5 Favorite Pieces of Travel Gear

I like to travel light, and typically only bring along carry-on luggage (in fact, we each only travel with one piece of carry-on luggage and a small backpack). Because of this, I’m especially careful about any new purchases. If I buy something new, it usually means I have to get rid of something else. But these are five unconventional items that I’ve found useful while...

5 Tips for Overcoming Travel Burnout

Summary Have you ever had a favorite food that you ate too much of, or had the same leftovers too many days in a row, and then you didn’t want to eat it again for months? That can happen with travel, too. We’ve been traveling as a family for seven years now. We’ve had amazing life changing experiences and met incredible people. But we’ve also...

Highlights of 2015

Another incredible year has passed! In 2015, we visited 7 countries, spent time with extended family, made many new friends, and found ourselves gradually integrating experiences and letting go of thoughts that have been holding us back for years. It hasn’t always been easy. We’ve had physical, emotional, and relationship challenges. We’ve felt tired, anxious, overwhelmed, and bored. But we’ve worked through it and learned...

Staying Sane in the City: Family-Friendly Tips for NYC

If I had to describe Manhattan in one word, it would be “energetic”. This intense place is buzzing with activity and excitement. Mammoth skyscrapers, throngs of diverse individuals, flashy advertisements, and the noise and smells of a big city. During our ten day trip there, we found ourselves feeling awed and engaged, but also exhausted and overwhelmed. It was a bit surreal to visit landmarks we’d heard and seen in countless movies, stories, and music...

Having taken tens of thousands of photos, I can see how my skill has improved with time. And while I...

To all the Mormons – I’m Sorry

It’s hard to know what to say when starting an apology. But I’m feeling a kind of tugging sorrow in my heart for the pain I’ve caused my LDS family and friends, and likely many others I’ve never met. If you feel you’ve been affected negatively by something I’ve written, said, or done over the years, then please accept my sincere apology. This post is...

Living Your Life Purpose

“It’s messing people up, this social pressure to ‘find your passion’ and ‘know what it is you want to do’. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This...

Fun with Music

We’ve really enjoyed having a couple months to settle here in Victoria, BC. One thing we’ve all appreciated having more time for is music. The day after we arrived, I rented a piano keyboard from a local music store, and finished putting out recordings of some new pieces I started writing back in Bali. These involve piano, as well as my voice, and other ambient sounds. Have a listen below,...
