And sharing a little more personal backstory.
Most of you know that I also work for my husband’s company. I handle social media, business travel, all executive assistant duties as well as a lot of other behind the scenes duties that are related to his business ( you can find out more here about our company, if you’re interested!).
This year we already have quite a bit of travel on the books. This is all new to me because usually when my husband and I travel, it’s been for a vacation. Obviously, my husband has done a LOT of business travel in his line of work. And our children are all quite good travelers
In fact, our daughter works as a bush guide in South Africa at Toro River Lodge! If you’ve ever wanted to go to SA, I can highly recommend this particular private lodge and the entire “African Dream Safari” experience. (More to come on that later this year!)
So while travel is certainly nothing new for us…..business travel is new to me.
This year we are traveling for business and attempting to squeeze in a little relaxation at the same time. And to be quite honest, this has set my mind reeling. Obviously, our travel schedule will be much tighter than usual, but I’m really trying to figure out the packing sitch!
In a few
Do you and/or your spouse travel for business? For pleasure? Have you ever tried to mix the two? It will either be brilliant or a complete disaster that we can’t wait to return home from!
I’m working feverishly to get things planned and make sure we’ve covered all of our bases for work- and THEN I’ll try to work on squeezing in a bit of down time. But as I wrestle with this packing bit, I’d love to hear any suggestions that you may have regarding packing. Particularly for a multi country trip. Anything at all that you’ve found helpful in the planning? I’m sure I’ll be returning to this as our trips get closer. Thanks so much for reading, sharing and commenting! You are all seriously, the best!
Until next time lovelies!

Lovely to see these photos! We want to go to Switserland next year! And my sister is going to SA next month!
Thank you Nancy! Switzerland is our favorite place to visit hands down. 🙂 Tell your sister NOT to hold the Gaboon Viper! 😀
What an adventuresome family! I love all your pictures and gosh would love to travel more! You are going to have so much fun and what a great way to fit in some fun trips!
