I am very excited to announce that I have joined the team over at Trip Styler as their newest monthly columnist. I’ll be covering family travel in a section called KinderHop. Don’t worry, you can still find me here writing about our family misadventures, you will just get a little extra each month.
The first KinderHop launched this morning. Learn a little more about me, and what we have in store for the column. Then come back on the third Monday of each month as I share a little travel wisdom on topics ranging from hotel rooms with kids to the best places on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Not familiar with Trip Styler? Don’t worry, you will be. This travel lifestyle e-publication created by Vancouver-based writer Trish Friesen is for aspiring jetsetters looking for the best way to make their travel dreams a reality. Nothing is impossible. And this is what Trip Styler and Walkingon Travels have in common. I have never shied away from an experience just because my family is in tow. I created a “trip style” that worked for our family.
As Trish puts it, “variety is the spice of life. A trip style is how a person chooses to travel on a given trip, and most travelers have a range. Every trip style is heavily influenced by a number of key factors including: budget, time available, area of interest, travel companions, activity level and desired experience.”
Mike and I have figured out a few of our own trip styles, but they are ever evolving and changing as Dek grows and his little brother joins us in a couple of months. I am very excited to bring a new element to Trip Styler, spread the word that family travel is possible, introduce you to some exciting ideas and learn a little more about myself in the process. We are bound to have a lot of fun.
