About

What do you get when an Australian-Croatian meets and marries a Peruvian? A lifetime of incredibly long plane journeys with our new little family! My name is Anna, and after 12 years of solo independant backpacking travels I met the man of my dreams, who just happened to come from the other side of the world! Together we have a beautiful little girl named Alessandra, who will surely have a lifetime of long boring plane journeys to learn how to speak Spanish! We have created this blog to record all of Ale’s journeys online, to post some of my old travel journals online, and to show our skeptics that travelling with a baby can be doable. Well, as I write this we haven’t travelled with her yet so hopefully I won’t be eating my words in the future!

    Hi Anna – thanks for stopping by our Clark Family Adventures – we’re headed to Peru soon, looking forward to seeing Machu Pichu and we’ll look out for Lomo Saltado which our chippie lover might even like! We’ll be in Australia a little further down the road. I like your blogs so far and look forward to hearing about your forthcoming adventures with baby daughter! Funnily enough I just discovered yesterday that Columbus’ first stop in 1492 was in the Dominican Republic in my Spanish lesson so enjoyed your blog there! Travelling with kids is very different but amazing to see and experience the world through their eyes.

  3. Thanks for liking my Africa Overland post. I’ve followed your blog and Im looking forward to keeping up with your future adventures.

      Cheers mate! It’s a dream to do a big overland trip one day! Probably not for a while since I’m at home with a baby! Lol

    • I have a similar story, except for the baby πŸ˜‰
      Where did you meet your husband? I met Geo in Paraguay after a 5 year cycle tour through world (Peru and Croatia too, Australia not). Enjoy your travels and each other!
      Greetings Cindy and Geo

    What a wonderful family you have! Baby Ale doesn’t know just how lucky she really is to have a lifetime of adventures ahead of her.

    Boring day on the road, good to find a new post of you! When your next trip to Peru? Ask Rafa to show you the north!

    Ahh, so exciting to “meet” you … I adore Peru (have been there four times), spent a Christmas holiday for 3 weeks in Australia and, just to get the Croatian part in too, I enjoyed that country last summer on a swing through the Balkans and Eastern Europe! You are lucky to have connections to all those wonderful places in the world. (And we traveled with three little ones … it can be crazy but also a lot of fun, and there was no way I was giving up my world wandering.) Happy travels!

  9. How wonderful it is to have such a global family! You’re little one will grow up with adventure always beckoning! Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

    Thanks for visiting our blog, you have a great looking family there!

  11. Good stuff. Enjoyed the Take Me Back to Bryce blog, YES!

  12. Hi Anna – I’ve been meaning to ask, since you mentioned you’d been a solo traveler for some time prior to meeting Mr. R., how you came to decisions to marry and start a family; was it something you were consciously seeking, or did it happen organically? If you feel like sharing I’d love to read about it. Thanks for defying the popular opinion that having adventure and having babies must be exclusive.

    • Anna says:

      Hello! I can write an essay on this topic! Haha. I am dumb at this WordPress thing so I can’t find your email address, so if you give me your email I will share my story. Or shoot me a quick hi email at ahn81@hotmail.com and I’ll write you back there!

    Hi Anna,
    I am glad you stumbled onto my blog. Now I can show yours to all those friends and acquaintances who claim you cannot travel after having children. Well, that is their excuse anyway. Very cool!

    Came looking for a new blog and wound up here. Get on it, kiddo. πŸ˜‰

    • Anna says:

      Hahaha I know I still have Spain to write about from last September and then I’m off to Jordan this Friday. Will have to catch up by Xmas! Lol

    I can’t believe I’ve only just realised that you’re blogging here! Now following and can’t wait to read more πŸ™‚

    • Anna says:

      Haha yeh I have been for years, but don’t really advertise it. Lol. I don’t post much, I’m more of a reader than anything. I love discovering other people’s amazing travel blogs!

    Hi Anna, thanks for the “Like” for my blog post “The Year of the Bullet Journal”. I’m jealous of your traveling life. I love to travel but have not very much. That might be good since when I was in London on business, I panicked on a bus tour and got off to get back to the hotel which I forgot the name of, with only an hour or so to get to the airport. Still can’t believe I made it home! Regards,Clare

    • Anna says:

      Thanks Clare! I enjoyed your Bullet Journal post, I think a lot of us have faded away with it once Covid came. Don’t let your London experience stop you from travelling! London is a big crazy city…. Maybe go somewhere smaller and easier to navigate do you won’t get lost!
