Who am I? Excellent question.
My name is Cristin, and I love to explore places near and far.
I have always had a passion for travel and went to several countries and many places in the U.S. before having my daughter, Elizabeth. Having a child slowed me down briefly until I couldn’t wait any longer.
I decided my first mother-daughter airline trip should be with a 15-month-old. By myself, with a stroller, car seat, carry-on, and personal item. I looked like a pack mule.
Did I mention they switched gates while I was changing her diaper and I almost missed my flight? But despite this ridiculous start I love taking Elizabeth on these adventures.
Our family can be found at Disney and Universal theme parks, US National Parks, or on our family 50 US state challenge.
I love traveling, and the research that goes into it. I have read books of places and made itineraries of adventures I’ve yet to book. Not everyone has the time or desire to do the research, but I still think you should have the opportunity to take a trip that runs smoothly.
I have had friends ask me to plan trips for them and they often tell me how well it went by following my recommendations. This has made me want to share this kind of help with all of you.
Thanks for joining the Smart Mouse Travel family!
