Get to know the fam Friday! .
It’s been a long time since I’ve introduced myself on here (not a fan of being in front of the camera) and I have new followers I need to meet. First of all, THANK YOU!! It’s an honour that you allow my little squares of life into your day! I’m hoping to share little bits of our life that might inspire you to get outside, explore, travel, or stay home, decorate, bake.. anything!! .
.
So here’s my sweetheart Henry, he’s an airline pilot who loves camping better than any other travel (okay actually glamping, he won’t sleep in a tent!😂) which is how we got our insta name.
.
And this is me Tracey, I’m the voice on here, I love taking photos and love sharing little snippets of my life on here.. we have 3 girls, a dog and a cat and you’ll see them featured on here because we adults prefer to stay behind the camera for the most part! Oh and I’m crazy about Christmas!!!!!🌲🌲🌲🌲How about you, crazy for Christmas too?🌲
.
So i know it’s a busy weekend ahead for most of you, I won’t keep you any longer, hope you have fun!! Happy Friday my friends!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Have you been to the Largest Playground in the Southern Hemisphere? If this isn’t something to tick off your family bucket list.. I don’t know what is!
.
Welcome to the Margaret Mahy Playground in the centre of Christchurch, New Zealand. It is by far my kids favourite playground ever and has activities for babies up to teenagers. .
There is a huge metal slide that you never have to wait for.. a huge hill for rock climbing... a blackout slide.. and for adults.. coffee on site!
.
Tips: there’s free parking next to the playground, although I wouldn’t expect it during peak times likes school holidays! The quietest time is early morning or while kids are at school. .
Tip 2: Bring your swimsuit and a bucket.. I’ll show you why in the next post!.
.
Tip 3: bring food for the bbq because there are communal bbqs to use and picnic tables under cover. This is right next to the car park so you can really make an afternoon of it!

Had the best day with these two little people 🇸🇪 Belle is luckily enough to of already done this city before but it's little Frank's first time and he is pretty damn impressed. We have got so much fresh air, played in chilly parks, warmed up with hot tomte lattes (again!!) But with an extra shot of espresso today, thanks for the recommendation @annakristinakumm we then ventured to the Christmas market and I can admit I cried a couple of times. The sheer amount of light, festive music, general vibe and the way this country go out of they're way to make children's lives so amazing absolutely overwhelms me. Inside Tomte huset (father Christmas' house) they saw where the magic happens, the elves making gifts, the children sat and wrote him a letter and posted it and saw it fly away and turned around to see him, Tomte himself. It was genuinely so emotional. It really was any children's dream come true. 
After some Swedish beer and chocolate I am ready for bed.

INVERIN 🇮🇪// Ok I know this sounds pretty obvious but I was blown away with how GREEN Ireland was 😂 Even in November! And I live in a super green place. 🍀 
But. This day of our Irish road trip was one of my favorite. We meandered along the coast and stopped at random spots to walk down to the water or along the bluffs. We ended the night with sunset at the Cliffs of Moher which was like stepping in to Star Wars (And I totally channeled my best Rey vibes). Side trips and adventures like this are why I love road tripping so much. Being able to choose the long way. Do you like toad trips?

¡Pura Vida! Costa Rica Lifestyle. ... Simply translated, it means “simple life” or “pure life”, but here in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is a way of life. Costa Ricans (Ticos) use this term to say hello, to say goodbye, to say everything's great, to say everything's cool.

Most people we have spoke to since we got here only have a few days to squeeze in as much as possible. There's zip lining, jungle treks, hot springs, boat trips, horse riding, volcano hikes, animal tours...the list goes on!
.
.
We're lucky enough to be here for a week which gives us plenty time to just slowly wander about and explore the town at our own pace. Look at this amazing street art we found ❤
.
.
We bought water guns, splashed about in the fountain in the park, drank smoothies,  bought fresh fruit from the local market we found hidden away at the back of town, ate some amazing Costa Rican food (well I did, the girls ate a bowl of chips and wasted the spaghetti Bolognese 🙄), we've practiced our Spanish and are now about to have a wee siesta whilst listening to the sounds of the rainforest 👌😍 Bliss.

