I love what I do and form many different types of bonds with my parents. We may meet as strangers but we say good bye as friends. In the years since I started The Traveling Nanny, I have traveled all over the world with my families and on personal travel.
I want to encourage families to explore the USA! This is a beautiful country and so much to see and children build travel memories earlier than you think. One of my first travel families and I traveled together for 6 years. While the children no longer need a nanny, we stay in contact as friends. When I am in the area we try to get together. One of the favorite topics when I sit down with the kids is do you remember….They also want to know if I have visited all 50 states! Right now I am minus Idaho, Wisconsin, Vermont…I list the states below that the kids wanted to see on the page!
I’ll never be an expert on the below countries but I love trying to learn about the area, the customs and visit parts of a country away from the cities when I do personal travel. I have also traveled with families on some great cruises including the magnificent Allure of the Seas. On personal travel I have become a fan of River Cruises and have done the Budapest Blue Danube and the German rivers of Moselle and Rhine.
