Exploring the World One Playground at a Time!
Welcome to Family Travel Fever. We are a large unconventional family, that was bitten by the travel bug! We travel with kids and sometimes grandparents, aunts uncles and cousins too. But I don’t mind flying solo with my crew discovering the coolest places to play near and far from home.
We know modern families are frequently unconventional – blended, multigenerational, single, large or small. We believe all families should travel together. It’s just that simple.
I want to share that passion with you! That’s why I’m are here.
I am Shauna, the mom, logistics coordinator, travel guide, cook, writer, and accountant and on my off days, I am an engineer.
When I was growing up, my Dad worked for the airlines, so my brother and I traveled all over the world. As we got older, we had more freedom to jump on a plane and explore new places. We traveled non-revenue standby, back before online check-in, seating charts or cell phones.
More than flying I love traveling in an RV. It fits my family perfectly…. and being an engineer, I am always tinkering with the systems to figure out everything works.
I decided that travel trailer sitting in the driveway should be paying for itself… so I started renting it out. And I can teach you how to.
I have a mix of enjoyable travel guides for your family and How-to articles.
Traveling on a tight budget with a large nontraditional family requires some creativity.
We already outgrew renting a small car, having enough beds in one hotel room and eating out every meal. I have to continually budget our time, money and patience. RVing is a perfect solution for getting all of us out and having fun.
Family travel fever is contagious and we hope to inspire you too!
I will be sharing our adventures and tips and tricks we have learned for traveling together. You will see, I write about my errors, miscalculations and mishaps so that you can learn from my mistakes.
I am always trying out new ideas for traveling with my crew and different creative ideas for fun near and far from home.
