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.

Obviously, we had a few questions to ask her about how she travels in style with her beautiful daughter Ioni, who at five months old already has over 40K Instagram followers!

Dressing for Mother's Day

Henley Vazquez

We were beyond flattered when one of our favorite fashion brands, AYR, asked us to join their Mother's Day takeover, Role Models=Real Models.

Now with the Mother's Day weekend upon us, we've mapped out the perfect places to wear these outfits.

City breaks are great with children, from stroller age to teen years, but even the most culture-wise kid needs some downtime eventually. The solution? Everyone to the pool! More fun than Netflix, cheaper than afternoon tea at the hotel and a great bargaining tool while sightseeing, a good hotel pool is a game changer. We picked a few of our favorites urban pools around the globe, from Boston to Buenos Aires. Dive in below.

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.
