An Interview With Wandermom


I was shaking in my boots (ok flip-flops) on Friday when, at the pre-arranged time, I called in to the DreamList Radio show to be interviewed by the host Melissa Borghorst, author of the Dream List series.

The 30-minute interview passed in a flash and I’m so happy I had the opportunity to answer Melissa’s questions and those of her listeners. Here’s a link to the show in case you feel like listening.

During the show, in answer to Melissa’s questions, I referenced many websites, products and books which I have used or still use in planning my family’s travels. Since I do tend to speak quickly and I also have a slight accent issue, here’s a quick list:

Infant Carriers: Baby Bjorn, Ergo, Kelty Kid’s Carrier

Favorite Guidebooks: Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, DK Eyewitness Series (great for kids!)

Websites For Flight Planning:, Farecast, Vayama and

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!
