Book a trip

I regularly get asked how we go about booking trips. As adventurers, we tend to book flights and hotels separately rather than as part of a package. Building a holiday for ourselves gives us more flexibility and I also feel it's more cost effective. I always use the same search engines for booking our trip. [...]

Getting the perfect photo of kids

Getting the perfect photo of kids can be challenging to say the least. Are you one of those guilty parents with a phone full of shots? Constantly trying to get the perfect one with them looking at the camera? I always find it hilarious watching people trying to get pictures, the kids keep running off [...]

A review of Grotto Bay Beach Resort, Bermuda

Honestly, Bermuda wasn't particularly on my list of 'places to go'. Being pregnant, Bermuda first came onto my radar when I was researching zika-free destinations. Luckily, it's one of the few places safe to travel for pregnant women. Obviously it is not great for the world to have a zika epidemic, however it is great [...]

I am a keen traveller and was fairly devastated so many destinations were out of the question due to zika. However, with every cloud there is a silver lining! I was researching zika-free destinations and came [...]

24 hours in San Marino

I can't bare to skirt around the outside of a country and not go into it. Even if it is as small as San Marino! Completely land locked by Italy, I never heard of it when I was younger. However, this tiny nation has been on my hit list for a while, since I have [...]

Responsible Travel for Families

I am not sure if responsible travel is something that is becoming a hot topic over the last couple of years or if it's related to my influences. Nonetheless, it's something I am becoming ever conscious of on our adventures as a family. Being a regular traveller, I want to take it seriously, just like people [...]

Brisbane with a baby

When I first travelled to Australia back in 2008, I really favoured Brisbane as a city. Maybe that's because I had friends living there to show me all the best places to see. I loved the way of life in Brisbane. From commuters travelling to work on boats with the wind blowing in their hair [...]
