Family Travel! Have you considered Colombia, Guatemala, Thailand, China? They are all at the top of my family’s travel list. What about your family? What dream trip do you have on the horizon?

Whether it’s Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Belize, India, Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia (or any of the countries listed above), I’m thrilled to tell you that Motherland Travel is expanding to help you plan your next transformative family trip! At the workshops I have held over the past several years at Heritage Camps of CO, I talk about how to make a Heritage Journey transformative for your family. I write about it, I talk about it … yeah, it’s what I do!

I’m a parent like you so I understand the type of trip you’re looking for … You want a trip with purpose. You want to open your kids’ eyes to the world. You want a trip that will build deeper connections. You want to create memories that last a lifetime. You want a trip that is more than just a vacation!

Perhaps you want a trip that will build self-esteem and strengthen family bonds. Believe it or not, you can make that happen while zip-lining through the rainforest in Costa Rica and that’s what we specialize in! Think about how pumped your kids will be roasting marshmallows on a lava field at the top of a volcano in Guatemala! Or how about bathing an elephant in a river in Thailand? Shoot, not sure there’s anything much more thrilling than swimming with bioluminescent organisms in Colombia, but we can sure try!

We began this journey by designing birth country trips for families with internationally adopted children. An adopted child’s Heritage Journey requires much planning and great nuance to make sure it is the best possible experience for the child and the entire family.

The feedback from families we’ve worked with has been humbling. We create experiences that do not end when you come home – lasting, transformative experiences that you’ll be talking about years from now. And we’d LOVE to do that for your family.

My request to you is two-fold:

1) I’d love the opportunity to help plan a trip for your family. If you are thinking of traveling this year or next, please shoot me a note and tell me what kind of experience you are looking for – I’d love to think it through with you and tell you the secrets to making your trip a truly transformative trip for your family. Better yet, get on my calendar so we can begin planning! Just go to and sign up for a discovery session.

2) I’d love it if you would consider forwarding this post to your friends and family so they know I’m out here and am committed to making family travel an experience that will inspire a lifetime of great memories!

Thank you so much! Now let’s go see the world!

My best to you,
