Mountains, jungle, dessert, big cities, wine country – there truly is a little bit of everything, and over five weeks, we did […]

Kenya, Africa

Kenya Kenya We spent our last night in Spain packing up our belongings, preparing for two weeks in Africa. Because we were able to find airfare RT to Nairobi from Madrid, we were able to leave a couple of our bags in hotel storage. Heavy bags and bush planes aren’t the greatest combination, rather than […]

Spain & Portugal

Spain & Portugal Spain & Portugal Now five months into our around-the-world family adventure and we’ve finally reached a place that actually feels like another country – the first time not everyone we come in contact with speaks English.

Croatia & Slovenia

Croatia & Slovenia Croatia After the Dolomites, we continued on to Croatia. Instead of flying, we arranged to drop our rental car in Trieste, Italy and arranged for a van transfer into Rovinj.

Three weeks in Uruguay Uruguay Direct flights between Kenya and South America aren’t the easiest flights to find, and when traveling with the little ones, we try our best to not to have 20 or 24 hour travel days. To break up the flight on this particular leg of our journey, we first flew from […]

The Masai Mara

When it comes to wildlife viewing opportunities, especially big cats, there hasn’t been anywhere we’ve visited that compares to the Masai Mara. Exploring the […]
