Kia ora, thanks for stopping by!
We are Riki, Sonita, and Lilah: a family of three from Kiwi land, New Zealand. In 2014 we decided to give teaching abroad a try and it didn't take long until we were hooked on exploring new places. We started in Saudi Arabia and lived there for three years. A strange place to start some may think but we are grateful for our time there. Our daughter Lilah was born in Jeddah. We love taking our baby girl on adventures around the globe, so much so that she visited 18 countries in her first 18 months of life! Currently, we reside in Busan, South Korea and we are enjoying our new lifestyle here.

We find that planning a trip has many variables, based on our own individual travel style and interests. Throw a baby into the mix and there are a whole new set of variables which means that thoughtful planning is essential. This is what originally inspired us to create this space. Some people thought we had lost the plot and others simply didn't believe it was possible to enjoy traveling with a young baby. We adore every experience we have with her and have found that the rollercoaster of parenthood is the same in the Middle East as it is in Europe. We hope that Lilah and our future kiddos will visit this space many times as they create their own pathways in life.

We are enjoying connecting and sharing with others. Hopefully, some of our experiences and tips will be helpful for you.

Happy travels :)
