I'm Nicole Wiltrout, a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer/blogger currently living in Collyweston, a small village in the East Midlands of England. We're a family living as expats here, originally from Indiana, USA.

I write about the adventures my husband and I take with our 6-year-old and 4-year-old sons (called "Big Arrow" and "Little Arrow" on this blog). We've covered large portions of the U.S., and now we're tackling Europe! I also share tips and favorite family travel products from time to time.

Before the Arrows entered our lives, my husband and I traveled quite a bit, all over the world. While having children changes everything, travel was something we didn't want to give up. Life is a compromise, so our trips look a little different these days. You're now more likely to find us at a children's museum instead of lingering for hours in a tapas bar, but that's just fine with us. I hope to inspire other families to get out of the house and do more with their kids.
