On the 26th of February 2018, we left behind the familiar comforts of home in George, South Africa, to start our adventure.
This is the post I searched for and couldn’t find when we were planning to travel from South Africa to the United Kingdom. Here’s information about the actual costs and logistics of our travel from South Africa to the United Kingdom covering our experience of travel documentation requirements, credit card applications, cars, banks, accommodation and phones. All in one place!
Meet Olive, the friendly lady from Windsor who kindly put Kate and some of our shopping on her four-wheel walker and walked us all the way home. We have to pay it forward now. Olive turns 83 in September and she says that she will live to be 100 so that she can ring the neck of whoever she pleases and I hope she does. Continue reading “Pay It Forward”
Has it been two months since we left home? Since we packed up our life, put it into a couple of suitcases and backpacks and decided to become modern-day nomads. Full-time travellers wondering from place to place. It sounds so aimless. So lost. A feeling of panic threatens to rear its ugly head seconds before we look at each other for assurance and confirmation that we made the right choice.
If we put safety first and create awareness we can all do our part to stop human trafficking.
What is my biggest fear? Hands down it’s losing one of our children or being separated from them through some kind of disaster. Read on to find out how to stay safe when travelling with children.
I meant to write every week about our homeschool woe’s, highs and lows but it’s been almost three months since that first post! Honestly, I did not know where to begin to describe the life-changing commitment that home education is. This is our homeschool diary.
Why we regret booking a long-haul 24hr 2 stop trip, flying with a lap toddler and not buying her own seat. Rant alert! Sensitive readers should skip this one but if you’re considering it please read on.
This is our ultimate Great British Bucket List!
The Garden Route is the Eden of South Africa with lush scenery, many birding hotspots. wildlife and outings for everyone’s taste. My favourite thing about the Garden Route is that each town is different from the next. Continue reading “Our Favorite Things To Do In The Garden Route”

We hate good-byes. Who doesn’t, right? They are awful and difficult to do.
One day in Wilderness. That’s all it took.
Leah wanted to do something new with her favourite local artist, Marelise, from Ubuso Studios. So we did!
Travel plans for 2019 depend largely on whether we lose our minds on the road this year or if we take to it with flair and turn into long-term nomads. I’m hoping for the latter, in which case 2019 will be our first time in the East!
We need inspiration for quick and healthy recipes while we are away from home.

Homeschool officially started on Monday 15th of January 2018 in the Williams household.
The flights are booked. The countdown starts. Time flies when you have a million things to do!
Plans for this trip have already changed a thousand times!
Every story starts somewhere and ours start on the 6th of June 2005 in an English village called Aylesbury at The Old Moat House pub now known as The Dog House Inn.
We visit interesting and unusual places often not on anyone’s bucket list. Here we’ll share anything to do with the arts, crafts and museums we come across and update the post as we go.
We’ll need to focus on our family health while on the go. Staying healthy is important especially when travelling.
Holiday with three children is not for the faint of heart. Travelling around the world with the kiddies is a whole different ballgame and requires a specialist set of gear and gadgets to make it work.
I’ve always been fascinated with our family history. My grandfather, Oupa Nick, was the best storyteller I know.
Our life birding list!
Our children love animals, but Nick, our oldest, has a special love for birds.
This is our first blog post! Ever. Post numero uno.
