We stayed for 2 nights as the check in time is 12pm and check out is 9am so 1 night just isn't enough to really ...

Langkawi Adventure Park

When you walk around Langkawi, you will see the tour desks selling tickets to the Adventure & Xtreme Park.

But after we delved into the tour further, we realised that you only spend a short time on each activity and actually that keeps the kids entertained for ...

Exploring New Zealand in a Camper Van Part 1

We planned a 4 week road trip around North & South Island and booked a Jucy Condo Camper van to carry us around.

With a 30hour flight from the UK it's not one that we had contemplated with 2 young kids. But only 5hours ...
