Wondering Where to Stay in Sri Lanka? Try Mirissa, Paradise Found.


  From now on, when people ask me where to stay in Sri Lanka, I’ll say Mirissa. I think I’ve found my Paradise, my happy place. Sri Lanka on the whole brings me enormous joy, but the little seaside village of Mirissa is, I think, as near to perfect as I’ll ever find. Right now […]

Backpack, Travel Pack or Suitcase?

Bali with Kids

Gunung Agung, Bali

Finding The Money to Travel.

How do we afford to travel

The number of US States we’ve visited is pretty meagre by a lot of travellers’ standards, I guess that’s common for those of us based in Australia and the UK. I believe it’s something we should all try and put right! We adored our USA road trip in 2014, we discovered that the United States […]
