Growing up in California, we never visited the Caribbean. But now that I’ve discovered the beauty of these islands, it’s my favorite place to visit

This is my first time in Turks & Caicos and I’ve been blown away

It’s easy to see why Grace Bay was voted the #1 beach of 2018 by Trip Advisor

Since we just hit 1,000 followers this is the perfect time to provide 8 fun facts about the @canadian.kids.who.travel family! .
.
🇨🇦
1. Lisa (mom) grew up in the Caribbean. She attended elementary school in The Bahamas and Junior High/High School in the Cayman Islands. 
2. Dustin (dad) grew up in a small rural town in Canada with a population of 5,000 people.
3. Dustin and Lisa met at work. They still work for the same company today and love it! 
4. We collect magnets from all of the destinations that we have traveled to. We have over 50 magnets from our travels. 
5. We love playing board games and have a collection of over 60 board games for both adults and kids. 
6. Like most Canadians, we love watching hockey. Dustin cheers for the Edmonton Oilers and Lisa cheers for the Calgary Flames. 
7. Lisa learned to drive on the left hand side of the road. 
8. Lisa is an extreme planner. She loves planning every minor detail of a vacation months in advance and even uses spreadsheets to record the details. .

Irish Dance Jumping for joy on the super bouncy Spruce Street Suspension Bridge that was built in 1912.  There are so many cool little bridges around San Diego.  Did you know you can actually make an awesome walking tour out of them? .

Have you tried the TG Lounge at Bali Airport? I checked it out last trip and for 330,000rp or around $33aud enjoyed a foot massage, a comfortable chair to relax on, free drinks including water, soft drink, beer and wine (there is supposed to be a limit per person of 3 glasses of alcohol but I didn’t test it out 😉) and food including freshly prepared noodles 🍝 
Kids under 5 are free and there is a shower plus a change table for bubs 😊
I didn’t pre book with @loungebuddy but paid direct at the counter. To find the lounges you walk past duty free once you have cleared immigration and take the stairs or lifts to level 1.

Do your kids enjoy boogie boarding? I think every one of our girls was born have 🧜🏼‍♀️! Any opportunity they get they would like to be in the water 😊 which we don’t mind because we love the water too! -
Kate was the most cautious about trying it out, but once she did it she fell in ❤️❤️! This was on Hilton Head Island, the girls could have done this all day long.

👉🏼👉🏼 Love to hear about your best kids boogie boarding beaches 🤷🏼‍♀️

Here’s an exciting post... the one you’ve all been waiting for... it’s all about laundry! Yay!
_____________________
For all those travelling families (and even those not travelling), washing clothes is one of those tasks that very few people really enjoy (well, apart from my mum, but she’s the exception). When backpacking there are endless places to hand your clothes over and get them returned all clean, dry and folded. The downside is that they likely use nasty chemicals and your clothes come back wrapped in plastic.
_____________________
We try and stay in AirBnBs where possible and they often provide a washing machine, which gives us a chance to us our #ecoegg . We’ve used this at home and throughout our travels and it’s a great alternative to chemicals. It easy to carry around and genuinely cleans the clothes well. Sure, its outer case is plastic but it’s reusable and refillable.

This definitely is not a sponsored post. We just love using it! Well, as much as you can love washing.

Somedays you should just stay in your treehouse and not get out shopping with two kids for a whole day. Bad idea.

It felt so peaceful being on the water. It’s my favourite place to be.
-
I think it is essential that you find that one please that gives you that state of peace.
-
It has been a long time since I felt that. This trip has been so good for me to get reconnected to the important things.

Who else has a place that makes them feel like that? #lakeargylecruises #bestcruiseever

My heart in one photo. Chris and I had a long talk today about where we’re at right now in our lives. 
Three years ago, you’d find us gallivanting the globe, embracing one mind blowing experience after another. Dining with the last known living carver of Mount Rushmore, swimming with hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos, receiving our second degree black belts in Hapkido, hot air ballooning not one, not two, but THREE times. 
I loved our carefree lives of travel and adventure but I yearned for exactly what we have now- a family. And while the downside to having an army of successful friends in the travel industry is sometimes sheer jealousy, I can say with certainty that I’m content with where we are today. 
The baby years go by way too quickly and I don’t want to miss out on any of it. So, the candlelit castle dinners and booze-fueled parties can wait. I’m going to embrace the messy hair and diaper duty (as much as one can) while still taking every opportunity to show our children the world. 
Stay tuned as we embark on our first big international trip as a family of four. Holden and Henley, we can’t wait to introduce you to Korea .

