About Sarah and Harry:
I’m that girl who has always loved to travel! I was lucky to have great parents who loved to spend their time with my sisters and me; they regularly showed us the true value of fun family vacations, exciting road trips, great camping trips and wonderful old-fashioned staycations. Looking back now, most of my favorite childhood memories revolve around traveling WELL as a family. My parents taught my sisters and me to look for adventure around every corner and to explore the world looking for fun.
Now I’m all grown up with a family of my own, and we LOVE to travel WELL together! My husband Scott and I both have a natural Wanderlust. With parents who showed us the world as Well Traveled Kids, we grew up to become a WELL traveled couple. When our Son Harry came along, we decided we weren’t going to change our lifestyle, but instead teach Harry to travel WELL so that he would fit right into the rhythm of our regular travel plans and share our joy in the adventure.
Lucky for us, Harry is a born traveler just like his Mommy and Daddy. At 4 years old, Harry is already an expert on the art of traveling WELL. He loves airports, planes, resorts, hotels, amusement parks, white sand beaches, beautiful nature hikes, fun swimming pools and a good old-fashioned staycation in our Sweet Home Chicago!
I started Well Traveled Kids because I am constantly being asked by other busy parents, friends and clients who are traveling with kids for tips on the destinations, fabulous resorts, restaurants and amusement parks we have enjoyed. So, I get super resourceful and put together lists with tips and stories; I email them to countless friends, and friends of friends, who are traveling somewhere and want to know from me, “the expert,” how to travel well with their kids. After each trip I get rave reviews from those friends, thanking me for the meaningful advice I shared that allowed them to travel well with their kids.
So, in an effort to share not only my own tips and experiences of traveling WELL, but also to be inspired by so many other families who have travelling WELL with their kids down to an art, I have started Well Traveled Kids. The site combines my three favorite things – my family, fun travel adventures, and supporting great philanthropic organizations who bring opportunities for play, fun, adventure and travel to all kids.
I hope everyone who visits regularly finds delightful stories, great reviews, tips, videos and interviews that ensure your travel with your kids is a source of happiness and the start of great memories. I know lots of people think Scott and I are crazy to travel as often as we do with our little boy, but we sure know how to do it so that everyone has a great trip, enjoys meaningful family time and makes wonderful memories. That is exactly my wish for my readers.
Travel WELL Together,
