I’ve spent most of my professional life as a writer or copy editor and the past 14 years also as a mom. I started blogging—both personally, at Growing Muses, and publicly, at World Moms Blog—in 2010, when my kids were 1 and 4…they are now 11 and 14.
For the past 7 years, we’ve been taking every opportunity to expand our children’s perspectives and broaden their compassion through travel. We are on a grand experiment to raise Global Citizens. We hope our efforts will make a difference.
I’m 14 and have started this blog with my mom to experience what it’s like to be a co-contributor and travel blogger. I love collaborating with her on this project and posting about our adventures together.
I have been traveling since I was very young and have been to 20 countries. Writing about my experiences gives me a new way to learn from them.
We are American expats living in Portugal. During the summer of COVID-19, we left our temporary home near Lisbon to spend a month driving up through Spain and France and back again. Our goal: to explore some of the best sites with a fraction of the tourists.
This is our collaborative travel blog about our experiences, providing two perspectives: through the eyes of a teenaged-girl and her mid-aged mom. We hope you enjoy the journey.
