Toronto With A Toddler

Toronto With A Toddler

So aside from our fun excursion to Niagara Falls, Ariel, Jacob, and I, have been hanging out all around Toronto. This trip is actually a big step for our little family, because this is the first time the three of us are truly on an adventure on our own. When we went to Jamaica, the whole idea was that we would be utilizing the incredible personalized nanny service at the resort we stayed at. Our 2 week trip to Israel…

Exploring Niagara Falls On The 4th Of July With A Little Guy

Exploring Niagara Falls On The 4th Of July With A Little Guy

For a change of pace this year, we decided to spend July 4th outside the US. Ariel had never been to Niagara Falls and had always wanted to go. Plus Jacob is still little enough that he gets to do a lot of stuff for free. Anything tourism-related in the USA on Independence Day tends to be zoo, and besides none of us were really feeling extra patriotic this year. So we decided to fly up to Toronto and head…

Adventure In Bermuda: More Than Just Beaches

Adventure In Bermuda: More Than Just Beaches

Most people go to Bermuda for the beaches and the resorts. Most people are wrong. Bermuda does have a lot of really beautiful beaches, including some really unique spots that have crazy rock formations that you don’t usually see on a Caribbean island resort (because it…isn’t that). The resorts are also really beautiful, and luxurious. So if you REALLY want to do the resort thing, you can definitely do that. But if you’re more in the mood for adventure, well…

Back To Our Roots In Bermuda

Back To Our Roots In Bermuda

For the first time since we’ve been married, Ariel and I were free for the entire week of our anniversary. It’s been a long time since we were able to really get away on our own. For years we’ve been talking about going to Bermuda, but each time we were going to go we ended up choosing somewhere less expensive. However, since we had Jacob, our time away is limited by our ability to get a set of grandparents to…

A More Complicated Adventure

A More Complicated Adventure

As I write this in Tel Aviv, Israel we are actually wrapping up a pretty epic adventure. We’ve been here for just under two weeks with Jacob – his first transatlantic trip (although not his first overseas trip!) – and our first major trip since our Alaska babymoon. It had been my intention to blog regularly during our time here, but unfortunately we ran into a few roadblocks. Traveling with a baby is always complicated, and often there are unforeseen…

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim Because it was grassy and wanted wear, Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves…

Here We Go… Again…

Here We Go… Again…

Hi, I’m Jacob. I’m four months and 10 days old. Back in February of 2017 my dad started this blog about adventure travel because *he knew I was only about 11 months away from being born. Now I’m almost four and a half months and figured it was time for my own first adventure. So I managed to convince my parents to let me into their little travel party and take me with them to Jamaica. I was a pretty…

Hobbiton: A Review

Hobbiton: A Review

One of the highlights of our trip to Middle Earth (I mean New Zealand) was definitely our tour of Hobbiton. If you’re reading this, then it’s pretty likely that you already know that when Peter Jackson rebuilt the the Shire for The Hobbit films, it was done in a way that was intended to be permanent. If you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings – even if you only read the books – this is really a…

Finding Edoras (AKA Mount Sunday In New Zealand)

Finding Edoras (AKA Mount Sunday In New Zealand)

As the days go down in the West, behind the hills and into shadow, I’m going to be reflecting (i.e. catching up) on some of Ariel and mine favorite travel memories from our adventures. I figured I’d start with what is probably our favorite hike together of all time, finding the filming location for Edoras from the Two Towers. Right off the bat, know that you do NOT need to be a Lord of the Rings nerd to appreciate this…

A Bear In Ketichikan, The Inside Passage And Vancouver

A Bear In Ketichikan, The Inside Passage And Vancouver

Well, this is almost it. We are now at our final stop before making the long journey home to New Jersey. Looking back on this trip, the definite highlights were Denali and the humpback whale watching trip in Icy Strait Point. But the last few days have had their moments. First we stopped in Ketchikan, Alaska which is apparently the salmon capital of the world. It was pretty clear why this is – every year thousands (or maybe tens of…