This is probably the closest we will be getting to a pumpkin patch and I’m okay with that.  But seriously, I cannot believe my little boo is eleven months old today!  I’m not ready for next month. Oh my gourd, why does time have to go so fast?! 😭🎃

One of the most unique spa experiences to date >>> the Himalayan Salt Room at Spa Avania @hyattscottsdale ✨.
.
Known as “Halotherapy” it’s a method of inhaling pure, dry, micronized salt air particles. These particles reach deep into the lungs absorbing bacteria and pollutants, providing an anti-inflammatory property. Additional benefits encourage clear skin, enhanced breathing, superior endurance, deeper, more restful sleep and overall wellness.
.
Best when shared with a friend 😘 @charlestonblonde.

When in Rochester I highly recommend you take a cruise down the Erie Canal with Sam Patch Cruises.⠀
⠀
The Sam Patch Cruise is on board a replica of an 1800 packet boat, and the 90 minute cruise takes you on the route of early settlers, showcasing the canals beauty, environment and historical worth in making Rochester one of the first ‘boomtowns’ in the region. Enjoy a leisurely journey whilst listening to the on board narrative, filling you in on the historical facts and events along the route.⠀
⠀
Perhaps the most interesting part of the cruise is traveling through Lock 32 a century old lock.  I’d never seen anything like this and was amazed at how the canal filled up with water so we could pass through.  I also just loved observing the life along the canal, seeing stunning homes and gorgeous parklands.⠀
⠀
Have you ever been through a lock before?  I'm guessing there are in many other parts of the world - but this was a first for me.⠀

Pretty excited to have @joellashotchicken open just up the road! It’s always nice to have more family-friendly options (with parking) in Midtown Indianapolis. The back deck is a sweet bonus! Do you like spicy food or are you a little bit of a wuss like me? (I recommend nothing hotter than Ella’s Favorite unless you have a fire 🔥 tongue like me husband)

Visiting Szechenyi Thermal Bath in Budapest was one of our highlights. Prior to visiting this city, I had no idea Budapest was known as the City of Baths! The baths are medicinal and Szechenyi is the most popular one as its is housed in a Neo Baroque building built in the 19th century. Anyone been?

So many people ask us,

So many people ask us, "How do you do this?"...they are talking about how we manage to live on a boat, travel full time and not work. (I know many people probably think we are trust funders or sell something illegal). Trav wrote a really honest blog post about how we've made it happen. To quote my husband, "My goal is to encourage people, not come off as an arrogant prick who lives on a boat and doesn't work." We wanted to share the financial realities of our traveling life because quite honestly, it's more attainable than you think, especially if you are willing to take the risk to live in the now. We don't have all the answers, but we know what worked for us, and here's our story. #newblogpost , link in bio 💙 . . . #familytravelblogger #livingonthecheap #sailingbudget #sailinglife #honeststorytelling #ifwecandoitsocanyou #ourstory #howwedidit #grateful #travelingfamily #travelstoke #traveladdict #lessismore #livinglargeinasmallspace #makeithappen #livethestoryyouwantotell #love #livinginthenow #adventuretogether #travelwithchildren #notimelikenow #moxiefamilyadventures

These two are the best people I know! They are funny and they are kind. KIND yes KIND. There is nothing we need more than kindness in this world. They are best friends and make me smile everyday, 6 years ago while I was travelling solo around Australia I would have never believed you if you’d told me today I was going to be married to the best man and be the mother to this marvellous being! Life is crazy

What’s the funniest or most random question you got asked by a child?
.
.
Let us explain:
.
.
So you know how children ask 400+ questions per day 🙄
Well this picture illustrates a couple of the many many questions, we, as travel companions and parents, got asked:
CAN THE MANNEQUINS SEE US? 
ARE THEY IN A MIRROR?
.
.
So we’re like “Find your own way to find out” ... and this moment happened!
He decided to jump and asked his dad to join!
.
.
He then came up with the following conclusion: maybe they were sleeping because it was already dark 🤣🤣

Part of Paint Mines in Calhan, Colorado reminded me of a natural playground from my childhood. A place where I liked to play with my siblings and friends until we covered with clay. A place where I got stuck in the mud clay up to my waist and finally free after the sun disappeared from the horizon. It's just too sad to see the company put a tall wired fence between the subdivision and that playground. Now the playground is disappeared forever behind a tall fence and bamboo forests.

