FIVE DIFFERENT THINGS TO DO IN ORLANDO

Its safe to say when most people plan a trip to Orlando, they will be bombarded with theme park options. Disney, Universal, Seaworld, you name it! Whilst they are great fun, they can also be incredibly stressful with young children, if not planned to perfection. We visited Disney recently and being complete novices, we had [...]

It is often put on a bucket list for when the kids have flown the nest. I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t do that, because Yellowstone [...]

A GLIMPSE OF THE CARIBBEAN

You may remember, back in November we went on a Caribbean cruise with MSC. It was our first time doing a cruise,  although we have visited nearby Bermuda previously. I initially wrote an article about our take on cruising with kids. This time I want to give you a glimpse of the Caribbean, and all [...]

A ROAD TRIP AROUND FLORIDA

We had nine days to play with before embarking our cruise in Miami. What better to do than a road trip around Florida? Incorporating some of the ever popular theme parks such as Walt Disney World and Legoland, it was certainly going to be a busy few days. When we started putting a plan together [...]

TWO NIGHTS IN MIAMI

Before I visited Miami, I immediately thought glitz, glam, fashion and nightlife. It wasn't necessarily a destination that springs to mind for the family. Based on the southerly point of east coast America, it has a strong cuban influence. I feel embarrassed to point that out, but I honestly didn't know that 70% of people [...]

48 HOURS IN LA

After our epic trip along the entire west coast of America, our final stop was 48 hours in LA! In truth, we were exhausted and needing a rest so we wanted to be close enough to things so we could stroll out and have a look without too much hassle. The obvious choice was to [...]

The Ultimate Pacific Coast Highway 101 Road Trip

We didn't realise we were driving the epic Pacific Coast Highway 101 road trip, from Seattle to Los Angeles. After a while of  being the trip, we realised we were going to be driving Highway 101 the entire way. We'd originally planned to take a trip  along the entire  West Coast of America, not realising [...]

JUCY CAMPER VAN REVIEW

Ever since I travelled around NZ solo, I have wanted to rent one of those green and purple RV'S! They were everywhere in NZ when I visited eight years ago. At the time, I thought it would be epic to do it with friends. Little did I know, nearly a decade later, I would be [...]

Portland with kids

Portland, Oregon's largest city, is all about parks, cycling, breweries and museums. We travelled down from nearby Seattle and there are distinct differences between the two cities. We found Portland to be cleaner with many eco-friendly initiatives going on. I almost felt like I was in Amsterdam, everyone cycles! We didn't know much about Portland [...]
