Step into the vault!
For the month of July, we’ll be featuring archived interviews from Dramatic Travels—the podcast that spawned Family Travel Radio.
This week’s episode features Kirsten Maxwell from Kids are a Trip in an interview from September 2018.
Kirsten Maxwell – Co-founder of Kids are a Trip
?Kirsten is a freelance travel writer, photographer, and social media influencer based in Chicago.
Kirsten is the owner of Kids Are A Trip, a travel website inspiring families to explore the world with their children. She is also a Travelocity and Moon Travel Guides Ambassador.
After traveling with her family for 15 years, she has learned to find those off-the-beaten path experiences while still finding time to explore the popular attractions.
Her work has been featured in Lonely Planet, The Chicago Tribune, Bravo TV, Family Traveller, and various national publications.
About Your Host
Thanks to the generosity of his grandmother, Aaron Schlein traveled to four continents and a dozen countries before he was old enough to vote. Those early trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.
More than two decades later, Aaron remains inspired by his grandmother’s generosity. He is committed to honoring her legacy by sharing the gift of travel with his own kids—and by helping other parents do the same.
Aaron also helps new entrepreneurs use their personal stories to build a network, expand influence, and strengthen relationships.
Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
