When is The Best Time to Take a Cruise to Alaska

Not going to lie, a cruise to Alaska wasn't really that high on my list of things I wanted to do in terms of travel experiences. Mostly because I'm always cold and I didn't want to trade my summer months, the only time I know it will be warm in my home area, for unpredictable gloomy weather, something we generally get nine months out of the year! But I was pleasantly surprised and definitely converted after taking a cruise to Alaska from my home port in Seattle. Alaska has some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes, majestic glaciers, and untouched beauty, not to mention abundant wildlife. I can see why a cruise to Alaska is usually high on people's bucket list! That being said, most people have very high expectations for these types of trips, and they want them to be perfect, so I can see why choosing the best time to embark on an Alaskan cruise can be a bit daunting. We are going to dig into a few different factors and look at some pros and cons so you can make an informed decision that will be best for you and your family! Are you ready?



Cultivating Wanderlust: Raising Kids That Love to Travel

When you have kids, one of the greatest gifts parents get to experience is the ability to see a new human discover and experience things for the first time. With travel, you often get that opportunity together! The world is brimming with all kinds of things just waiting to be discovered and explored and giving your children a love for travel can be one of the greatest gifts you can give them. Recently, as my husband and I wandered through a busy airport on a layover on our way home, we saw moms and dads with little ones strapped in front backs, holding hands of kids doing their best to carry their own tiny backpacks, and older ones in a line following behind rolling suitcases with earbuds in place. The thought of travel for a lot of parents can be daunting, but in the midst of all of those challenges, there is an opportunity to nurture a sense of curiosity, resilience, and open-mindedness in your kids that will change their lives. I'm hoping you'll read on so that you can discover how you can raise kids who not only tolerate travel but embrace it and make it their own.
