ROAD TRIP ADVENTURES AROUND THE WORLD

So here we are one year on from the beginning of our journey, and many road trip adventures around the world. We rented cars in eight countries, across five continents on our gap year. Some of the most exhilarating moments and breathtaking views were during our roady adventures. I love the fact having a car [...]

TOP TIPS FOR TAKING A ROAD TRIP WITH KIDS

Over the last year, we have driven thousands and thousands of miles with our baby and toddler in tow. Literally across continents, up mountains, four wheel driving, on the road less travelled. Starting in Canada, we pretty much did the majority of the journey to Argentina by road. From driving on dirt roads in Guatemala, [...]

3 Tips to Get a Good Night’s Sleep Outdoors

HOW TO DEAL WITH BABIES AND KIDS IN HOT WEATHER

My number one panic on holiday has to be my baby or toddler getting overheated. Will they get sun stroke? Or sun burnt? Will they get dehydrated? Maybe they will shrivel up into a dried prune? "OMG, look there is a bit of sun on her head! Quick, quick get in the shade". My husband [...]

FIVE WAYS TO TRAVEL FOR FREE

Travel for free? Come off it. That seems like a ludicrous idea to most. There have been a couple of desperate moments throughout our family gap year, where we'd almost had to book a flight home because of financial strain. We've travelled a lot, more extensively than what we probably should have done. I guess [...]

TRAVELING WITH LITTLE ONES IN A BIG CITY

When you begin to plan a family vacation, you may find yourself becoming overwhelmed with the preparation. Vacations can be tricky enough, but with little ones, it can seem like an impossible task. How you prepare for a vacation is as important as where you’re going. One popular tourist destination in the United States (and [...]

MY TAKE ON CRUISING WITH KIDS

As inherent backpackers, cruising with kids is not something I had considered as a way of travelling. Although the concept of moving from place to place, see as much as possible, is quite similar. Travelling full time with two young kids comes with its challenges. The main concern is keeping our three year old happy and [...]

WHAT DID WE BRING WITH US FOR A YEAR?

WHAT DID WE BRING WITH US FOR A YEAR? When we tell people we are on a family gap year, they always ask us about our luggage. How did you pack? What did you bring? How did you decide what to take? Predictable questions because everyone wants to know how it's possible. Let me tell [...]

FORMULA FEEDING TRAVEL TIPS

I'm a strong proponent of fed is best but boy does being a formula feeding mama complicate things when you are traveling. Formula feeding adds on a whole extra layer of equipment and logistics to think about and was arguably one of the things I stressed about the most before we started traveling with our little lady.

Breastfeeding when travelling

Whilst I know some mums can't breastfeed, and I totally sympathise, its the one thing that makes me feel safe travelling to exotic places with such a young baby. I am very grateful not to have the hassle of washing bottles and worrying about sterilising. That said, there are plenty of mums that manage just fine [...]