I am finally getting into the Christmas🎄 spirit! There is still so much to do and prepare but I am getting excited. Tomorrow we host our annual early Yuletide get together with our local friends before we go away for the holidays. I've been running around town buying my last few ingredients. And we are busy preparing some delicious dishes. My poppyseed cake is the oven as we speak. And it smells delicious! 😋
Oh, before I forget. We've got a great Christmas market blog post in the works. If all goes well we'll have it ready for you guys by Monday! 👪

Christmas markets are just magical! The lights, festive music, beautiful gifts surrounding a larger than life tree. That and all the food and drink 😍😍 today I’ve had potato pancakes, langos, cheese pretzel, roasted potatoes & mushrooms and sugar roasted almonds for desert. All with some glühwein to wash it down 😋 I’ll blame it on baby weight 😜

Watching the last of the sun's rays dip behind the hills on the last night of our road trip 🥰 It's been an epic adventure - 1600km from Adelaide to Sydney, via city, country, bush and outback. What a massive, beautiful country we have here down under! Bring on the next #supermumssuperroadtrip !!!! .

Today we went to #laboca which is (according to the guide books) the shady area in #buenosaires. Accordingly, we armed the children. @ouradventuresnearandfar #bestparentsever #donttakeaknifetoagunfight #stillnobodywaskungfufighting #managedtofindanotherdodgybar
The Brookfield Place had these dancing luminaries and I fell in love! 😍 I think that the kids did too!
.
This city has so much beauty in it.  These lights were mesmerizing and right outside the complex doors is a great view of the Hudson River!  There is shopping galore (although it’s higher end so of course this mama of 4 isn’t shopping there 🤣) but it’s definitely fun to walk around!  So many restaurant options too!

Introducing...the Virtual Family Explorers Club!
.
I’m a big fan of monthly commitments. I’m in several book clubs, and I like making goals of things to learn each month. Plus, I love those gifts where one activity a month is planned - my husband and I have done those for dates, and my kids have done that for Dan. They just made little coupons and it’s fun to pick one out each month to do together.
.
And I want you to get out and explore, too! So many of you have said to me that you want to get out more with your families, but you feel daunted either by the planning of it or the doing of it. I want to help! Because I promise it’s always worth it. These will be simple activities (no flying to India on this list) that you can do wherever you live and on any budget, but that will encourage you to get out and EXPLORE with your families.
.
Basically, this will work just like a virtual book club, but with adventure prompts. Go spend some time and build connections with the people you love anytime during the month, and try to learn something along the way. Then we’ll all share what we did at the end of the month. Sound fun?
.
Are you in? Here’s the list!
.
1. January: Go on a hike
2. February: Go to a museum
3. March: Watch a sporting event
4. April: Visit a historic site
5. May: Go on a science walk (look for bugs, stars, etc.)
6. June: Go to a national, state, or county park or garden
7. July: Play in the water
8. August: Have a picnic and listen to music (at an outdoor concert or play your own!)
9. September: Visit a religious site (preferably not your own!)
10. October: Find some street art
11. November: Visit a new-to-you library
12. December: Eat a food from another country (either at a restaurant or homemade!)

Our first trip with our 10 week new bunny was to our favorite Spain - Mallorca. Balaji & I both agreed it was a success!

Balaji slept better but I had the same quality of sleep, we both heartily ate Paella for almost all the meals, we enjoyed the warmer/lighter days, S and I snacked on Churros one evening to our heart's content, S managed to find her beach time and there were only a couple of meltdowns! Onward flight saw us change 2 layers of clothes, return flight saw us calming down the little one towards the end! Oh yes..I still have back pain from the pregnancy and delivery 🙄 To us this is a successful trip 🥂 We celebrated it by buying an Italian red in the duty free 😅

Look at those colors and the empty beach💛 Do you know there is a gorgeous natural reserve in Mallorca that has stunning beaches, wetlands and rugged coast? We took a few walking routes, beach hopped and enjoyed the beautiful vistas all without the crowd! Spain is just wonderful during winter 👌

There aren’t many places that do Christmas like London.

But, Tampa might be a close second (maybe I’m biased). We have so much Christmas fun around Tampa this weekend that I’m starting to wonder how we are going to fit it all in.

Tomorrow we are visiting Santa at the @floridaaquarium and then we are going to Christmas in the Wild at @zootampa to celebrate the holidays with Holly Berry and her animal friends. 
Sunday we are visiting all of the things that we haven’t made time for - the winter village downtown, the Christmas Trolley ride, and maybe even a walk looking for our favorite Christmas lights.

