Easy Fancy-looking Appetizer

As we have been travelling for so long, we haven't had the chance to entertain for aaagges! We love having our friends and family over and cooking for them. So this May Bank holiday, we did exactly that. We went all out with appetizers, starters, mains of home-made lamb kebabs and tandoori chicken and a cool Easter egg berry bowl dessert. The quickest thing we made actually looked the fanciest which is ...

Renting a Condo in Bangkok

So, this was a very interesting experience! Finding a condo in Bangkok to rent for a month was actually way more stressful than we thought it was going to be. We had looked on Air bnb prior to reaching Bangkok and did a lot of research about the best way around it. We weren't sure how long we were going to spend in Bangkok, but we knew it would be at least a month. All roads led to going to Bangkok ...

Hyatt Regency Lucknow

India is such a vibrant country with so much to offer, but it can take a lot out of you. The constant chatting to rickshaw drivers about where you are from and politely declining an array of goods offered to you as you walk anywhere in India can leave you feeling exhausted! That's why we recommend a little bit of Luxury during your travels through mother India. We experienced a real oasis at the Hyatt ...

Houseboat Stay in Kerala

Our houseboat stay on the backwaters of Kerala was one of our most memorable experiences from the South of India. Relaxing on board with nothing to do apart from people watching, fishing, eating and relaxing! With a Captain, Chef and helpers on board, you do not have to worry about anything. 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. At first we thought 10 activities in 1 day might be a bit too much for our young kids and we only really wanted to do the Sky Bike. 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 ...

Mini & Zach’s Take on Monkey’s



During our travel through South East Asia, we have encountered monkeys everywhere! Our kids fortunately learnt the rules at the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Indonesia. In the south of Thailand, the wild monkeys from Monkey beach jumped onto our long tail boat and hijacked all the food they could find. Although no one was hurt on this occasion, there have been many stories of people being ...

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. See our Condo review here: When we touched down in NZ, Benjamin was probably the most excited out of all of us. NZ, had always been one of those places that we'd hope to visit someday. With a 30hour flight from the UK it's not one that we had contemplated with 2 young kids. But only 5hours ...

Living with Less

Travelling has made me realise how little we need in order to live a fulfilling life. Here is a video of my thoughts on minimalism and how I want to encourage my family to continue living this way whenever we return to normality. ...
