Sex On The Beach: 50 Ways to Be a Lover

IMG_7745
How to Keep Intimacy Alive When Travelling as a Family Back in the day when  you were just a couple, your sex life was hot. SMOKING HOT. Damn right it was. You had time. You had energy. Glasses of wine and late night dinners were THE perfect set up for a little fun between the sheets. It was, in fact, a priority in your life. Then kids came along and BAM! that priority gets taken over by about a dozen others. You try to remember the last time you guys had a real sex session, and you got nothing. Suddenly you are a very sad

How Will You Tell This Story?

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

The Transformation – On Becoming a Butterfly

Learn how to enjoy every transformation
Reflecting on the journey to change is the most valuable part of the process. Walk along the dirt road from Aguas Calientes towards the path up to Machu Picchu and you will discover a Butterfly Sanctuary hidden in the forest. Head down a few stairs and you come across a soft-spoken gentleman behind the bar who offers to take you on a tour of the Mariposa. Follow him through a beaded curtain into a large mesh tent and you arrive into a magical little world of hundreds of butterflies & cocoons. All in different states of Chrysallis. As the guide talks (in Spanish), you can tell he adores &

It’s the Journey…

Sea turtles in the Galapagos
And so ours begins. How to stay present while traveling. Mom Says I wasn't sure how we would approach writing about this adventure. Social media is so engrained in my world (both professionally and personally) that of course I want to share everything with everybody because it's just all so beautiful and so different. We hope to spread the good word about unique places, spaces and experiences that we think you might enjoy. The kids eager to pass on lessons we have learned on the road, taking on the responsibility of sharing information with their class & friends as part of their experience. The

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

Countdown to Departure on our Round the World Trip

Teamwork Couple Climbing Helping Hand
All The Feels Mom Says: People have been asking us often how we feel about our upcoming trip. If truth be told, for the past number of months, my mental image has been one of those windy, twisty, scary-as-f*&K roller coasters. We buckled in for the ride when we decided to do this round the world trip over Christmas holidays last year. Over the past 8 months, through selling our house, having surgery, getting vaccines, connecting deeply with friends, and putting our whole life in storage we have been climbing that trek to the top. A couple of weeks ago, I
