Instagram Public Photos with #havekidswilltravel

Wait. a. minute. would you look at that... it’s me... in my own feed.
we spent the entire day wandering around stockbridge, through circus lane and around dean village and drank so much hot chocolate. i took so many photos and sharing a whole bunch on my stories because it’s one of my most favourite places in all of edinburgh. ever. and i would spend every weekend there drinking tea and eating pastries 🙌🏻

Simply drinking a cappuccino with a view of the ocean. these kind of peaceful moments makes me even more aware of the freedom i’ve created together with tino and our little girl philou ❤️☺️ what are the moments that you enjoy the most? #befree #peacefulmoments #happyness #dutchnomadfamily | dress @scotch_official

A really wise man (well maybe it wasn’t a man...and actually not that wise...)⁣

said one day: a twirl a day keeps monday blues away...no one ever met him so there really is isn’t any proof he is real but what real here is our thoughts create our life. think positive thoughts for positive results. ⁣


key things to happier you: ⁣

1. gratitude. ⁣
———————-⁣
you know what the antidepressant wellbutrin does? boosts the neurotransmitter dopamine. so does you guessed it! gratitude ⁣

i tried it this morning on my cranky 4 year old who isn’t a morning person - worked like magic! i started thanking for everything we experienced on a sunday and she added her things she is grateful for to my list with a smile and excitement. her mood changed and tears dried out in a flash. who is this happy child and where is my grumpy daughter?😁🤷‍♀️⁣

what makes you happy?⁣

Watching a child’s curiosity is humbling. at some point in our lives, most of us lose that natural born curiosity to see what the world is all about. we settle into what we know, what’s comfortable, what’s easy. many people love that feeling of not needing to worry about anything outside their bubble.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
but that’s not us. we fought hard to push back on the natural path most of society follows, and it took a lot of courage to finally decide to change the way we live over the past 18 months. is it perfect? no. are we happier? yes!
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
when at home base, we live minimally making sure to appreciate everything we have, so that when we’re out exploring the world we can fully embrace the experience by keeping our minds open and fresh. travel teaches you more than you expect and to see how much of the world lives in extreme poverty has opened our eyes and minds even further. seeing how little some people have and how happy they are in life is inspiring us to be appreciative of every single thing we have and every single experience we gain.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
with kids this can be a challenge because for most kids, toys = life and living minimally means liesel might have less toys than her peers (but in reality she has more than she even plays with and most become dusty paper weights). but, she doesn’t even know most kids have more toys. she doesn’t need much except for our love and support, and of course our help dragging this boat out so she can “go find nemo” 😂 so, it’s official. we have a moana in our family 🐠🛶🗿🏝
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
what do you think? should more people be like kids and keep the curiosity alive?
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

How do you lounge? do you have a preferred style? are you a bean bag person? chaise lounge by the pool? towel on the beach? couch for days? locate the most unique looking thing you can find and make it a chair? while you’re contemplating this most important question (😂) be sure to swipe through to see some of the real pretty views from @samaberesort 😍

also, hot off the presses (or laptop 💻) is our blog about our time here at samabe resort in south bali (linked in bio and our our website). and... get ready for it... tomorrow we’re releasing our latest video🎥! stay tuned friends!
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
and to answer our question, we will obviously take any lounging but we kinda like beach bean bags 🤪

Blue lagoon in iceland - beautiful aqua blue water surrounded by immense lava fields is truly an experience you will find nowhere else in the world.⁣

it is one of the 25 wonders of the world, and though it is a touristy spot, it is definitely worth it! children must be 2 years old to visit, and both our daughters had an amazing time floating around (floaties provided).⁣

read more about our visit at blue lagoon and iceland in our new blog post! link in bio 🥰⁣

It seems we’ve made it a yearly tradition to take a family getaway around the holidays, usually somewhere cozy like this little farmhouse we stayed at in oregon last year. the baby is napping and i’m spending a few quiet minutes by the fireplace, wanderlusting and dreaming of all the snowy places. anyone else heading out of town sometime this season? tell me where! travel talk is my love language. 🌲❄️🕯🔑🧦 #letsgosomewhere

Being in nature does wonders to the mind and soul. seeing our overactive little ones take the time to stop and take in the sights at various stops on the beautiful hawaiian islands was one of the many highlights of our time in #hawaii.
this vacation was by far one of highest value yet cheapest #familyvacations thanks to how easy it is to #travelhack to hawaii.

