Let’s take a look at how to use Skyscanner to find the best bargains. Skyscanner […]

Finding The Money to Travel.

How on Earth did a family of four raise the money to travel full time for two years plus ? We did it, we’ve been travelling full-time for almost 3 years now, without a regular job, so this strategy works. We’re not rich, raising the money to travel was tough, we didn’t come into money and for the […]

Hungary to Germany. Disillusioned

Last night I woke at 1am and watched the votes from Brexit rolling in. Nobody thought it was possible, it was unthinkable and yet it happened. My country is now potentially out of Europe.  I watched from the Czech Republic, where we’d broken down in this phenomenal heat wave. A Czech police officer had given […]

Hungary. Hot and Harassed

Today was truly shitfull. That’s a word I picked up in Australia and today it is appropriate. We left Breb at 9am, another perfect morning in our country paradise, for a 2-3 day drive to London. The distance from Breb to London is roughly the same as that from our home in Port Douglas to Brisbane […]

An Educational Tour of Greece

We’ve been travelling full-time with the kids for the last 3 years which enhances their education in amazing ways. So what was different […]

Family House Sitting. Yes or No?

I’m going to say what I really feel  (surprised, right?) and that is, long term family house sitting isn’t for us. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not for you, plenty of families house sit, find good house sits, and enjoy it. But for us, as long term family travellers house sitting doesn’t work.  Mostly. […]

How to Travel With Carry On Only

If you’ve been following us right from the start, you’ll know that I always said I’d never travel with carry on only. I even wrote a post about why we’d never travel light, we just had too much stuff as long term travellers. Well that was then, this is now and lately we’ve turned to […]
