Iceland is one of the most intriguing places we’ve ever been. It was unique unto itself, and the culture was fascinating. The way that the people in Iceland honor the land, and the sea, and they way that they celebrate life and respect their ancient beliefs of Norse mythology was compelling to be a part of. We were treated...

When we figured out that Harvard, the Harvard, was only one stop away, the first time we rode the Red Line on the T in Boston, Massachusetts, we knew it was time for our kids first college visit! We were planning on visiting Harvard University while we were in Boston, but seeing the name in print, on the subway...

We unequivocally fell in love with Boston, Massachusetts. This is a city that honors and celebrates its revolutionary past, onward looking towards the future, and respects all those who come to bear witness of what was created here. The Italians in the North End, the Irish in the Back Bay and the American’s have all come together to shed...

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...

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...

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...

We spent two days amongst the areas that were ravaged by the Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima, centered around the Atomic Bomb Dome. We learned about the past and present of nuclear weapons and Japan’s view of world history and World War II as the people there experienced it in real time. As we’ve come to learn through life experience,...
Kyoto Imperial Palace, Emperor, Japan, Kyoto, Traveling with kids, Family Travel, Diapers on a plane, diapersonaplane
For all the hooplah about walking the grounds where the once Emperor of Japan once ruled his kingdom before moving the palace to Tokyo, there sure isn’t much to see. The Kyoto Imperial Palace located in the southern part of the city is nearest to the Imadegawa JR Station. It offers entrance for guests to freely walk the grounds...

It is as if you stepped into Monet painting, still wet from the paintbrush, with droplets of dew from the morning chill, rays of sunshine peeking through the cracks in the trees, and the fish lapping at the surface of the water upon your arrival. This is the Heian Shrine. A Shinto Shrine built in 1895 for the city...