We did it! after 9 months of preparations, we finally did it - we lauched! in true #pnw style, it was raining all day long, but no matter - we are officially members of the #fulltimefamilies rv community!
🙌🏻
we are exhausted and at times we weren’t sure if we’d make it, but we had some pretty awesome friends and family cheering us on and holding us up through the process, and we are so excited to finally be on our way.
🎉
from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for following along and for being a part of our #theroamingpopes story. muah!

I truly never believed that jet lag was real. when people talked about it i thought it was just something they said to describe a long day of travel. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
i flew to portugal once and didn’t sleep a second on the plane. i even took ambien. then i just sat there like a crazy person looking around at all the sleeping people for approximately 8 hours. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
when we landed we took a 5 hour bus ride to our location. my girlfriend slept the entire flight and the entire bus ride. me....still no sleep. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
we dropped off our luggage and went to explore. we ended up being out until 3 am that night. i woke up the next day and no jet lag. ever. the entire trip i was a smiling, happy person. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
same story when i flew home from japan. i think i ended up being awake for two days straight but then i was totally fine. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
once i hit 32 years old things changed. it’s not just metabolism shifts, awful hangovers and wrinkles that hit you in when you pass 30. jet lag is real my friends. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
in spain one time i actually felt sick from jet lag. i was wide awake in the middle of the night feeling like i was getting the flu. nope, just jet lag. now, every time i travel, jet lag hitches a ride in my suitcase. it’s so cruel and unkind. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
we’ve tackled a 3 hour time change in both directions. 3 hours ahead in washington d.c. and 3 hours behind in hawaii. both of them kicked our a***s and i’m not gonna lie, the time change in europe terrifies me. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
it’s silly really because it’s just sleep. who cares? i know the memories we make are always worth any exhaustion that comes with it. i’m just a baby and i love to sleep... more than i think is normal. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
when i’m tired i can 1,000 percent relate to my kids. i just want to sit on the floor and cry. i refuse to travel anywhere with a time change of more than 2 hours if it’s going to be less than a 10 day trip. it honestly takes me...i mean the kids....at least 5 days to function like normal humans. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
tell me the time change from california to europe won’t take us down for more than 5 days. please. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
tell me that the visions i have of my children jumping up and down on their bed at 2 am won’t happen. 📷 2017

Being a mom is the best and hardest thing ever. i was thinking the other day that i can’t believe i ever thought i didn’t want kids in my life. there is no better feeling than having people in your life who think you are the coolest thing ever, and that you can do no wrong. you don’t always get that from adults. 😜
+++
and, if i’m honest, there are also days that i’m like, “who’s idea was it to have children?!” some days are just so hard, exhausting, and mentally taxing! 😩
+++
most days are usually a mixture of both feelings. and in fact, it can change from moment to moment! am i right?! 😂
+++
the best feeling though, is actually seeing your child pick up on what you’re trying to teach them! there is nothing better than seeing those little pieces connect in their brain, and see the joy in their eyes as they gain just a little self confidence each time they learn that new thing! +++
my goal as a mom is to do the best i can to raise my amazing lil boys into wonderful, god-loving men. there’s no guarantee that that will happen no matter how hard i try, and that’s the scary part of parent-hood. but, investing so much time, and pouring in all the love i have, will hopefully aid in my efforts! ♥️
+++
the other day there was a bee 🐝 in our house, and grizzy says to me, “don’t worry mom! i got it!” he proceeds to go to his toy basket, and take out his harry potter wand. he then climbs up on our stool, points his wand right at the bee, and shouts at the top of his lungs, “expecto contronum!!!” +++
i couldn’t stop laughing! close son. so close. 👌🏼
+++
and at the end of the day, it’s moments like that that i will remember, and retell for years to come. those moments make me so thankful that ive been blessed with these boys, and i’ve obviously done an ok job at with their hp education! 😂👌🏼✨

