Dad Says: While it looks like long term travel is all things glamorous, there comes a time in anyone's journey where you hit a wall. Overnight buses, on-going negotiations, laundry, sourcing points of interest, booking, writing, researching, relaying information, schooling and continuous movement means you start recognizing the need for a break from the trip you are on.

Cloud Nine – How Airlines Across The World Have Treated Our Special Needs Son

Kid in front of Virgin Airlines
If you were to meet our son anywhere on our world trip, the first thing you would likely hear is "Hi, my name is Spencer. I really love airplanes. Can I tell you about them?" It's a script we have worked on to explain his deep passion with planes while helping him practice the social cues of conversation. You see, Spencer has Autism. While Autism carries a breadth of different behaviours, a common trait is fixating on a particular subject matter that can often nears obsession.

Number One Rule To Travel : Don’t Be a Dick

IMG_6639
When what you do represents so much more than you. It's a strange view from here. We sit in the middle of two worlds. A no man's land of sorts. Learning and experiencing travel on the road while still being able to stay in touch with the goings on at home. Most of the time it's great. But sometimes, not so much.

We have the benefit of not being barraged with bad news all the time except when the only thing on Facebook is bad news. When we go

Top Tips to a Fun Winter Weekend Getaway in Quebec City

Circa 1884 slide near Chateau Frontenac
Good food, Great friends, Best destination We love our kids. Honest. Now, that said, many moons ago we discovered that one of the best way to rejuvenate from the ongoing pull of parenthood is getting together with old friends or going on our own to explore a new city. We know from heading often to Mount Ste. Anne that nothing quite matches Quebec City in wintertime. Sure, going during Winter Carnival is an absolute blast. For parents wanting to get away, going outside of Winter Carnival alleviates the crowds and still allows you to experience Quebec City at its finest. It's a beautiful

How Will You Tell This Story?

IMG_2596
Our WHY Behind Travelling the World Every story has a back story and it's not always pretty. I never really considered ourselves storytellers until this trip. Sure, Chris and I like to talk in stories. It's fun and entertaining and most importantly gets people laughing by the end. Something for us that is ultimately the end goal. Now my grandmother. She's a storyteller. In fact, she was the best storyteller of us all. My grandmother was most indeed the matriarch of our family. The older sister and the "second mom" to a large family growing up in the prairies. She was given the job
