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.

Paris My Way by Oasis Collections' Alexia Sako

Henley Vazquez

We’re unashamed hotel junkies here at Passported, but also love the ease of a home rental when traveling en famille. The problem for us is always navigating the scores of listings, entering into endless back and forth with individual home owners, and finding a substitute for good concierge know-how. Enter Oasis Collections. Started in South America but with new, and ever growing, markets in North America and Europe, Oasis properties are all handpicked by an all local staff and guests are paired with Guest Experience managers in advance. That means you can get the low down on the best neighborhoods to stay, where to eat, seasonal events to book, and request all the kid essentials (cribs, monitors etc.) so you don’t have to lug them from home. 

To celebrate Oasis Collections' newest destination, Paris, we spoke to launch manager (and mom!), Alexia Sako to find out where she recommends for families visiting the City of Light.

Lauren Imparato, the founder of I.AM.YOU, is known for her groundbreaking yoga classes—her disciples sweat and center to the grooves of a live DJ—as well as her nutrition programs. Her classes drawn thousands around the globe, and she was recently named as one of Athleta’s Top 100 Women in Wellness. She’s also an inspirational entrepreneur, a woman who ditched the trading floors of Wall Street to build her yoga empire—and she’s a friend. I caught up with Lauren over coffee and croissants recently and grilled her on advice for how to mesh a heavy travel load with a healthy lifestyle. Her advice: totally sane and incredibly helpful. Look for me doing lion breaths on my next trans-Atlantic flight.
