Over the Christmas/ New Year break we went on a camping trip to the Big 4 Taggerty Holiday Park with the kids. I had researched a heap of things to keep the kids busy and entertained but in the end we did very few of them but still found plenty to do in the area and also plenty of other things that we didn’t get around to doing. Here’s my review of the Big 4 Taggerty Holiday Park. We love camping, its great for the kids and it saves us money that we can spend on other things. (more…)
In 2014 we took a family holiday to Hong Kong to take our 3 kids aged 5, 7 & 9 to Disneyland. We struggle to find reasonably priced accommodation due to the fact that we need 2 rooms as hotels rarely accommodate 5 in one room. This means that we also have to pay 2 full room rates. This means that a 2 week holiday would cost the same as a 4 week holiday for those with only 2 kids. A friend at work suggested we used AirBNB Hong Kong to help us cut down the costs of accommodation. I’m so glad I did!
In October 2014, we went on a family holiday that took us to Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. I had wanted to go here for a very long time. A friend of mine visited here over 15 years ago and my sister visited last year with her husband. I have always been interested in the plight of orangutans and really wanted to provide the kids with an opportunity to see the orangutans before it’s just too late. I was pleased to see that a lot of work and money is going into ensuring that this is not going to become a reality.
How was Air Asia? Awesome!
After taking 8 flights with the airline in the last 2 and a half weeks I feel I have the right to say so! Any Air Asia promotion is going to save me so much money that I would be crazy not to fly with them. It means I can upgrade my accommodation. Short term pain for long term gain. (more…)
Have you heard of Viator? I hadn’t either until 10 months ago. Viator is an online tour desk! They have been operating since 1999 and have sold more than 3 million tours at over 450 destinations worldwide. There’s also an app for smart phones that allows you to make booking whilst on the road! Just for the record, I have not been asked by Viator to write a review, I have been so impressed with there service that I thought I would share the love. They regularly send out via email Viator promotion code for discounts on various tours so keep an eye on your inbox. (more…)
In an earlier post I discussed our flights for our upcoming trip to S.E.Asia & how I managed to travel to 3 different countries for all 5 of us, for…
I have a big birthday coming up in October & I always wanted to spend it in America, take the kids to Disneyland & visit Las Vegas & New York. As the date was getting closer I came to the conclusion that with the kids ages at the moment & the fact that they are exceptionally small for their ages (eg. 7 year old is the size of a 4 year old!) I decided this was not going to be the best option for us. (more…)
