NSW Road Trip

FAMILY ROAD (1)It’s been a little while since our last post on Icklegen, but there are plenty more to come! We’ve had a busy few weeks planning, and then going on our first family road trip; in fact, our first proper holiday as a family ever! And what a fabulous time we had. I can’t wait to tell you all about it, but thought the best way to do that would be in several instalments. Otherwise, you’ll be bombarded with text and photos before I’ve even got underway.

Our plan wasn’t too ambitious: just to set out from home and follow the Pacific Highway north towards Byron Bay. Given that Byron is an 8.5-hour drive from home, we figured a few stops along the way wouldn’t go amiss, especially with a young toddler in-tow. Besides, it also provided the ideal opportunity to explore some of the coastal regions of New South Wales.

To give you a little taster of what will follow, here are a few snapshots from the various stages of our journey.P1010837

P.S. I whipped up the blog graphic at the top of this post for free on Canva, a fantastic online tool I’ve used a few times now. It’s pretty straightforward once you get a hang of the basics and the possibilities are endless.
