Lindsay hails from Vancouver, Canada but has discovered she loves being a foreigner. She is the voice behind most of the posts you will find here. She is spontaneous, loves travel, soccer, wine, photography and only recently discovered she loves to write. After intermittently journaling for most of her life and then talking about blogging since their first vacation as a family of three, she has finally put the plan into motion. She has the vision behind Carpe Diem OUR Way and has forever tried to seize the day and not let an opportunity slip by. She is new at solo parenting, as well as solo parent travelling and is sharing what she learns about the trials of wrangling two boys by herself on overseas flights and hotel rooms!
Lindsay’s freelance writing can be seen in Travelife, Canadian Traveller, Travel Thru History, Shoulders of Giants and many collaborations online. You can see her published articles on her Freelance Page.
Mattias and Markus are currently along for the ride. At almost 6 and almost 4 years old, they keep their parents busy. Mattias is often referred to as Matti throughout this blog. He is kind and cautious (but has gotten a lot braver since turning 5 and is now “in kindergarten”). Markus is the fearless, don’t-take-your-eye-off-him-for-a second kid with an infectious laugh. Both boy’s friendly attitude and giant smiles light up the faces of everyone they meet.
Most of the posts you will find on this site are catered to family travel, but there will be a few posts of other adventures and possibly mis-adventures and what Lindsay hopes will be inspiration (or at least a little bit of enjoyment).
