Life’s journey.

Who are we?

In short, we think of ourselves as a friendly, open-minded, well-rounded, down to earth, Australian P1040121family that loves traveling. We are in our 40’s and have always loved to travel and backpack. This started as solo travellers, then to traveling as a couple including a fourteen month Honeymoon trip and as a growing family. We now travel with our three sons, who are born in 2005, 2007 and 2009.

We try hard to be active in our community. We have a strong sense of family. We endeavour to be dedicated to our children and each other. We try not to take life too seriously and have a sense of fun. We love to meet the locals as we feel this is one of the most important aspects of traveling! 🙂 Maybe we’ll meet you?

We also have a new blog about our home life, in Perth, Australia. Check it out – Here. Besides this epic family gap year, we have been on other family trips, also posted Here on this – our first blog.

So make yourself at home and look around…

Toes on the Mighty Mekong

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. — John Lennon

He loves coming up with imagination games, ideas and plans, especially ideas for his two brothers to follow. He looks after everyone including his mum and dad. He has a great capacity for compassion and notes the fine details of life. He is superb.

He is charming and yes, he knows he is cute. We adore him.
