The Great Aus Lap

The slow life has been incredible so far. We enjoy the days as they come, free camping and unforgettable experiences. With lots of van lifers from all walks of life, different countries or cities, each sharing their story around the campfire, it is where we hear of hidden oases to explore ourselves. We are so…

The Mauritian Paradise

I last left you in Australia, where our little family was living the van life doing the great Australian lap. While our touring in Izzie had been magical, we were itching for a tropical getaway.

Dolomites * Italy

I am rubbish at organising surprises, probably because I loathe them myself and I get far too excited when I am trying to plan something, so then I blurt it out. I need to know what’s going on – always! But this year, I wanted to make Father’s Day special. Lock isn’t hard to please…

Magical Mornings

Turkey holds a place in lots of Kiwis’ and Australians’ hearts. Tales of the heroic fight during World War II against the Ottoman Empire are now remembered through Anzac Day. For decades, Anzac families have tripped to Gallipoli to stand tall with pride in remembrance of the falling and survived soldiers. Gallipoli was definitely my…
