Seven Reasons to go to Bali for a Family Holiday
Bali is an incredible place, one of the most special places on this planet. It is also one of the best places in the world to take your children for a family holiday.
Eat Your Heart Out
My kids are always hungry. They have an insatiable appetite and eat all the time. During school holidays, they eat from dawn until dusk. Fortunately, when they are at school, they can only eat their provided morning tea and lunch. But when they get home from school, the frenzy begins. After demolishing copious amounts of fruit, drink and whatever else is provided, one would think their appetite for dinner would be gone or at the very least, diminished. But to my amazement, they are able to eat their dinner with as much gusto. When we visit friends, I am often embarrassed because I am sure the hosts think that I don’t feed my children. Despite warning my children in advance to restrain themselves when they are out, they never seem to hold back. I think their tummies overrule their brains. They have a primeval instinct to eat.Read more...

Ao Nang - Thailand
AMAZING AO NANG
Whenever we go on holiday, we like to venture away from the really touristy parts of the country. Don’t get me wrong, I like touristy and the kids like touristy. Hubby, on the other hand likes it less. He wants to do more authentic things like camping in the desert, hiking up active volcanoes or trekking through the jungle with each person carrying their own gear (despite the fact the girls have a hard time carrying a single shopping bag, never mind a backpack). Unfortunately for him, these ideas are more fantasy than reality. But as much as I love touristy, I enjoy an adventure, getting off the beaten track and experiencing the culture of a place.Read more...
