Hello & welcome to our blog.

Barney’s off on a BIG ADVENTURE and you can read all about it here.

Hello, to my friends and family, to Barneys school friends and to anyone else who’s taken the time to read our blog.

Dionne & Barney are leaving to go on a 4 month trip, to Australia & Southeast Asia. We are going to learn about new places & people. We are going to see new things, and find some new friends hopefully. We are going to make some memories & spend precious time together. We are hoping to visit places we haven’t been to before and learn about the differences between all these places we get to visit. We are on an adventure, please share it with us.

For those who don’t know me well, my name is Dionne. I am a single mother to Barnaby, who is 8. We have had a few trials & tribulations in life over the last few years and have taken the view that life is very short, and therefore you should take the chances you get and grab any opportunities that come your way and make the most of them.

I have had Wanderlust all of my life. I spent some years travelling in my 20’s and loved every minute of it. I later worked in the travel industry and continued my exploration of the planet, but got paid to do it! Barnabys dad also works in the travel industry, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise if he inherits the same desire to see as much of this beautiful planet we live on as his parents have. I’m hoping this trip will trigger this desire and open his mind to all that is out there for him to wonder at.

Many of my friends have travelled & I’d love to receive any recommendations & tips you may have. There is a contact page here, please send any thoughts & ideas to me.

In the meantime, bear with me as I learn to use this blog!
