Flowers & Other Beautiful Things

We’ve been traveling for almost 10 months, seems shorter than that at times but then Alaska seems a long time ago, even Mexico seems a life time ago. We’re still hoping to be home by early August, haven’t booked our flights yet, waiting on Brendan to...

MACHU PICCHU

MACHU PICCHU – YOU JUST GOTTA GO! Being on the road with three teenagers for a year is not easy, it’s amazing at times, really awful at other times but often it’s tiring and just downright hard. Tear down takes two hours, longer if the kids are tired and...

Travelling with 3 Teenagers – OMG!!

When I began to really believe that this year long trip was actually going to happen it dawned on me (more of a lightning bolt moment really )  that we would all be together 24/7, really together, sitting a few feet from each other every day. Together for breakfast,...

We Made It!

We made it ! Alaska was brief,  very wet and wonderful. It got progressively colder as we went north so we decided to abandon the hike to Anchorage and went instead to Haines, a small town about 5 hours down the coast from Anchorage. It was spectacular scenery all the...
And We’re Off!!!!

And We’re Off!!!!

Brendan says we were 19 days late – I say we left when we were ready – Tynan time I suppose but here we are – 1000 km from home, enjoying the autumn colors in British Columbia and making our way north to Alaska. We loved Whistler, reminded us of Vail or Aspen in...
