The low, menacing clouds drifted overhead as we arrived at the most popular tourist attraction in Northern Ireland, Giant’s Causeway. The visitors centre was unlike any other tourist attraction we’d seen in Ireland. Uber modern and sleek, it didn’t quite …

Despite not having any kids or husband to wake me up in the morning I still had a reasonably early morning – bummer! I was able to get dressed so quickly without two little ones to dress and a husband to hurry. That was relatively novel, but I missed thei…

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...

The ground rumbled, the sky grew dark and a cloud of white-hot ash flowed vertically out of the majestic mountain before collapsing down the slopes scorching everything in sight. Houses were engulfed. Anyone who escaped the heat was gradually suffocated b…

When you have a flight leaving Turkey and heading to Italy, it could be considered exciting. But I wasn’t flying to Italy. I was flying into my parent’s arms. Take joy in my happy reunion and check out our stay in Civitavecchia, Italy.

We were sitting around having dinner one night when Mia presented us with a bunch of tourist brochures, a majority of them in French. One of them caught my eye; it was a cave system in France. Seeing as our last cave experience in Puerto Rico was such a l…

Amalfi lies at the mouth of a deep ravine, at the foot of Monte Cerreto, surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. The Amalfi Coast is very popular, but what about it's namesake? Could it be as breath-taking?

If our previous stay in Alacati was the hidden gem that only locals know, then Oludeniz is the unhidden gem that all the British know about. I don’t think we’ve seen so many folks from the UK (outside Australia), than in this one town. Blimey!

All I could hear was the gentle breeze softly whispering past the hot air balloon and the occasional whoosh of the flame filling the ballon, as we soared on smooth streams of air. The warm sun breached the nearby plateau casting a warm, encompassing glow …

A cliffside monastery, 5000+ year old ruins and pink domed churches. All in a day when travelling the hop-on-hop-off Nazareth to Jerusalem.

Looking up at the legendary “Treasury”, the intimidating hand-carved façade shaded from the scorching mid-day desert sun by the surrounding sandstone cliff, it was easy to understand why it belonged in the New Seven Wonders. One word could only describe i…

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,…
