This blog is dedicated to our travels around the world and our hopes that one day our daughter and son will realize the charmed lives they've lived.
My wife, Katie, and I took our first trip where we had our passports stamped after we had been married just over a year. We went to Sweden and Denmark where I had lived for 2 years. During our flight home to Utah, we had a conversation that went something like "wouldn't it be cool to get our passports stamped every year?" It hasn't always worked out that way, but 15 years into marriage we've been to 18 countries and counting...
Once our first child joined our family, there were two thoughts we had as it related to traveling, we don't want to stop just because we have a kid, and if we do take the time off work, she deserves to be with us. So, Gwen has grown up thinking there is nothing unusual with getting on an airplane and flying 10 hours to a place with different languages, smells and foods.
We've been to some amazing places, met wonderful people, experienced great cultures. However, what Katie and I believe is most important is to get out and create memories with our kids. It's funny, but I think our 12 year old daughter would struggle to tell you what she got for Christmas last year, but she can still describe the beach in Koh Samui that we walked one night when she was 5.
So here I go, publishing our blog. A little nervous to expose the Chandlers to the cyber world but glad to carve out a small place in that cyber world that Gwen and Mason can visit one day to remind them of the special times our family shared in unique places around the world.
