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 ...

The Time has come!



We have finally started our journey! Here we are sitting at Gatwick Airport waiting to board our first flight of many. I have to say that I already feel a sense of relief. The sides of my mouth are turned up and I can finally relax, knowing that, what we have packed will have to do.



Being in Vancouver has made our plan a reality and the future now feels ...

Writing your Last Will & Testament

I know what you are thinking, 'Write a Will? thats for old people!' Well it wasn't exactly at the forefront of our agenda either but considering we have children, it really is the most important thing to do! We have witnessed situations where relationships have been severed because there was no Will in place. People in your life may feel that they deserve something when you pass and if you don't clearly ...

Sneakerhead Decision

Just ask my wife about the relationship I have with trainers and she will vouch that it quite possibly rivals the love I have for her, but please refrain from asking me as I may end up venturing around southend while my family venture the world. Trainers are a massive part of my life, im definitely what the youngsters call a "sneakerhead'. I go to conventions and am always looking out for the latest ...

Homeschooling when you don’t live at home

We have decided to travel at a time when 1 of our 2 children is school aged. We leave just before Easter, so Emiliana will miss the summer term of Year 1 and the two terms of Year 2. Some people might think this is reckless and that children shouldn't miss any school, but we think it's the best time to do this. We are both perfectly capable of teaching our kids, particularly as the curriculum at this age ...

From Decision to Plan

Making the decision to take the plunge reminds me of when we named our first child. We were so sure that she was going to be a boy that we only thought of one girls name that we liked. So when we saw that we had a girl, there was only one name to use. But we didn't discuss it after baby was born. Ben started calling her 'Emiliana' and although I still loved the name, it sounded so unfamiliar and the name ...

Air of Doubt

It feels like my off the cuff proposition to travel the world has snowballed into a concrete plan with only a few months till 'D' day, very very quickly! And every so often, doubt creeps into my mind. A little voice in my head says, 'are you crazy taking 2 young children around the world?... for a year!' What about health and access to medical treatment? What about mosquitos and the array of diseases they ...
