Exploring the World with Our Kids

From Budget Retreats to Luxurious Escapes

We’re Ashley & Shandi. With our kids, we love to explore new places worldwide. We’ve been traveling a few months every year since our kids were born, internationally and in the U.S. We’ve also spent decades working in the travel industry.

What makes our reviews different? We don’t just stick to one type of trip; we cover both luxury and budget travel. And all of our guides are from places we have been. We like learning a few words in another language, trying new foods, and learning about local traditions in our adventures.

Here are some of our favorite pictures from Costa Rica, Switzerland, and New Zealand.
