We had to cut our trip short because we all got sick. @moonmountainman drove 17 hours strait to get us home. It wasn’t in our plans but this is how it goes sometimes. For the past few days I’ve been recovering from this cold and sinuses, and on top of that processing terrible news we came back to. It almost feels like every time I get back in service and check the news there is something bad. As much as I want to run into the wilderness, homeschool our child and just ignore all the bad stuff happening in the world I can’t simply ignore it. I feel a part of a society, and my desire to do something makes me often feel helpless. And I honestly don’t know what to do about it. All I know is that traveling to beautiful peaceful places makes me happy, and I wish that everyone could experience it. Sorry for this kinda sad post today but this is how I feel today. What cheers you up on days like this? I might go rewatch some episodes of Parks & Rec again .#mounttaranaki

What a unique and spectacular place! I originally wanted to go to Havasupai in April for Zoey’s birthday but it was hard to get a reservation for that month. Luckily there were some dates open in February and we could also make it there during those dates. The weather in February is not as stable and we indeed had a little bit of a cloudy/moody weather but it was still very beautiful. Also, the campground was almost empty compared to what it is during high season. I am glad we were able to make it there this year. I would like to come back when Zoey is older so that she can have her own memories. @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor @moonmountainman #havasupai

I took this shot couple of weeks ago in New Zealand before we flew back home to WA. It's been rainy and moody weather pretty much for the past few weeks. So I decided that it would be nice to chase some sun and be able to wear sandals. We are going on a road trip to Havasupai in Arizona  It's going to be a long road trip, and we gonna miss traveling in a van like we did in NZ. But I am really excited about this trip. ️ Have you been to #havasupai ?

Simple little moments in life are often treasured the most.
This is back in August on the Kintla-Bowman lake hike in Glacier National Park when Zoey was just over two months old. Now she is nine months and crawling all over the place. #adventurefamily @moonmountainman

Nature is beautiful. It is simple and complex at the same time. One flower doesn't compete with another, it just blooms. Nature doesn't worry about a makeover or being trendy. Yet the majority of people still find it beautiful. At least I hope that they do. What about the human beauty? What does the majority find beautiful? I hope that my daughter is not going to worry about that. I hope that she can learn from being in the nature. I hope that she can learn that she is beautiful as she is in every season of her life. I hope that she can know and accept herself. The world is crazy but at least we still have wild places in nature to remind us of what is truly beautiful. Comment what are three most beautiful things/places/people you've seen in your life?

I am always more hungry when backpacking than when I am at home. I try to keep snacks accessible because I also tend to get 'hangry' and become really grumpy. It is often my driving power to get to the camp because I know when I get there I will get some food. 🤦‍️I know, I have some problems. Anyone else have the same issues?#takemebackpacking #goodtogo @moonmountainman

Sometimes we feel that to see amazing and beautiful places it is necessary to travel to a different country and we often end up neglecting beautiful places that are not far from home. When I was in my 20s I lived in Italy for five years. Once I left Italy I realized that I didn't use that opportunity as much as I should have, and that there were so many places I wanted to see there. I learned my lesson. I try to explore the area where I live as much as I can now. It's been rainy and moody here in WA but we really enjoyed this little hike. I am glad I finally got to see this beautiful waterfall. #palousefalls #pnwonderland @moonmountainman

It was amazing to experience #vanlife during our he two months we spent in New Zealand. It was really nice to Park our little home in the most beautiful places and just kick back. We had a bed that folds into a couch but we kept it as a bed pretty much for the entire time so that Zoey had a place to hang out. It became her play pan and she learned how to crawl on it. It is crazy how you really can get used to little space and having only few things. Now we want to buy a van here in US. Any recommendations on vans? Would like to find one that gets decent gas mileage. #adventurefamily #homeonwheels @moonmountainman

I am reminded why I enjoy outdoors when I am back home. Don't get me wrong cause I like being at home too. But when I am back home it's often hard to relax for me. I suddenly have an endless list of things and work to do. And if I don't do those things I often feel guilty because I've been lazy and unproductive. I am trying to stay on top of exercises I need to do for my split abdominal mussels now (result of my pregnancy) and it's frustrating sometimes when I can't do them consistently. Everything is much simpler in the backcountry as I don't worry about all these things. Being outside brings balance into my life. Why do you like being outdoors? #adventuremom #getoutside @moonmountainman

