We were under strict instruction to get apricot ice cream whilst in Vienna. My little sister, @ivyrosesutherland had traveled here a while back and could not talk more highly of the apricot ice cream, mission accomplished!
We love all the travel recommendations. It makes traveling with little ones so much easier. I’ve been saving all the places I want to go, in my google maps. It’s made this trip so much easier. Especially traveling with 6 this time, I can map out our day and charter a bit of a course.
Can officially say that the apricot ice cream was amazing and reminds me of the apricot nectar we use to steal out the pantry from mucus apricot chicken stock she kept 😏. Was well worth hunting it down!
Another week, another featured family. Meet the @anordinaryfamilyof5!
🗣️" We are An Ordinary Family of 5, who love to travel around the UK, and sometimes beyond! We advocate getting the kids outdoors for good mental health, for learning and for friendships. We love to search for new adventures and to challenge ourselves along the way.

FAST TRAVEL OR SLOW TRAVEL 🐌 🐇 We are on our 7th week here and it’s crazy how quickly the time flies! ⏰ This is the longest we have been in Costa Rica (5 weeks was the longest before) and it seriously feels like we just got here! ➡️Truth be told, I got sick last time we were here and boy does time slow down when you’re sick! 🤒We also weren’t working so we kinda started itching to get back to work. 🏡 We also had a BIG house and a big mortgage so we were paying for that house in Austin AND paying for our trip. We were staying at each place for about a week so we weren’t getting the monthly discount which makes a HUGE difference. 🙌🏼 So here we are, family of 4, traveling slow, and MAYBE planning our next trip😉 (we kind of have to since we sold our house🤣) What about you? Fast travel or slow travel? Which works best for you? Which do you like better? Do y’all start planning your next trips while you’re traveling? #sunset #costarica#puravida
“Travel. Take the kids. Have fun. Make memories.”
Little ones LOVE to help! And we like to embrace it. Henry is in the camp kitchen making homemade tortillas (not necessarily on the schedule, but we always strive to embrace spontaneous activity). Goes without saying, they were delicious and he was incredibly proud of his accomplishment.
Whatever your child's interest, we can ensure they get an up-close opportunity to learn more. What activity brings your child joy?!
My favorite adventure this year was our trip to Austin and Waco. Entry 19 in the #AugustEyecandy challenge by @lashawnwiltz
Let me be real here though. We had waited 2 hours to eat at Magnolia Table and the kids were grumpy. That changed when we got food and headed to the Silos where they played and had cupcakes. They powered through because this day trip was something that I was looking forward to. We definitely made lemons into lemon cupcakes that day!
Leveraging credit card miles the right way not only offers tremendous flexibility but it also saves you tons of money. Most airlines levy changes/cancellations fees that in many cases exceed the actual cost of the ticket itself.
Some hotels will pass on credit card fees to consumers which combined with resort fees, destination charges, parking fees, taxes add up quickly.
We enjoyed our time in Oahu at the @hyattcentricwaikikibeach so much so we decided on the spur of the moment to return to the island before heading off to Australia.
Because we used our #SWA miles, @hertz points, we didn’t have to worry about additional charges which made our last minute detour all the more fun. #WorldTravelAdventurers

Contemplating a future career as a male supermodel ... 😎🤩 What do you guys think? 🤔 #i 'llneedtobuildupmyonepack
Who else has been to the Painted Cliffs on Maria Island? @tasmania 🇦🇺🎨 Tip: Get there early in the morning. I got there as high tide was coming in so couldn't explore the more patterned sections at the edge 🌊😔

Anyone else remember being a kid and thinking that all your wishes really would come true if you threw a coin into a fountain? If only life was that simple right? 😏
I still believe in magic as an adult 😬 but I also know that in reality dreams take hard work to achieve at times. Sebastian, it took a whole lot of coins, wishes, prayers, hope, faith and magic for my wish ‘of you’ to come true 💙🌈✨💫xx
Farewell, Ubud! We had a most wonderful stay at the beautiful @inangvilla. Every morning the girls would pick their own table and eat their homemade breakfast with their dolls. In the afternoon we were treated with iced tea and a fried banana pastry. The grounds were lush and the people were so kind and warm. We were very lucky to stay at this B&B with fellow travelers participating in a reiki training with @reikitraveler. We met some amazing women and had some connective/psychic interactions that were life changing. I feel so blessed to have had this experience.
On our way to our next and last stop on Bali we HAD to try the famous Luwak Coffee. The girls fell asleep in the car (as usual) so Robert ran in for a quick tasting. Luwak coffee is known to be some of the best coffee (not to mention extremely expensive, among the most expensive in the world). The Luwak (or Civet, a type of weasel) are keenly adept at selecting and eating the best coffee beans. Then they poop then beans out, after which they’re properly processed, roasted and served. The digestive process of the Luwak reduces the acidity of the beans as well, adding to the smoothness of the flavor. We have tried it, and it is pretty darn good. #familygapyear#connectwithpeople#justahdootit#kidswhotravel#ubudbali
Neapolitan ice cream flavour anyone? 🍦
In one of our stopovers during our snow trip, we chanced into this pretty Pink Lake in Dimboola, Victoria. It was around midday when we arrived and the colour blend almost resembles like the Neapolitan ice cream flavour. I haven't really looked into the lake's backstory or what's causing it to achieve that pinkish colour; but like the red sea, it could be the high salt concentration in the water. I'll google more into that later but anyways, I'm just lucky that there's just way to many amazing scenic lookouts and parks everywhere in Australia to contribute to a perfect roadtrip. 🚐🏞

