...and travel lured me back

I'm blogging after a record break of 2 months....something I haven't done on this blog for a long time. My break's been good, wonderful actually, with the little one keeping me on my toes.

We're already planning for a vacation once she's a bit older and able to travel and enjoy the sights. A family trip is what we're thinking of, since it'll be a lot of help for me and a lot of fun for everyone to be with her as well. So, now that I have a bit of free time now and then, like right now :-), I've started browsing through sites for interesting offers and places to go to.

And so what is catching my attention these days, well it's Australia! I know the flights there are long and tiring, but there's just so much to see there, that I'm really intrigued. Long international flights are something that really put me off at times, especially when there are so many great places to explore nearby, but then there are some great cheap flights to tempt you with a trip as well.

Quantas is by far the best airline to fly to Australia, since it has the maximum number of flights and numerous connections, but other airlines like Jetstar, Singapore Airlines and United are also viable options.

Since the little one is just 2 months old as yet, we're not packing our bags just yet, especially for a long-haul flight, but it's great to know the options at least and see what all is available out there.

Once you're bitten by the travel bug, there's no going back, is there? I'm sure your little one has inherited your genes and is raring to go places, too. Have fun planning that first trip with her! :)
