I’VE BEEN AROUND THE BLOCK—AND THE WORLD—A FEW TIMES. I ATTENDED SCHOOL IN FIVE COUNTRIES, RESCUED A SLOTH FROM A PACK OF UNRULY SCHOOLKIDS IN COSTA RICA, STAYED A WEEK WITH ACCUSED WITCHES IN NORTHERN GHANA, ATE MY WAY ACROSS SINGAPORE AND GOT LOST IN A THAI JUNGLE (BUT FOUND MY WAY OUT, THANK GOODNESS).
Then I had kids.
My journey kept me closer to home outside Portland, Oregon raising my two daughters, restarting my paused writing career and generally trying to function on an obscenely small amount of sleep. But as my girls grow and become more curious about the world, the pull of travel urges me to explore—with my family.
Yet when I looked online and scrolled through Instagram, I was intimidated by perfect images of parents and kids traveling together that looked nothing like the messy, sometimes aggravating, always memorable reality of my family’s travel. So I launched To & Fro Fam, an authentic and honest reflection of family vacations near and far—as well as practical advice to help your trips be unforgettable for all the right reasons. I specialize in family vacations in the Pacific Northwest and destinations easily accessible from Portland, Oregon.
I’m so glad you’re here.
