Great holiday!
What a wonderful collection of activities, and how important for city kids to know farm life! Such a contrast to your Christmas vacation. I love being on the beach and swimming, but this farm/wine stay had such great variety of things to do.

Great to see you got your travel in!
However......did you have to end this blog with Now off to Krabi :p Insanely Jealous - have a meal at Kruatthara - your kids will enjoy the mini waitresses. Singapore hotel rooms do tend to be on the $$$ side for very little dont they? Glad you got to open the park how fantastic for your little ones.

Thanks cindy
Yes had to go super commercial then end with something a bit more real... But, turns out in the 4 years since i was herd krabi had grown up! Free wifi for example :) still, tomorrow we are off on a longtail, wish you were here ;)

Thanks! Cairns is super touristy which is weird but then we are currently tourists so also handy! I dont really understand the bat issue but there is entire block were no one can park cars due to amount of poo! Strange issue to have haha. But still, move the parking!

Tam I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. xx

Bats, koalas and mango trees--wow!
Sounds like a very fun trip-how great to see talents coming out in the kids (the little one's golf swing). Sad and bizarre that the city wants to get rid of bats when they eat the mozzies that were eating you, and must be something of a tourist attraction. I loved your photos of them. Sorry to hear of your father's passing, though Cairns looks like a fun vacation venue to combine with family visits--lucky you!

Sounds like the ideal place for a family vacation...
Even if it is in Kuta!

Hi Bob, yes the Kuta part was a bit of a worry but we didnt really see it as we'd be back at our hotel by 9pm each night so apart from some drunk aussies quite early on Australia Day, not too much 'bad'behaviour. Lol - the kids have been down baglor road in patong so have seen some interesting things :)

So cute!
The little bunk beds and all the kids' activities were so adorable! How great that you chose a place that would entertain the little ones while you two got to enjoy yourselves, too. A fine pampering before school and fine tales for Midgit when he has to tell the class what he did on his summer holidays.

Food prices
How did you find the price of food overall? I've heard that because of the strong dollar and weak Euro, eating out in Europe is a very reasonably priced experience.

Food prices
Hi Shane, i found the prices were pretty much the same as here. In supermarkets it was way cheaper, but at a restaraunt or cafe we found it pretty much the same price if you convert. For example, a coffee would be 3 euros so AUD$4-5. One cafe we went for lunch the salads were 15 euro so AUD$20+. A croissant in a patisserie was 95 cents but i'm sure here in a bakery they would be about $2. So i guess good that it doesnt cost more! But no so good for a family of 4 eating out two meals a day...

Dancing in the streets
How wonderful - wine, sun, children laughing :) Enjoy

All things French...
The kids have definitely got your travel genes to go 28 hours without any dramas. I like the sound of the two patisseries :)

Winter escape!
Sounds like you had a lovely Victorian Holiday Tam. I think Daylesford is one of the best weekend escapes from Melbourne (even when it's freezing in winter!) :)

thanks guys! The uncle/aunt that came up were from Hobart so were right at home :) i loved the fire, rugs and up to date magazines in the cottage - very relaxing
