A letter to my girls

This week, of all our time together on this journey, I have felt most proud of you. My heart is full with love and admiration and I’m feeling a bunch of emotions.  Most present is a weird happy/sad feeling that’s manifesting in lots of tears, so I decided to write down my thoughts to help me understand what I’m feeling and to share it with you.

Tales from Tulum

We did a bit of research and discovered that on the day of the eclipse, 21st August, by complete coincidence, we were booked into a hotel…

The Rockies

This could be quite a short post really.  The Rockies are incredible! I asked Keith to write this with me and he suggested I write: “I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a two week holiday to come and do what we’ve just done”.  I then reminded him we were writing a blog not a formal letter and that perhaps we could describe a bit about our experience and what…
