    "Travelling has been an unparalleled way to connect with my 2-year-old and see the world through her eyes. Without travel, I wouldn't have experienced my favorite moments with her."

    "Traveling teaches my kids that the world is full of diversity, where some people look like them and others don’t, but we are all the same."

    Lizzeth Valdivieso

    I love traveling with my daughter because I remember traveling as a kid. We didn’t sleep at fancy hotels nor see any of the seven wonders; in fact, we drove to most of our destinations because we couldn’t afford to fly. But those hours in the car, racing in the National Mall with my cousins, fishing on the lake with my dad, the first time we went crabbing, walking into Constitution Hall all remain with me. I want that for my kid.
