United States


As an avid traveller, I do keep an eye on various deals and travel promotions, and occasionally one catches my eye that makes me think “wow.. that ain’t bad”. This is one of those moments.
I’ve had a few E-mails come through today about a sale that Virgin Australia are doing for flights from about $799-$849 return to the States.

If you’ve ever been thinking about visiting the US at some point soon, then now is a good time to book if you want the cheapest flight there.

  • Departure dates are between: 14th Oct – 19th Nov 2014, 19th Jan – 31st March 2015
  • You are allowed to stay away: Up to 1 year
  • Baggage allowance: 2x 23kg bags (per person)
  • Fares are on Sale until: 9pm, 2nd July 2014 (or until they last)

Seats on this deal are not available every day, with Fridays and weekends having very limited availability. Midweek days offer the best availability for the cheapest seats.

So it’s been almost a year since I first started this blog, mainly as a bit of an experiment but also as an informative place for people to find travel tips, ideas and ideas, particularly from this little part of the World. Hopefully you’ve found some things interesting, and enjoyed what I’ve had to say – Today I’m excited to be sharing my very first collaborative post, which I hope you all enjoy.

About a month or two ago, I received an E-Mail from fellow blogger Kendra, and we have been collaborating on a little project over the last little while to share some of our favourite places to travel and interesting things to do there.

Kendra is no stranger to travel, being the former Director of Communications at Orbitz before deciding to focus on family full time, and she has written a great article on one of her and her family’s favourite destinations – Las Vegas. I found it really very interesting, and something a bit more than what most people commonly associate with Vega: The bright lights, big shows and glitzy casinos. It certainly has me interested in adding it to my travel list – Hopefully it inspires some of you too!

If a fun and unique family vacation is what you’re looking for, then Las Vegas is the place for you. This historic city is rich with activities to delight the whole family. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at some of the things my family and I love doing here.
