Vanuatu - A Family Escape!

It was time to stop, it was time to take a break, it was time to escape.  Since going back to work in December and moving house last month we were desperate for a holiday.  So we escaped to Vanuatu!

Very similar and not too far away from Fiji this little island getaway did not disappoint.  We weren't nearly as active as our time in Fiji but we did enjoy a morning hiking excursion to a local waterfall (which sadly was dried up due to a drought) and went out for a snorkel to feed the fish and enjoy the views of the coral reefs.  Olivia to my amazement even got in the water with her Daddy!  Kindred spirits those two.

Not nearly long enough of an escape but it will have to do for now.  We came back a bit more rested and relaxed and I hope to hold on to some of that while we jump back into our reality which is hectic and non-stop.

We took the little one to the Sydney Aquarium today to give her a birthday treat and to give us all a break from packing.

I think it was all bit overwhelming with the crowds and fish and sights to see but she soon found her comfort and was exclaiming "fishy, fishy, fishy!" and pulling me along to take it all in.

It didn't take long however when it all became too much and she was tired and done with her visit.  Anytime we tried to show her something new she would say "No fishy, bye fishy, bye!"  And that was that, the visit was done.
