Welcome to Family Travel. If you don’t want to change your itchy-footed ways even though you’re now a parent, this blog’s for you.

As the parent of two kids, ages 6 and 13, my husband and I have been blessed with the opportunity to show our children how much fun it is to see new places and explore different cities/states/countries. I grew up in a Navy family and I joined the Navy myself for one of the classic reasons: to see the world. I have not been disappointed.

When I leave the Navy, I plan to become a full-time freelance writer. Although I have never blogged before, this seems like a terrific way to get started giving people ideas about how to travel with kids.

In the next few months, I will post a variety of articles on both US and overseas family travel experiences. We have lived in Japan and the Netherlands, and as a preteen I lived in Bahrain, not to mention all of the places I’ve been able to go in the US.

To get started, I’ve posted a link (under My Travel Links) to the About.com Travel With Kids site for my article on an American South Road Trip, and coming up soon, Tokyo With A ‘Tween.

Happy Trails….Seafarer
