Guest Post: Gina Baynham

    I first came upon Corey‘s blog in 2007 accidentally as I sat in my kitchen in Australia helping my 7-year-old daughter to research a school project. The link Google brought me to was a story about gold bead necklaces  traditionally gifted to young girls in Marseille to mark special occasions as they grew up. I was captivated. For a brief moment I was unaware of my messy kitchen, the pile of laundry waiting to be done,  and young kids running around asking me to do things for them. I came b...

Guest Post: Sue Johnpeter

  When the blogging universe was exploding into many points of light, I found my way to Corey’s blog. Her touching words and observations kept me coming back. Her story of Chelsea climbing into Sacha’s crib to give him a bottle when Corey was recovering from cancer surgery touched me deeply. An incredible family, a mother with such heart and love.     (Our front porch)   Like many Americans, I am drawn to things French. Unlike many Americans, the reason is that our Dad was a bombardier instruct...

Father's Day

Some of my father's and brothers' motorcycle trophies   It is funny how something comes out of nowhere, and it can remind us of someone, and they are right there beside us. Dad, no matter how far away I am, I always have you in my heart pocket. Memory: I am eight years old and riding in front of my Father on his motorcycle. We are rounding up the cows for milking. My Dad says that I am ready to ride on my own. I grab the throttle, I can feel him smiling. He says yes, you are ready and jumps off...

Are blacks more prone to criminal behaviour?

Before anything I want to answer the question in the subject line of this blog post.  And the answer is NO!!!  Skin pigmetation has no role in determining behaviour, be it criminal or otherwise,  ZERO .   Why did I choose to make the subject line so inflamatory?   I imagine some saw it and felt their blood pressure go up a notch.  Sadly I think others probably saw it and said "Good, here's someone who shares my point of view".   It's this latter group that I'm hoping will read on.  I w...

How to Be a Better Dad When You Travel for Business

Before you have kids, taking business trips is no big deal. When you leave, you don’t have to worry about people missing you. Maybe your wife is a little bummed, but she can handle it. You can hop on a plane and hardly think about home at all. But after children enter the picture, business travel becomes a bit more complicated. Now you’ve got little humans who love you, will cling to your leg as you walk out the door, and don’t really understand why you have to leave. They miss you when...

My Fun Horse Ride in Lajitas, Texas

Today, we’d like to hand over the blog reins to Savannah, our seven year old unicorn and horse lover. She would like to tell you about her special treat while visiting Texas – horse riding in the small town of Lajitas through the stunning mountainous scenery.

The 4 Best Ways to Visit the Panama Canal

As our Uber pulled into the Mira Flores Visitor Center at the Panama Canal, I suddenly had a memory race through my mind. I was transported back to being 13 years old again traveling with my parents for spring break in Florida. We always went to the same little place near Sarasota for the week. But somehow this year I convinced my parents to stop at Disney World on the way home, even though it was out of the way. I knew my Dad had no real interest in Disney World and the never-ending lines. In f...

11 tips for day hiking with children

Studies show that there are endless health benefits to spending time outdoors as children. Getting out in nature, away from TV screens, and into green spaces is essential for a child’s health and development. Being the proactive parent that you are, you put “Paw Patrol” on pause and pack up the family to hit the trails. Suddenly, the idyllic day hike you imagined turns upside down when reality sets in — cranky children having melodramatic meltdowns and making you wonder why you even strapped...

U.S. Culture at its Best: Watching a Boston Red Sox baseball game at Fenway Park

Is a Boston Red Sox baseball game at Fenway Park on your bucket list? I’ve always been a bit ho hum about baseball. I think I may have once fallen asleep once, and I definitely once spent time reading the newspaper at a LA Dodgers game. The only thing that saved baseball for me is the Seventh Inning stretch, and hot dogs and beer. Both of which I can no longer have because of gluten. However, I did enjoy baseball more last year when we went to an iconic Durham Bulls baseball game near our home ...

How to slip into Serenity at Chimney Rock & Lake Lure NC

I feel like my spirit lived in Lake Lure in a previous life. It’s elevated every time I arrive and see the forested green of the pine trees surrounding the lake. Lake Lure sits in the Hickory Nut Gorge, surrounded by lush mountain tops and sheer granite cliffs. In the distance are the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Hickory Nut Gorge with names like Buffalo Head and Sleeping lady. It’s ancient. Timeless. Connected. It’s not long after arriving that I slip into Lake Time. It moves sl...

Best Hikes in the World I’ve Personally Completed

I’m going to tell you a secret, most people who write about travel don’t even travel to the places they are writing about!  I’ve seen many articles on ‘Best Hikes In The World’ which is just your standard round up of popular hikes that someone researched online.  Most of the writers have not actually set foot on all (or any) of those trails.  Until now. I decided to compile a list of the best hikes in the world based only on hikes that I’ve actually completed myself over the last 12 years of tra...

Traveling With Kids: 5 Tips for Staying Safe

Last week I got an email from a subscriber to the RTW 30 Family Edition, our free e-course designed to help families plan a longterm adventure. She was encouraging me to remind people to be careful with kids on the Paris subways. There are pick pockets and the potential for a child to get separated from the family on the platform. Both of those are real risks. Her email got me thinking about the risks that we take with our kids, at home, and abroad, and how we minimize those, or rationalize them...

Five Reasons Parents Should Travel With Their Kids

There are many benefits to family travel. The experiences your children will have on the road will shape them into thoughtful, well-balanced citizens, capable of taking on the world.
