We're pretty relaxed and positive people, so it's not very often we come across a place we don't enjoy. BUT there are a couple of places we definitely aren't huge fans of, so in the interest of #keepingitreal here they are!

(You may notice some if these places are...

I'm sure you've all heard this one before - that when you're budgeting for a trip you need to work out your total km & then it's simply $1/km to calculate your likely expenditure.

Now perhaps this works for some people, but it certainly has not been the case for us! And...

(Or the slightly more catty "Wouldn't it be nice if we could all afford to travel like that" 😉)

I've been travelling since I was 19. First on my own, then with a partner, and now with a family. In the 16 years since I'd guesstimate I've been travelling in some way for...

We often have people message us and tell us that we've inspired them to travel Australia, which we think is fantastic - we LOVE getting positive feedback and hearing about your travels.

Have you heard of The Family Travel Podcast?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WEREN'T AFRAID?

Look I dunno about you guys, but when I'm about to embark on a massive life changing experience I'm generally packing my dacks.

And I've done it a few times now. I've travelled solo around the world, I've moved to the UK to be wit...

Cleaning a 4x4 for export after it's travelled thousands of kms on dirt roads is not the easiest of tasks...

Step 1: Remove years worth of crap from the inside of the vehicle. Marvel at how much shite you actually had in there.

Step 2: Realise that the amount of red dust...