Launching in September...
⬇️What is being fearless mean to you? Comment below! ⬇️
▪️A FREE, non-profit program (thanks to our sponsor @TOMSnl) for young Amsterdam girls aged 9-14.
▪️Our pilot courses starting in September are designed to give the girls the tools and the confidence to discover new passions and share experiences that take them out of their comfort zones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▪️We are giving girls the space to create a lasting change in their communities and in turn, find their voice- directly impacting how she approaches her future
▪️I am one of the Head Coaches for our Mind and Movement lab where over 6 weeks the girls will engage in mindfulness practice alongside movements such as dance, yoga, boxing, and HIIT to name a few.
▪️Throughout they’ll learn that exercise can be more than sport. And that movement can benefit more than just the physical body.
⬇️Know any girls that will benefit from or just enjoy participating in this?⬇️

Žinote tą jausmą, kai nuo pat ryto diena kažkokia keista. Ir be jokios rimtesnės priežasties jautiesi tarsi kokiame paraleliniame pasaulyje? Toks buvo mano/mūsų šeštadienis. Dar tikėjausi, kad pojūčiai “normalizuosis” pasivaikščiojus, bet ne. Priešingai - paklaidžiojimai pievose dar stipriau sujaukė mintis ir pojūčius.
O ar jums dažnai pasitaiko tokių keistų dienų? Man tikrai taip. Kartais pradedu galvoti, kad gal čia tos “nekeistos” dienos labiau “keistos” 😂. .
P.S. Apie pažintį su Ribiškių taku galite paskaityti mūsų tinklalapyje travelingfamilynotes.lt ☺️🤪

Little Bear got his wings today! 🦋 He loved to look at them but having them land on him was a different story.
Little Bug is two...so basically he got to go in arms restrained most of the it 😬 Getting out without any butterfly injuries is always a good goal 🤪
So we haven't officially said anything, some of you know and for those who don't, now is a great time to say...with school starting back and all.
This is our second year of our Homeschool journey with the boys, and it has been one incredible year.
We've learned a lot about each other, being together all the time, the way the boys learn and enjoy learning. We found out that we enjoy learning in different environments and places, especially ones all over the world.
With that being said we have decided to take a leap and upgrade from Homeschool to Worldschool. We are taking some time, maybe a year, maybe more to travel the world, maybe in a bus, maybe in an RV. Were shooting for next year to start but timing is everything.
We are in the process of selling our home and all of our belongings. We're downsizing our life to make memories with the boys while we can! We will be back and forth to Tennessee to take appointments every few months so we aren't leaving permanently. We are so excited for this new adventure and we hope you all will follow us on our journey as I plan on documenting it as we go.
Thanks to our friends @thechianggang@firstname.lastname@example.org & @crazbeaut611 for encouraging, motivating and helping us to take the leap!
Thank you to my sweet friend @mountaingypsyphotography for taking these fun photos for us❤
Nowy przyjaciel 😍 dzieci zachwycone, że kotek przychodzi do nas na nocowanie.. pytacie, jak ze szczepieniami na wściekliznę przy wyjazdach do Tajlandii / do Azji. My nigdy ani siebie, ani dzieci nie szczepilismy na wściekliznę - uznaliśmy, że i tak nie będziemy pozwalać na bliskie kontakty z bezpańskimi zwierzętami. Te kotki to wyjątek, bo są hotelowe. Dobrze pamiętać, że i małpy w Tajlandii, i pieski biegające po plaży to niekoniecznie miłe zwierzaczki do przytulania - mogą być naprawdę nieobliczalne. Jeśli dojdzie do pogryzienia, szczepienie przeciw wściekliźnie można podać po fakcie - pamiętajcie o tym! Warto jednak działać szybko 😊 o tym również znajdziecie info w naszej książce / ebooku. Zawsze staramy się podkreślać, że nawet w raju są zagrożenia, których nie można bagatelizować.. #asiawithkids#thailandwithkids#instakids#kidswhotravel#travelwithkids#kohjumbeachvillas#kohjum#tajlandia#thailand#thaiislands#cats#familytravels
