Please tell us about TheLittleTravelers.com and how it started
It started when the girls were 3 and 5. I had been waiting for this age before I could travel again, since that was my 'green light.' No more diapers, strollers or any extra 'stuff' at that point. So when they reached that age, we were off and running. We went to Japan first since I had lived there for 3 years in my early 20's, so it was a natural beginning.
Tell our readers about the LittleTravelers DVD series.
The Little Travelers takes a look at what life is like for children in other countries. What does a 5 year old's birthday look like in Japan? What do kids order when out to eat in Iran? Do faeries really live in Ireland? All the important things that children would like to know about a country are included.
What is the most exciting place your family has traveled to? What place did the children enjoy the most?
So hard to say... the girls never answer this question when people ask them. They really don't have a favorite. There are aspects to each that they hold particularly dear and those are the sushi restaurants in Japan with the traveling sushi, the week on the horse caravan in Ireland- I regularly get asked when we will live in one of those, the 'cotton candy' of Iran, staying in castles in Germany and the massages in Bali are a few that stand out
Have you remained in contact with any of the people or families that you have met during your travels?
The internet makes that soo much easier than before- so yes
Three words to describe your family.
Fun, adventurous, calm - we recently realized we are very calm after an extended stay with some friends who weren't. We really don't make a ton of noise when the three of us are together. One person speaks at a time, no yelling. I never realized how much I appreciated this until recently.
