Travel Adventures: Cayman Islands

Travel Adventures: Cayman Islands

This post is a long time coming, but I’m finally getting around to sharing our spring break trip to the Cayman Islands! GENERAL CAYMAN ISLANDS INFO This is actually our second time visiting the Cayman Islands – we came here on our honeymoon in 2015! While we prefer to visit new places, we wanted to travel somewhere over spring break that was a direct flight or one layover, less than six hours, and not insanely expensive. We found good flights to Grand Cayman and remembered enjoying our time there, so decided to go back with the girls! Grand Cayman is the largest of the Cayman […]

6 Amazing Alpine Playgrounds in the Swiss Alps

I  wanted to share some of our favorite playgrounds that we visited during our trip to Switzerland! Allmendhübel “Flower Park”  Details: This was a perfect spot for families — there’s a zip line, slides + swings, tons of climbing structures and ropes, water play, an underground tunnel, a ‘flower labyrinth’ water maze, easy hiking trails, and more, right in the mountains! 🇨🇭 Plus there’s a restaurant where parents can hang out on the patio while kids play! 🛝🌼  More info HERE. How to get there: There are a few ways to get there, but the most efficient (and what we did) was to start at […]

travel adventures: ICELAND!

travel adventures: ICELAND!

My husband recently quit his job (after 8.5 years!) and wanted to travel! And…we pretty spontaneously booked a kid-free trip to Iceland! We’ve heard wonderful things about Iceland from friends (and strangers) but never made it a priority to go. While I know tons of people go to Iceland with kids and love it, it hasn’t been on the top of our family travel bucket list. So this felt like the perfect kid-free destination for us! Now that we’re on the other side of the trip, we’d definitely love to come back with the girls when they are a little older. Anyway, here’s a huge […]

Favorite Waterfalls in South Iceland

Favorite Waterfalls in South Iceland

Seljalandsfoss I feel like I’ll remember our time at Seljalandsfoss forever. We visited right around sunset and I was just amazed at the beauty of this special canyon (including the nearby Glujrabui). The light was perfect and we even saw a rainbow coming out in front of the waterfall – just magic! 🌈 This is a very popular spot and we saw lots of big vans + buses of people, but it seemed to be less busy the later it got in the day. We were bummed we couldn’t hike behind the waterfall (sometimes possible at Seljalandsfoss) but still loved getting to see this waterfall! […]
