Fathers Day Giveaway Day 1 – Win a book on America’s National Parks

August 14, 2015

Is the Dad in your life a travel junkie? Maybe a cruise around the world isn’t quite in the budget for Father’s Day this year, but Cristin from Between Roots and Wings blog wants to at least get his imagination running by sharing a beautiful book about the places she thinks everyone should have on their travel “bucket list” – America’s National Parks.


Great Smoky Mountain National Park

Cristin moved to Australia from the U.S. five years ago, and she blogs about being an expat in Sydney. She’s also Mum (or, as she says “Mom”) to an Aussie-American toddler, so she shares her thoughts on parenting-related topics, plus all of the adventures that her family gets up to around Sydney – and sometimes even around the world. Her blog is thoughtful and often really funny. She says, “I’m in this space between wanting to settle down and build a home, but also wanting to have a lot of adventures and see the world with my family. I think a lot of people, particularly expats, can relate to that. It’s why my blog is called Between Roots and Wings – I’m finding the balance between settling in and exploring.”

Yellowstone National Park

Before moving to Australia, Cristin was able to visit a number of the National Parks in the U.S., and considers them to be some of the most special places in the world – from the Appalachian culture and scenic beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains to the otherworldly landscape of Yellowstone, and points from coast to coast. America’s National Parks is a ” lavishly illustrated book describes each of America s 58 national parks in careful detail.” Cristin said that she chose this book for the Father’s Day competition because, “I’ve loved exploring Australia so much, and in return, I’d love to share a bit of what I consider to be the best part of my home culture with one of your readers.”
