My name is Ivana Katz and for the past 18 years I have been designing websites for passionate entrepreneurs.
Having my own website design business has given me the freedom to travel, explore and and share my adventures on several blogs including Weekend Notes, one of Australia’s most popular websites.
But the time has come for me to build my own adventure website – to share fun things and experiences I have discovered, so you can create more awesome memories with your family and friends – one adventure at a time.
How It All Started …
I moved to Australia with my family at the age of 14 after escaping from then communist Czechoslovakia.
My parents wanted to give my brother and I a better life and so made the bald move to pack up a few suitcases and head over the border to Germany, where we lived as refugees for 8 months, whilst our paperwork for Australia got processed.
Ever since I was young I enjoyed travelling – my first solo trip back to Europe was at the age of 23 and since then I have taken every opportunity to go exploring.
My Little Travel Partner …
When my son Jordan was born in 2001, travel became even more important. I wanted to teach him about life through experiences rather than just books and TV.
I left the corporate world, so I could watch Jordan grow and be there for all the milestones in his life. And that’s when I started my website design business – it gave me the ability to pack up and go at any time.
Being a single parent, money was often tight in the early years, but I made it work and every time I saved a bit, we headed off on another trip.
