For some of us, travel and family are inextricably linked. Long, cramped car rides, annual vacations — plenty of forms of travel originate in our childhood, with those who know us best. As we get older, those trips may shift to include families of our own. There are even more personal intersections of family and travel that arise — spurred by our loved ones’ past journeys, or delving into a faraway lineage. This week, come to our chat with memories and dreams alike; we want to chat about any and all ways that our loved ones inspire our wanderings.
This Thursday, Jan. 14 at 2pm ET, we’ll be joined by co-hosts who have made family irrevocable parts of their travels:
Christine Amorose (@cestchristine): blogger, often travels with her family to important places
Caroline Coupe (@lovelivetravel): travel blogger, has followed her family roots to Scotland
