Our travels to Tasmania (Part II)

Today, I am just sharing lots of travel photos from Tasmania here on the blog that I was supposed to, since I earlier did this post. I won’t write much here since I have already written in quite detail in this post, if you have any questions, drop them in the comments. Apologies for this…

Our travels to Tasmania (Part I)

April has gone by so fast and yet our family has managed to pack away so many sweet memories in these past short weeks. We took a trip to the Tasmanian Islands during the second half of the Easter break. I turned 31 and Azaan turned 3 while we were away. Two family birthday celebrations…

Azaan turns THREE !

Mothering hamza was so new and unpredictable and different. I was unsure, i didnt know right from wrong. I was treading ever-so-slightly the untravelled path, afraid of making a mistake, of doing wrong by him. I didnt know what to expect, when to expect. I was a new mother with all the classic new-mother traits….

Familia in Town!

Hello lovely people, I know I have done a disappearing act from the blog this month. But if you knew how many things I am juggling in life these days, you would totally understand. My parents are visiting us in Melbourne from Pakistan and most of my time is occupied arround them. They are only…

Ballarat with Friends !

Hello friends! So the school just started again this week and isn’t that a glorious thing! 😉 About time as well, i was running out of energy to plan some activity for the kids everyday.  As we didn’t go away for the winter break, we decided to do a couple of weekend trips during the…

Day trip to Daylesford

Sharing some photos from our daytrip to Daylesford last weekend. On our drive up there, we stopped among thick, sky-high redwood forests for a while and i couldnt imagine the great Australian outdoors to be any better than that. But ofcourse, i am madly mistaken as each new place in this country invokes this feeling of…

Our time in Sydney in a VIDEO

Hi guys! I am finally ready to share a video compilation of our family from our weekend trip to Sydney. Took me a fair bit of time to get around to it actually, better late than never is my mantra as I go through each day with two kids and plenty of chores at hand….

Bondi Beach and more .. (Sydney Part II)

So I am back with another post from our weekend trip to Sydney, with some traveling (with kids) tips at the end as promised. We started our days each morning with a big, lavish breakfast each morning at the hotel. Since we have recently started renting places on Airbnb whenever we travel rather than staying…

A weekend in Sydney ..

Last weekend, we packed the car with a few clothes, lots of snacks, a couple of children books, our beach things, good music, plenty of patience, and took off on an 9 hour long journey to Sydney. It was a beautiful drive and it was definitely a highlight for me to be driving alongside uphill…

Beaching at the Brighton

I was craving for a trip to the ocean this weekend. To walk along the coast, feel the coarse sand between my toes, hear the waves roar and crash, watch the kids make sand castles and dip their toes (and head in Hamza’s case) in the water. Salt air was calling. So, on Saturday, after…

Life in the city :: Arcades edition

Funny story: today on my way back to the apartment from one of our strolls around the city, I was stopped by a middle aged local woman, who was apparently lost and asked me for directions to the Flinders Station. ME. Who is always pushing the stroller with one hand and catching up on google…
