I am somewhat well travelled 40 year old married mother of two boys (ages 7 and 10).
I love learning about new cities, cultures, foods and meeting new people. My husband and I like to experience neighborhoods and cities like the locals do, rather than clamoring to the tourist attractions.
We love to sit in a pub and talk to the "regulars" and we've met some really lovely people from all over in our travels. We enjoy just walking around a neighborhood or nature exploring on a hike, with a minimal agenda.
As we travel more and more with our kids, we're learning how to relax as a family on a whole different level - balancing activity and exploration with finding an unusual new place to just hang out.
