We travelled to Moraine Lake in Banff National Park for 5 days over Canada Day and saw the annual parade in the Banff Village. We drove with our two kids for 10 hours, which as you can imagine was LOUD, chaotic but so much fun! It was their first time to Banff so I was so excited to show them one of my favourite places. We stayed at an Airbnb in Cochrane which is about a 45 minute drive from Banff. It was amazing! I highly recommend using Airbnb. It's a bit cheaper than staying right in Banff if you don't mind the drive and we saved by making our own meals. (With picky kids, this helped a lot.)

My wife and I got married back in 2010. After one honeymoon, one appendectomy, and 3 weeks at my parent’s house, we packed up everything and moved to Spain where we resided for the next year.

Living in Spain was always a dream of ours. We studied abroad in Spain while dating and knew we wanted to return one day. My wife started our wedding photography business in 2009, about a year before we left for Spain. When we got confirmation that we’d actually be living abroad for a year, we decided to put the “business” part on hold while we were out of the country.

The thing I love most about Iceland is how accessible nature is. Every time I come here, I camp for a few weeks in the country and get to sleep in some of the most gorgeous places  I've ever seen. Waterfalls, glacial lakes, cliff sides, etc. It's free and looks a hell of a lot better than the inside of a hotel room.

My boyfriend and I made a very last minute decision to book a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean this spring. This was my first time on a cruise ship, so I was both nervous and excited and had no idea what to expect. We sailed Norwegian Escape and stayed in the Haven Suites which gave us access to many amenities that were not open to the rest of the cruisers. The staff were very accommodating and the selection of restaurants, bars, and activities on the ship was fantastic. We even befriended some of the cast members from one of the shows!
