Have you ever wondered how to create this kind of image? Well it’s called a dome lens that we put over our underwater camera. We got ours on Amazon and always have so much of a laugh creating fun images with it. We unfortunately lost our original one on the last trip but it was one of the first things we replaced when we got home. Talking of photos, Esme has been taking such an interest in photography. We recently got her a VTech camera. She’s so cute wanting to bring it out and capture photos. What's your favourite photography gadget? Do your kids love to take their own pics? You can read about our other new photography gadgets in our summer haul post. Link in bio #amazon #smileitssummer ad 🐠🌞🏝🏖
Ugh we are all sick here today but I’m focusing on the positives ...With Canada at the end of this week, we also have a monthly trip booked for the rest of this year. Cant wait to tell you where we will be going ... We will be back in Alberta to the exact date that we arrived there last year. Exactly where we started our pan-America trip that turned into a round the world adventure. We are preparing already and stocking up on some new bits and bobs, like these mini sun creams. We are still recovering financially from our last trip so I haven’t booked any luggage this time 🤦🏼♀️to save the money. These smaller sun creams from the LloydsPharmacy Solero range are great for sensitive skin and come in SPF 50 for the kids and SPF 30, which I prefer to use on my own skin. They are also 100ml bottles so we can put them in our hand luggage wahooo. Almost everything we have otherwise is plastic-free which is fab. The shampoo bar is going well. I’m still working on finding a conditioner one .. Any other tips for 9 days of hand luggage? 🙈 ad
Esme has been taking such a keen interest in writing recently which has been great. Her little workbook keeps her entertained for ages, meaning I get a few extra minutes for myself when we have our afternoons out in the sun. Pre-kids I used to read books all of the time, I’ve hardly had a chance since having our two little rascals. We are slowly getting a better work-life balance since returning home . Amazon gifted me a Kindle Oasis recently and it’s given me the kick I needed to get back into it. I’ve just downloaded ‘My Mama Mia Summer’ and I am so looking forward to reading it on our upcoming campervan trip through Alberta, Canada. I have a feeling the campervan is definitely going to feel like a much slower pace of travel and I’m so looking forward to genuinely relaxing by reading and taking in some stunning views.

Throwing it back to nearly exactly a year ago... A few weeks after our newborn Quinn was born, we hit the road on a ten-month adventure during my maternity leave. Starting off in Canada we travelled pan America, predominantly by road. We travelled through the USA, all of Central America and 5 South American countries!! We also did the Caribbean, visited family and friends in NZ and Australia, before parking our butts in Bali / Singapore for a much needed rest.. Seriously an epic year... So sad to think I am back to work two months already.. Despite my eyes being like two piss holes in the sand from night shifts and long days, I am enjoying seeing the minus on my credit card and bank balance slowly improving after all our fun.. One year of Hard work .. one year of hard play 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻... Always dreaming up the next adventure .. Still trying to get @travelmaddad on board for another long-ish adventure .. I think I’ve found a good trade off deal 😝... For now we can look forward to being in this exact spot in 11 SLEEPS.. This time we are doing a camper van through Alberta which is toooo exciting .. Just an FYI I’ve set myself a challenge of using reusable nappies this trip.. They are ordered and in the post .. Seriously trying to reduce plastic consumption 💜💜 Welcome to all our new followers that have joined us over the last few days 🙋♀️
We took our kids on an overnight sailing adventure around the Isle of Wight last week. Esmé and Quinn loved the entire experience and so did we because it was something completely different! We wrote all about it link in bio to our story telling post. We worked in partnership with @sotonboatshow @theyachtmarket @borrowaboat to highlight sailing as an amazing way of travelling with little ones. There is an awesome boat show on in Southampton in September that is going to be full of kid friendly activities and will make for a perfect day trip / day out. I give details in my post about how to get half price tickets. It will only cost a family of 4 with two kids under 15, £26 for a full day out with some amazing activities ..

We did a day trip to Dover for a #coastaladventure a couple of weeks ago. Honestly the white cliffs are so stunning! We also replaced our drone after it got confiscated in Nicaragua ( ouch ££££) We have some stunning footage in this post link in bio to blog post. Also included are some amazing things to do with the kids, like very cool sand castle masterclasses for just £2! Such a fun day out and so easy to get to from London 🇬🇧 Massive thank you to @parkdeanresorts who are working hard to highlight the beauty of the British coastline.. It was so good to work with them on this. Dover anyone?
