Experiencing the world together as a family
A journal of our family travels for our kids who might not remember them and for others who might be inspired by them.
We're just an ordinary Australian family of 5 who have decided to downsize their life to travel the world. We've sold the house, the majority of our belongings and now the countdown is on to our departure in February 2019.
Here we will share our adventures of family travel with young kids. Aged 6, 4 and 3- the mother hen with a heart of gold, the want to be stunt boy who will give everything a go and the animal loving barefoot wanderer.
After 6 years of living the FIFO life, spending so much time apart, we are throwing ourselves in to the complete opposite, with many months planned sharing a motorhome. Can't get much tighter quarters than that for a family of 5! Wish us luck!
Destinations- Kenya, Tanzania, UK, Netherlands....and more!

Watch to find out our highs and lows of our time here and to see the end result of the projects we’ve been working on at The Bandari Project. So proud of what we’ve achieved!Read More »
- It’s week 5 here in Tanzania and we’re looking at some of the other adventures we’ve had in our time here! Zip lining, a Masai Boma visit, Tinga Tinga painting and more. Travelling as a family is definitely a challenge, but we are so grateful for the experience and so proud of how the kids are taking on all these new adventures they are faced with everyday.Read More »
- This week we are on safari with kids in Tanzania! We headed off on our safari with a mission, to complete our “Big 5” and finally see a Rhino in the wild. First stop Tarangire National Park, where we saw Elephants, Giraffes, Lions, Impalas, Gazelles, Warthogs, …a squirrel ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ and much more.Read More »
Ex-Army, ex-FIFO, fixer of all broken things, maker of stuff and smoked meat enthusiast. Realised that the school-> job-> family-> work-butt-off until retirement was not the right formula for him. Why spend the best years of your life working in hope that you will still have good health to achieve everything else you want to do in retirement? One life, living it.
