I bought you a stuffed animal today. I’ve started doing this nerdy thing that I think is driving your mother insane even though she won’t admit it. I buy you a gift from every place that I travel to.

Father’s Day around the corner, and this one is a bit interesting for me: Laura’s pregnant, and due in about a month. We announced this back in February when we wrote a “Letter to My Unborn Child” sharing what we hope he might gleam from his own travels, 9 countries he’s joined us in, all before he’s ever born.

If you haven’t figured something out, fear not, we’ve got 5 unique gifts for the traveling dad we can’t wait to share with you! Continue reading

It’s also about figuring out what the essentials are when we travel, and what gadgets and gear will make our lives easier when on the road. The holidays around the corner, and one of two things are for certain: Either you’ve got a traveler in your life who deserves a special gift or two (or three), OR you deserve to award yourself with some of the travel items we consider must have’s! So check out our must have Holiday Gift Guide for Travelers…
