We knew it would be an adventure to travel for Christmas, especially through two different climates and with a suitcase full of Christmas presents, but we didn’t quite anticipate everything that could go wrong, would go wrong. On our first leg of the trip from Salt Lake City, Utah to Galveston, Texas one of our bags of luggage was...

Renting your Home on Airbnb: Part 1 Renting Your Home on Airbnb: Part 2 How To Prepare Your Home For Guests After we completed our listing on Airbnb (check out part 1), and constantly getting emails from Airbnb suggesting we lower our price to less than a hotel, it took just shy of 2 weeks to get our first booking. We opted...
Arches National Park, Utah, Delicate Arch, Diapersonaplane, Diapers On A Plane, Traveling with Kids, Family Travel
Arches National Park is an incredible natural wonderland full of more than 2,000 natural made arches. The arches are formed from differing types of sandstone rock, created as a result of cracks weakened by weather and erosion slowly crumbling away until only the strongest rock layers remain. This place looks like God reached his hand down to Earth and...

The Japanese have a wildly different interpretation of how many people can comfortably stay in any place of residence, and what size towel is appropriate for drying off after showering. If you want a genuine cultural experience, sleeping in 4 bunk beds in an apartment the size of a walk-in closet, this is the Tokyo airbnb for you. Honestly,...

Having never been to Japan, choosing a place to stay was a daunting task. Typically I spend weeks, or months, depending on how spur of the minute trip it is, researching the place we are going. I attack it from a historical perspective, and a cultural one, including figuring out all the top attractions and things to do (post...

This was our first airbnb experience in Japan, and to be fair to our host, we did not give this place a fair shake. We were far too critical, and didn’t understand the luxury we were fortunate enough to have at this Hiroshima airbnb with full size standard beds, full size towels, and a normal hot shower. ► Ranking: #cleandiaper,...

After chasing down the Northern Lights unsuccessfully in Iceland four years ago, this unfulfilled dream of ours has never left the forefront of our thoughts. When we read that Tromsø was the one place on Earth where the Northern Lights appeared more than anywhere else in the world, Norway soared to the top of our adventure list. We immediately...

Our home state of Utah is a treasure trove of National Parks, and we’ve worked hard to visit them all throughout the years. It’s so interesting to consider that people from all over the world travel to our home state for a holiday, and here we are just itching to go see the rest of the world. Despite our...

Across town, in the opposite direction of the graffiti and promiscuous pictures was where we found our home for Christmas. This darling airbnb, with red cupboards in the kitchen and four single beds laying side by side each other in the bedroom, was perfect for our celebrations. Though we longed to be in Tromsø, we were finally in a...
