Family travel

TravelWithBender.com is an established family travel blog providing practical tips and first-hand guides for families who travel with children. We present the best locations, accommodations & attractions in each area we visit.

Long-term travel

3 years ago, with 2 young children in tow, we left our home in Australia. Now at 5 and 6 years old, they have visited more than 55 countries and looking forward to conquering more in 2015/16. This journey has been shared alongside our guides on travelwithbender.com.

Food & drink

The ultimate travel partners. We love highlighting restaurants and meals in the best possible way.


There’s something powerful, almost magical about the ability to freeze a moment in time – to capture the emotion, the memories and the perspective. It provides the ability to reflect, to learn, to inspire, to feel, to communicate, to share and to connect like no other method. It is a conversation without words. A universal language that can be understood by young and old, literate and illiterate. With each photo taken a sliver of this world is captured.
