Have a laugh on me

We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

Looking back in time to those years BC – before kids!


Here’s a collection of some of my favourite photos of our honeymoon in Vanuatu.

While we drank lots of cocktails by the pool, we also visited numerous islands, swam with turtles and even saw an active volcano.

One of the highlights was flying to Pentecost Island to witness land diving – a rite of passage for many locals.

We actually got stranded there overnight because the landing strip, a grass paddock, was too muddy for the teeny tiny plane to land!

But we found the other airstrip by the light of the moon, meet local villagers and slept on concrete pillars until the plane arrived the next morning – it was truly fantastic 🙂

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  1. This looks like a fantastic trip. I want to go! And – lucky you for having a child free honeymoon. It speaks volumes about the wisdom of getting married before you have kids. We took the 9 month old P1 on our honeymoon. Romantic? – not so much.

  2. Oh, how gorgeous. My what a beautiful back you have! I am dying to go to Vanuatu x

  3. Great pics Em!! Would love to go to Vanuatu one day!! Looks so peaceful and relaxing!!

  4. Beautiful photos Em! I was 8 months pregnant on our honeymoon, so def no swimming shots 🙂
    The last shot of you and your hubby is so happy xx

  5. Looks like it was total heaven! Love the shot of the local kids. You can’t fake smiles like that.
    Vanuatu would’ve been an awesome experience.

  6. Lovely pics, looks like you had an awesome time! I was six months pregnant on our honeymoon and spent most of it throwing up (had horrible morning/all day sickness) – romantic!

  9. Wonderful photos! We had a pre-wedding-honeymoon in Vanuatu too (long story why it worked out that way) and we loved it. Had a fairly substantial earthquake one night though! The earth literally moved while we were on honeymoon! You look really happy.

  10. Oh they are beautiful. I look at our honeymoon photos and can hardly recognise myself or the person I was then. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN 6 YEARS.

  11. Great pics Em. You look beautiful and so happy (and so tanned!) Looks like you guys had quite an adventure. xx

    • It really was quite an adventure for a newly wed couple, but it just made us wish we had known each other YEARS before so we could have travelled the world together – but we’ve still got time to do that – once our kids are older xx

  12. Wish I would have seen the volcano when I went to Vanuatu. Looks as though you enjoyed your visit. 🙂 xxx Nikki @ Wonderfully Women
