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

Lessons Learned While Traveling the World as a Family

img_6389
We are two weeks in to this Round The World experience and already we have "learned" so much in the process. How we function as a family, how to school on the road, how to long-haul travel, the uniqueness of different cultural behaviours, different foods and 1,001 new & exciting discoveries have all been added to our repertoire. Under the guise of life lessons mixed with travel experiences, I will list a few that we have already taken note of that will help both the global backpacker and the week long family vacation. Write down where you are staying (on

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

Finding the Edge of Comfortable

Go far
When everything feels icky & squirmy & totally uncertain Mom Says: I was a bulging, sweating, 8 months pregnant hot mess in the middle of one of the hottest heat waves we have ever experienced. My husband will recount to you tales of woe and suffering as he endured the words "I'M UNCOMFORTABLE!!" more times than I care to remember. It has become a standing joke between us, one that is typically accompanied with boohoos and mockery to indicate said Uncomfortablist is being entirely unreasonable. On a happier pregnant day at the cottage The word comfort has been an enemy in so many ways throughout my

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
