What is the Women in Travel Summit?
The Women in Travel Summit (also called WITS) is a conference for women travel bloggers and influencers. It’s put on by Wanderful, an international community of women who travel. The conference started because the women of Wanderful saw a need for an event where travel bloggers and influencers could come together to share their experiences about being a woman in this industry. The conference features hands-on, applicable workshops and networking opportunities to empower and inspire women in the blogging and influencer world.
The 6th Annual Women in Travel Summit (WITS) is in Portland, Maine from May 3-5, 2019.

The Butchart Gardens is a world famous garden located near Victoria, British Columbia in Canada. It’s about a 40 minute drive from downtown Victoria and it’s the most popular thing to do in Victoria, BC.
We saved the world-famous The Butchart Gardens for the last day of our Babymoon in Victoria so we’d end strong. We hopped on the CVS Tour bus located directly in front of the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Our guide was humorous and gave us a lot of background information about The Butchart Gardens and the Butchart family during the 40 minute drive. When we arrived, we felt like we had a solid understanding of the place, which made exploring even more fun!

Stanley Park is Vancouver’s number one tourist attraction. It’s easy to see why, especially in the summer. There are so many things to do in Stanley Park that one could easily spend several days here exploring all the options. A few of the activities include: Stanley Park train, the Tea House at Stanley Park, Stanley Park Horse Drawn Tour, Stanley Park bike rentals, and so much more. The views are beautiful and the park is expansive.
We had the opportunity to visit with my toddler while I was 7 months pregnant. That meant we really had to pick and choose what activities we could manage. We wanted to see the park and also do things that were especially fun for our toddler. Here’s what we ended up doing:

On our trip to Vancouver, BC with a toddler, we decided to take a walk around the city on our last day. We packed my toddler in his stroller and went for a walk through Downtown Vancouver to get a feel for the city. Our first priority was to check out the Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre and then enjoy a Harbour Cruise in Vancouver. Here’s what we thought of each activity:

A Look Back at 2017
Like many of you, I’m spending today reflecting back on 2017. At this time last year, our family was trying to balance a newborn and toddler while settling into our new home. We also were nervous for our first family trip. To say that it was a stressful time would be an understatement!
Last updated on July 15th, 2019 at 03:18 pmScience World is a “must-do” if you are visiting Vancouver, BC with a toddler. It’s such a well-thought out museum with tons of things for children and adults. Even if you aren’t a fan of science museums, it’s a fun place to play with your kids. We checked it out last year when our toddler was 2 years old and we returned this year when he was almost 3 years old along with our 2-month-old baby.

My family loves to go up to Vancouver, BC. It’s just a 3-hour drive from Seattle and there are fun things to do and super friendly people up there. So, when I saw a deal from Travelzoo for the Executive Hotel Vintage Park, I was happy to have an excuse for our next trip.

When my Mom offered to watch our toddler for a weekend getaway from Seattle, we figured it would be perfect timing to go on a babymoon.
Last updated on December 2nd, 2019 at 08:02 pmWow! Simply wow! I’ve wanted to stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel since they donated to one of the many auctions I used to manage for nonprofits back in my former life. There was something so magical and authentic about the hotel and I knew if I ever had the opportunity to head up to Vancouver Island, that’s where I’d stay in Victoria, BC. When my Mom offered to watch our toddler for the weekend, I seized this opportunity to finally stay at the Fairmont Empress Hotel and explore Victoria, BC. We were able to get a fantastic rate through Boeing.

When we saw that Victoria, BC offered a tour of a castle, we figured we should probably check it out. Thankfully, it was a stop on our Victoria Sightseeing Tour. The road to get up to Craigdarroch Castle is narrow, so our tour bus dropped us at the bottom of the hill and was walked up. This was cool because we really got that “Oh Wow” moment when the castle appear around the corner.
