I love to travel with the kids and explore new places

As with all busy families, we are always on the go. We have a growing business that involves a lot of travel in Australia and we also love to travel overseas. I often get lots of questions from other mums about how to travel with young children. I get a kick out of giving tips, tricks, stories and reviews from our adventures and hope you enjoy reading them too. Follow me and my family on our little adventures around the world.

Malaysian Adventures – Part 1, Kuala Lumpur

Summer in Melbourne this year felt non existent. It seemed to fly by. I’m not sure if it was that my 6 year old had broken his arm or if the weather just wasn’t quite right but I feel like we didn’t spend that much time lapping up the sun at the beach. Ten days in...