Have you ever visited a place that brought you back to your happy times many many years ago? .

So Jumieges Abbey knocked our socks off! The kids thought they were visiting a castle but these are actually ruins of one of the most important monasteries. Victor Hugo described as 'the most perfect ruin in France' and you can see why. The scale is incredible (small child for size 😂) and the white limestone still has huge impact. There's a 3D app but kids were happy to explore the ruin and grounds without it. We finished up with a climb of a massively steep hill, challenging each other to escape the mowed labyrinth, and a game of giant chess. More pictures on stories 👆#normandynow #jumieges #visitrouen

There's a 3D app but kids were happy to explore the ruin and grounds without it. We finished up with a climb of a massively steep hill, challenging each other to escape the mowed labyrinth, and a game of giant chess. More pictures on stories 👆#normandynow #jumieges #visitrouen

I was haunting for this signpost for the last 7 days :)) And finally, when I’d spotted, apparently the most famous one, the sky was all covered in heavy clouds😖 If the sky was as clear as yesterday, then we would be able to see, all covered in wonderful snow, Tongariro summits right in the background 🤔____________________________________
Polowałam na ten znak od tygodnia i gdy w końcu go wypatrzyłam niebo było całe zasnute chmurami :( Gdyby nie one w tle widzielibyśmy magicznie ośnieżone szczyty wulkaniczne Tongariro. 🌋 🌋  _____________________________________
Przy okazji wyobraźcie sobie tylko mój krzyk rozrywający beztroską ciszę jazdy: Arek, stój! Kiwi!!!!’ i Arka gwałtowne hamowanie 8-metrowym kamperem 🙉🙈🙉 Faktem jest, że przez ostatnie dni zwykle jeździmy po nowozelandzkich drogach nocą (ciemno robi się już o 17:30, plus 100 km to tu się nie jedzie godzinkę tylko dwie godzinki z uwagi na pagórkowatość zawijasową dróg) i masę kiwi oraz oposów uciekających przed światłami kampera widzieliśmy, więc autentycznie trzeba się pilnować :) #kiwi #newzealand #nationalemblem #tongariro #familytravelblogger #blogpodrozniczy #beautifulplanett #podróżemałeiduże #travellingfamily  #nowazelandia #newzealandpics #spring #cloudy #zdzieckiemwpodróży #roadtrip

I took a cooking class in Tuscany and this was the view from the villa. It was amazing!! And I now know how to make fresh pasta and the best dessert you ever tasted. If you’re in the Arezzo area look up Cristina e il drago, you won’t regret it! .

#ad When you travel, do you bring your own stroller or rent at your destination?
.
We typically bring our own, but on our recent trip to @legolandcalifornia, we decided to rent one in the park.
.
This was such a smart decision!
.
We were able to get this double stroller for $17 as soon as we entered the park.
.
It was easy for the kids to climb in and out of throughout the day.
.
I'm all for making life easy at theme parks!

My little human is full of adventure. ❤️ I think I FINALLY want to start our blog and share more of our crazy/adventurous trips with a toddler (oh yes, you can do them!), Life, Clover’s World, More of Me (Ari), Clover’s dress-up, etc etc etc. Should I?!? I’m so hesitant because I’m constantly overthinking everything, but I feel like I’m ready. Yay?! Ps- one of my favorite photos from our trip. We slept in a Yurt; it was quite chilly, I spotted a spider (and freaked, thankfully Erik saved the day. I’m sure there were MANY more I didn’t see. 😜), but it was so magical. Even more Magical that Clover thought it was beyond rad! ✨

😍That smile😍
.
This little one was a surprise addition to our traveling tribe, and she might just be the best surprise ever .

She already has such an adventurous spirit! .

As we move toward full-time travel, I wonder what our life and relationships will look like in year. I imagine we'll see lots of new places, meet tons of new people, and grow together each and every day .

