Where I've Been

 

Favourite Holidays

 

Family Holiday to Fiji

Lovely winter getaway to Denarau and one of the Mamanuca Islands.  Day snorkelling trip to Mana Island, Castaway Island and fantastic snorkelling at 'the drop off' .. lots of fish just like Nemo & Dori - a must do when you go to Fiji

Family Reunion Cruise to Northern Queensland

37 of us in total, ages ranging from 2 years to 72 years.  An excellent experience for all and a brilliant way for a family group to have a holiday without living in each others pocket and copious amounts of organisation to meet up.  We tried all the restaurants, spa/massage, gym, free kids club & chargeable kids activities, ie: sedgeways, cargo net climbing, flying fox above the pool, climbing the smoke stack (etc...), Comedy club, Galley tour, Shore Excursions plus much more.  We also had the misfortune to try out the medical facilities onboard with such ailments as infected blisters to broken limbs - excellent service all round!

Singapore & Thailand

Excellent trip with a few days in Singapore on the way to Phuket.  So much to see, not enough time to do it all.  Lucky enough to do the 3 day / 2 night excursion with Elephant Hills - 1 night glamping in the jungle, 1 night glamping on the lake as Khao Sok National Park with a day tending to the elephants - incredible experience, and highly recommended.

Vietnam

One of the best trips I have ever done, one I will definitely do again, with my kids when they are a bit older.  The history here is very moving.  We crammed in so much - Cu Chi Tunnels, War Museum, Good Morning Vietnam Tour, Farmers Herb Garden & Lunch, Cooking School, Cyclo Tour through the busy streets of Saigon - wow! 

Girls Shopping Trip to Melbourne

This is a must do for all ... A great way to spend a long weekend & get your wardrobe organised for the next season, or buy your Christmas pressies nice & early.  Good mother/daughter/cousin/aunt time or for you and your BFF's.

Family time on the Gold Coast

Not the traditional 'relaxing' holiday, it is definitely busier than lying on the beach in Fiji, but some would say far more exciting.  By the time you've done the theme parks, the water parks, the beach, the outlet stores, the malls, the cafes, the bars, Q-Tower, a bit of 4-wheel driving up Tamborine Mountain, there really is something for everyone.
