I'm Nicole Wiltrout, a freelance travel writer and mom of two children. You'll find me in various corners of the web and in print, writing about my own family's travels or sharing my expertise about destinations around the world. I'm currently working on a children's novel heavily influenced by my own family's vacations around the world.

While I'm a Midwesterner at heart, my family lived in England for several years, and we took more than 15 trips around Europe with two kids (ranging in age from 18 months to 7 years old throughout our time abroad). We've also traveled extensively around North America with our children (now 12 and 9 years old). I also spent several years as a travel advisor for Ciao Bambino, an award-winning family travel blog and travel agency, where I still frequently contribute articles and work behind the scenes. 

You're as likely to see us wandering narrow alleys in big cities as you are to find us camping in the deep woods of a state park. We love good food, history, beautiful places, and culturally interesting experiences. When we're not seeking out fun adventures, we're kicking back at the hotel pool.

I occasionally receive complimentary admission, tickets, products, or trips, which helps reduce our travel expenses. When this is the case, I will always let you know. Rest assured that any opinions expressed on this blog will always be authentically mine. I blog with integrity.
