In less than 24 hours, we will be heading down under, to Sydney for a recharge and since I have been keeping count, this would be our fourth trip to Australia in slightly over 4 years. Truly, Australia is a country that our family enjoys visiting. I love the climate and the carefree road trips, the wifey loves the quaint cafes and markets while the monkies adore the playgrounds - they get to play without getting all sweaty and icky - and farms.
And this time around, we are very blessed to have the opportunity to collaborate with Scoot and Destination New South Wales, with the latter planning a kick-ass itinerary for our family.
In all honesty, I can't wait and neither can the monkies I reckon. Because the last time when we were in Sydney and its surrounds in 2010, the one thing that stood out for them was drinking piping hot chocolate amid the cold conditions atop Blue Mountains.
This time around though, they have an added responsibility.
Our Instagram account has been lying dormant for quite some time now so for this trip, I have tasked both Ash & Ayd to take over that account. So throughout our time in New South Wales, they will Instagram photos and come out with captions for them - entirely on their own and completely unedited.
For one bird, I figured this would make the holidays a tad more interesting for them. For the other bird, it'll help to shore up their picture essay writing skills too. Perfect use for my one stone, no?
So if you already have Instagram on your smartphone - if you don't, download it! - do give us a 'Follow' to show your support for Ash & Ayd as we bring you the sights of New South Wales through their eyes (and words). Just search 'Cheekiemonkies'. Thanks!
