Living in the big city had worn us down. While we love London we were eager to get away. So eager in fact, we made the 6-hour drive to west Wales in one trip. Now we were in the heart of Pembrokeshire, and ready for our luxury cottage… I mean “barn”.

What a city! Dubai is bursting with entertainment; it’s big, busy and just… wow! There is so much to do within this relatively new family travel hotspot, so give yourself enough time. Don’t just use it for a transit. We spent 3 days in the shopping mall a…

When people come to Greece for the summer it is usually with Santorini in mind, or perhaps Corfu, Mykonos or Crete. Relatively little is known about the other 18 major Cycladic islands. After briefly visiting Crete last year we wanted to come back and see…

After we wrote our post on 10 Fun Free Things To Do In Perth, which was centred around our position north of the Swan River, Rochelle wrote to us asking us to do a south of the river one. Well, to be honest, I had no idea. I mean I've ventured there occas…

There are some great places to visit in Perth when your wallet is open. It’s no secret the city is pretty pricey. But can you get by with no money at all?

It’s a strange feeling the lack of bodies in your bed after so long. But it’s a luxurious feeling. The final day or my time in Ireland without the family. This one includes becoming pants-less after a Segway tour...

Mexico is a big place and I haven’t visited anywhere as much of it as I should have, so our top 5 is based around Playa Del Carmen where we lived for the month. Some of the trips will be simple day trips and some are right on the doorstep.

You could see their brains working – tick, tick, tick. The confusion behind my daughter’s bright blue eyes as she considered what we had just said. Were we joking? Did we mean it? Could they really pick up mud and put it all over themselves, play with it,…

Hotels that cater to children are a vacationer's dream and San Juan Marriott resort will sure live up to that standard. But can Chuck E Cheese?

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.
