SEA T0 SUMMIT HIKE – Looking for an amazing hike near Vancouver this summer? The Sea to Summit hike takes your from the base of the Sea to Sky gondola in Squamish, through a beautiful forest, past rushing waterfalls and up to a beautiful viewpoint over Howe Sound. This intermediate-difficult hike takes 3-4 hours and dogs are allowed on the trail. Once at the top, you can enjoy more trails, check out the suspension bridge or relax on the patio. If you choose to take the gondola back down (highly recommended for the view alone), it is $20pp or dog. #squamish #whistler #vancouver

SILVERSTAR MOUNTAIN RESORT – I have always referred to our family as “ski tourists” as we love exploring new mountain terrain. SilverStar Mountain Resort, however, is one of the exceptions. We have been visiting for almost 40 years! Isn’t that crazy? We have so many beautiful family memories on her slopes! Want to see why we love it there so much?

BC WINTER ROAD TRIP - We simply love a good family winter road trip. For this adventure, we are driving from Vancouver to Rossland for several days of skiing @redresort. (Why Red? For the great snow and because we are ski tourists. We love to try new places!) With winter driving conditions, we are breaking up the drive with an overnight in the Okanagan. (Truth - it is also an excuse to finally have the chance to stay and dine at the lovely @naramatainn.) Do you love winter adventures like we do? Feel free to follow along in our stories! #explorebc #explorecanada . . . . . . #britishcolumbia #bc #beautifuldestinations #beautifulbritishcolumbia #roadtrip #winterroadtrip #skitrip #rossland #canadatrip #canada🇨🇦 #canadatravel #skibc #powderhighway #getoutside #kootenays

MO’OREA, FRENCH POLYNESIA - ✨NEW POST!✨! Check out our complete guide to visiting the island of Mo’orea, – just a quick ferry ride from French Polynesia’s main island of Tahiti. In this post, I want to share with you the idea that French Polynesia is not just those enormously pricey over the water bungalows on Bora Bora (as lovely as they are). You can have a much less expensive trip to French Polynesia by instead visiting the easily accessible island of Mo’orea. And I’m going to let you in on a little secret…Mo’orea often comes out on top as the "visitors’ favourite" for travelers who have completed an island-hopping French Polynesia itinerary (that includes Bora Bora). With a a new direct flight from Seattle (also LAX, SFO & HNL) it has also never been easier! Let me try to convince you to give this beautiful island in the South Pacific a go!

PURCELL MOUNTAIN LODGE, BC – We have just returned from the most extraordinary late summer hiking adventure! If you love the outdoors, the backcountry alpine hiking experience at Purcell Mountain Lodge is definitely one for the bucket list! The adventure begins with a stunning 15 minute helicopter ride from Golden, B.C. (90 min. drive from Banff/ 3hrs from Calgary) where you are quickly whisked to the lodge at 2200m. What follows is several incredible days of hikes with an ACMG certified guide at your side showing you just the most stunning Purcell Mountain Range scenery (a self-guided option is also available). The cozy lodge has everything you need (including indoor plumbing and hot water – quite a rarity in the backcountry) as well as a very talented chef serving up the finest of fare all day long. If you are looking for a truly special Canadian Rocky Mountains adventure, definitely take a look at this one. (Link to full blog post in my bio.) The high alpine hiking experience at Purcell Lodge runs from June into the early fall. Be sure to book early if you would like to be there for the peak of summer, as July to mid-August is also the very popular wildflower season when the alpine meadows simply explode with colour. Oh yes…and we saw a grizzly bear in the wild! It was truly one of the most amazing (and exciting) things I have ever experienced on my travels! (See my IG stories/highlight for more.) Note: While we loved meeting fellow adventurers while staying at the lodge, it can also be fully booked out for small groups and for special events (such as weddings). #hosted #purcellmountainlodge #goldenbc #explorebc

GOLDEN, BC - Although we first fell in love with Golden for its epic ski resort (@kickinghorsemtn ), it is a true year-round destination for the outdoor enthusiast (mountain biking, hiking, whitewater rafting, kayaking +++).

Hotel Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo – A Luxury Machu Picchu Hotel

If a beautiful, luxury hotel, for a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Machu Picchu is what you seek, be sure to consider the Hotel Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo. Other than Machu Picchu itself (clearly hard to compete with), this very special Aguas Calientes hotel was one of the most memorable parts of our family trip to Peru. even have a discussion about Peru without someone saying “Remember that amazing hotel?” Tucked into the mountainside on the edge of town, the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel is a very quiet and serene property. Returning to the hotel, guests can enjoy a relaxing visit to the pool, a soak in the hot tub or book a massage at the beautiful Una Spa.

8 Things to do with Kids South Wales Guide – Family Holiday in Wales

When a Norway trip had us routing through London’s Gatwick Airport, we decided to tack on a few extra days to enjoy a little family holiday in South Wales as well. Until visiting, I really had a hard time getting my head around how large Brecon Beacons National Park actually is. The National Showcaves Centre for Wales clearly targets families with young children (10 and under) and to be perfectly fair, I know that my kids at 5 and 8 would have loved the experience. Families visiting Wales with children of all ages may be interested in visiting the Red Kite Feeding Station in Brecon Beacons (daily afternoon feedings, cash only).

Packing List for Galapagos Travel – The Perfect Galapagos Packing List

When packing for Galapagos travel you will want to make sure that you have brought along the right camera equipment and accessories for both land and under-water photography. Quick-Dry Travel Clothing – Bring clothing made ideally of lightweight quick-dry synthetic fabrics, lightweight cotton, or linen (including quick dry socks). We purchased Teva sandals which were pretty good for hopping in and out of dinghies and onto islands (wet landings), but perhaps the most sensible shoes are closed-toe waterproof hiking sandals because they are better for walking on sharp lava rock. She has the full brim lightweight nylon hat, the long sleeve shirt with venting, quick dry pants, closed-toe hiking sandals and what I think is a waterproof backpack.
