Welcome! I am the Traveling Mama, wife and mother of three kids (also known as the Traveling Tribe.) This blog is about our Flying House… it is about the places we go, the food we eat, the languages we speak, and the home we make along the way. We hope to inspire others to live creatively no matter where they live!
A little about us:
Current location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Jack, aka Traveling Man, is a nonprofit consultant, a freelance photographer and language school student. He is most likely to be found drinking coffee, playing the guitar, or… taking photos!
Tina, aka Traveling Mama, is a freelance writer, photographer, language school goodie tushu, and family cook. She spends countless evening hours making things by hand… and is prone to daydreaming.
Hailey, aka Traveling Girl, is eleven going on thirty… seriously. Much like her Mom and Dad, she loves to read, catch up with friends and family on skype, and is putting the rest of the family to shame with her Danish skills.
Parker, aka Traveling Boy, is seven. He reads like a champ, loves his Hot Wheels, can name any and every car, and loves to play soccer. His favorite food is pizza but will eat anything just to have dessert!
Landon, aka Little Traveling Boy, is three, but he thinks he’s ten. He has more energy than the entire family put together and the cutest curly brown hair that keeps him out of trouble. His favorite new word in Danish is “nej!” (no!)
How this Flying House earned it’s wings:
Our adventure began in 2002 when we moved to Spain for two years. Our first child, Hailey, was ten months old at the time. When we flew home to the US in 2004, it was her 25th flight and I was no longer enthusiastic about traveling with a kid.
So, we moved back to the States, bought a house, and began our pursuit of “The American Dream.” We had it all… well, except maybe the white picket fence, but we realized soon after settling in that we had yet to sow our wild oats. So, once again we packed up and moved to Morocco, which is where we lived for three years, and began our blogs.
Our flying House is currently resting in Copenhagen, Denmark where we hope to stay for a very long time. We are planning loads of trips around Europe next year and hope to add plenty of stamps to our passports!
