Art and about in Singapore with kids

When I ask Raffles and Sugarpuff if they would like to spend the afternoon visiting an exhibition at Singapore’s ArtScience Museum, the answer is a definitive, “no”. And I get it, I really do. I mean, with so many epic activities to be found when travelling in Singapore with kids, like wakeboarding at Singapore Wake Park, mountain biking at Ketam […] Read more…

Raff scooting by the rusting hulk of a crane on Cockatoo Island

Rockin’ Cockatoo Island with kids

While we’re notoriously light packers, packing the kids scooters when we’re heading on a road trip is something that’s not negotiable. Our kids have quite literally dragged theirs from one end of Australia to the other. Until, that is, Raffles’ rickety old scooter shuffled off this mortal coil and Sugarpuff grew too tall for hers.

Why travel is a gift for kids

Why travel is a gift for kids

If I had a dollar for every time someone told me we should “stop gallivanting” around the world with our kids and “wait until they’re older” to travel because they’re too young to remember or get anything out of it, we’d have enough dosh to travel with our kids full time.

My cheeky boy is one, of course, and the other is the hallowed Raffles Singapore.  I’ve written at length about my love affair with the fabled hotel before and our little travelling circus always makes the pilgrimage when we head to the Lion City so we […] Read more…

But we’ve discovered that when it comes to holidays, Canberra is cool for kids.   With dozens of fun hands-on museums and galleries, mind-bending centres of space and science, sprawling parks and playgrounds, bike paths and more, […] Read more…

Snuggling up for movies at the Novotel

Oh, my Darling: A Novotel Staycation

The winter blues make the best of us over-sleep and over-eat.  But rather than fighting it we’ve decided to embrace the over-indulgence with a weekend away, at home. As the school holidays approach, the kids are getting a little tired and crabby. And so am I because a couple of whiney-arsed kids will do that to […] Read more…

Blue eyes in the stunning blue water surrounding Green Island Cairns

Cairns with Kids: Fierce creatures on Green Island

Having visited The Reef several times, I know there is a risk, despite it’s beauty, that the kids could get hot, tired and whiney spending a whole day on the water. And that the long boat trip required to reach the reef may result in those convenient on board sick bags being activated! So, to experience a little reef magic while keeping […] Read more…
