ABOUT FLYING HOUSE BY TRAVELING MAMA
Flying House by Traveling Mama is a travel and lifestyle blog about traveling and living a life full of curiosity and with a sense that something new is always just around the corner.
Welcome! I’m Tina Fussell, founder and editor of Flying House by Traveling Mama blog. I am a photographer, writer, and stylist who loves to explore the world, preferably with my favorite travel companions, my husband, who is also a photographer, and our three kids. We have discovered that the world is full of possibility, populated with ordinary people doing extraordinary things, and that a little bit of curiosity can be one of life’s greatest gifts.
I started the blog in 2007 to simply update our family and friends back in the US about our new life and home in Morocco.
We have since moved to Copenhagen, Denmark and still love to share from our life as Americans living in a foreign country, but we also love to indulge our wanderlust as often as possible. Our time in Denmark has certainly influenced our style and as we seek to find well designed things for our own lives as we live here and travel the world, we like to share those finds with our readers. We write about everything from the best coffee shops, the latest in fashion, the coolest shops, the best travel items, and, of course, the beautiful cities and landscapes we see along the way.

CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT YOURSELF?
I am deeply passionate about living a life that not only creates beauty but also discovers beauty in the life around us. In many ways writing Flying House has returned me to my roots of my journaling days. I deeply believe in living a life that reflects who we’ve been created to be and I think we can learn from and be shaped by this amazing world around us that is filled with new ideas, thoughts, and people. My focus on the blog is similar to my focus with my family, to share great ideas and to help us develop a life that truly reflects who we are.
WHERE DO YOU LIVE NOW?
We are currently living in Copenhagen, Denmark. We moved here in June, 2010 and since then have truly fallen in love with our life here.
HOW DID YOU END UP LIVING THIS OVERSEAS ADVENTURE?
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 the blog.
After receiving a job offer in the enchanting city of Copenhagen, we planned our first visit and within the first few days we all knew that this was where we belonged.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
If you are looking for beautiful captures of everyday life in Copenhagen and around the world, look no further! Tina writes about her adventures “raising a traveling tribe” and has great tips for any restless soul out there looking to wander. Her blog taught me that it is possible to travel and be adventurous even with a big family, and her incredibly positive outlook on life is truly inspiring. And did I mention the beautiful photos?!–The Copenhagen Tales
