EL Nido, Palawan

Its Neat’o Palawan has been on the bucket list for some years, we just hadn’t managed time to get there. We were time poor with only ten days inclusive of travel days to make a break for it. The trip was for Locks birthday – I wanted an escape with little travel time, and thankfully…

Mother’s Day

As dad puts on his uniform and packs for work, we make an impulse decision to join him. He was heading to Bangkok for a few days and we thought why not follow? After scrambling together our bags, snacks and bottles, we too were packed and ready to race out the door. We make the…

Jetpack

I recently read a discussion on the world schoolers Facebook page regarding items travelling families take away with them, and nifty ideas of how to reduce their load. This brings me to Riley’s jetpack, basically our life changing must haves!! We have already lost two bags, accidentally checked in nappies, brought chemist items in airports…
