Fun, Free & Easy Family Vacations & Road Trips
Adventureness was created to provide a source of itineraries and ideas for family holidays. Our vacations tend to be 2 weeks or more, and we are always on the lookout for out-of-the-ordinary experiences - not the heart-stopping kind - but activities and places that need just a little bit more searching and digging to find.
We hope you enjoy reading about these trips and that these blogs help you in your planning as well!
full itineraries will be made available for download in the near future!
Back in 2014, wanting the kids to get more exposed to our Chinese roots, we initially intended to set out for either Shanghai or Beijing, and even toyed with the idea of Western China (Silk Road).
However, for various reasons, we decided against SH and BJ and chickened out of the Silk Road (till the kids are older) and went to Taiwan instead, and what a great idea that was!
We spent 14 days in 2015 in the Philippines, partly to look at our new apartment, to catch up with friends and to have a family vacation that was slightly closer to home, with the limited time we had.
The typhoon and wet weather was against us, but that didn't stop us from having fun in the sun and sea when the rains finally stopped!
As a New Zealander who left NZ at the age of 5, Av kinda always felt that she needed to know her birth country better. The last trip to NZ was in 2001 on Dany & Av's honeymoon and we felt it was finally time to bring the whole family to this beautiful land of myriad experiences.
We are doing a 1-month road trip spanning both North & South Island in December 2016!