Are there a lot of Christmas things to do where you live?

Happy #alohafriday friends! We are home from Maui and had the best time together!
My hubs snapped this pic with my phone while we were having our family photos taken. I can’t wait to share some of the pics with all of you!
Have you tried taking beach photos with your littles? Let me just say, it was even more challenging than I had anticipated!😂

Afternoon tea at the delightful @coworthpark. The harp player totally upstaged my husband and me. Stayed turned for more on our stay at this Dorchester Collection gem where Prince Harry & Prince William stayed the night before Harry & Meghan’s wedding.

First time in Africa! Marrakech was probably the most culturally unique please we've been yet! More pictures to come but here the little bit got to enjoy crawling around an old Moroccan bath converted into a beautiful museum. Look at those tiles!

Hey friends! What are your 2019 travel plans!? ✈️⛵🛵⠀
⠀
We are so excited to transition to full time travel in a couple months and we've planned a good chunk of our first few months, but we'd love to hear what everyone else is planning... and perhaps steal some inspiration from you! 😉❤️⠀

Real life geography lessons. We don't have much in the way of an itineray other than trying to stay where its warm. Thankfully there is so much to see in this little corner of the country.

🎄 Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree! 🎄
.
.
Do they add some sort of magic fairy dust to trees to make them so beautiful and magical?!
.
.
This time of year brings a lot of busyness and stress for people. I hear mom's stressing out over "how they are getting through Christmas so far" and if they've "finished their Christmas" yet. Like they are burdened with making Christmas perfect for all! 😫
.
.
Let me fill you in on a secret. If it makes you stress and freak out at your family, it's not worth it and it's not necessary. Guess what? Your family doesn't NEED gifts. .
.
They don't NEED every moment to be magical and they don't NEED to have a million Christmas themed memories. They don't NEED to have perfect outfits matching for the perfect family photo. .
.
Christmas can't be bought. 🎁
.
.
What your family needs can't be wrapped up as presents.
.
.
But you can give the gift of your PRESENCE!
.
.
As cheesy as that sounds, you and I both know it's true. ❤ Not just your family, but your friend and neighbor too. 🤗
.
.
What can you do to give more of your presence to those around you?
.

Traveling with kids is certainly harder than traveling with out them but watching them discover a new place is so worth the extra effort. Just look at that face!

I wrote a book post about how I find cheap flights including the $270 RT tickets to Ireland last January where we took this picture. Link in profile ☝️

What are the best flight deals you've found and how did you find them?

We are busy planning some adventures for 2019 and cannot wait to make some more incredible memories as a family! We are planning on going to 🇬🇷 🇭🇺 🇦🇺 and perhaps 🇧🇸 or 🇨🇺.. Today consists of a new passport application for me as I’m the outcast with my maiden name on my current passport and fed up of the questions at customs questioning if I am Ruby’s Mum. I mean come on, I’m pretty sure squeezing a watermelon out of bagel hole is an unforgettable experience, of course I’m her mother! (Obviously don’t say that as I hand over her birth certificate and smile!) 🤣 ps- look at the state of that nappy! Tides out and it’s playtime!  #flyingwithbaby #travellingfamily #theunconventionalmum #asia #kohyaoyai #islandhopping #travelwithkids #explore #travel #travelmums #travelmadfam #travellingfamily #wanderlust #documentyourdays #kohyaoyaivillage

Since we have been back we have been telling our story to anyone that will listen! 👂🏼
When we tell people that we visited elephants the reaction most people give is “I’ve always wanted to ride an elephant!” 🛑
Most people don’t know the process for taming an elephant and the damage to the elephants spine by being ridden. 😳
There are much more humane ways to meet these magical creatures 🐘

Hiking in Malta is proving to be incredibly rewarding! You can hike up to medieval towers, WWI abandoned buildings AND get these stunning views in the process 🙌🏼 No wonder our kids get so excited when we tell them we are going on a hike! 😌

