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 …

The Ontario Money Grab

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 …

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 …

Don’t you just love the name Székesfehérvár? It is one of those typical Hungarian names that people who are not Hungarian look at and wonder how on earth it is pronounced.  After a lot of coaching from our new-found family, I can tell you it is pronounced Say-Kesh-Fair-Har-Var. Easy right? Székesfehérvár is less than a one …

One Of Our Best Travel Days Ever

templom2

We specifically chose to come to Hungary because of our ancestry. Or rather, Mike’s ancestry, although I am equally as interested. You see, Mike’s father was in born in Hungary and he immigrated to Canada when he was 25 years old. We were keen to come to Hungary to see where Mike’s father was born …

I have had a bit of a fascination with Parc Guell. Ever since we decided to spend a month in Barcelona I have been seeing pictures of the iconic Gaudi architecture of Parc Guell showing up in my social media feeds. It is easy to feel inspired by fellow family travelers when that is the sort …

On the first Sunday of each month, many of Barcelona’s museums offer free entry. Once we learned this, we knew that our family needed to take advantage of this offer! We decided to see as many museums as we could in a single day. Most of the museums are concentrated around the touristy Gothic District …
