This blog was started to bring you travel tips, ideas, and places you would want to visit with or without children. So whether you are a new parent, have children already, or are single, you will find a little something for everyone here. Live like a local. Be a traveler, not a tourist.
My name is Erin Austen Abbott, and I spent years traveling for work as a crew member for various bands and as a travel nanny before my husband Sean and I had our son, Tom Otis. I have traveled to 48 states and 25 different countries over the years, and when I’m not traveling for work as a travel writer and content creator or with my family, I can be found at home in Water Valley, MS, where I work as a freelance writer and photographer. I am also an author with my third book coming out in the fall of 2024. I have a BS in Early Childhood Education and currently homeschool our fifth grader.
In those years of traveling for work, I picked up so many travel tips and amassed an extensive suggestion list of sights to see. I hope to incorporate my love of art, books, music, architecture, design, and food into every post. Thanks for reading! – Erin
