The good, the bad and the elephants..... When you are from the western world (U.K.) a huge animal lover and you come to an elephant park in Bali and see these animals tethered and offering elephant rides you are bound to feel a little concerned, BUT I would implore you to understand where these animals… Continue reading Review: Mason Elephant Park and Lodge (Taro, Bali)
With travel comes opportunity....with opportunity comes choice....with choice comes decision making! There is no denying it, since we started travelling last July we have been pretty much living the dream life. However behind the scenes I have still been working very hard (honestly!) I have been dedicating many many hours to running my celebrancy and… Continue reading We just can’t get enough!
Excursion review with Polynesian Adventure Tours I questioned for some time as to whether I should write a blog about our visit to Pearl Harbor because something didn't sit completely comfortably about 'enjoying' a trip to a place which had seen such tragedy and loss of life, but also nothing which I put down in… Continue reading PEARL HARBOR
What can I say?? this excursion not only exceeded all expectations but fell nothing short of excellence from beginning to end. This particular trip with Pacific Whale Foundation was recommended to us by the concierge in our hotel at the Sugar Beach Resort, mainly because they have a 'kids go free' policy which made this… Continue reading Review: Lanai snorkel and dolphin watch, with Pacific Whale Foundation – Maui
ENRICHMENT BEYOND EXPECTATION It's funny how sometimes you set your expectations really high, only to be disappointed, whilst other times you can have fairly low expectations and find yourself completely blown away - well the latter was my experience of our most recent cruise aboard Holland America Line ship MS Maasdam.

Tour Guide and Boat Captain 'Albert' from Rarotonga, Cook Islands ....Ok, Ok, maybe not with him, (although he is rather BEAUTIFUL!!!) but I have fallen head over heels in love.......with Polynesia!!! The islands, the people, the culture, the art, the lifestyle, the rituals, just everything. I… Continue reading I’ve fallen in love ❤️
Today, 1st May 2019 at around 2am we crossed the equator aboard the MS Maasdam. It wasn't the first time we had crossed from one hemisphere to another but previous occasions have been only in aircraft, so today was the first time we had actually sailed across the line, and whatsmore we now each have… Continue reading King Neptune Ceremony.
I don't mind admitting that I have moments during our travels when I worry about Cameron's academic schooling and whilst I try my best to keep his education rolling with the 'three R's' I am not a teacher and it is harder than I expected to keep the discipline of it going when there is… Continue reading The enrichment of world schooling.
This week hasn't been the best, Cameron got struck down with the flu and was VERY poorly for 48hrs, but thankfully as many kids do he has now bounced up as quickly as he went down. When we arrived in the port of Moorea, Tahiti a few days ago he was quite hot and off… Continue reading Quarantined on board ship!
