The map above shows all the countries we visited on our family world trip. Now that we’re back, I’m realizing that we have thousands of photos to share and hundreds of stories to tell about this amazing adventure.
As I write stories and share them here, I’ll update the map. Clicking on a country that is ‘In Progress’ (Yellow) or ‘Completed’ (Green) will take you to a summary page with photos and stories about where we went and what we did when we visited that country.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    Have you ever considered Korea, Philippines or Japan? I just got back from teaching in Korea and can tell you it is well worth the effort to travel.

    I also traveled to Tokyo (which is amazing for the nightlife and culture weirdness) and the Philippines (which was a tropical paradise and very cheap to survive in) while teaching in Korea. Both were completely different cultures to visit. The whole experienced changed my life for the better and it is always fun to read about it doing the same for others.
