A gem of the West, a city to always inspire – modern yet traditional, small yet so complete, a feast of all senses – San Francisco is an everlasting spring, never-ending dream, a backdrop to fashion inspiration and music for all senses.

We were lucky enough a few weeks back to return once again to the country we love to visit, Bali. Its the place we got married at and the country we visited for our two Baby Moons and we love it so. The culture, the food, the smells and the colours make it a place that is unforgettable, and with sun that shines almost daily a great place to escape New Zealands long cold winter. Now that the children are a little older since our last visit and both are now able to swim alone it made for a relaxing and easy holiday. We did some fun activities like visits to the Water Park and the Marine Safari Park, hung out at a few cool Beach Clubs, visited the monkeys and learnt how to plant rice and released baby turtles back into the wild.
I already miss the long lazy days and happy hour cocktails. The shopping is also fabulous and eating at restaurants with amazing food as the sunsets its a real treat. Until next time Bali.
We landed after 16 hours in paradise. A short ride by taxi and we were stranded in Gavea, a quiet, upscale neighborhood with a lot of green surrounded. For us, as a family, security is not an uninteresting point and Gavea gave us this feeling.
We planned to enjoy both ways of the trip – to have enough relaxing days at our pool or turquoise water beaches and some days to explore all the sightseeing. We were really delighted, that sightseeing was not as stressful than expected, because the Brazilian’s adore kids and let us go without making any lines and where in general very friendly and warm people.
A perfect place to escape of some hectic city life was the Botanical Garden, which offered impressive palms, meat eating plants and waterfalls. The kids were running through the park and explored multiple greenhouses, some monuments and had fun with walking stairs up and down to overview the park.
Another dream spot, we had on our bucket list, was the small beach located right below the Sugarloaf, which is really an amazing piece of earth. The beauty of this special light and the view we definitely enjoyed.
We were also spending the evenings listening to the rhythms of Rio´s music, which you can hear allover the city and got spoiled by delicious food of our hotel´s kitchen.
Why do we think, traveling with two little kids from Europe to Rio is a good idea: first of all, Rio is captivating with a mix of relaxing vibes, exotic animals to be close to, outstanding sightseeing and a incomparable spirit of the Cariocas. The kids can discover and learn from different cultures and live long from spectacular colors, soulful music and postcard perfect landscapes, which make the best family adventure.

“I want to see the world.
Follow a map to its edges, and keep going. Forgo the plans.
Trust my instincts. Let my curiosity be my guide.
I want to change hemispheres. Sleep with unfamiliar stars.
And let the journey unfold before me.”-The Maptia Manifesto
This summer, June 2016, I took my two children on an adventure with me to California. We rented a minivan, and let spontaneity take its course. Every morning we woke up, and left the town we were in the day before, and continued on our journey, exploring California. Every night, we settled into some place new, a new hotel, a new airbnb, our new camping site. We didn’t book much, as a matter of fact, most mornings we didn’t know where we would be staying that night. We made new friends every where we went. We did whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. We were FREE. We lived out of our suitcase, and our minivan.
We got lost. We got found. We wandered and explored many towns. We ran wild, and we got dirty. We embraced fear. We LIVED, we explored and we adventured. We breathed in new air, and new life. We, together, learned an entire new way of exploring the world. Most importantly, we learned how to embrace change and the unknown.