🚨misuse monday: ⁠
expecting lower anchors or locking seatbelts when traveling internationally⁠

📌bottom line: outside of the us and canada, locking seat belts are a rare find. depending on where you are traveling to, lower anchors may not be available either. ⁠ if you are using a car seat that is approved for use in the us, then you need to make sure you know how to lock it in place if you are traveling abroad!⁠

⁉️ why: vehicles are made differently around the world and the car seats manufactured for that country work in their vehicles. ⁠

➡️action: ⁠
☑️ do some research about whether or not cars usually have lower anchors (also called isofix) where you are going.⁠
☑️ if not, then you should either take a locking clip or a car seat that has a built-in seat belt lock-off. ⁠
☑️ you can get a locking clip by contacting the manufacturer of your car seat and asking them to send you one. ⁠some are also shipped with them. ⁠
☑️ you should practice installing your seat with a locking clip before you travel.⁠
☑️ join the wheels up travel course community for a special bonus on international travel must-knows!⁠

Today they pretended it was still summer ☀️ .
the boys are very into marine biology right now so it was a treat to see fisherman with a tuna haul from 100 miles out! 🐟
.
i told chambers that marine biologists had to go to college which meant they had to study reading + math, so now we have a new motivation for english homeschooling 😉🙌🏼 what do your kiddos want to be when they grow up? or what did you want to be until you realized it required some special/long study?

Thank you so much @myhoame and @fairmontroyalyork for the memorable weekend. it was my family’s first time staying at a fairmont and we had such an amazing stay. the room was perfect, the staff was incredibly attentive to our needs and the food in the gold lounge met the needs of even the pickiest little eaters. we especially appreciated the daily updates regarding activities that would entertain the kids. we have never had such a relaxing vacation with the kids before and it was due to the wonderful staff and amenities at the hotel.

These gorgeous little white flowers are white meadowfoam (limnanthes alba), which can be found in wet, grassy areas of hetch hetchy valley. 🌾
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the fruit of the plant is a small nut (called a nutlet) that contains one of the world's most stable vegetable oils. it has been used as a replacement for whale oil in commercial waxes and lubricants, and now it is a popular moisturizing skincare ingredient.

have you ever seen this wildflower on the hike to wapama falls? 🥾

One thing remained un-hackable in our quest to have a reasonably priced thanksgiving... the 6 am flight home.
it happens no matter what. it is like airlines know if you want to get home at a reasonable time on a sunday you shall pay through the nose with 3 connections.
so, we woke at zero dark: 30 and even our bodies knew it was too early for coffee.
i napped 2 different times yesterday. once on the plane and a 3 hour nap when we got home. i've just accepted that travel days are synonymous with scratchy eyelids and angry sinuses and puffy ankles. anyone who tells you otherwise is either a liar or flies on a private jet... which is pretty much the same thing.

What we loved about albania is the vast differences region to region.
.
.
there are so many places to stop off and discover. leaving sarande behind and going back north through albania took us past rolling hills and a myriad of farms.
.
.
everything from sunflowers to olives are being grown. but our favourite were the rose farms!
.
.
the locals were so welcoming allowing us to stop for photos and proudly showing us their flowers.
.
.
charlotte just loved twirling through the farm.

