The start of our epic journey from San Francisco to Seattle and back again. This post takes us on the first 5 days from San Francisco through the Avenue of the Giants, getting bogged in the Oregon Dunes, feeling the spray of Multnomah Falls & witnessing t…

We finish our time in San Francisco with the crooked street, Full House house, eating sour dough & sailing on the San Francisco Bay.

Two nights in San Francisco is not enough! I admit it; I regret it and I will return. Our overview thanks to Hop On Hop Off, the famous Golden Gate Bridge & the infamous Alcatraz.

I had no idea New Orleans was a cultural gumbo and a place I would fall deeply in love with. Markets, Food, Steamboats, Cemeteries, Museums. Enjoy!

It is widely held that young Abraham Lincoln encountered slaves on a trip to New Orleans when he was 19 that left a lasting impression on him. In a letter he wrote to his friend in 1885, “You know I dislike slavery; and you fully admit the abstract wrong …

Josh takes the kids on a date to the famous insectarium & aquarium in New Orleans, while I have my hair done. I've also included the zoo in this all things animal post.

Freefalling horizontally meters off the ground is a freedom that vertical falling cannot provide. There is time to take in the views, the rushing waters underneath, the green trees screaming past and the people at the end cheering and hollering. I’m talki…

Flying from Puerto Rico to Atlanta, then to New Orleans. Our accommodation, how we got around, what we ate and what we wanted to do. Get the low down on the Big Easy.

A bucket list visit finally checked off. Too bad you can't climb it any more... Unless you are some big name celebrity.

Caves are generally exciting. They are dark, mysterious and untamed. Well not Rio Camuy. This cave personifies some of USA’s worst traits – it’s tame, commercialised and all about not being sued.
May 15, 2013 Highlights
Over the last year we have had many firsts. Some I would rather forget, but many I will always recall. When we meet people and they ask us our favourite stories of travelling, these are the top 5 I always find myself repeating.

Out of the crystal blue waters a brief flash of silver and excitement thickens the air. It has to be the biggest catch of my husband’s life, well after me. Fishing & snorkelling in Western Puerto Rico.

We meet Roberto in Central Park where he immediately enchanted us with his knowledge and talking skill offering us a guided tour. Come visit 4 off the beaten locations that only a local can take you too.

Would you travel 6 hours to see Central America’s largest waterpark? A secret hidden from the colossal amount of tourists and backpackers flocking to Guatemala? A local hotspot so fantastic and wonderful and cheap you can count the number of Caucasians in…

We love the beach. We lived by a beautiful beach back home in Australia. And while the Great White’s have given me some good, clear water terror I am still drawn to the magnificent ocean. So what are our favourite beaches?

The land of my husband's ancestors and his parent's homeland. We are on a mission to see everything and to do nothing at the same time. Can it be done?

7 nights on the Carnival Valour visiting St Thomas, St Kitts, St Maarten & Barbados. A dream island vacation get away.

I stood in the ruins looking through the circular gape or a ceiling watching the clouds roll by. Blue sky littered with floating white clouds passing above it like a framed moving picture. It was so beautiful I wanted to capture the moment and I did, brie…

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.
