Our Australian Family Holiday (with a One-Year Old)

Our Australian Family Holiday (with a One-Year Old)

By @wayoutfarvicki

Last month we headed out to Melbourne for our big Australian Family Holiday for a very dear friend’s wedding, taking with us on our travels for the first time, our small  one-year old baby. We have visited Australia a few times and even had lived there for a year back in 2008. It’s a dear place to us and we couldn’t wait to show it off to her plus have a great catch-up with old friends.

Flying to Australia with a One Year Old Baby

Flying to Australia with a One Year Old Baby

Wow – we didn’t mean to be away from the blog this long but life has been really busy since the baby came along and definately no time to plan trips or do any actual travel. That is until now. We have been invited to a wedding in Melbourne, Australia that we just cannot refuse to attend and figured that as most airlines offers free or very low cost flights for children under two years, we would be crazy not to give this a try.

After weeks and weeks of waiting, it’s finally the night before Camp Bestival. We’re doing this family-friendly music festival with a 7 month old baby in tow and thought you might like to see what we have decided to pack for the weekend. No doubt we’ll experience some learning curves as we go but hope we remember enough stuff to mean we can all enjoy ourselves! (more…)

We’re back! Happy New Year!

We’re back! Happy New Year!

Hello! We’d like to introduce the new addition to Way Out Far: Scarlett. She was born last month and has been keeping us very busy as we get to know her. They say that a baby changes your life and we would like to tell “they” (whoever “they” are) that “they” are right! It’s been an exhausting, thrilling, emotional, happy, tiring, fascinating and wonderful time so far and everyday we’re so excited to be on this journey with her. It’s not a road trip for sure, but there will be plenty to see and do on the way no doubt! We’ve missed chatting about travel, so thought we’d let you know what we’ve been up to and what we have planned on Way Out Far this year….

Travel With a Baby – Will it Happen for Us?

Travel With a Baby – Will it Happen for Us?

The time is almost near. in just under four weeks, we hope to welcome our baby into the world. It’s getting harder to find time to write posts and soon we won’t have much time at all as our days will be filled with feeding and catching bits of random sleep when we can. So before this fate befalls us, we thought it would be fun to put some ideas together about if and how we could travel with a baby. It might not happen for a while. We may be housebound for months as our new evil baby overlord master demands food and sleep to the point where we have no time to even shower let alone think about the luxury of travel, so this post will be interesting to revisit next year to see how far we can get planning a road trip or any type of travel with a baby. Enjoy!