She'll be a totally different kid in year. They grow up so fast! It's exciting and overwhelming to think about, that's for sure #fulltimefamily #rvlife #rvliving #toddlertravel #familytravel .

Still Fall? 🍁Just Checking! ---
It’s getting colder this week and finally it feels like proper Fall, but there's also like a vague threat we might just skip Fall and move into Winter. ❄️ I'm going to try and enjoy some real and virtual Leaf Peeping 👀 while we still can! But I'm also breaking out the sweaters, scarves, and mulled wine just in case! 🍷 And I have a reserve of warm beach pics in case of emergency! 😜

Now that the weather in Florida is FINALLY starting to cool (hello, 70s and 80s 👋🏻), we’re flipping the switch and on countdown mode for full-on sunshine, swimsuits and sunnies!
🏝
This time next week Chris and I will be on board @halcruises invited by @oprahmagazine to enjoy an amazing itinerary including three island ports... and the beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico is one! #AD #omaginsiders #omagonhal #omaginsider
🚢
It’ll be just about 15 years since our Caribbean honeymoon cruise, and a PERFECT second honeymoon, with places that have been on our bucket list!
🏖
So... to all my Puerto Rican friends, I need your help! We get to spend a whole day in San Juan!! I’m ready to soak it all in, eat lots amazing food, see some sights through my camera lens and enjoy a beautiful beach, what do you recommend?!

Hey guys meet Kiwi, our little 17 foot camper.  Last week we spent a few days exploring Zion National Park in southern Utah as a little family of 3.  The trip was a little over shadowed by my miscarriage which started our first morning at the park but we did our best to make the trip enjoyable.  It was an 8 hour drive both ways and it was a little chillier than it was here in the Valley of the Sun.  Moving out West was something I have always wanted to do and being only a few hours away from some of the most beautiful places in the country has been amazing.  Keep an eye out for some more photos we captured in the beautiful park and the blog post about visiting Zion with a 17 month old! ⠀

Becoming a mom changed my perspective on self-love and confidence. 💕 Do you practice positive affirmations? ⭐️ On the blog today, I am sharing 3 tips on raising a STRONG GIRL by using positive affirmations in support of the #ipinkican initiative. 🤟🏼💪🏼❤️
.
All October long, @Stage is celebrating “her” and raising awareness & money for Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). 🤩 For every #ipinkican moment shared with the hashtag, Stage will donate $1.00 to support BCRF.
.
If you guys aren’t familiar with our story, both my parents have dedicated their careers to breast cancer research. 💞In fact, it’s the reason we moved across the world from China, to Germany to Houston in pursuit of their life long research goals. Every time I see our community rally together to support this life saving cause, I think of the hours my parents spent working hard on a cure and the how excited my dad would get when he had a research breakthrough. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

T U E S D A Y • 2 3 / 1 0
When we woke this morning it was a little overcast so we decided to visit Chania. The hotel has a shuttle bus and it was only half an hour away. The Venetian Port area is beautiful and we hope to return and try out one of the boat trips. It was lovely walking around and seeing all the brightly coloured buildings and stopping for a traditional snack of fennel pie - which you can see in my insta stories. The water was so clear we could see lots of tiny crabs and fish which kept the boys amused.Plus there was plenty of souvenir shops and a market to look around. Needless to say we now have the obligatory fridge magnets.

Horse back riding on the beach ✔️✔️✔️ Something I’ve wanted to do ever since I saw the Narnia movie over a decade ago! 😄🐎🌊
//
At the north end of South Padre Island lies miles & miles of preserved land with rolling dunes and sweeping views of both the gulf & the bay. We trotted along on a trail ride this morning that made for quite the adventure! (I even lost my cowgirl hat at one point!🤠) but it was an experience I now want to do over & over again! No way am I waiting another decade to horseback ride on the beach again! 😉 #texasbestbeach #texascowgirl #texasmonthly #southpadreisland #lonestarlgtravels #myspiexperience

Today we’ve been to the Grotte Di Castellana Caves which are said to have started forming 90 million years ago. There are two routes you can take, one is 1km (50 minutes) and the other 3kms (roughly two hours with a guide). Unless you’ve got kids under five, I’d definitely recommend the latter as you get to see all 12 caves including the white cave which is said to be one of the best in the world. It’s breathtaking. There’s no photography permitted inside the caves but let me tell you the stalactites, stalagmites, curtains and columns have to be seen to be believed. After our Grotte Di Castellana adventure, we headed to Alberobello (about ten minutes drive away) for a late lunch and a mooch. Known for its whitewashed stone huts with conical roofs, this unique town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s a great place to wander around especially I’d imagine at this time of year when there are less people about. There’s more on Stories if you fancy a nose.

