We have dreamt of going camping for so long but have never actually taken the plunge. This year, we are changing up the travel game in our life. Our next road trip will have taken the legendary road trip to a completely different level—internationally.
As we travel the Alaska Highway, we plan on camping in several remarkable stops along the way. There are sites unbeknownst to us that await us on the other side of the country and we just cannot wait to get there! We will be crossing international lines as we head over to Alaska through the borders of Canada. Just in case you’re thinking that we’re crazy, we already know that. Everybody has been telling us as we’ve been unraveling the truth about this years remaining travel plans. Read More
For this month’s Travel Tip Thursday, my wife and I have come together to build The Ultimate Beach Packing List. Getting to our destination location and realizing we forgot something very important is over. That’s a super freaking bummer when you don’t have your sunscreen or your sun hat. The worst was when I forgot a pair of back up leggings. I am obsessed with leggings and cannot forget them at all. If I do, ugh, I will be a very sad puppy. How could you forgo that situation? Learn to pack like us! Read More
As a sign language interpreter on the move, I worked a lot with Royal Caribbean and other cruise lines to provide interpreting services for those traveling. It was an amazing experience while it lasted. I made a decision down the line that it was important to work on my life and my family. Because of this, I stepped aside from my business world travels being consistent to being sporadic. Most assuredly so, if I’m on a business trip you can bet your money on it that my wife will be with me. This makes it easier to run our businesses and keep our goals on track! Unfortunately, this meant no more work cruises for me because I can’t take her with me on a cruise. Read More
Do you love to travel? How can you afford to travel and live life at the same time? Do you feel like you cannot get around to it enough? Is it possible to travel for long periods of time without life falling off balance? How to Travel to Europe for Less than $1,000?
I get asked SO many questions all the time about how my family and I are able to travel so often without blowing all of our money away. As many of you may know, we just recently bought our first home. Right before we left on our one-week escapade to Italy when we traveled via road trip throughout all of Tuscany, actually. We basically lead a double life, a very transparent one at that. Everyone who knows us personally knows we are travel junkies while longing to be a homesteader at the same time. We are stuck between traveling the world and running our businesses from home, our own home—FINALLY! Read More
We filled up this bad boy we call the pink and green with all sorts of goodies and necessities to solve any problem while on the road. Years ago, my cousin Lala, who works at Nordstrom, got these for us: one for her and one for me. We always called it the pink and green. We filled it up with make up and random purse fillers. Over time, the pink and green got dirty, very dirty. I watched it several times but it ended up put away in a drawer for years.
Through the move earlier this year, it ended up stored inside of an ottoman. As soon as The Legendary Road Trip came into play, we knew we had to pull out the pink and green and fill it up with natural and healthy first aid solutions. There lie many ideas and it was then that the Stellar First-Aid Kit was born.
In the last few months, we have begun to replace the medicines from our medical cabinet with pure essential oils. You read right: replace. There is no better medicine out there in the world then pure essential oils. I know I probably sound like a commercial right now, but; I’m serious! I used to laugh every time I saw him one of those posts on Instagram talking about selling essential oils. I thought it was silly to spend so much money on oils because I did not realize the healing properties that they carry. Although I do not sell them, I do whole heartedly believe in them. Read More
