About Us

Hi my name is Kate and I’m the Mum behind Rolling Along With Kids. Our family of four from Victoria, Australia love travelling to Bali. I have been on 8 trips and hubby Jed has been 6 times. Our kids love traveling to Bali too and Charlotte who is 7 years old has been lucky enough to go on 5 trips. I was 18 weeks pregnant with Mason when we visited in 2013, lucky the morning sickness stopped just before we left!! He also has been 3 other times. We have stayed in lots of different places in Bali including Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud, Kuta, Canggu, Jimbaran and Benoa.

Travel with Mason is always a tad tricky due to his Autism as his sense of safety is not great! He loves water and climbing, not a great combination when traveling anywhere but especially Bali. So finding safe accommodation for our family is really important so we can have a relaxing holiday as well. That is one of the main reasons I love doing this blog. It is a lot of work and I have learnt so much but have met so many lovely people along the way!

Something that often surprises people is that I suffered a stroke in October 2016. I share my experience of this life altering event with you in the blog and below you can find the posts I wrote in 2016/2017 about all that happened. I know its not directly related to travel to Bali with kids but hopefully these posts will be an inspiration to how having a passion like travelling to Bali can help.

Hubby Jed is a plumber and has a business in Hamilton, Victoria. We did FIFO (Fly in Fly out) for 5 years including the day that I had my stroke! It worked for our family for that period of time but it is fantastic to have him home. So a quick shout out to his website Hamilton Drain Services and if you are in Victoria and need help with your drains that are constantly blocking up he’s your man.

My wonderful Mum is also no longer with us and is part of my inspiration to start this blog. She passed away November 2011 just 5 days before my 30th birthday, she was 51 years of age. We shared a love of travel, family and animals. She never got the chance to travel with us to Bali but I feel each time I return I am more at peace. A couple of posts to help explain why I started this blog can be found here and here.

So that’s a bit about me, would love to hear more about you! What do you love about Bali, have you never been and what craziness has been part of your life too. Feel free to message me through Facebook or Instagram, I’m usually there ;-) So here’s cheers to enjoying life while appreciating the ups and downs.

    Hi Kate, I’m hoping you can help me please. We are two families travelling together, 4 x adults, 3 x active boys (8 years and under). We are looking for a four bedroom villa with 2 sets of interconnecting rooms or rooms across the hallway if the villa can be locked at night (just like a home in Australia). We don’t want to have to lock our bedroom doors. Our preferred area is Canggu or Jimbaran or anywhere you can suggest. A pool table or table tennis and grass area would be awesome. Also, somewhere within walking distance with kids. Included would need housekeeper, security and chef and breakfast. We would be travelling in September this year and we have missed out on Villa Suar in Seminyak. I know there’s a lot I’m asking for, I’m hoping you can help me out. I’m stuck and I’ve been looking for a couple of weeks. Thanks Lisa

      Hi Lisa,
      Thanks so much for getting in touch with me and let me put my thinking hat on! It would be easier to chat in our Facebook group if you would like to join? This also has other Mum’s and Dad’s that have stayed in Villas too x https://www.facebook.com/groups/rollingalongwithkidsinbali/
