Cruising with Kids – Tips, Tricks and What to Pack

We have just returned from our first ever family cruise holiday. 10 days aboard Royal Caribbeans’ Ovation of the Seas from Sydney to New Zealand. There are lots of online review and guides about crusing with kids, so instead of rehashing the basic info I thought I’d share with you a few tips and tricks from our trip. What to pack, what not to pack, what to expect, what the food is like and most importantly…..did the kids love...

Cruising is back, baby and we are HERE. FOR. IT! We recently got back from 10 days aboard Ovation of the Seas around New Zealand and after being initially hesitant about cruising with kids, I’m here to tell you, it’s definitely worth a look at for your next family holiday.

Paradise Resort – Gold Coast

I feel like a family holiday should be mandatory… at least once a year. I know, I know, not everyone is in the position (financially or otherwise) to jet-set all over the country BUT if holidaying with little ones has taught me one thing, it’s that happiness is contagious. Booking travel is a sure way to give your family that little spark of excitement, especially after the couple of years we’ve had with COVID and what not....

Cheap Flights – Government Travel Subsidy

Did you hear the news travel fans? Cheap flights ARE ON THEIR WAY this April! COVID has been as much fun for travellers as watching footy has been for crows fans this past year, but with life seemingly on the brink of returning to some normality (I mean toilet paper is now on the shelves again and we don’t have to buy the crappy pasta even the hoarders didn’t want) the Federal Government are going to help get us back in the air...

Gold Coast Family Holiday

OK so you’d be hard pressed bringing the kids to the Gold Coast for a family holiday and NOT taking them to at least one of the theme parks. Don’t get me wrong, the theme parks are great and kids LOVE them, but don’t spend all of your time there, there’s so much more to do, see and explore in this beautiful part of Australia.Thanks to Destination Gold Coast we just spent 2 days in Australia’s Favourite Playground,...

Fly LegsUp

On a recent trip to Europe with our three young children, I was dreading the flights. We had done a little bit of travel with the kids before, but with all three children our longest flight had been to Perth and the kids had not even looked like settling down to rest on that flight. So I was not looking forward to the 14 hour long haul flight to Europe AT ALL! Being concerned about the children sleeping or resting, I looked into a product that...

Perth Holiday Destination

We recently visited Perth for a family holiday, and to catch up with old friends. While we were there, we managed to fit in a few great kid-friendly activities and I thought I’d share them with you! I’ve also listed some other great places/things to do that I know of from living in the WA capital some years ago. What’s so great about Perth? The weather! Summer goes FOREVER in Perth so the weather is usually pretty spectacular....

Schooling on the Road – How Four Hands in a Tin Can gets the kids educated.

Making the decision to Travel Australia, with two school aged children in tow, is not one that can be taken lightly, yet it is one that we are finding many families are doing. We left home, from the Hunter Valley in NSW on 27 January 2016. At the time of writing this article we have been on the road for 816 days.  We are either really crazy, or we really do like each other!  Even we are still trying to figure that out. We are a family of four –...

Visit the snow from Adelaide (without taking out a loan)

We just got back from a long weekend in the SNOW at Mt Hotham and it was AWESOME! I’ve been to the snow before, but never in Australia and never with kids. I’ve heard some scary stories about how expensive it can be here in Oz, so we’ve previously opted to go to NZ or Japan instead, but this year we decided very last minute to see if we could put together a long weekend for my daughters 5th birthday…..without having to...

Camping with Kids – Our top tips for beginners

We have very recently starting camping and this weekend we tried out our very own, brand new first family tent! We are FAR from experts and every trip so far we’ve forgotten at least one thing, but we are getting better. I remember camping when I was a kid and it was always so exciting to play all day in a new place and then snuggle up in a sleeping bag and crash out in the tent. We go camping with our friends and it’s so great to...