Happy Friday! It WAS until we realized we have only 4 Fridays left on the island, counting today 😭 so bittersweet. 💔
.
Though we're excited for new destinations and adventures, we've never felt more at home than here...not even in Puerto Rico or even Illinois. 😂 (we actually said that, sorry fam!) I'll for sure miss the food, while Vic can't get over our view. I mean, we really lucked out with our rental! Top floor, floor to ceiling windows, great amenities, Nina's school down the road, our favorite lunch spot downstairs... 😭😭😭 We really don't want to give this place up!
.
Have you ever fallen in love with a destination so badly that you NEVER want to leave? 🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️ Because that's how we feel. 😭💔

Hooray, after a long, cold, wet month in London we are off to Mallorca on Tuesday 🎉 Whilst it may not be all that warm, there will be beaches, sunshine (🤞) and most importantly YUMMY spanish food..... 😋 
Talking of 🏖, ☀️ and 🥘, Mexico was just the best place ever 😍 #fbf

My heart is melting (now) .. The cuteness of this picture but not all was as it seems here.. . This was right on nap time. Whilst it was lots of fun tobogganing down that hill, when they need a nap, they need a nap! Shaun and I are still laughing at the aftermath of this shot 🤣.. Both of them were screaming on the way back, lying down in their sledges, arms sprawled out in their usual drastic ‘I’m tired’ fashion ... I face planted into the snow on the way up the hill, closely followed by Shaun who tried to save me. Meanwhile kids are still screaming next to us, people asking them who their parents are? .. There they are  that’s them on the ground next to us’ 😂😂... I’m sticking my hand up.. ‘that’s me love’ .. OMG we were like a circus.  Someone tried to help us up .. She was either doing some smooth criminal slide to us, cool AF, or she recovered a fall well.. Was literally hilarious thinking of it now.. All was calm when bellies were filled and naps  were had .. 😍💜 @santas_lapland was magical for the most part but as you can imagine getting so many kids together in one place, doing heaps of amazing activities and lots of stimulation, come with dangerous ‘tired’ territory... Glad to say we weren’t the only family with kids loosing there minds a few times .. I always sighed a sense of relief when it wasn’t just us 😂😍💜💕🦌❄️🌧☃️⛄️🎅..

Just spend the last 2 days backing up and deleting pictures off my laptop because the sheer amount I take is ridiculous and my computer was over it. This might need to be a weekly thing instead of a biannual thing.

Side note: would love to upgrade my camera someday, but when I do it will be bittersweet. I’ve had my Nikon D3100 since before we had kids and it’s like an extension of me!

I have to admit, if I have seen Tomb Raider, I don’t remember much about it! 🙈 We definitely need to watch it again now that we have been to the Tomb Raider temple, Ta Prohm! .
I’m also going to use some Lara Croft inspiration tonight. We have a crazy travel day/night, and I have a feeling I am going to need some grit and toughness to get through it!  We are in Bangkok now, and land in Manila at 2am, then catch a 6am flight to Coron. Thank goodness we have an early check in so we can sleep a bit when we arrive!  Wish us luck!

Good evening from Penang 🇲🇾
•
This morning we travelled from Langkawi to Georgetown and this afternoon we went for a wander around the city ✨ We were very excited to check out the local street art and museums and, of course, eat allllll the food 🌿
•
After 3 months of keeping to an accommodation budget of £10-15 a night we realised the other day that we had lots and lots of rewards points to use up, so subsequently booked ourselves into a 3-star boutique hotel in the centre of Georgetown, because WHY THE HELL NOT! Complete with its own outdoor swimming pool, private museum and, the most exciting by far, a bath all too ourselves 🙌 
Now I love budget backpacking and the situations it has thrown us into, I think travelling this way forces us to embrace more of the local culture and means we can travel for longer 🌍, but after 13 weeks of cold and shitty showers, I will certainly enjoy that long soak tonight ❤

We are back in #rockingham #westernaustralia ! The last time we were here was back in 2003 and it’s just as beautiful as it was back then. We could totally live here. Good weather, beautiful beaches, dolphins swimming by and Australians are amazing people. 
Where would you live if you could choose anywhere?

You shouldn’t leave Penang Island without a classical street art shot! George Town has centuries of heritage, food and culture to share, definitely a must do when you in Malaysia!

La vida da vueltas y a veces se pone hasta boca abajo. Lo importante es no perder el norte, o tu norte sea quien sea esa persona porque así da igual lo que te pase, tienes un faro que no te dejará hundirte.

