About Us

Hi! We are the Kim Family – Jae, Christine, and our daughter Sophie. We’re so glad you found us!

We live in New York and we LOVE to travel! The more exotic and interesting the place, the better! We created this website so that we could share our adventures with you and inspire you and your family to travel more. We’ve seen so many families limit their travels to nearby road trips, Disneyworld or Disney cruises…and as much as we like those too, there is so much more to explore!

While we were pregnant with our daughter, we were worried that we would not be able to travel after having a baby. We didn’t want to give up travel, so we decided to commit to traveling to an international destination every year, with baby in tow. Now that our daughter is school age, we take time off during school breaks and long weekends to travel.

At the age of 7, Sophie now has more stamps on her passport than some adults we know! We’ve taken her to Korea, Cancun, Marrakesh, Barcelona, Paris, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Bali, and Dubai. And those are only the international destinations we’ve taken her to. You can explore all the destinations we’ve gone together as a family on this map.

We’ve decided to continue checking off destinations from our bucket list, while sharing these experiences with our daughter. These trips create lasting memories and keep us feeling excited about life! We hope our travels inspire you to check destinations off your bucket list too!

Traveling Tips

Traveling with our little family, we’ve learned some tricks on how to make travel easier. We don’t carry around giant car seats and boosters to the airport like others. We used to travel with a pack and play, but we eventually found ways around that too. Although we don’t necessarily always travel light, we’ve learned what’s essential and what’s not, and we’ve managed to deal with nap time, jetlag, and entertaining a kid on flights.

Visit our Travel Tips to learn more about how we make travel easier with a baby, now little girl. We know if you have more than one child, everything gets multiplied, but with a few easy tricks, it’s possible to enjoy your vacation as an adult couple as much as your child(ren) do too (without feeling like a sherpa)!

Spa-Goers and Foodies

We love spas and gourmet food, so we also share special places we’ve discovered locally and through our travels. We usually take turns getting spa treatments while one of us takes care of our daughter, unless we are able to go somewhere local while she’s in school. We do what we have to to make it work to make the most of our trips! Christine has also taken some cooking classes around the world as well, which is always fun too!
