Family life outside the box

Our Family Travel Blog

Featured on


Asia wasn't a big part of our initial plan. It was actually a place we thought we'd return to after our Camino in Spain (which we had planned to do from mid May 2020). 

COVID-19 had other plans for us. We decided to wait it out in Vietnam. Our one month trip covering only a few parts is evolving into a seven month journey around the country. We are planning to see much more than the usual tourists destinations over the coming months.

We have decided to remain in South East Asia until March or April 2021 so we can attempt to travel to Turkey for ANZAC day in Gallipoli.

Below, you will find all our posts across Asia as we update them.


World Travel Ambitions - Family Life Outside the Box - Saigon, Vietnam - March 2020

About Us

We are a blended Kiwi family of five. All born in New Zealand, we have lived abroad for most of the kids lives. Rimaha moved to Australia 15 years ago, Melissa, Noah and Aaliyah followed 10 years ago with a dream to someday travel the world. In 2020 we set off on our dream, stopping to live in Hoi An and An Bang along the way.

Need Travel Insurance?

We travel with World Nomads as this works best for our family. They were great help when our son had a fever right as the Coronavirus pandemic broke out!
