Caz and Craig (short)
Caz and Craig Makepeace want to live in a world where people fearlessly follow what’s in their heart and embrace travel as more than just a two-week annual thing.

The whole family (fun one)
Caz and Craig have two children, Kalyra, 7 and Savannah, 3. Both girls’ were named because of our love of travel and freedom and both have similar meanings: a wild and pleasant place.
Craig complains he’s surrounded by three women, but Caz feels she has it much worse surrounded by three Virgos. The fam loves the outdoors, craves adventure, are sports mad and can’t ignore a good festival or farmer’s market. If there’s a hammock nearby, they’ll fight over who has swinging rights.
They’re travel addicts. Caz and Craig clock up over 20 years of world travel and the girls were born with backpacks and passports. They’re on a mission to prove that travel does not have to stop once you have kids – and that kids make some pretty fearless and fun travel companions.
Kalyra is a princess who dreams of attending fashion school in Paris. Savannah our fussy wild one, is most likely to excel at hotel escapes and in the sporting arena, like her father, who once played professional rugby league.
Craig’s the rock, keen on order and attention to detail and refuses to resign from his role of Master Beer Taster. And Caz is just the flighty Libran, fluffing around bringing harmony to the family through crystals, meditation, and downward dogs. (and the odd glass of wine at 5pm)
