Puncak Bukit - Bali
SPECTACULAR PUNCAK BUKIT
Bali is one of my favourite places to visit with my family. It offers the perfect holiday for families. There is plenty to do if you wish but it is also an ideal place to simply relax. The people are friendly, the food is fresh, the beaches are stunning and the accommodation is fabulous. It is easy to get around and you can go from the beaches of Seminyak to the cultural hub of Ubud in one day. The best part is that the Balinese love children and make you feel very welcome.Read more...
Bag a Bargain?
There is nothing that makes me happier than getting a bargain or a deal. I love 70% discounts, getting a service for half price, buy one get one free deals, free items thrown in. I feel a real sense of accomplishment when I save even a few dollars. I have always enjoyed a bargain but since having children, this need has become more desperate. In fact since my fourth child was born, it has become more of an obsession. My husband, however is even worse than me when it comes to spending or should I say not spending money. He will drag the whole family across the city searching for a bargain or spend endless hours trolling the internet for the cheapest bit of computer software which will apparently revolutionise his life (but only if it costs next to nothing). He calls it being financially astute whereas I call it simply being cheap. I blame his frugality on his English genes and his British upbringing. He was raised believing that spending no money is the best deal ever. I am more of a realist in the family and as the chief cook, shopper and holiday planner, I do accept that money does need to change hands every now and then.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...
