Hi! I'm Claudia, the travelling mom.
Welcome to thetravellingmom.ca - the modern mom's guide to adventure and travel sanity with your family and beyond.
Whether you've got a teeny tiny baby, cuddly kids or a giant teenager, I want to share the wisdom of my experience as a travel expert to help parents and families undertake the planning of fun and educational Great Family Adventures.
No matter if you're planning a trip to Drumheller, Alberta, by car, Rome, Italy, by plane, or just camping out in the woods, you owe it to yourself and your family to get out and discover the world and the wonders within it.
