NAPPASilver_with_yrShelly and I have been in contact since she visited San Diego with her family and wrote a blog featuring Toddler’s Travels in 2008.   I am filled with admiration for Shelly who has managed to create a life where traveling and adventures with her family is intermeshed with her work.  Shelly has traveled to Thailand, Tunisia, Manhattan, Yosemite, Paris, Chichen Itza, Hawaii, Pompeii, Barcelona, Jamaica, London, Costa Rica and elsewhere with her own children under five- so she is quite the expert on how to travel with babies, toddlers and young children.

Now that Shelly and her husband’s children aren’t toddlers anymore she has started a new website, Family Travel 411, for all kinds of useful information about travel with school-age children.  My new go-to resource!
