Railay, Thailand is one of the first places I read about when we were considering a trip to Southeast Asia. As I browsed Pinterest boards full of inspiring images of beaches and long tail boats I quickly noticed that many of the pictures were from Railay. We knew we had to see it.
Education while traveling was a major consideration for us in planning this trip. After 5 months on the road I thought it was about time I shared some of our tips, tricks, and favorite educational toys, games, apps, and more.
We had a few days in Manila after our Palawan adventure and since our next stop was Thailand our main goal was to get Thailand visas.
In our Boracay travel guide we tell you all about how to get the most from your Boracay vacation! Boracay is family travel paradise. Powder soft white sand beaches lapped by clear blue water.

Seasons Greetings from the Philippines! Sorry for not sending cards this year – I think the postage expense might lead to the end to our travels!

Look at us being sustainable!
All you need to know about how to get to Boracay! We traveled to Boracay in the Philippines over the course of two days, by way of 3 plane flights, a train, taxi, boat, van, bus, and even a long walk. An epic journey worth every minute and every mile.
We’ve taken quite a few long haul flights with Aurora and Jasper before. While all of this experience makes us a bit more confident, we still never quite know how the kids will handle all that time on a plane. The added complication of leaving in the middle of the night definitely tests our family travel savvy. Here’s the story of our most recent long haul red eye with kids.
How do you pack when you plan to travel with kids long term, even indefinitely? In the past we’ve subscribed to the idea that anything beyond a week or two is essentially the same from a packing perspective. While that’s largely the strategy we followed to pack for this adventure, we came across a few complications due to our chosen destinations and the significantly longer time frame.
We leave for San Francisco in four days. Then we will fly to our first international stop: the Philippines. Read on to see what its like for us a few days before leaving our lives behind and flying to the other side of the world.
