Using Travel and Technology as Teachers

with Jason Jenkins

August 10, 2015

I loved being asked to do this podcast with Jason Jenkins as I have admired his writing and his program for a long time. We share a great passion for family travel and especially for Japan.

Jason has a bit of a different approach to family travel interviews.  He focuses on families, and specifically the types of tools, economics, essentials and a variety of technology that families on the move use.  This is exactly the type of podcast I would have loved to have had available before we set off!

Interview with Stephanie Zito from “Upgrade Upgrade UnlockedUnlocked” – Unconvential Guides

November 20, 2014

We were so excited to have Stephanie Zito from the Chris Guillebeau’s Unconvential Guides team reach out to us asking for an interview to help promote their latest Guide: “Upgrade Unlocked, The Unconvential Guide to Luxury Travel on a Budget.”   Lorenzo and I were thrilled to be a part of their project!

As many of you know, our family paid for a lot of our RTW trip using free airline and credit card miles. This is an interview about how we made that happen.  But, in addition to helping fulfill a personal goal of mine to help inspire more families to hit the road, it is with great pride that I also get included in a project run by two truly amazing people whom I greatly admire both for their humanitarian work as well as their passion for travel – Stephanie Zito and Chris Guillebeau.

Thanks so much both of your for including us.  We are truly humbled and thrilled to be a part of helping inspire families to know long term travel is more than possible with kids.
