of life in my family & I love writing & sharing my experiences with other travel lovers.

My adventures have led me to many amazing places, unforgettable experiences & introduced me to many interesting people.

I love getting under the skin of a destination & getting the word out that the pulse of a place isn’t always found on the well-trodden tourist trail.

I teach my children acceptance & tolerance & that amazing life lessons & can be found when you push yourself outside your comfort zone.
