Family life outside the box

Our Family Travel Blog

Middle East


We are softly planning to be in Egypt for the cooler months of 2022. Possibly February/March or end of the year. We will see how we go. I think this will be an incredible experience for our kids! 


This is another country we would like to see in the cooler months of 2022. We will plan this around our time in Egypt.


We spent almost three months in Turkey from August to October 2022. Click here for the blogs on this country that we quickly fell in love with.

United Arab Emirates

On our 2013 trip, Rimaha and I had a stopover in Dubai. It was only a couple of nights but we really enjoyed our time there. I know we would love to return and see a lot more. Posts here will likely be about our time at the Burj Khalifa and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray (which is one of the most beautiful five star accommodations I've ever visited!

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!

My Favourite Web Hosting Company

 I started building websites in 2015. Since then I’ve tried a lot of different hosting companies. Siteground is the only one I recommend, and it is also recommended by my favourite travel bloggers!
