But for us, they seem to work out quite magically. I’m reminded of the hobbits in Lord of the Rings.

The West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island —Three Traveling Families Sharing One Epic Roadtrip New Zealand / Travel

Have I mentioned how much more kids learn when they are exploring the world with their friends? For example, what might be “just another hike” morphs into an exciting adventure with new playmates. “Boring” car drives suddenly shift gears as kids learn the valuable art of car swapping, so they can score a seat next to their friend. Party in the back seat anyone? Playing on...

New Zealand North Island Encounters Education / Family / Food / Friends / New Zealand / Photography

Centrally located near the top of the South Island, Nelson made an excellent home-base for our three-month visit in New Zealand, and we completely luxuriated in the time we spent there. Because the country is quite large and packed full of awesomeness around every corner, we did occasionally venture to other places as well. Our first trip began with a short stay in Auckland on the North Island, to renew Aysia’s passport....

Bali / Personal / Spirituality

Meditation is simple mental focus exercise that can have powerful effects in your daily life. Personally, it’s increased my awareness of the thoughts and emotions I experience and improved my ability to choose how I respond to situations in life, rather than react unconsciously. When I’ve had a consistent practice of meditation, it’s also reduced stress and anxiety, increased my compassion for others, and improved...
