I was told these wise words on our first day in Austin that turned out to be true… “if something looks out of place and strange, it’s suppose to be that way”. It’s a city where the way of life is as laid back as Ubud, Bali and teaming with more hipster be…

It’s a first world country with first world entertainment and after a mountain of travel experiences over the last 600 days we were ready to plant our feet for a few months and do the odd attraction. In no particular order here are our kids favourite thin…

If you have been to zoos and wildlife parks before and you think you’ve seen it all, then think again. This remarkable wildlife park completely caught me by surprise. And that’s never happened with a zoo before.

Erin was gone. It was just Miss 4 and Mr 3 with me for 3 whole days. No sweat, I was a very capable, hands-on dad. But this time it was different. I was in a brand new city, a new country, and didn’t know anyone and didn’t know where to go or what to do. …

NOLA is certainly a party town no doubt about that, but families will find more than enough to do here to warrant a visit. We adored our two weeks in New Orleans and so did our kids. We kept them busy with these top 10.

What’s up with Manila? It certainly is not as exciting and easy going as Kuala Lumpur. It is not as laid back and beautiful as Boracay. It isn’t actually anything I can rave about or would care to come back to. But we have committed to two weeks here (sin…
