Photo Friday: Taronga Zoo Fun

Since I’ve started blogging about traveling with my children I’ve become, what CAM disdainfully calls, a ‘paparazzi mom’.

Sydney Family Attractions

I’ve already said that my boys rated the beaches the best part of our visit to Sydney and that our visit to the Powerhouse Museum was great fun, very educational and very good value. As with any vacation with extended family, we spent a lot of time hanging out and enjoying each other’s company. That Read the Rest…

Sydney With Kids: Visiting The Powerhouse Museum

Our visit to the Powerhouse Museum was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Sydney. I’ll be up-front about this: my boys love technology.

Geek Boy Travel Photos

My husband and I both work in software. Our children, poor lambs, could type before they could write. Having a three-year-old who’s more technically literate than many most of the adults around him was extremely cool in 1999. Now, I’m paying the price. When we’re traveling, my child will take my camera and take detailed Read the Rest…

Sydney With Kids: The Beaches

Sydney’s excellent beaches were the most appealing part of our recent trip for my children. And finding a good beach in Sydney is not a difficult thing to do.

Hello From Sydney

Today’s Photo Friday post comes from Sydney. We had a busy day out on our first day trying to stay outside and active so that we could stay awake until evening-time here. This is a strategy which I’ve used time and again to help my children adjust to a new timezone quickly. The down side Read the Rest…
