Taumeasina Island Resort Samoa

As a new day dawns on a fresh new year in Samoa, I take my first steps on the earth for 2017. It’s not at all what I had been planning in my mind’s eye, it’s raining cats & dogs, I have two children in tow & am about to make a very awkward, […]

What You Need In Your Travel Wallet

Whenever I travel with kids I focus on being super organised. My favourite travel companion, other than my family, is this a well organised Travel Wallet. As a busy mum & traveller I have found that there is nothing worse than being disorganised & under prepared, it is a sure fire way to kick […]

Family Travel First Aid Kit

I always, always travel with a well equipped Travel First Aid Kit, no matter where we are going or for how long. I guess you could say that even though I love getting off the tourist trail with the kids, I am still a crazy safety mum! I always would rather be over-prepared then […]

Ultimate Packing List For Family Travellers

Here is my Ultimate Packing List. I keep this on our computer & whenever we are packing for a trip I print it out for each person to tick off as they go. Sometimes the contents alter slightly, depending on where we are going, but usually by only adding or taking off a few […]

A quieter paced Samoa at Amoa Resort

Every now and then a place hits such a cord with me that every aspect of it sticks in my mind in glorious vivid detail. Workdays crawl by and I think about places I would rather be and people I would rather be spending time with. So many adventures to be had that if […]

It’s not everyday that a 16 year-old Australian teenager could claim to be part of a family on Pele Island, but for generations of […]

Champagne Beach Vanuatu

Every so often in life there will be a perfect moment where it all seems so unbelievable that you would swear you are part of a movie set, picture postcard or magazine cover. Cast your thoughts to a pristine, un-spoilt, tropical island in the South pacific. The sky is so vividly blue that not […]

Visale Road Trip Solomon Islands

I’m no going to lie; when it comes to a good old-fashioned road trip my family and I are failures on a gargantuan scale. Those who know us laugh about our lack of ability to get out of town without needing a toilet break and we seem to have an uncanny knack for turning […]

Bonege Beach BBQ Solomon Islands

The sights, sounds and characters of a busy Saturday morning in downtown Honiara encapsulate in a single snapshot what it is I love about travel in the Solomon Islands. A continuous parade of buses and brightly coloured vans whizz past pilled high with pikininis and their mamas heading off to the central market. People […]
