Get ready for a week full of outdoor adventures with @theamericanfieldtrip! The Bowman family has been living life on the road in a converted shuttle bus since April 2017. So far, they’ve explored 48 states and 47 national parks and counting! Our first stop of the week will be at one of the Bowman’s favorite national parks, @yellowstonenps. “I grew up near Yellowstone and went a lot as a kid. It’s still one of my favorite places on Earth and I was thrilled to bring my kids. You’re sure to see wildlife on a visit here and the volcanic landscapes are a dream. Kids love the geothermal features, with their burbling, belching, steaming mud pots and blasting geysers,” Madison Bowman says.⠀
Have you visited Yellowstone with your family? If so, what were the highlights for your little ones? Share with us below! #gowithnugget ⠀

What a fabulous few days in Toronto! Honestly, this was a city I never liked that much, but this trip changed my mind completely. Congratulations to @travelingmitch & @bdobs19 on a gorgeous wedding! The bride was stunning, the groom was a dancing queen, and I cried at least twice. Weddings are the best!
Thank you to @erinmorawetz & Mrs. Morawetz for hanging out and showing me why you guys love Toronto!

New post up on the 19 reasons to visit Colombia. The Cocoro Valley is my number one reason with wax palms growing up to 60 metres tall. This area near Salento and the coffee region is my absolute favourite.
In honor of #SharkAwarenessDay , I’d love to answer a question frequently asked: Are you not terrified swimming with sharks?
Truth be told, I’ve never been 100% comfortable with jumping into shark-infested waters. While my instincts scream “flee!” and the sight of a fin slicing through the water still sends my heart racing, I recognize that for far too long, we’ve been conditioned to fear sharks. The problem is that this fear doesn’t only affect our own personal hesitance to swim with them, but it also brands sharks as terrifying predators that aren’t worthy of our protection.
Over the years, personal experiences with sharks has made me way more comfortable with being in their presence underwater. From hammerheads and tigers in Socorro, to swimming with duskies and bronzies feeding on bait balls during South Africa’s sardine run — I’ve been fortunate enough to have up close and personal experiences with creatures that aren’t only ferocious predators, but rather majestic, often shy and sometimes inquisitive. I’m not sure that innate sense of terror will ever go away for me, but I’m learning to face that fear, and appreciate the incredible opportunity to share our oceans with such creatures, and recognize the need to protect them. 🦈 #turningthetide
