Los Angeles is the gateway to the US for most Australians and Nathan and I had to admit that we really only saw it that way when we visited last year on our way to Orlando. In fact, the only reason we stayed there at all was to recover from our jetlag before we headed on to Walt Disney World. Before we arrived we honestly could not see much there to tempt us to stay any longer. Perhaps victims of too much TV drama we had the (false) impression that it was a destination for wannabe starlets with little to...Read More
If you happen to make the long trek between Sydney and Brisbane by car, you will no doubt be looking for a few stops along the way. Luckily there are lots of treasures to explore as you work your way along the Pacific Highway, perfect for a 1 hour stop to rest and recharge. One of the best spots to visit is iconic Byron Bay. Famous for its surf, laid back lifestyle and funky alternative vibe, Byron Bay is high on the list of places to visit on the NSW far north coast. We decided to stop in Byron...Read More

One of our very favourite excursions on #ourUSAadventure in 2015 was to the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) at Cape Canaveral, Florida. It was well worth the hour and a half bus trip there and back from Orlando (something we tend to avoid with our brood) and it truly offered something for everyone. Primarily an excursion organised to cater to our son’s special interest in space, it ended up being a spectacular day out for the whole family. Even our then 4 year old loved all the exhibits and the displays – I was afraid it would all go over...Read More
Wanna Go Wednesday is here and this week, with winter finally upon us, we’re dreaming of South Pacific adventure! I’ve flown over the South Pacific on the way to the US but I’ve never been to any of its exotic locations. A South Pacific cruise is definitely in my future, especially as I’ve been soaking up the photos from friends and family who have either cruised or flown in search of their own island adventure. In no particular order, I long to visit Fiji, Tahiti, Vanuatu, Samoa, New Caledonia, Tonga, Hawaii and Easter Island. I want to throw myself into the...Read More
