Meet Sarah & Harry:
Hi! I’m Sarah Hirsch, and am thrilled you’ve found my luxury family travel blog, Well Traveled Kids!
What was my inspiration for creating Well Traveled Kids?
When I became a mom, I wanted to start something new and fun that could involve my son. My career up until then had been exciting and full of accomplishments in promotions and marketing. But, I was ready to make a change. I wanted to do something totally different for my next chapter.
So, I asked myself an important question: What do I love to do most?
The truth, I absolutely LOVE to travel with my little boy, Harry! I decided to make that my new business. That’s when I started Well Traveled Kids as my next career venture, and I am currently focusing my time growing the Well Traveled Kids website and social media.
Additionally, I absolutely LOVE when my friends share details about the amazing family adventures they take with their children. That’s why I’ve included over 30 contributing authors family vacation stories on this site, along with my own. I hope you will be as inspired as I am while reading stories from families of different sizes who have traveling well with their kids down to an art.
The site combines my three favorite things – quality family time, fun family travel adventures, and supporting great philanthropic organizations who bring opportunities for play, fun, adventure and travel to all kids.
At 7 years old, Harry is a seasoned traveller and expert on fun family travel. Harry is always up for a good family adventure. When he’s at home he loves playing with all things related to travel. He’s obsessed with planes, trains, cars, suitcases, maps, globes, postcards, luggage tags, room keys, travel games, headphones, smart phones and vacation photos.
Harry has a personality as big as his smile, and he loves to share stories of his vacations and family adventures with friends through pictures and videos!
When Harry is not exploring the world through travel, he enjoys first grade, time on the playground with friends. He’s also always up for a staycation weekend finding fun and adventure outside our front door in Chicagoland.
