Enjoying this family activity
Kalyra did an amazing job. It was her first time on a geared bike. After a shaky start, she got the hang of the gears and the ride was smooth. She’s now begging us for a geared bike for her birthday.

Take your time
It’s moments like this that keep me motivated to continue traveling as a family. It can be an exhausting experience and, most days, I feel like giving up. But then we have these days where we use our bodies, experience awe and wonder, connect deeply to nature and to each other. It’s these days where I get to experience the growing character and strength of my daughters and get to know their spunky spirits a little better.
