Shellie Bailey-Shah – Editor of KidTripster

Shellie Bailey-Shah is the editor of KidTripster, an online resource that provides information and inspiration to families traveling anywhere in the world. She is a former television report-turned-travel journalist who made the transition after her family embarked on a 72-day trip around the world. To date, she’s visited 38 countries and all 7 continents – most of them with her kids who are 16 and 19 years old.

Shellie has visited Finland twice: once during the winter and once during the fall – each time exploring different areas and attractions.


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 is the host of Family Travel Radio—a weekly podcast presented by The Family Travel Association.

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!)
