Why travel as a family? Well, that is actually more of a broad question than you think. The answer can differ for each person, although there are many common themes. For some, it is adventure. For others, a way to educate themselves about life and the world. Many are s...

We were out on a grand adventure! We were exploring and discovering the world as a family! ...and I was exhausted and crying. The baby was hysterical. It was raining and dark. And...we were lost. This grand adventure sure came with a lot of unforeseen difficulties. I k...

It's funny what can change your life. Sometimes it is a huge catalyst, and sometimes it is something tiny. A seemingly small event, a word spoken, or a picture, or a song. 

Ross and I were sitting next to each other on the couch in our home in Victoria, Australia....

Wroclaw Poland was our next adventure. So far our experiences in Southern Poland had been pretty rural. We were staying in an adorable little cottage in the woods, and we had been hiking in the forest with varying success. We'd found an ancient crumbling castle and had...

Polish Pottery. I had never heard of it before we left Australia. In fact, I didn't care much for pottery. It looked fun to make, but as for the plates, bowls and cups in my life, I can't really say that I'd ever given them much thought. I am definitely crafty, I have...

I had never expected to come to Poland. Poland is VERY far from my country home town in Victoria Australia. It was never on my radar, never a place that I knew much about. That is one of the joyful and exciting things about our crazy new life. Our journey was taking us...

Continuing on with my ridiculous romantic notions of Bohemian Czech forests, such feelings were only enhanced when we discovered the beautiful, the enchanting, the magical Cesky Krumlov.

My habit of reading lovely romantic stories set in faraway lands had produced my de...

We left the familiar orderly perfectionism of Germany and ventured off into the wild unknown of the Czech Republic. A whole new country with a very different language! I was ready for some wild, some brave, some free spiritedness. I was ready to bond with this new land...

Our first experience in the German town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber was during a medieval festival. That experience was all kinds of amazing, but we wanted to see what the town had to offer on an ordinary day. We had heard rumours about a wonderful night tour and so we...