they even ship worldwide, which is perfect for those of us who live far from family members. it’s especially great for family members who aren’t tech savvy and don’t get to follow along on electronic photo sharing (like lukasz’s dad! 😉). ⁣

you can try it and get one month free by entering the promo code bornexplorers .⁣

that’s at least one christmas present we’ve got sorted! 🙌🏼 tell us, have you started your christmas shopping yet?⁣

kiddos are even more susceptible to potential mindless pursuits. our boys love video games and if we’re not careful, they would surely fall into a gaming oblivion. however, they also love outdoor activities (and seem happiest outside), riding their bikes, walking our pup, any new adventure (like paintball!) and on and on. we make it a point to help them experience new things. ⁣

these pictures are from the denver aquarium and we really enjoyed it... but have you ever been to the newport aquarium in kentucky? it was our favorite when we lived in ohio!
.
what's your favorite aquarium, or where should we stay clear of when we travel?
.
we're aware there are zoos and aquariums out there that just don't treat the animals well and we like to be intentional about whom we support. all suggestions are much appreciated!

Day 41. party of four. just add twins. 🤩🤩 this was the babies first trip to the 🏖 . it was their first ✈️ ride, their first 🛳, their first 🏨, and so much more. we were very intentional about deciding to travel with them right away. we wanted to set the tone that the world was friendly and accessible. seven years later, they love traveling as much as us and are such pros! 🧳 🧳 🧳 🧳

Day 4️⃣ - zion national park . there is no doubt anyone can spend a week at the park and hike all trails, but if the time is limited , sacrifices are necessary .
angels landing and zion narrows are the most attractive trails but definitely not with an infant and water temperatures close to freezing 🥶. .
emerald pool trail was a good option but unfortunately it was closed due to rockfall. but the portion of it was opened but had to be accessed from shuttle stop #6.
.
🌌
nice 2 hr hike , heavily trafficked for us, but as we heard not at all i can’t imagine how it looks in summer time....
did you hike emerald pool trail ?

One of my main food goals on this trip to @disneyland was to try at many of the churros as possible, particularly the holiday churros. this has been somewhat difficult due to the fact that a) there's so many other amazing snacks to try and also b) it turns out... apparently i don't really like churros 😕 i mean, they're ok but i have to be in the mood for them and they're so filling that i'm conscious of leaving appropriate tummy space for the rest of the food i want to try. having said that, i have tried a few i really liked and the sugar cookie churro from the cozy cone motel is top of my list so far. we got there right as it opened and had to wait for the churros to be made fresh, but we were more than happy to wait and the warm churro topped with icing and holiday sprinkles was the perfect dessert. there's at least one more i want to try today so i'll report back, but so far this one is my favorite! #disneysnacks #disneyfood #disneyeats #disneylandsnacks #disneylandfood #disneylandeats #disneyblogger #disneyinsta #instadisney

Thanksgiving is around the corner 🦃.
# many of us will be traveling to spend time with our families which means you might be on the go soon.
# my family is in fl so we travel back and forth a couple times a year. here's my top 3 tips for travel with kids.
# 1. travel with your white noise machine to drown out outside noises. bring black lawn trash bags to tape to the windows in the kids room to keep it darker in their room.
# 2. keep routines close to what you do at home so that the routine cues them to sleep. if they have a lovey they sleep with or of they wear a sleep sack, bring it with you so it reminds them of the routine as well as it provides them comfort.
# 3. if your kiddo is in a crib, look at renting a crib from a baby equipment rental site (very affordable and just plain genius!). if you have a preschooler, a b**w up toddler bed is perfect for them.
# have a travel related sleep question or a great travel sleep hack? share 👇

I could never express just how much i love this child. she’s seriously the kindest, most compassionate child. she’s been given the opportunity her entire life to travel and experience all kinds of things. a few weeks ago we told her we would visit santa 🎅🏻 before thanksgiving to avoid the craziness of the mall around the holidays. she began wrestling with something just a little — she didn’t know what she wanted for christmas. 🎄 this went on for a few days and ultimately ended with her saying that she didn’t want anything for christmas because she had everything she needed. 💗💗💗 she told santa there was really nothing she wanted because she couldn’t think of anything. he told her there was still time to let him know. 🥰 it filled my heart so much to know she’s content. when she was younger we frequently discussed where the balance was in her being grateful for the experiences she gets to have or her turning into a spoiled brat. i’m so thankful that she’s gone the first route. 😁
.

i wasn’t going to post this until thanksgiving, but i’m a little impatient. .

