Oli took his first overseas trip as he turned 6 months, after furious research into possible destinations that:
1) wouldn’t be too long of a flight time
2) is relatively child friendly
3) can allow us to have a relaxed itinerary
4) all of us can enjoy
We settled for New South Wales, specifically Hunter Valley and Sydney.
Despite the anomaly of a storm that hit NSW the week before we were there, things worked pretty much most of the time, and we weren’t affected by any road closures or damages to work around. In the end, we chose a combination of a relaxing Hunter Valley Alpaca Farm to be the first leg of the trip, followed by a whirl of Sydney City.
Off we go!
First off, a little shout out to Starline Alpacas for the wonderful little hut. It was a lovely, peaceful and sprawling farm (we got lost in the farm looking for our hut the first night as we drove down the darkness). The 200 alpaca (yeap!) farm also included the token sheep, some pigs, ducks and an amazing view as you can see for yourself! Fair warning though, Alpacas totally will spit at you!
Since this was Oli’s first trip, naturally, his overzealous parents took mostly pictures of him looking at things:
All in, it was a fun and relaxing trip. Most importantly, it made us realise that we totally can bring Oli out to see the world, and enjoy the process of it!
Now to plan our next destination…
