Making the Commitment to Family Travel

When people ask me how our family is able to travel the world with our two children AND keep a home base, my answer is, “We DECIDED to.” Yes, that sounds quaint. And of course, it is an oversimplification of an entire process. But I find, as in most things in life, once you make …

Ok, I’m going to go on a bit of a rant here about Ontario. Well, not a super harsh rant, cause I’m an extremely kind person. But I gotta say that Ontario really turned us off. I know I talk about money a lot on this blog and how our family tries to maximize our …

The Journey East

“Where are we going today?” Ask the kids. “East!” We reply. We’ve been pushing hard since Manitoba. We spent a few lovely days visiting family in Winnipeg and then made a straight shot to Ontario. Ontario is BIG. So BIG! And we had a bunch of friends and family to visit along the way. We’ve done …

Breezing through Saskatchewan


Before we left on our journey, we became members of Harvest Hosts, which is a really cool membership program for RVers. Farms, wineries, breweries, and businesses can list their properties on the website and then members can request to camp overnight on their properties. Camping is free but it is expected that you will purchase …

Exploring The Rockies


We LOVED the Rockies. From the time we first saw them in the East Kootenays to the time we left them in Jasper we were in awe. No wonder millions of people come to these towering, snow-capped mountains each year. We explored Kootenay National Park, Banff National Park, and Jasper National Park which all border …

numbers-money-calculating-calculation (1)

Our family of four spent the fall of 2017 in the beautiful city of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We scrapped our original plan of spending four weeks there, as we fell in love with the city and ended up extending our trip to nine weeks. We would have stayed longer if we did not …