📸Bailarines voladores en Ciudad de Mexico, enrollados con una cuerda, sin arnés ni mada. .
¿Qué tradiciones te ponen los pelos de punta?

Lo importante es no perder el norte, o tu norte sea quien sea esa persona porque así da igual lo que te pase, tienes un faro que no te dejará hundirte. . 📸Bailarines voladores en Ciudad de Mexico, enrollados con una cuerda, sin arnés ni mada. . ¿Qué tradiciones te ponen los pelos de punta? . . . #revolucionviajera  #familiasviajeras  #metenosentumaleta  #travelmadfam  #familiasviajeras_ig  #travelfamily  #viajarconniños  #travelwithkids  #iamtb  #igersviajeros  #estoydeviaje  #littletravellersnetwork  #mequieroirahi  #holaviaje  #travelfartraveloften  #instablog  #speechlessplaces  #inspiremydestinations  #mrwonderfulcities  #mundoadictos  #awesometravelkids  #101motivosparaviajar  #unapaellanlamochila  #travellerspic  #mexico  #cdmx 
Whitehaven Beach has got to be the most dreamy beach in the universe! We got unlucky once again as far as tides and weather go, but you can see the beautiful swirls in the sand behind us...at low tide it’s even more magnificent! The sands are pure white silica so they never get hot and if they were to be melted, it would turn into glass. By far and away the most powdery white sand we’ve laid our 🦶🏻on! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is weekend!! Let’s play on the beach! And as it happens to be, Australia is full of the most beautiful beaches 😎! This one along the GOR was amazing! Although it was a little bay between the rocks, big waves came on crushing into the beach! The kids had so much fun. And we as well, watching all the tourists being surprised by the waves and getting soaked 😂🙈!

Время для себя...⠀
⠀

Как часто мы имеем такую роскошь - уделить время себе?! Даже без ребёнка я с головой уходила в работу и домашние дела, и даже на спорте я всё продолжала думать «это надо сделать и это» 🙈⠀
⠀

А с ребёнком так вообще можно забыть про существование себя 😂 С одной стороны так хочется раствориться в этих крохах, а с другой понимаешь, что для этого растворения нужна энергия, и её черпать можно только из себя 💥⠀
⠀

Сегодня я на весь вечер ушла в сауну: был «Ladies Night» с пилингом , массажами, масками и даже медитативным расслаблением под чтение одного рассказа - 2,5 часа сказки без телефона и без разговоров. А мне это так сложно даётся, я ведь люблю поболтать 😆✌️⠀
⠀

И тут я понимаю как мноооого мыслей в голове и как тяжело им сказать 🤫🤫🤫 я отдыхаю! Хочу быти здесь и сейчас, и нигде больше!⠀
⠀

Дорогие мои, удивляйте себе время - хотя бы 10 минут в день без телефонов, без дел, без телевизоров и без мыслей о делах - это творит чудеса! Спасибо любимому мужу, что он мне всегда в этом помогает ❤️⠀
⠀

Любите себя! Только тогда вы сможете дарить любовь и энергию своим любимым ❤️☀️❤️☀️

Day 5.  Today was a history lesson for all of us. Pearl Harbor. December 7th, 1941 6AM Japan made surprise attack on USA. In two hours USA Pacific fleet was almost destroyed, 2335 people killed, while Japan lost only 29 aircrafts and 64 people. It prompted USA actively join WWII. Fleet was named after USA states. Arizona memorial is built above sunken Arizona battleship. At night we watched movie "Pearl Harbor". Recommend.

Just loved the colors.
FOOD. If you have been in Oahu, you know what I am talking about. Butter garlic shrimp scampi. They were good 10 years ago and they are as good now. All those shrimp trucks along the shore. We ordered and waited 40 minutes to get them. They warned everyone in the line, it is not fast food, it is slow food. And then of course all healthy food options.

In the UK, Tenerife is often seen as a package holiday destination and many tourists stay within the resorts. The island is absolutely stunning though. Volcanic and arid in the south, tropical and green in the north, with the spectacular Mt Teide in the middle. This is our favorite restaurant for lunch on the edge of #barrancodelinfierno a great hike. The chicken and mojo at @restauranteotelo1 is divine!

