About

Who Are We?

We are a city family with jobs. Our kids go to public schools and we juggle soccer, basketball, and football practices weekly. We volunteer in our community. We try to be healthy. We try to keep our kids from killing each other. We also love to have adventures, meet new people and share what we’ve discovered.

Before motherhood, Rina Baraz Nehdar was an award-winning journalist for both television and radio. She started writing for print publications in between her baby’s naps and neglected chores. Since then, several outlets have repeatedly published her work and she is a frequent, happy contributor to Wherever Family, Global Traveler Magazine and L.A. Parent Magazine, specializing in Family Travel. She started this website to keep sharing the stories, videos and photos of places that have a large tale to tell with advice on how to recreate the adventures with your own family.

Rina has brought on the writers below to expand the reach of the experiences that we can share with other real families who may not be ready to sell it all and quit it all to travel, who just want a great vacation with their kids or girlfriends or husbands.

We are excited to work with family friendly destinations and are open to reviewing gear that would make a family’s life easier.
