THIS TRAVEL LIFE is a site by Rob and Clare Wood, documenting our travels around Australia and around the world with our kids Olive, Jetson and Casper.
As a couple, we began their travel adventures with a month long trip to Vietnam in 2001, and not long started to save and plan for a year travelling around the world. In 2005-6 we spent a year travelling through Central America, USA, UK, Europe, India and South-East Asia. In 2008 we hit the road and travelled around Australia, completing a year-long road trip in a campervan with our one-year-old.
Since then, there have been short trips to Malaysia in 2010 and Japan in 2011 with our two kids Olive and Jetson. In 2012 Casper joined us to Bali for a month. In 2013 we spent two weeks in China
Instead of these short trips overseas, we decided it was time to live in another country. In 2014-2015 we moved the family to Bali in Indonesia. You can read all about it on our Bali blog posts. It was a busy 2014 – as well as exploring Bali and nearby islands, we also made a side trip to Singapore, and spent a couple of weeks visiting the Philippines, USA and Canada. See more of our journey timeline.
See more of our journeys and future travel plans, which includes where we have been, what we did and what we thought of those places, and where else we would like to go one day. There are also some of our travel photos and we have made some fun top 10s from our travel adventures.
We currently living in Perth Australia while planning our next adventures. If you want to say hello or make a comment, we would love to hear from you. We are also open to opportunities working with businesses and other travel bloggers – see Working With Us!
