Who are we?

Our names are Sharon and Joshua and we love Malaysia!

We have travelled the country extensively as well as lived in Penang with our young family. We really valued this experience and now visit Malaysia multiple times per year with our three kids currently aged 7, 11 and 13 from Australia. We have been travelling in Malaysia since they were babies!

We can’t recommend this country highly enough as both an awesome tourist and family destination. We love the cultural mix, the food, the stunning attractions and how welcoming everyone is.

In fact, I love visiting this part of the world so much that I returned to university in my thirties and completed an arts degree majoring in Asian Studies. This included studying the Malay language. I visit as much as I can.

We previously worked as full time family travel bloggers but are happier now just focusing on our love of Malaysia, the Philippines, Germany and Tasmania. We work full-time on our sites and always aim to share the most useful information possible.

When we aren’t working on this site or travelling in Malaysia, we concentrate on teaching other bloggers to have success or hang out with our kids at home in Melbourne.

We know how difficult planning travel can be, particularly with a family, so we’re here to help lessen the burden and ensure you have an awesome time in Malaysia.
