So what’s an English speaking Australian doing in Antigua, Guatemala? That is a great question! I know no Spanish, I know nothing about Guatemala, except one thing, the biggest Easter celebration in the world is set in the colonial streets of a small town…

We had such delicious fun it wasn’t right not to include the kids. Picture a 2 & 4 year old making chocolate, “one for the mold, one for me, one for the mold, two for me, one for the mold…” You get the idea.

Quite rightfully this is the number 2 thing to do in Antigua on TripAdvisor. Two hours went way too fast and I was literally giddy with glee the whole time. I washed my hands consistently (as I’m a finger licker)... Before I knew it we were done and the f…

Have you ever heard of a chicken drop? Possibly not. I know the RSPCA would be all over it if we had such a thing in Australia. But every Thursday night in San Pedro, Belize the chicken drop draws a crowd.

I am petrified of sharks. I come from the land down under where the Great Whites plunder (rap not intended). I rarely swim in the sea and if I do it’s more like a wade where a quick exit is available. And now here I sit. On the edge of a boat gazing at a …

Ever met someone on holiday that convinces you to do a tour? You actually know nothing about the tour, but your husband wants to go because it’s Mayan ruins and that has to end well, right? Next time do your research or you too could be on a 6-hour journe…

A tropical island surrounded by aqua caribbean waters. We have nearly 3 weeks to spend in paradise.

Thoroughly unique. Something I’ve never imagined. It’s like Disneyland meets San Diego Zoo meets an Eco-Adventure Park. And if that’s not a good enough description, well then, you’ll just have to read the whole post.

You can tell from my very first Cenote adventure that it wasn’t going to be my last. This natural phenomenon was an itch that couldn’t be scratched and I could happily spend months in Mexico visiting every cenote I could possibly see. As it is here are 3 …

So there is nothing left to do. My 2 year old had jumped, my four year old had done it, and now it was mummy’s turn. Our visit to our very first Cenote and it is everything we thought it would be.
Feb 1, 2013 Mexico
Wildly out of control in pitch-blackness with only the downward slope of the tunnel and the gushing water giving you direction… then BAM! You are out of the tunnel spinning around and around in a large dark cavity. But wait! There is a small hole in the m…

So you want to go, but people tell you not to? We found Mexico to be filled with beautiful people, the most gorgeous beaches and no fear for our life.

Jan 23, 2013 The Bahamas
Have you ever been so scared your legs start shaking? Your hands get clammy, your throats gets dry. And what seconds before seemed like a great idea, suddenly seems foolish and irrational. A scream erupts deep in the dark tunnel and then a flashing light …

We’ve seen a number of TV shows about red neck hicks wrestling alligators and we thought it would be fun to see some up close in their natural habit. So while we were in Miami we chose the Everglades Safari Park as the place to visit. Situated about 45 mi…

14 days road tripping through the US was fabulous. You can leave when you want, stay when you want, there is no crazy security quips like “you can’t take water with you”, or “that’s considered a weapon”, or “please take off your shoes and walk through slo…

Tucked away on an island deep inside the steamy depths of Miami is a lush tropical jungle. It holds some very rare types of animals. One in particular, I had never seen before! The Liger.

Never even heard of a Children's Museum before I visited the East Coast of USA. Here is our review of the Manhattan Museum, Brooklyn Museum & Philadelphia Museum. Which one is your favourite?
Jan 4, 2013 Northeast, USA
So here we are in USA with one of the greatest teams playing basketball. The games pricing changed based on who they were playing and with Christmas and New Year thrown in, there were few and far between we actually had time to see. Finally one night we d…

Dec 30, 2012 Northeast, USA
For many people Central Park is the place to visit in New York, followed by the Museum of Natural History, so of course it was on our list of things to do.
