Our Big Summer Adventure: Fiji, Australia and a USA Road Trip

Summer break has been and gone and we’re back into the full swing of the school year. Our big Summer adventure is still on my mind though and I have a ton of fun stuff to share with you.

If you’re following along on Instagram you will likely have already seen a few of my favorite moments from our Summer break trip to Australia and Fiji. Today I’m sharing all of the fun! Well, maybe not quite all of it because we were away for an entire month. More of a highlight post with a run down of all the places we went. I’ll be sharing more in-depth posts about some of our bigger adventures in the future.

Our Summer adventure was a pretty big one with two international destinations and a Western USA roadtrip. We started with a two day drive from Colorado to Los Angeles, flew to Fiji, spent five days soaking up all the tropical island vibes before flying on to our home city of Adelaide in South Australia, took a road trip to Melbourne, road tripped back to Adelaide, spent a few weeks catching up with friends and family, flew back to Los Angeles, and then spent three days driving back to Colorado with a stop over in Las Vegas. As you can imagine, we were exhausted by the time we got home. I bet you’re tired just reading that, right?!

This post is going to be a long one, so get comfortable and prepare for the onslaught of photos! Let’s go…

Travel Gut Health with Bio-Kult

Disclaimer: I received this product for free from Moms Meet (www.momsmeet.com) to use and share my honest opinions.  

You know I'm a big fan of traveling, right?

Well, there's one aspect of travel that I'm not so much a fan of. Well, maybe a few things - unpacking and doing all the washing when we get home is never fun, and sometimes the costs involved are a little eek. But that's not what I'm talking about here. I'm talking about the toll that travel takes on my gut.

Yep - I'm talking about guts!

Most of us who love travel know all about "Bali Belly" and the risks involved in drinking tap water in certain destinations, but what I'm talking about is the havoc eating out for every single meal takes on gut health. Now, I'm not going to lie - I love eating out at restaurants when we travel. It's a great way to try local cuisines, the food is generally pretty yummy, and it's certainly a nice break from having to cook dinner every night at home. But there's often a reason that restaurant food tastes so much better than the food we make at home - and that's ingredients like butter, oil and salt. If you've ever watched a tv cooking show with professional chefs you'll know that a chef's idea of "a little" oil seems rather excessive compared to what most of us use at home. Plus, of course, there are often ingredients that our stomachs simply aren’t used to when we travel to a new country. And all of the extra treats that we tend to find ourselves eating when we travel!


So, how do I avoid dreaded gut issues when on the road? Keep reading for my top tips!

Colorado Railroad Museum

All aboard!

Do you have a train lover in your family? Or maybe a history buff? Or perhaps kids who love climbing on things, pressing buttons and playing pretend?  If so, this post is for you!

Recently the kids and I visited Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden and it was such a fun day out. Now, my kids aren’t really the biggest train fans (there was no Thomas the Tank phase in our house) but they sure do love climbing, pressing buttons, pulling levers and playing pretend, so they had an absolute blast visiting the museum.

Located just a short drive from downtown Golden, Colorado Railroad Museum is the perfect place for a day out. Visitors will find dozens of locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses on display over the 15 acre rail yard, a replica 1800s depot museum complete with a massive HO scale model, a working roundhouse and turntable, a garden rail yard, a library, and, the highlight, train rides.

20+ Best Places to View the Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge.

There's just something special about that international orange span across San Francisco's Golden Gate that pulls at the heart strings. 

Like the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, or Sydney Harbour Bridge, it's one of those landmarks that I will never tire of seeing, no matter how many times I see it. And trust me, we saw it a LOT in our eight years in the Bay Area as we had a view over the Bay from our Berkeley apartment. Every single day the sight of the towers peeking out over the fog made my heart flutter.

I know that this is a pretty common reaction for a lot of people, especially if you're seeing the Golden Gate Bridge for the first time, so today I'm sharing some of my favorite places to catch a glimpse of the bridge.
