2 Travel Dads

2TRAVELDADS

Chris and I (I’m Rob, Hi!) have been together for 10+ years.  We’ve been legally married since 2013.  Before kids we were just another couple exploring the world, but now with our little dudes we’re 2TravelDads… and we keep on traveling.

Together, Chris and I have traveled through Europe, Mexico, the US and Canada. And we’ve gone to Asia separately a few times.  We’re not fancy, but when the opportunity presents itself, we definitely opt for a posh hotel with a nice pool over “old world charm”.  We will deal with a scary room in a pinch.  We will camp in odd places.  We’re not afraid of taking our kids on adventures.
