Luang Prabang with a Little One

I must admit, the thought of travelling with a just-turned-two year old was pretty daunting. Luckily, we had the sense to ignore all the scaremongers and instead turned to the wonderful world of family travel on Insta for reassurance. If you take one thing away from this post please let it be that- travel with…

Exploring Yogyakarta with Kids

When we told people that we were heading to Yogyakarta, it was pretty much an exercise in the 5 W’s you learn in primary school. Where? When? Why? What are you going to do? Who’s going- are you taking bubs too? Well, to explain our seemingly odd choice of holiday destination, my family had booked…
