And So It Begins… The First 24 hours Of Our World Travel Adventure

Well if the first 24 hours of our adventure is anything to go by it's going to be an extremely eventful, amazing, challenging experience! We arrived at the Gold Coast Airport very early for our flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Five hours early to be exact! It was raining and we had all our luggage with us and really, all...

Our Luggage & Gear – Packing For World Travel With Kids

Packing is hard! Packing for world travel with kids is extremely hard! Packing the right amount for 7 people without over-packing or missing anything essential is near impossible! But, after a LOT of agonising and second-guessing, I think I may have beaten the odds. I am an over-packer from way back. I think it comes hand-in-hand with my extreme indecisiveness...

Our First Week! – Gold Coast Fun and Getting Set For World Travel

We have been gone for a week now. I have been trying to think of how to describe how we are going and how we are feeling but I've been struggling to put it into words. And then suddenly, as I was walking home from the supermarket tonight, holding Elyssa's hand in one hand and a bag of potatoes,...

Welcome to Seven Wanderers!

And we're off! After making the massive but quite easy decision to travel, we have spent the last few months culling, sorting and packing up all of our belongings, organising passports and booking our first flights and some initial accomodation. It has been a massive week of moving, cleaning, and last minute scrambling and we have only just managed to finish packing our bags the day before...

USA Road Trip – LA to New York

In September 2011 we embarked on an epic road trip across the USA. Anna was five, Elyssa three and Korey just under 3 months old. It was something we had talked about doing on and off for years but never made any actual plans for, until one night we started discussing it and then bam! We decided to just...

England -Our First Overseas Holiday With Kids

After our amazing week in Paris we caught the Eurostar to London. When booking our seats on the train I took a gamble and it paid off. There were 3 travel categories – standard, standard premier and business premier. Children under 4 travel free if on an adults lap.  Alternatively, child tickets can be purchased at a discounted price. Considering...

France -Our First Overseas Holiday With Kids

Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of travelling the world, but apart from a short but fun holiday to the US with my Grandmother when I was 15, I never had managed to be the jetsetter I always planned on being (yet……..). We would always talk about travelling “one day” but for one reason or another...
