Family Sabbatical to Indonesia, Sydney, Ecuador & Miami

Lateral Life organised a two month sabbatical in the summer of 2013 for my wife, my children (aged 13, 11, 9 and 5) and me.

We travelled to Indonesia, Australia, Ecuador and the US.

In summary they did an amazing job from start to finish.

At the planning stage they struck a good balance between giving us what we wanted and challenging us to consider other options to make this a once in a lifetime experience.

They worked tirelessly to agree a very detailed itinerary and then implemented it very efficiently.

On the trip everything worked like clockwork: we were met by very friendly and knowledgeable guides who treated the family like their own.

Lateral Life also attended to any last minute changes that we wanted or as a result of some amendments to local flight schedules.

They were very attentive to email communication, in short everything I could have hoped for in terms of administration.

The above is really a testimonial about the service and does not begin to do justice to the actual experiences we had, many of which were suggested by the Lateral Life team.

If I was forced to pick highlights I would say that our two jungle experiences in Borneo and the Ecuadorian rainforest stand out just for the sheer contrast to our normal life and for the interaction with nature.

There are many more amazing things we did that Nick and Steve can tell you about, but I would sincerely recommend that you speak to them if you have a sabbatical approaching.
