MY PLASTIC FREE JOURNEY

Going as plastic free as possible has been on my mind for a while. I’ve been making conscious changes since meeting one of my best friends Cindy in New Zealand. Being a true ocean lover, dive master, yogi and general lover of nature, she has been spreading the word for years. A long time before [...]

SHOULD I TAKE MY CAR SEAT ON HOLIDAY?

Car seats have to be one of parents clumsiest over sized nightmares. I get asked the question daily, should I take my car seat on holiday? They are heavy, arm breaking pieces of baby paraphernalia that leave us parents in a state of guilt for not wanting to bring them with us. Not to mention I’ve [...]

THINGS TO DO IN ALBERTA, CANADA

Words can not describe the soaring Rocky Mountains encapsulating pristine lakes, fast flowing aqua blue rivers and cute towns with wooden buildings. [...]

MY SUMMER HAUL

Summer haul ~ If you have been reading my content for a while, you will know we are minimalists when it comes to belongings. For the last year we've been travelling with our two kids extensively across five continents. It's been really hard juggling clothes and re-wearing everything over and over again. Likewise, so [...]

SAILING WITH KIDS

The sailing world is like a whole new unexplored experience for us. Although hubby has been brought up around boats in New Zealand, neither of us have done much sailing. Every marina around the world is full of boats. The industry is so big, but also quite isolated in terms of travel. I guess it goes [...]

ADVENTURES WITH BABY JOGGER

As it stands, we always bring one stroller and two carriers when travelling with our two little ones. It all depends on what we are doing! Our nearly four year old hasn't mastered walking long distances! [...]

LIFE IS A TRIANGLE

I absolutely loved travelling over the last year as you know. However it’s not all been plain sailing. Being on the road post-partum comes with a whole host of other things to consider. It might seem quite insignificant but just simply getting back into shape was near on impossible. Strangely, I usually loose weight when travelling. [...]
