On one of our trips to Sydney last year, we had a free day to fill in and thought we would go for a drive to Palm Beach which is where Home & Away is filmed (fictitiously named Summer Bay) on the northern beaches of Sydney.
We’ve had a big year here at our3kidsvtheworld, its not until you stop and look back that you realise just how much we have done. Before we get into our yearly wrap up, I want to thank our followers for coming along for the ride and I am hopeful that you are all getting out there and enjoying holidays with your families as well. We don’t earn a fortune but we make holidaying a priority with what we have.
Last weekend Keira and I flew up to Sydney to visit her friend Bella. We do this regularly as Bella is Keira’s best friend from when we lived in Sydney, kinda strange as they’re only 7 but they are like 2 old women and love each others company like no other. Helps that I kinda like Bella’s mum Venessa.
Over the Australia Day long weekend, we took a family trip to Sydney to visit friends we made when we lived up there. It’s been over 2 years since we returned home to Melbourne and we thought it would be nice for the kids to go back to Sydney and see the old house and school and especially friends. Craig and I also went on a hot air balloon ride which you can read about by clicking here.
A few months back I was lucky enough to win a competition in Australian Traveller Magazine and the prize was a Balloon Aloft voucher for a hot air balloon ride for 2 people. Balloon Aloft fly in 4 different locations in New South Wales and for various reasons we chose Camden, located south west of Sydney and where a good friend of mine lives.
We thought it was about time we returned to Sydney as a family to visit some friends that we met while we were living there from 2010 – 2012. We made some wonderful friends while we were there and many have come to Melbourne to visit us. We love to see them and show them around our wonderful home town but we are especially excited to be returning as a family to check out all the old haunts! I have been back a couple of times to visit…
