When opportunity knocks, you grab it. Courtney Adamo is a role model for many mothers around the world. After twelve years in the hustle and bustle of central London, Courtney and her family decided to make a change. They sold their London home, gave up their car and most of their possessions and embarked on a year-long trip around the world. Their travels took them to Byron Bay, an enchanting place that they now call home and where every day feels like it’s been taken straight out of a fairy tale. From London to Byron Bay – She is living the dream!

A Heartfelt Tête-à-Tête with LEMON Magazine
LEMON Magazine: Moving from London to Byron Bay was a big change, can you tell us three benefits and challenges?
Courtney Adamo: Sure! On the positive side, we’ve had more quality time together as a family, we’re in touch with nature, enjoying sunny days and surfing. Life here is easy.
On the other hand, we miss the bold diversity of London, the ease of getting to Paris by train or Italy by plane, and the lack of cultural experiences and museum visits that a big city offers.
Did your trip around the world leave you with any outstanding memories?
Our trip was full of precious memories. It is interesting that our best memories are often made up of unexpected and sometimes difficult experiences. Difficult experiences like the time we discovered a rusty bathtub on our dining table in our Airbnb in Chile or the heart-stopping moment when we came face to face with a bull elephant in Sri Lanka.
… Travelling can be intimidating, especially when travelling with children. Are there any essential items that new parents should bring with them when packing?
Here’s a great tip: Pack only what you really need. Then, after a day, take half of it out. You will be grateful later.
