Welcome to The Wandering Daughter! As a mother to three children, I know how daunting the idea of family travel can seem. I’m here to make travel more accessible and approachable to families. With my stories and tips, I hope I can inspire you to take your kids out into the world and start exploring.
We are an American born family of four, Curtis (the father), Mishele (the mother), Aaron (oldest son), Elijah (youngest son), and Albie (the dog). We live a pretty adventurous life traveling the world as international educators
Our travels have a purpose. We are not interested in whirlwind trips just to check a city off our list. We want our kids to get to know the world. To feel comfortable where ever they go. We plan, we prep and we have fun. There is no greater gift that we can give them, no better way to learn!
We are a Tibetan/Indian/American family of four (2 parents, 2 children) and we welcome you to our blog. A few months ago all I could do was count the number of years (20) left before I could retire so that I could pursue a new direction in my life. Then it occurred to me, by research, self evaluation and self realization that we could do this now. So after 18 years of working as a civil engineer, I quit my job and we will begin a journey across the world.
We believe that travel makes families stronger, smarter and happier. Time spent on family vacations builds lasting family connections. Visiting new places keeps adults and children’s brains active. Memories from a great vacation can last a lifetime.
My family travels quite a bit every year and this blog is a fun way to keep a log of our adventures and motivate and inspire others to travel. I believe that its all about experiences and I want to show my children the world. Hope you enjoy the ride and gather tips and intel for your own awesome adventures!
We are the parents of nine children, five by birth and four by adoption (with special needs). All are treasured. We share great places to stay, expert travel tips, and adventure stories to inspire your family travel.
