ViewfromVilla
Downtime and Laundry Have Me in Heaven We arrive at our latest place to stay and it feels like we have jumped into a movie set. The view is insanely beautiful. We keep waiting for someone to show up and tell us that we have the wrong house. That we should actually be staying in the garage, not the main villa overlooking the water in a small seaside town on the coast of Greece. It is everything you imagine a greek villa should look like, right down to the whitewashed walls and marble in every room. We have fallen upon this place via

Last Night I Cried…

Not ready to head home from a life-changing trip around the world. Last night I cried. For a person who is quite synonymous with tears, I think my track record over these last many months has been pretty good. There have been only a few crying moments on this trip. Apart from tears of joy. My Happiness is all about being around these majestic animals We knew at the beginning of this adventure that it would change all of us one way or another. Shifted perspectives, maturity/growth in the kids, a deeper understanding of how our world works. What we didn't know was

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 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

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
