Who are Flashpacker Family?
Wife, mother and blogger-in-chief. Born in New Zealand, Bethaney has been travelling since her early 20s and loves exotic and adventurous destinations as well as the world’s busy and bustling super cities. Her travels have mostly been solo trips flashpacking in South East Asia or weekends away in Europe during her three years spent working and living in London. A reformed vegetarian, she now loves exploring markets and eating street food. As chasing a toddler takes up most of her day, she doesn’t really have hobbies but likes to sneak off to the occasional hot yoga class and wishes she could sew & knit. She has been to 22 countries and five states in the USA and with the goal of visiting 100 countries before the age of 40. Read on for more about Bethaney and her travels.
Lee is a self-made internet marketer with a commerce degree. He was a contestant on the New Zealand version of the reality show “The Apprentice”. He has a love of travel, more so in the Western world, having been to America about 30 times. He was born in England which gave him an opportunity to see much of Europe at an early age. He moved to New Zealand at 16. As an avid snowboarder, he particularly loves cold climates and mountain ranges. He is also practices Kung Fu.

Number one son. Born in New Zealand, Reuben is currently three years old. He is an intense and active child who loves to swim, run, dance and explore. He’ll eat anything if it’s served with rice and loves spicy food. In his downtime he loves art and painting. He has travelled to New Zealand, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia and four states in the USA.
