Death Valley National Park with Kids

Although "Death Valley" doesn't *sound* like the most welcoming place to take your kids on holiday, I assure you - it's quite the opposite. Death Valley National Park can be explored comfortably over a weekend, or even just a single day. We opted for one night inside the park, and one night in Pahrump, the [...]

Sedona with Kids

I've always heard amazing things about Sedona, Arizona, but seeing it in person put a whole new perspective on this place. Sedona decided to really show off in honour of our arrival; we got in just two hours before a major snowstorm hit, and woke up to a magical and snowy winter wonderland. It's fairly [...]

Travel Fails of 2019

I like to look back at all our travels at the end of each year and reflect on all the things that went... well.. not so smoothly. Sometimes it gives me a laugh, but more often than not it's just a reality check that things sometimes almost never go according to plan. We keep our [...]

8 Amazing Weekend Trips from Denver, Colorado

Aspen Distance: 3.5 hours Aspen is a beautiful year-round destination, and only a short drive away from Denver! Although Aspen is famous for its golden Fall foliage and world-class skiing, I think this place is stunning year-round. There are lakes, rivers, bike paths, gondolas, kids areas, tons of hikes and really great food. Read our [...]

Aspen with Kids

We went on a long weekend trip to Aspen, and, for the first time, I had nothing planned except for maybe hiking Maroon Bells and doing some night photography when the kids went to bed. The stars didn't quite align on that second part but I did get my first full night of sleep since [...]

Moab with Kids: Things to Do

We've been to Moab twice now, and still feel like we just barely scratched the surface of this beautiful corner of Utah. This is a roundup of our favourite spots! Arches National Park This is seriously one of the coolest parks we've ever been to in the US, and probably in the world. No wonder [...]

Lima Central: 16 courses at a world class restaurant

We ate at one of the world's top restaurants, and yes, we took photos of everything. Central has consistently ranked in the top 10 best restaurants in the world, coming in 5th and 6th place in 2017 and 2018 respectively. So it only made sense that we check it out in our short 48 hour [...]

A Taste of Peru

With only 48 hours in Peru, we had very little time to waste. So to make the most of it, we made reservations at the fifth best restaurant in the world - Central Restaurant. We don't go to sit-downs often due to conflicting potty/diaper/food/snack/food-throwing/tantrum/socks/nap/etc schedules, so we were really living on the edge here. We [...]
