Eat like a local in Monterey, California

When we move to a new city everything is new and it can be a little challenging to find the "real" local places. We normally don't find our "spots" until 6 months in. Lucky for us, this is our 2nd round of Monterey and we pretty much know all the ends and outs of this area! With all the friends that we have moving here next month, I thought I would sha[...]

Home is where my family is

Hello! I've been super silent as this move from Slovenia, back to The United States has been hard! I'm super use to moving... this is my 8th move in 8 years, but what about killed me this time was the amount of time our stuff took to get to Slovenia (74 days) we got our stuff and our home in Slovenia felt like home FINALLY!  Just to pack it all ba[...]

Budapest, Hungary

When we travel with our children we try to do things that are educational, and fun with our children. Tyler loves to go to museums and tends to do these things while the children are napping during the day. During the day while the children are up we try to do things as a family that we would all enjoy! Budapest, Hungary made this very very easy! [...]

Bratislava, Slovakia

We made a quick stop in Bratislava, Slovakia on our way from Vienna, Austria to Budapest, Hungary. We were told not to stay the night in Bratislava as it was a small, boring town! I wish now I would not have listened to them, and I wish we would have stayed the night! I did not expect to fall in love with this city, and enjoy myself as much as I d[...]

Why My Kids Love Vienna

Last month we were lucky enough to travel to Vienna, Austria. I honestly wasn't too excited to visit Vienna, I'm not the type of "traveler" that enjoys seeing things that every American comes to Europe to see. (Make sense?) I like to be the person telling the stories of the "unknown land" I guess that's one reason why I loved Bosnia so much, it's not a[...]

Salzburg, Austria 1 Day with Kids!

Wolfgang Mozart and The Sound of Music are some of the first things I thought of when we decided we wanted to visit Salzburg. I, however, had no idea at how beautiful the city would be too. I loved seeing all the history, and walking the same streets that Mozart walked down... what a surreal experience to look at a building, and see a street and know[...]

Garmisch, Germany

The boys and I left on Thursday (last week) to head up to Germany and pick up Tyler and head out on our week long adventure to the northern European countries above Slovenia. (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary) I thought I would do this adventure a little different and write a blog post about each city and country that we visited. (It's a lot of info[...]
