OUR GUESTS

In 2016 Nicola and her husband quit their jobs to take their children ages four and one-and-a-half around the world for eight months. Some 25 flights later, returning with a full passport, a full heart and the same number of teeth and limbs as when they left, she decided to start helping other people bring their dreams of complicated travel with children to life.
