Travelling alone with two kids from Melbourne to Brisbane

Tomorrow we are on our way to Brisbane. We are travelling without Oliver, since he flew today already. This means I will be travelling alone with Kai and Luka.

It will take almost the whole day to get there: first by car to the train station, then by train and bus to the airport, afterwards a two hour flight by plane and finally by train again.

A few years back this might have been nerve wrecking, now it is not anymore. They are nine and seven and have really grown up, they can be a big help if they need to be. So I am not worried about the trip or all the luguage that we have to drag along, yet…

An adventure in itself, one that I am looking forward to!


Mother, wife, explorer and loving the outdoors. We recently moved to Australia, so lots to explore here. We are keeping a blog about our experiences of moving and living on a different continent as a family.

  2. Im ebenfalls noch sonnigen Südfrankreich (Arles und Umgebung, einschließlich Avignon und Chateau neuf du pape) sind wir nicht ganz so neidisch, dass Ihr nun an der Sunshine/Gold-Coast etwas Erholung sucht. Gaaanz viel Freude in Queensland wünschen Euch H.-W. und M.-D.


  3. Stoer hoor, een heel fijne vakantie en veel plezier. Wat doen jullie toch prachtige ervaringen op! Geniet ervan en groetjes uit een warm Zuid-Frankrijk van Jan en Marijke


  4. Wees blij dat de reis (bagage en reistijd) niet te vergelijken is met jullie trip in juni 📦💼🇳🇱✈️🇦🇺. Fijne vakantie!
    Xx … Karin
