I am an aspiring writer who caught the travel bug early on with two different European exchanges when I was in school - first in Finland, then France.
Now that I travel with my husband and two boys (12 and 14), I have a harder time cramming a few weeks worth of clothes into a backpack, but enjoy the chance to show the world to my kids. Favorite family trips include Vancouver BC during the
Winter Olympics, Prague, and Hawaii. I enjoy staying in places with kitchens because I find dining out three times a day as a family to be expensive and time-consuming when there are so many better things to be doing.
We discovered AirBNB last year and had a delightful stay in a condo in downtown Vancouver BC where we had traveled to see the Journey concert.
At this stage of life, we spend a ton of time going to swim meets and soccer games, but when we aren't on the sidelines we like to ski, kayak, hike, and explore the outdoors.
