My children have never been on a plane. I've never been in a position to be able to take them all anywhere. So, I decided that I would take them individually, making a special trip for each child. Just some mummy-child alone time. My first trip was to Melbourne in August 2018 with my daughter, Mia. She is 11, and my middle child. I wanted to make it special so I searched in Pinterest for all the cool places and one by one, we explored and found them. Her first experience on a plane was pretty good, and while she was nervous, she was amazing. She just did some amazing drawings on the plane. She was lots of fun to travel with. In our exploration of this beautiful city of Melbourne, we explored using trams and walking. She did get annoyed with me taking lots of photos, but that is what travelling with a photographer is all about! So, here are some of my photos from my Melbourne trip with my girl. I think one of the most memorable things we did was go to Philip Island to see the penguins. Of course, you are not allowed to take photos there, so I took the opportunity to 100% be in the moment.
