New York, NY
USA

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

A Year in Family Travel

Henley Vazquez

Photographer Stephanie Pommez and her family relocated from New York to Hong Kong last year. Since landing, they've explored all corners of Asia as well as making trips to Brazil, sailing with extended family in the BVIs and doing summer camp family-style in New England. Here she shares some shots of a few places they've been (yes, there are even more) and what stood out in each destination. We're so inspired by her beautiful photos but also by her mission to introduce her children to the different cultures, communities and cuisines around the globe.
