Why We Are Visiting Places That Will Likely Disappear In Our Lifetime

if-you-could-pick-3-places-to-travel-in-the-world-where-would-you-go-2
The Many Faces of Travel When we finally made the decision to take this trip around the world, a big part of the planning process became "where do we want to go?" Each family member was given a choice of 3 priority destinations that would fulfill a lifelong dream of theirs. If you could pick 3 places to travel in the world, where would you go? Our loose, plan not to plan itinerary is to see the world in all its glory. Yet we realized that many of the places we wanted to see are also ones that are being threatened

Why National Geographic Is To Blame For All Of This

Charles Darwin Science Station
& How we are using Nat Geo as our best tool on the road One of the most vivid, core memories I have as a child is running down the hallway of my grandparents house. Their dark blue, psychedelic carpet and powder blue bathroom sink stamped forever in my brain. As my cousins and I play hide and go seek, I head to my favourite place to hide. A waist-high closet you had to crawl up in to at the end of the hall. As I pop open the closet door, a secret world reveals itself to me. Stacks upon stacks of yellow

Who ARE MomDadCuppaKids?

Who are Mom Dad Cuppa Kids
We can all agree there is so so much noise on the internet. For us, its really important that we don't want this blog to add to the clutter. We want it to be fun, informative, open, and genuine. As we get closer towards to leaving on our #CuppaRTW: Round The World Adventures, we've been thinking a lot on how to bring fresh & new ideas here. Our hopes are that we can help inspire people one way or another and we do believe we can do it ways that will truly provide value. But we realized first and foremost that you might not really know

I am Feeling the World.

World love
Mom Says: I am stuck. Dozens of blog posts sit unpublished. Friends have checked in to see what's wrong given how "quiet" I have become on social media. I haven't felt much like talking lately. There is more than enough dialogue out there. Social media has taken its toll. I am worn down. The shouting, screaming, threats, complaining, and rants rage mixed against the stream of selfies, outfit of the days, food porn, product shots and a continued run of superficial moments feel wrong. So wrong. On one hand, the world is strife with so much anger, sadness, hurt and heartache and on the

My #LifeReady Moment means the world

My #LifeReady Moment means the world
The comforter is warm and cozy and as I wake up to the sweet sounds of the Cowboy Junkies I look over to see the angel faces of both my children snuggled up beside me. My children. There is so much love and so much responsibility that go with those words. I often wonder how I possibly have kids when at times I still feel like a kid myself. I remember growing up thinking how very much my parents had it together in how they planned for everything. Planning for a trip, planning house moves, planning for their retirement and for our

Almost There! #WalkForSickKids

spencer the early years 006
I lie down beside my little guy, stroking his hair as he drifts off to sleep. All I can think about is how grateful and how blessed we are. Life has shown us this year how quickly it can change. When you least expect it one moment can make all the difference. Going when we did to Sick Kids was a major part of our son's successful recovery. We are so jazzed to be taking our whole family (& our family dog) on the #WalkForSickKids this Saturday, September 26th! We're so close and would love your help in getting us to
