Beer with a view in Switzerland

THIS TRAVEL LIFE is a website by the Wood family of Perth, documenting our travels around Australia and around the world with our three kids.

We recently embarked on a two-month tour of some of Australia’s outback, which had to be aborted due to the coronavirus.

Most of our travels have been outside of Australia. You can see a simple timeline of our previous trips, and also a list of diaries and trip summaries from many of these journeys.

We are always planning more holidays. Where to next? Well, we have some travel plans, but right now our local and overseas travel is on hold like the rest of the world while we wait out this virus thing. We now need to plan how we can continue our aborted trip taking the kids exploring the outback of Australia.
