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 […]

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 […]

Winter Family Fun Mount Tamborine

As the winter creeps in, the days get shorter and the temperature drops a craving for the mountains sweeps over me with fierce obsession. I can think of nothing else but time by the fire and the cold mountain air against my face making my cheeks turn a delicious rosy hue. Early morning fog […]

Aquana Beach Resort Vanuatu

At some point in their wildest childhood fantasy, every kid yearns to grow up surrounded by adventure. Dreams of wide-open spaces that turn into the bluest crystal clear lagoons, just waiting to be explored by curious hands and feet. Reticent jungle hideouts that can only be accessed by boat are just itching to host […]
