    Kyacking at Kalbarri
    The Dad & Kids holiday expanded to all 4 of us this year. We love going to Kalbarri - enjoying the beautiful weather, exploring the township and especially the reef. Trouble is, there is a 300m inlet to cross to get there. With only one kyack, we worked out an ingenious way to get there (think of the fox, chickens and grain riddle!!) It might have involved 3 trips, and us all getting a little wet but we had a... read more

    If we're out of our minds, it's alright with us
    That's it. We've done it. Our first batch of flights are booked and there's no turning back. Hurrah! This time next year we'll be the furthest away from home we've ever been - in sweet-as New Zealand. We'll get there via India, South East Asia and of course the sunny land Down Under. Then - all going to plan - a hop, skip and a jump across South America will then lead us back home to reality in Twickenham, London.Both... read more

    Who Knew A Road Trip Could Be So Educational?
    Having just returned from a campervan trip from Perth to Monkey Mia I feel compelled to document some of the stories that my travel companion and I have after our week long exploration of the North West coast of Australia. Such was the range of hectic adventures that us two delightful Irish ladies could very well have died... Just kidding, we’re not really ladies. Seeing as we managed to make the journey with no money, no map, and only a pinch... read more

    The Overlander Highway
    In 2004, I drove across the Overlander Highway from Townsville to Darwin with my boyfriend. We stopped and stayed in the small outback towns along the way, including Cloncurry and Mount Isa. We learned all the local dialect, including a multitude of ways to swear without using a four letter word, as well as learning about the interesting history of this area. read more

    "We are going to miss you" I said smiling to the children, "It won't be the same without you both" Added my husband, and with that we smile and wave enthusiastically blowing kisses out the window. As we slowly turn the corner, when we are sure they can no longer see us the screams begin!!! " WE ARE GOING ON A ROAD TRIP, NO KIDDIES LEFT TO RUIN IT, NO SNOTTY NOSES, NO WHINGING OR WHINING, JUST OPEN ROADS AND... read more
  • Kate Davidson (Australia)
    In 2011 I eloped to Tasmania with a few friends and family members. It was an excellent change from the 47 degrees I was experiencing in Perth to a beautiful 19 degrees in Hobart. I hired a car and somehow became the designated driver, the car packed either with friends or family members. My husband, who had spent a small amount of time in Tasmania growing up decided he wanted to see the peak of Mount Wellington again and punched the details... read more