#Relaxation 🙈🙉🙊our new routine is absorbing this word.

We are all about great routines and this is one we will gladly embrace, now that our lives are being lived for the day. 
This month is about catching 🦋a new rythme, noticing more, and spending time together.

Kids drag us into their World School 🕵️‍♂️with endless questions 🦎and on a quest to discover. 
They all carry their magnifying glasses and Oliver keeps making ✍🏻notes and writes down questions.

This school is much more pleasant than I had imagined 😅 and all goes smooth. 
Today was less noise and more sound, less need and more have, less tomorrow and more today. A good day.

See the chicken 🐔?

✨ Heading to Chicago or want to visit the Chicago Theater? Contact me for a free family friendly itinerary! ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The @Chicagotheatre, originally known as the Balaban and Katz Chicago Theatre, is a landmark theater located on North State Street in the Loop area of Chicago, Illinois. The theater was built in 1921.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
_⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During its first 40 years of operation, the Chicago Theatre presented premiere films and live entertainment. One of its biggest draws was live jazz. So much so that jazz bands became a staple of the Chicago Theatre's programming through the 1920s and into the 1930s. As of 2018, the Chicago theaters hosts everything from plays and musicals to concerts and comedy shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of the most important things to my son whenever we stay at a hotel on vacation is how big the pool is. This kid loves being in water. So now imagine a resort where the pool is a giant indoor water park, with every type of water slide and kid-friendly water feature you can think of, that’s clean and safe and even has eco-friendly features. That, my friends, is @greatwolflodge!
.
There’s Project Green Wolf, their resort-wide recycling program. Compostable plates and cups at the quick service locations. Organic, non-GMO, antibiotic-free, and allergy-friendly menu options. Just to name a few. Read all about this fun family resort and its green features in my new blog post (cut & paste or link in bio): https://ecofriendlymama.com/sustainable-family-fun-at-great-wolf-lodge/

Have you been to a Great Wolf Lodge? They’ve got 17 locations across the US. I’d love to know where you’ve stayed in the comments! 🌙🐺😎

🤭 FEELING JEALOUS 🤭

When you’re not feeling well, it’s like everything is too much.
And living in a campervan with 2 active toddlers doesn’t really help! 🤣 When those 2 toddlers aren’t feeling well themselves.... 🙈🙉🤪. You get the picture right? 
When one of our kids is feeling sick, which hardly ever happens (‘knock on wood’ 🙏),😊 it’s difficult but ok. I feel for them and love to help them getting well. In our experience it are those days after being sick, the ‘getting better but still not feeling a 100% days’ that are the worst!

We went to Tomar, there’s this great spot for the night here, an old ‘inactive’ campsite! It sounded like a good spot to recover a bit. Parked between lovely trees and on grass, all very relaxed & quiet, super! But when we put the kids in a little bathtub (which they usaully love) it didn’t go so smooth. Playing together was also difficult today😬. And then, while arguing with my screaming kids, trying to ‘not let them talk so loud’, from the corner of my eye I see all the ‘pensionado’ (= retired) couples sitting next to their campervans, drinking a glass of wine and reading a book. Or TALKING to eachother 😲 and being able to listen to what the other one has to say! OMG! 😮

I really LOVE traveling with our kids and wouldn’t want it any other way but on days like this I feel so tired and jealous!

Anyone recognizes this feeling sometimes?

Luckily Tomar is on a short walking distance from this campsite. A little toy aircraft and some coffee made everybody happy again. 😊

Tomar looks great. We are going to explore it better tomorrow! 😊 When we are all happy campers again 😜😜

Did you know there are tuk-tuks in Africa too? ..
..
We used them every day whilst living in India and never thought we'd get to use them in #Mozambique. Very handy for when the Land Rover is all parked up with roof tents up and you just want to get out an explore, rather than pack everything up again.
