Our family has called Utah home for nearly eight years now after living in Oregon for the previous seven. For me personally, Oregon will always be home. I was born and raised there for 18 years, and then Gabriel and I lived there after we got married. We started looking for a new adventure after graduating college. “Anywhere but...

On our family trip to Arches National Park we spent the first day exploring, mouth agape, stopping and starting and staring at all the amazing sculptures our Earth has created. While there is a lot to see from the car, Arches is best experienced on foot. You’ll miss a lot of the more striking views and formations if you...

After spending five days solely at the Gran Caribe All-Inclusive Family Resort, we were ready for something other than virgin margaritas in every possible flavor and swimming 18 hours a day. We decided to rent a car, which was delivered to us at the resort, and travel through the Mexican Riviera. At least as far as we could reasonably...

Across the street from the Granary Burying Ground is Beantown Pub. For some reason, a joke we heard about the pub runs through my head everytime I think about this site: “This is the only place you can get a cold Sam Adams while looking at the cold Sam Adams.” I don’t know that it’s particularly funny, but it’s...

At the top of the hill at Boston Common you can’t miss the New Massachusetts State House with her 23K gold gilded round dome roof. In 1795 Samuel Adams, Paul Revere and William Scollay watched as 15 white horses, one for each state in the Union, pulled the cornerstone up the hill containing a time capsule. It was first...

From the long path leading up to the steep stone staircase this site begs to be examined. We found this beautiful residence on a detour. We had planned two days of touring temples and shrines, having mapped them along a specified route. As we were walking up the street, we couldn’t help but stop due to how intriguing the...

While touring the Kuranda rainforest in Cairns, Australia (post coming soon) we had our first encounter with the DUKW. This is an amphibious vehicle that puts the all terrain, in all terrain. DUKW is not an acronym, like you might think, it’s actually the manufacturer's factory serial letters. This bad boy can cover any swath of land you throw...

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...
