My name is Christina, and I am the owner and writer of Our Sweet Adventures – a family travel blog where I share guides to all the beautiful places we go, tips for traveling with kids, and recipes inspired by our trips!
I am from Dallas, Texas, and a graduate of Texas A&M University – WHOOP! I went to Texas A&M to play soccer, but along the way, I found my passion for the culinary industry and started to pursue my career with a Tourism Management degree. After I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013, I went to work in the fast-paced hospitality world – Viva Las Vegas! I was eager to work every minute of every day to move up in my career until I met Adam.
Adam and I always dreamed of traveling and seeing the world, but that’s all it ever was… a dream. When we started dating, we went on small adventures and quickly realized how much we enjoyed traveling and discovering new places. Our small adventures around Las Vegas turned into: weekend trips to California to watch sunsets over the endless ocean, hiking the highest peaks in Zion National Park, and even a 24-hour trip to Arizona to watch hockey.
Eventually, we expanded our weekend trips from Las Vegas and went to St. Lucia for our honeymoon, spent 3 months in Europe, hiked to Machu Picchu, took a road trip in Ireland, went on a safari in Africa, and more.
Since 2013 we have been to 4 continents and 18 countries, eating our way through different cuisines and experiencing new adventures. Along the way, we went from a luxurious travel couple to traveling with kids. It has been an incredible journey, and I am very excited to have you follow along “Our Sweet Adventures”.
On this website, you will find inspiration and tips for traveling with kids (including twin travel), destination guides from around the world, weekend getaways, hiking adventures, and more. But wait, that is not all you will find at Our Sweet Adventures…..
You can also find recipes inspired by our trips worldwide. As a previous pastry chef and several years in the kitchen, I use my knowledge, resources, and experiences to bring different cuisines and dishes into your kitchen.
All my recipes are tried and tested (thanks to Adam, family, and friends) and easy to make. From French cuisine to Italian, Caribbean, European, American, and more – you can travel the world through food without leaving your kitchen. Click here to see all my recipes!
