Traveling in Grand Canyon

As a married mother, I never imagined that I would be traveling the US with my seven year old daughter, let alone documenting our adventures through a blog. However, after a recent health scare, I realized that life is too short to not follow our dreams.

My husband held the fort at home whilst I traveled the country, made memories, and ticked several dreams off the bucket list. I wanted my daughter to share the experience with me too, as we all know that we build off our experiences and become wise beyond our years if we see the world early too.


The Journey

We began our journey in the northeast, stopping in quaint towns and bustling cities alike. Our first stop was Boston, where we explored the historic Freedom Trail and enjoyed some delicious seafood in the North End. From there, we made our way down the coast to New York City, where my daughter was in awe of the towering skyscrapers and bright lights of Times Square.

As we traveled through each state, I made sure to capture every moment on my blog. From the breathtaking scenery of the Rocky Mountains to the rugged coastline of the Pacific Northwest, our experiences were too precious not to share with the world.

Of course, traveling with a young child had its challenges. We had our fair share of meltdowns and mishaps, but we persevered and made some unforgettable memories along the way. From camping in national parks to visiting amusement parks and museums, there was never a dull moment on our travels and I cherish every single moment of it.

One of our most memorable experiences was our visit to the Grand Canyon. As we stood at the edge of the vast canyon, my daughter gasped in amazement at the sheer size and beauty of the natural wonder before us, and it was a moment I will never forget, and one that I am grateful to have shared with my daughter, something she will hopefully always remember too.

As our journey comes to a close, I am filled with a huge sense of gratitude for the opportunity to see so much of our beautiful country, and to bond with my daughter in such a unique way too. I hope that our blog has inspired others to take a chance and pursue their own dreams, no matter how unconventional they may seem.

I close this post with testament to my daughters resilience, for there were ups and downs throughout the journey, and she coped incredibly well throughout every challenge that went in front of us. Travelling the country with your daughter is hard work for both of you, but with careful planning you can have the most amazing experiences of your lifetime.
