Get to Know… To Europe with Kids

There are a lot of people traveling out there; it’s really not just me wandering the globe with my family. I thought it was time to introduce you to a few of my traveling friends. You can learn about their journey on their blog, but I wanted to dig in a little deeper to find out what makes them tick. Well ok, it’s not going to be that philosophical; I really just wanted to find out what their favorite snack is. Come along on the ride as we “Get to know” a few travelers just a little bit better. 

So, Sonja from To Europe with Kids, what do you blog about?  Traveling to Europe with my kids and as a kid, and the enthusiasm I have for planning trips and recommending little-known family destinations in Europe.

As a child of European immigrants, I began traveling back and forth to Europe with my family at age 3, graduated to European backpacker status in my 20s, and now love to take my own kids to the continent as frequently as possible.  I blog at To Europe With Kids about planning trips with kids and terrific destinations for families in Europe.  You can also find me on Twitter at @toeuropewithkid.
