Australia Day Weekend in Sydney – Family Travel Blog – Travelling With Kids

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 Keira’s friend Bella but this time we will visit friends of Lanni’s and our lovely neighbours in Brooks Circuit.

Our Airbnb apartment in Kuala Lumpur – Family Travel Blog – Travelling with kids

Kuala Lumpur was our second experience with Airbnb and as we had such a great experience with an Airbnb in Hong Kong. I was pretty confident that Airbnb Kuala Lumpur Malaysia would be just as good or better. I had booked a two bedroom apartment in Bukit Bintang as I was told it was a good central place to base yourselves in Kuala Lumpur. We stayed in Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights on the way through to Kota Kinabalu and another 2 nights on the way back from Kota Kinabalu heading home. I think I need to allow more time in Kuala Lumpur as I now feel that I haven’t had even scratched the surface of what Kuala Lumpur has to offer.

By now you might be thinking I’m one of those blessed mothers who’s children are always so well behaved……. I wish. Now here’s our experience from the KL Hop On Hop Off Bus.

Review – Airbnb Apartment, Granville Rd, TST – Hong Kong – Family travel blog

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!

How to survive long flights with young kids – Family Travel Blog – Travelling with kids

I must admit I was really nervous flying with kids for our long flight from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur when the kids were aged 9, 7 & 5. The flight is 8 hours and previously the longest we had flown with them was 4 hours.  Now I must mention here my kids have flown a lot just not long haul.
