I’m so excited to introduce you to my new ‘baby’ – The Mother of Adventure!
This web site was born out of my desire to share my experiences and insights as I travel with my family. As a freelance journalist based in Ottawa, Canada, I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel quite frequently – largely within North America and (sometimes) abroad. My husband and I love exposing our kids to different experiences – whether they are a short car ride from home or an international flight away. We believe that our daughters’ lives are deeply enriched through opportunities to see new places, faces and cultures first-hand.
People often ask my advice on travelling with kids. Whether you’re lugging an infant carseat, pushing a toddler’s stroller or holding your grade-schooler’s hand, travel with children requires some special considerations. While I haven’t travelled around the entire globe (just yet!), my hope is that this site will offer up some helpful hints that can be applied to any excursion. In addition, I will chronicle my experiences at museums, shops, restaurants and sights wherever I go – for better or for worse. If another parent can gain some insight into what to do (or NOT to do!) then my mission has been fulfilled.
Here’s to the many adventures that lie ahead!
