On April 15th, I will celebrate the one year anniversary of my family travel blog. Since my very first post, it has evolved from an idea about helping families plan their vacations to a family travel blog focused on providing advice on family travel destinations and tips for getting the most out of family trips. We3Travel has morphed from a hobby to a significant endeavor that provides me with great satisfaction and hopefully brings readers information and inspiration that will inform their next journey.

In the last year, I’ve written about our trips to Costa Rica, Spain, Hawaii, Canada, Cape Cod, New York, Florida, Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Maine. I’ve also written extensively about our home state of Rhode Island. In addition, I’ve tried to offer advice on preparing kids for vacation, what to bring on long flights, great travel books, and must-have travel apps.
