Q&A – Natalie & Family, Cosmos Mariners

Thanks to Natalie of Cosmos Mariners: Destination Unknown for today’s stellar Q&A post. Be sure to follow her on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

What’s your name, where are you from, and share a little about your mom or dad.
Natalie Vereen-Davis. I'm from Charleston, South Carolina, though I lived all over South Carolina during my childhood. My mom and dad are my travel inspirations--they had my younger sister and I traveling when we were very small, which is why I love to travel so much to this day! My mom is an accountant and my dad is in banking, so our trip budgets were always very carefully balanced even before we left the house.

Q&A – Lotte, Mom, & Their Phenomenal Family

Thanks to Lotte from Phenomenal Globe for today’s marvelous Q&A post. Be sure to follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

What’s your name, where are you from, and share a little about your mom or dad.
Hallo allemaal or Hello everybody in English! I'm Lotte, born and raised in the Netherlands but on a quest to explore as much of the world as possible!

I have always loved travel… From a very young age my parents have taken me and my sisters on amazing family holidays, going camping in France, road tripping around Norway, sightseeing in Italy and exploring around England. Amazing memories that I deeply cherish…

When I grew older I went on holidays with my boyfriend (now husband) and/or with friends. But I still regularly travel with my mom and dad. In fact, when looking back on 2016 I realized I made 4 trips with my parents in the last year! Yup, I love my family and I love travel and the combination of the two ;-).

The Tale of Mom’s Ferragamo Shoes

It all started with a pair of Ferragamo shoes. My 80-something mom has a bit of a vain streak and this trip was no exception. She had a beautiful outfit picked out for a family event, but our flight was delayed, and we no longer had time to swing by the hotel first to...
