Sometimes adventuring without the kids is awesome. Of course we love them to bits, but we also love each other to bits and value our ‘couples time’ and our ‘alone time’. When it’s just the two of us, we can hike further, relax a bit more, or push ourselves that bit harder. Sometimes it’s nice to just think about ‘us’. To lie in bed and talk and laugh and watch a movie without the kids in the bunks behind the door. It’s nice to read, and meditate and sit in silence. And while the kids are starting to understand the value in this, they’ve got a few years before they truly appreciate what its like to be ‘old’ like us 😛
These are the adventures we’ve had and experiences we’ve shared as a couple. That’s not to say families wouldn’t enjoy the location, it’s just our experience. There have been many times we’ve visited somewhere and realised it would be fantastic to ‘come back with the kids’, and we’ve done just that! We hope that by sharing our travels with you, that you will encounter something fun and exciting that will spur you on to make that next booking and to head off and try something new.

The first time dad has ever been worried ... of course we're all scared to death. We were driving through a mountain range down an extremely steep, slippery road and were all scared for our lives. When mum had found what sounded like an amazing free camp on Wikicamps...
For many people Tasmania is the holiday destination of a lifetime, especially if you are towing a huge caravan behind you and have a 4WD filled with kids. For me, it was a wonderful opportunity to take my family back home (from Brisbane) and show them where I grew up....