We are currently having an absolute top time travelling around the back waters of Kerala. We have got our own house boat for 2 days and are setting sail on a short but epic journey. India is where we originate from and it's always an adventure coming back. If you're coming to India we would thoughly recommend getting a house boat and setting sail for a few days, we will fish, stop off at temples, check out some food markets and just have a bag full of fun! We live for times like this and are so dam grateful that we are able to take such a journey as who knows what's around the corner on this journey we call life ❤🇮🇳

NEW BLOG POST: How to prepare your autistic child for a holiday to Lapland. 
When we booked our holiday to Lapland in February, one of the biggest questions to consider was when to tell The Bears.

Telling them too early could make them anxious and our daily lives a nightmare “Are we going yet” “When are we going?” “Are we going today?” “Can we go today?” “Why aren’t we going today?” “I want to go nooooowwwwwww!” However, leaving it too late means they won’t have time to prepare. YouTube is full of cute videos of parents waking up their children in the night to tell them they are going on holiday to see Santa right now. Not us. It would send The Bears into a spin and completely ruin the trip.

So we’ve decided to tell them this weekend – four days before we go away. Hopefully this will give us enough time to prepare them for what’s coming and share videos, booklets and social stories about the different aspects of the holiday.

For families with children on the autistic spectrum, preparation, or the lack of it, can make or break a trip.

Check out my new post (link in bio) for ways you can prepare your autistic child for a holiday to Lapland. How far in advance do you tell the kids you’re going away?.

The American Venice was well worth our time (and the closest I’ll get to the real thing). A beautiful cruise around the San Antonio River was founded on great history.
.
.
Even the kids loved learning about the river and how it was formed by flooding. Even my favorite star Selena (JLo) 🤩 sat on the top of the bridge! (Pic 2)
.
.
We had the cruise all to ourselves when the freak rain and cold front finally made its way out of Texas! .
.
You can book this cruise with your hop on hop off bus tour with @goriocruises and @citysightseeingworldwide. Great packages! .

One of the best things seeing Finn get awarded the "Gifted and Talented" cup at school was his reaction... topped only by that of Matt Boddy handing out the award. Priceless! Love Finn's good friend Annabell's reaction too. 👌❤

Although it might seem hard to imagine as we are travelling around, our days are sometimes busy and being around the kids fulltime can be stressful. After a day of working online to earn our income, homeschooling the kids and trying to entertain them while we want to get some work done, this walk on the beach was a much needed moment of rest and quality time for the whole family!

What do you do to get some rest, shake of the stress or find some quality time with the family? -

After a day of working online to earn our income, homeschooling the kids and trying to entertain them while we want to get some work done, this walk on the beach was a much needed moment of rest and quality time for the whole family! - What do you do to get some rest, shake of the stress or find some quality time with the family? - #theglobalwizards  #laketyers  #realaustralia  #visitaustralia  #australia  #seeaustralia  #showthemtheworld  #travelaustraliawithkids  #takeyourkidseverywhere  #welltraveledkids  #globewanderingfamily  #loveyourtimetogether  #awesometravelkids  #fulltimetravelfamily  #wearetravelfamily  #adventureswithchildren  #adventureswithkids  #takemetoaustralia  #exploringaustralia  #travelmadfam  #wearetravelmums  #familytravel  #travelfamily  #fulltimetravel  #visitvictoria  #runwildmychild  #tinybigadventure  #fearlessfamtrav  #followyoursunshine  #mycolourfulkids 
Christmas🎄is almost here and I am getting really excited about it. Mostly because I will get to spend a few weeks with my family. I haven't seen my parents in over a year (except on Skype). And I get to see my siblings and spend fun times together. 👱‍♀️🧔👩👱‍♀️ My son will get to play with his cousin 👦👧 and he'll get to practice his mother's native tongue 🇵🇱 (and complain about it). And my parents will prepare all my favourite childhood dishes. 🥘🍲🍝
But I'm mostly happy because I recently got out of my system the thing that bothers me about Christmas every year. If you want to find out what it is, please follow the link in our bio to read my Christmas rant. I'm curious what you think about it ...

7am this morning, noodle soup and pineapple for breakfast at Cai Rang floating market on the Mekong Delta. Being able to share these experiences with Elidi is so special, we can't wait to show her our photos when she's older and talk about all the exciting things she's done at such a young age 🍜 #backpackingwithbaby #elidiluna
