Magic moments at Ta Prohm

He said, She said: Siem Reap by kids

Cambodia is a place I first explored pre-parenthood. You know, back in the days when I was still spry and wrinkle-free. To this day it remains one of the few countries I’ve explored that has exceeded my expectations in every possible way.  But I was a little nervous about returning all these years later with kids […] Read more…

Tuatara, Roa - Bath Street Dunedin

Eye Popping Dunedin Street Art Adventures

One of the best things about travelling with Raffles and Sugarpuff is how what started as an organic introduction to art has become something of an obsession.

48-hours in Houston with Kids: Space Center Houston

Mission accomplished: Space Center Houston

You see the boy is so obsessed with space that’s he’s saving up all his pocket money for a $250,000 a hit ticket on a yet-to-launch Virgin Galactic space flight (yes, he’ll be saving until he’s about 157 by my calculations), and has grand plans […] Read more…

Snowmobile tours at Falls Creek

Skiing Victoria’s Falls Creek with Kids

There’s a distinct chill in the air and that only means one thing at Casa Eats World! Nagging. Incessant freakin’ nagging!
