Hi, I’m Elise, a physical therapist by training and a former stay-at-hotel mom! My husband was offered a unique opportunity to travel around the world, family in tow, consulting as an engineer wherever his company sent him for the past 3.5 years. Our assignments lasted anywhere from a few weeks to six months. With our oldest starting kindergarten this year, we have settled down in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, but you’d better believe we will still find places to wander near and far.
I enjoy reading, swimming, running, and cooking when I get the chance. My husband, Austin, enjoys wrestling with our boys, organizing our lives into spreadsheets, and keeping everything in our lives running smoothly.
Our oldest son, Landon is a rambunctious five-year-old that loves adventures and digging in the dirt. He is a pro at getting free treats and candies from people and loves buses, cars, and trucks.
Our youngest is Owen, a two-year-old sweet tornado of destruction. He is growing up way too fast and enjoys trying to play with his brother, and eating. Lots of eating!
I hope to share our journey with the family-friendly activities we have found along the way. Every so often, I’ll post some travel tips and tricks that we have gleaned from our life of constant travel and hotel living.
Although our full-time traveling days are over, I’m still catching up on location-specific posts and hope to pass on all of our tips and tricks from our years of family travel experience. We still try to explore and adventure as much as we can, albeit slightly closer to home. Feel free to contact us with questions, comments or suggestions for future posts!
