We’re a family of four who loves to travel the world as well as experience what our own country (Australia) has to offer. We travel during school holidays while our daughters are at High School and try to travel on a budget, getting good value for our money. Although we do like the occasional splurge of business class and 5 star hotels.
Wendy is originally from London, England, and Dave from Perth, Australia. So between us, we have two continents covered. We also have a love for Asia.