When I gave Zoey a bath today I thought how much she enjoyed this place. I think that Hot Water Beach was Zoey's favorite place in New Zealand. She is not a big fan of cold water but she loves playing and splashing in the water if it's not cold. This was perfect for her plus all the sand she could play with. It was such a fun and unique experience. You need to find the right spot to dig your pull because the water can be really hot, and I think that early mornings there are the best. #hotwaterbeach #nzmustdo

Hot Water Beach
We are back home in WA and it's not warm and green as it was in New Zealand but it's not wintery either. But weather wasn't actually a big adjustment for me. We feel like we came back home with a completely different child. She is so busy and more mobile now and gets busier every day . So the past few days we were busy cleaning the house as she constantly finds every little crumble on the floor. We are also in the process of childproofing our place and sleep training Zoey. The past two months we spent in very small spaces(van or tent) where she was never more than couple feet away from us and she also slept with us in our van bed. So now it is a big adjustment for her and she has a little bit of separation anxiety whenever we leave her alone in the room for a minute, and now she is also back sleeping in her own bed. So we have few things to figure out  but for now I am just enjoying to be back home and just being mom. We took this picture about a year ago when I was pregnant with Zoey and we were excited and scared to be parents. We wanted to keep traveling and adventuring and the past year proved that it's possible. #adventurefamily PC @moonmountainman

Our little van Taco has been sold. It is sad to say goodbye but Taco will take his new owners to more beautiful places and epic adventures. It has been our home during our two months long trip in New Zealand. It was also our first time doing the whole #vanlife thing. It was so nice to be at home anywhere we parked. It was especially useful traveling with Zoey. We could just stop when needed to take a brake to feed her and take a nap or change her. I enjoyed naps and having my little kitchen available when needed too. Now we are thinking to buy a van when we head back to US. It would make our travel much more comfortable and easy. If you are going to travel in NZ I highly recommend downloading CamperMate App. We used it every single day to find camping spots, water, public toilets and showers, and grocery stores. It made our travel much easier. Buying a van here was definitely the way to go as we saved money on accommodations and renting a vehicle. Taco you will be missed greatly. We head back home tomorrow and we try to sit down and write some blogs about our experience here and about the process of buying and selling a van too. Stay tuned. #nzroadtrip #adventurefamily #nzmustdo @moonmountainman

It's been fun to watch Zoey grow and learn during our road trip in New Zealand. She started to crawl actively and standing up, started solid foods,and got her first two bottom teeth. I think that she loved this trip a lot and so did we. We have less than a week left so we are trying to enjoy every moment of it as much as we can. #adventurefamily #nzroadtrip

For the past few days we were exploring caves with glow worms. It was one of the most unique experiences we had in New Zealand and it exceeded my expectations. It was like looking at the night sky inside the cave. Nature never stops to surprise and amaze me. @moonmountainman #glowworms #adventurefamily  #nzmustdo

Looking back at our adventure over Christmas on Abel Tasman track. We did it in an unconventional way. Instead of walking we brought our two person Alpacka Gnu and paddled along the coast over three days stopping at beautiful remote beaches for lunch, stayed at awesome campsites, saw a number of seals, birds and even a blue penguin (smallest penguin  in the world). Zoey is crazy about birds. She would scan the rocks and the sky to see any birds and when she does see them she yells in excitement . I already want to come back and repeat this adventure. #abeltasman #nzmustdo #adventuremom #adventurefamily #abeltasmannationalpark @moonmountainman

In the past year we spent a lot of nights sleeping in a tent with this little girl starting when she was only three weeks old. I need to count how many nights it actually was but it will be not an easy task. She really likes being in the tent. It must be because it feels so small and cozy inside. I am sure we will spend more nights in a tent in 2018. Zoey is a mover now though so it will be definitely a game changer but it's not going to stop us from adventuring together. Just a new challenge to figure out. #adventurefamily @moonmountainman