If you’re ever in central copenhagen with children, or worse, central copenhagen with children in the rain; i’d highly recommend central library on krystalgade. they are currently renovating their children’s area but there is a good substitute in the meantime on the ground floor, full of books, drawing activities and soft mats. there’s also a cafe and lots of space for them to run off steam away from the hub of tourists outside. i also discovered that @uniqlo_dk has a lego area on their top floor on strøget, which is also handy if one parent (usually me) wants to quickly browse shops while the other entertains the kids. let me know if there are other hidden child-friendly gems in the centre. snacks and songs can only get us so far after all! #copenhagenwithkids

Monday grumps 🌸

going back to work is harrrrd. i actually love my job but 5-ish wake up calls are not my favorite. 😤
.
this girl has always had a strong pout game. of course, taking pictures of her pouting only irritates her more. i should capture the look i get after. 😂 can you believe she can even be mad in paradise? luckily it was short lived and she was back to skipping happily down the beach within 5 minutes. 🥳 hopefully i can muster that rebound following the rude awakening of the alarm clock this morning!

We are deep into the "me do it" phase. from birth, toothless has been a more independent child (well minus the fact that he needed to be in the ergo bounced on an exercise ball to sleep for every single nap). as his colic slowly subsided i noticed that with each physical milestone such as sitting up, crawling, cruising and walking, he became more content.

and now... he's super independent and i feel like i'm going a little 🤪🤪🤪 from zipping his own jacket, to pulling his own milk out of the fridge, to walking up the subway steps on his own... he likes to do it himself and he likes to do it his way.

it's great, it really is. i love seeing him feel a sense of pride and accomplishment from doing something on his own. but, he's definitely kicked it up a notch since being on this trip so... send help, please. 🙋🏻‍♀️ #beingtwoisfine

🏵️as salaam alaikum uzbekistan🏵️

this autumn school holidays we wanted to have some sunny weather and see mind blowing sights. welcome to uzbekistan!

the country opened to tourists only a few years ago and it is still very much an undiscovered  gem. friendly people, delicious food, very budget friendly and filled with history and ancient silk route cities.

i will be taking you on the journey through tashkent, bukhara and samarkand - are you coming?

The four of us 💕 this weekend was exactly what all four of us needed, time together for proper family fun - quality time, us time, reboot time, rest time, relax time, fun time, reconnect time. .
.
it was our first visit to @centerparcsuk. i’ve always wanted to come but part of me wondered if it lives up to the hype that precedes it. well for us it has been everything we could have asked for. i really believe there is something for everyone at every age, even for george who is too little for many of the activities but who absolutely loved swimming. i wasn’t sure if i was ever destined to relax again on holiday with the kids in tow but this weekend hubby and i have properly chilled out. the true sign of a good weekend? we got a picture of the four of us with everyone smiling and looking at the camera!

Today is national hiking day! to honor one of our favorite family pastimes, we’re throwing it back to one of the best hikes we did this summer on our trip to maui - the waihee ridge trail. the trail is known for its beautiful views of the lush green waihee valley below and the deep blue waters of the pacific in the distance. but as fate would have it, when we arrived at the trailhead, thick clouds began to descend over the mountaintops, and before we knew it we were hiking the majority of the 4-mile trail enveloped in thick fog. it wasn’t the views we had originally hoped to see, but it was eerily stunning and unlike anything we’d ever experienced before. as we approached the car, the clouds began to break and we were finally treated to the picturesque landscapes we had longed to see the entire time. what cool experiences have you had while hiking? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

My first tram ride didn’t disappoint. the views at @snowbird are just beautiful, nothing more refreshing than the crisp cool air. and the day wouldn’t be complete without the boys playing in a little snow ❄️ #snowbird #littlecottonwoodcanyon #wasatchmountains #utahvacation #cameronmiles #calvinreilly
