Welcome Good Morning America Viewers!
Traveling Mamas are women with a desire to share their travel experiences, inspiring others to see the world beyond their own backyard. We believe that travel is educational and makes us better citizens of our world. TravelingMamas.com was created by Louisiana travel writer and mom, Shannon Hurst Lane. The site launched in January 2008 as the first group travel blog written by moms offering free advice and inspirational travel experience stories.
Shannon created TravelingMamas.com as a positive outlet away from the stressful demands of her full time job in the fire service. The site ended up being more than just a hobby – it became a mission. Readers began to send emails thanking TravelingMamas.com for helping them make family travel memories to last a lifetime. The hobby turned into a business of providing an avenue to happiness and exploration for readers. If you’ve been contemplating taking a trip, be sure to read Shannon’s advice on why you shouldn’t wait to travel and also why she celebrates every day.
Today, Traveling Mamas can be found all over the globe with and without their kids in tow. You can connect and follow along as they Twitter and FaceBook their way around the world, sharing photos and tips from the road and providing post trip reports. Read about the contributors on the About page.
