Living The Dream: It's More About A Way Of Life

Elizabeth is a fellow Aussie with a heart for travelling with kids. As you can imagine we get on great and wherever we end up meeting, it's going to be explosive. Come read all about how she is Living The Dream and Travelling With Kids. 


What was the first country you visited? Who with and why did you choose it? 

The first country we ever visited was Bali. The reason of choice was that it was tropical, inexpensive and relatively close to home.


When did you start a travel lifestyle? What inspired that change?

My husband and I were always travellers and didn't stop when the children were born, however we got more of a taste for International travel after our first business trip to Shanghai in 2007 and then extended to Beijing and have been bitten by the bug ever since.



Do you have a base you travel from? Or is it continuous travel? And why do you choose that style?

Our base is home in Australia and we travel as often as possible, but as we have 3 businesses we need to be at home for the majority of the year....


How do you fund your travel lifestyle? Is it something you do when travelling or are you a saver?

We fund our travel lifestyle by our savings, we are lucky that we own our own home, cars, business etc, so It gives us a lot of freedom to travel...YAY!!


If you could tell yourself one tip before you started your travel lifestyle, what would it be?

Ooh...that's tricky!!! YOLO!!! JUST GO..


What does 'Living The Dream' mean to you?

To me Living The Dream is more about a way of life. We are blessed to have 4 beautiful, healthy Children and are lucky enough to be able to balance life, work and travel all in one.  We are very passionate about our family and will continue to teach and show  our Children as much of the world that we can, and also make them aware of just how lucky they are to be living in such an incredible Country. As long as we continue to maintain this balance and continue to grow with our family  we will forever Be Living The Dream.
