From The Centre To The Sea: Justin & Lauren Trekked Across Australia With A Toddler

In July 2017, Justin and Lauren Jones set off across the desert on a trek that lasted more than a hundred days. The terrain was extreme. The walk was grueling. And they took their toddler Morgan with them. Yes, their toddler. Crazy? Let's find out... They started on the border of Western Australia and the Northern Territory and made their way down to Port Augusta in South Australia. Justin pulled a 280kg trolley filled with nappies and water, while Lauren pulled their daughter Morgan - and tried to stop her climbing out of the cart every 5 minutes. So how do you prepare for this? How do you know where you’re going? What do you eat? How much water do you take? How do you entertain a toddler in a small cart? We asked, and they answered.  CREDITS Host: Holly Wainwright With thanks to: Justin & Lauren Jones - follow them on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/followthejonesys/ Producers: Elissa Ratliff & Rachael Hart  www.mamamia.com.au/cheeky100/ GET IN TOUCH: I Don't Know How She Does It - Travel is a podcast by Mamamia.

How To Travel The World With A Wheelchair

Where do you start when you're planning a holiday that needs to be accessible for a wheelchair? What questions do you need to ask hotels? And how do you make sure you’ll be able to do all the activities you want to? For the past 22 years, Julie Jones and her family have been asking these questions.

Mrs Australia Went From Paddocks to Pageants

Have you ever met a beauty queen that was more at home in a pair of gumboots than her stillettos? Leila Sweeney lives in the tiny country town of Tatyoon, where she's a textile teacher and mum to two kids that she totes around her 3000 acre farm. But when she's not being called 'mum' or 'Mrs Sweeney,' Leila has a very different title. She's also Mrs Australia. But this pageant is not at all about sparkly gowns and bikinis. It's one where this salt of the earth farm girl competed pregnant, in her old wedding dress that she dyed herself. It's a platform she uses to campaign for the big issues that matter to farmers. From educating city folk about where the food comes from, to advocating for mental health in rural communities.  Show notes Your host is Alissa Warren With thanks to Leila SweeneyYou can buy any book mentioned on our podcasts from iBooks at apple.co/mamamia, where you can also subscribe to all our other shows in one place.
