Oh! The places she will go with her gooie trolley bag!

Luggage love + a gooie giveaway

My kids have an obsession for luggage rivaled only by Kanye West’s for himself, and can often be found packing their bags in preparation for their next imaginary trip to wherever has taken their fancy that day. But while Raffles has already managed to acquire more luggage than the average touring drag queen in his short life, my […] Read more…

past posses of  cows eyeing us off suspiciously, to Old Bara - a sprawling working cattle farm and the guesthouse which will be our home for the next few days.

Moo Much Fun in Mudgee // Old Bara

Raffles and Sugarpuff love a road trip, and when that road trip comes with the promise of a farm stay at the other end, their excitment is off the scale. The only catch is that this particular driving holiday coincides with the youngest of said kids announcing that, “I’m never wearing nappies again”. Now let me tell […] Read more…

Executive Chef and Izumi chef with Raffles on Radiance of the Seas

A floating feast // Radiance of the Seas

Our little sailors have taken to cruising like seagulls to chips. Speaking of chips, the food on board Radiance of the Seas is fantastic. All 70 tonnes of it. Which incidentally is about what I’ll weigh after our cruise! There are so many dining options to choose from, it’s easy to find something to float […] Read more…

Raffles Ioves Radiance of the Seas this much

High seas hi-jinks // Radiance of the Seas

“Avast me hearties, let’s commandeer the ice-cream machine” squeals rapscallion Raffles, as soon as we board Radiance of the Seas. His swashbuckling sibling, Sugarpuff, hearing only the words “ice” and “cream,” draws her imaginary cutlass in readiness to storm the soft-serve station with her roguish brother. I suspect my small scourges of the seven seas […] Read more…

Carnival Spirit docked at Circular Quay

Cruising with kids on Carnival Spirit

Raffles, Sugarpuff and I are sitting by the Harbour waving our old friend and resident megaship, Carnival Spirit, out of Sydney. It’s been a wee while since our clan of clowns ran away to join her cruising circus but watching folk frolicking merrily on deck as she sails gracefully away has us reminiscing about our own […] Read more…

zongzi at Cabramatta Moon festival

Fly me to the Moon Festival

Things are bagging out down Illawarra way. And I mean that in the literal sense as we’ve arranged a special meet and greet with some cool creepy-crawlies as part of Illawara Fly’s Bugs @ the Fly school holiday event. Introductions begin with a hirsute Wolf Spider, a grotesque beast of a thing who I’m pleased […] Read more…

Huangpu River, Shanghai

The best of Shanghai with kids

Raffles has just started learning Chinese at school and all that scholarly Ni Hao-ing has brought with it a touch of Mandarin melancholy for a boy who has a bit of a crush on China. A family break in China last year was more by accident than design, the high flying capital of commerce being the […] Read more…
