Sometimes I wonder why I even attempt this travel blog thing. I struggle to put words down, often writing sentences that make no sense. My spelling and grammar is atrocious ( thank god for spell check because I can’t spell atrocious!) and my typing is not much better. It often takes me days to get the words down, edit and publish a blog post that sometimes nobody reads and I have so many ideas floating around in my head, but getting them down on the page can often be a chore, a task, something I try to avoid…just like I avoid housework. So why? Why do I bother…
The answer is easy it is to inspire…. to inspire everyone (especially mothers) to get out there and enjoy travelling with their kids. Too many times over the years I have been told by people, generally complete strangers, that they couldn’t do what I am doing? My answer.. why not? Why cant you make time with your family the most important thing in your life? Why can’t you save money to have that dream trip? Why can’t you make lasting memories with the people you love? Why cant you make family travel, (even if it is only 15 minutes away from your house) a priority? Seriously being told that they can’t do it is so frustrating to me!!
I know that not everyone wants to travel, its not something that everyone has an interest in, I get that… actually I don’t… but each to their own! But if you want to do more, see more, travel more then I suppose its YOU who I’m writing for. YOU are the reason why I’m writing, to inspire and to prove to you that YOU CAN DO IT!!! True you might need to make sacrifices, true you might need to be braver then you ever thought you could be and true you might have to put up with wingey, wining children !!! (travel with kids isn’t always easy!) But I know…no I promise you, that you wont regret it… I for one, don’t want to waste any more of my life watching my kids grow up without spending as much time travelling with them as I can.
So I will continue to plod along on here, attempting to write down all the ideas in an legible way, correcting my many many spelling and grammar mistakes and I definitely will be avoiding the housework more… so that I hopefully inspire at least one person to get out there an explore Australia and the world with their kids.
