People We Meet
Aug 1, 2013 Israel
Why is a fortress that was built by Muslims in the 1200’s named after a Biblical character? Who knows! But this ancient ruin is definitely one of the best preserved icons in Israel and probably one of the most underrated due to it’s remote location. But t…
Pittsfield: The Perfect End To Our US Trip | Moscow: The Not So Great Middle | Israel: Family Welcome
Jul 12, 2013 Northeast, USA
We were blessed to have relatives who recently brought and renovated a lake house in Pittsfield. It seemed the perfect end to our US trip. Plus details of our flight to Moscow & then Israel.
Jul 12, 2013 Northeast, USA
A weekend visiting a remarkable family we met in Belize. One of those weekends where it was more about the people then the place. Although we certainly enjoyed some of Boston.
May 20, 2013 Puerto Rico
An island not far off of the East side of Puerto Rico, Vieques. How to get there, what to do there & the famous Bioluminescent Bay.
May 15, 2013 Puerto Rico
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.
May 8, 2013 Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
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…
Apr 17, 2013 Antigua, Guatemala
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…
Mar 3, 2013 Ambergris Caye, Belize
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.
Feb 7, 2013 Mexico
We were so close. I reached out my hand to touch him and decided not to. He poked his little beady eyes above the surface. Glanced around and finding nothing remotely interesting ducked back under the water, swam straight to the bottom and continued to mu…
Feb 4, 2013 Mexico
I will always fondly remember Cozumel. And not because of the several things that went wrong, but because of the lunch we shared margaritas with the hilarious Americans.
Jan 9, 2013 Northeast, USA
A shout out to the relatives we stayed with in New York who were generous to the max and whom my kids still talk about. Plus a few Jewish Kosher food tips you might not have known.
Oct 12, 2012 Penang, Malaysia
A group of 8 travelling families converge on Penang to enjoy & share their nomadic lifestyles with each other. Suddenly strangers become friends and friends become family.
Oct 11, 2012 Penang, Malaysia
That was an absolutely amazing day. 3 boats, 30 people all headed to Monkey Beach. We had a 5 year old’s bday party there with fairy bread (Americans never heard of it!), we swam, we fed monkeys, and we talked for hours. You ever have one of those days th…
Oct 8, 2012 Penang, Malaysia
As the cloud of white foam closed over my head, I felt a moment of panic. My nose was blocked and I gasped. Big mistake. The soapy white bubbles slipped down my throat and I was gagging. I couldn’t get a breath in. Every breath existed of more bubbles. I …
Jul 17, 2012 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Nothing prepares you for this playground, it seems to stretch for miles, and as a matter of fact it actually covers 2 acres. Next to it is also a public wading pool with waterfall and toilets. The 2 acres is part of a 50-acre park in total. It's home of t…
Jul 11, 2012 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
If you have kids, KidZania is a must. KidZania currently operates in 10 locations around the world. The Kuala Lumpur one opened in June 2012 and is located at The Curve shopping centre. Once inside children “work” in adult jobs and earn currency. It is a …
Jun 30, 2012 Singapore
Did you know the last Tiger in Singapore was shot in 1930? This evening we took the kids to the Night Safari. Along the way we meet another travelling family - the Flashpackers!
Jun 24, 2012 Bali, Indonesia
While in Bali we joined many Facebook groups and read many blogs of fellow travellers. It was our honour to meet a handful of like-minded families travelling the world just like us, but happened to be in Bali just like us. Here you can meet them too.
