Danny and I are excited to talk travel with you! The whole purpose of this podcast is to present you with information on new and exciting ways to take on family travel. We also hope to tell some stories along the way from families just like yours. 

So, the show notes will not be a verbatim transcription of what’s in each episode. Instead, think of it as the Cliff’s Notes version of the podcast. Some of you may have to google that and that’s ok! =) We’re going to have a lot of fun in this space and we hope you will, too. We know we’re going to goof up from time to time, we hope that you’ll hang in there with us for a while. Please subscribe to the podcast so that you can make sure and get the podcast every other week when they drop!

 Danny and I were in a band together a lifetime ago. Dan is a Spanish teacher and has another podcast and a YouTube channel where he helps people learn Spanish, English, and French. Check him out here. The Language Tutor is also the sponsor of this podcast, so please check him out!

I also want to send a huge thank you to Kevin Gilbert and Koinology for his assistance with our website. Check out Koinology
