Gulf Coast Alabama

We had some very personal reasons to make our way over to Gulf Shores, Alabama 2 weeks ago and they were 7 years in the making.    Across the Caribbean pond from Cartagena, I was eager to check out this part of our country….

All Things Aruba

When we had the chance to take a trip to Aruba sin our Niño’s, believe me, we jumped.   Thanks to wonderful friends who took great care of them, we set off on a worry free long weekend to discover the Caribbean island just…

Medellin: Part 2

After Guatape, we headed into the city for a few days.   The drive in is such a stunning mix of mountains and city scape, and I couldn’t quite get a shot that is really representative of how beautiful it really is from the…

Nomad Christmas: Part 2 – Santa Cruz, CA

Our road trip north was a trial run for an epic national parks road trip I hope to have sometime soon.   Leaving from Malibu, we made our way towards Santa Cruz.   I put together a travel guide for both my kids for…

I really like the idea of a bucket list.  I used to do seasonal goals, (summer, winter, etc.) but haven’t gotten into the habit here since everything felt so new this past year.   Survival was the goal.   Now that we are back…

My Central Oregon Coast Guide

We have spent a lot of time roaming the central Oregon Coast, with all its quirky beach towns and secret hidden gems.  As we are coming to a close on our nearly month-long summer stay here, I thought I would put together a list…

Growing Up Expat: Summer Break

We are continuing our nomad summer up in Oregon and enjoying every minute.   While it is a much needed break for all of us, I am wondering if I am going to get my kids on the plane back to Colombia when the…

Big Island Style

This nomad summer gave us the chance to run off to Hawaii for 5 wonderfully blissful days.  The Big Island of Hawaii was the last of the main islands we had yet to explore and its peaceful vibe and amazing snorkeling lured us right…
