A few weeks ago we went on a short family holiday with our friends to Taupo, New Zealand. As you all know, when you travel with kids, you tend to take A LOT of stuff with you. It seems to be that the smaller the child is, the bigger their bag!

Arriving at the airport at 6:30 in the morning is tough... doing it with two kids in tow is madness! Boy, were we glad that we had a buggy to keep two year old Lexie in check!
Returning to Melbourne from New Zealand, it was back to having no family around and Mark often away for five days at a time for work. This meant essentially leaving Bruno and I to wing it solo. While gaining a huge appreciation for single parents out there, I also started to fully appreciate the freedom and ability to train that the terrain gave me. Cue: ultra-marathon no longer at the back of our minds but eyes now lingering over the entry button.
Our little mascot (Bruno) arrived by speed train late October 2013. Having been very lucky with a smooth and natural delivery, it was not long before I was out and about with him in my terrain .
For me, buying a buggy was like buying a car or a bike: I needed one that suited my needs of living an active outdoor-lifestyle. For example, if you're a keen skier you generally need a car that has 4WD; if you're a mountain biker you need a mountain bike vs. if you're a triathlete you generally need a time trial bike (okay, let's be honest, there's a few needs there that should be replaced with wants, but you get the idea).
When choosing a buggy for my second baby I wanted to get something stylish yet practical. This time round I wanted something that didn't just simply serve a purpose; it had to meet my needs in functionality and suit my lifestyle, but also have style. I wanted something that I could push around with pride...
When my best friend invited me to be her bridesmaid, and my 21-month old daughter Camillia as her flower girl, there were bursts of excitement! Not only will we be seeing each other again after several years (in none other than Vegas), but it was also the perfect excuse to tell Hubby that I needed that NEW travel stroller - the one that I've been eyeing since it was first revealed in last year's Baby expo!
If you're an avid reader of our blog, you'll know that one of our nano test pilots recently took nano on a tour of New Zealand's South Island - covering 3000km in just 3 weeks - complete with two pre-school children. Here's the final instalment in their epic adventure!
