IBIZA ~ WITH JODI PLUMBLEY

We’ve always thought of Spain’s Ibiza as a party island but the more we research, it seems idyllic for a family trip, too. With its rich history, great food, markets, whitewashed villages, beautiful beaches, free-spirited vibes and a bohemian lifestyle, the Balearic Isle is a favourite destination for photographer Jodi Plumbley, her partner Grant and their adorable bebe Lila, three. The Ibiza regulars have kindy shared their locals’ insights and tips with The Travelling Tribe for those travelling to Ibiza with their kids in tow. Gracias, Jodi!

USING NATURE FOR PLAY WHILE TRAVELLING

There’s nothing better than slow travel. While we all went from monument to monument and country-to-country trying to tick every sight and attraction off our list in our late teens and twenties, slowing it down and really exploring and enjoying all of the natural attributes a place has to offer is very appealing now we have the kids in tow. We spoke to the ladies from Whole Beings, a holistic education studio at Tugun on Queensland’s Gold Coast, and asked them for tips on using nature for play while travelling with kids.

THE PHILIPPINES ~ WITH MIA TANINAKA

We’ve long followed the career of artist Mia Taninaka and her adventures with her man Jasson Salisbury and their son Ziggy. The trio recently visited the Philippines before the birth of their second little boy, Taro, for one last holiday as a family of three. The family spent their time chilling in hammocks, watching the sunset, canoeing, swimming until dark, laughing, eating plenty of mangoes, drinking coconuts and exploring all of the natural beauty the Philippines has to offer. Mia shares her experience with The Travelling Tribe.
