Introducing Vacation Mavens – a Family Travel Podcast

What began as a sliver of an idea in my mind, has officially launched today! It should come as no surprise that someone who writes a blog called Stuffed Suitcase likes to travel and talk travel. And now my love of sharing great travel advice and family vacation information has a new outlet, the Vacation Mavens family travel podcast!

This adventure is not one I’m doing alone either, my friend and fellow travel blogger Tamara from We3Travel had joined me to bring together some of our friends and colleagues to chat all about travel destinations and tips to get you heading out the door to explore.

Each week we’re reaching into the family travel expert field and chatting with guests who are sharing their best kept secrets about specific destinations, and tips that will help make your travel smoother. We’ve got great plans in mind and you don’t want to miss one episode!

Just look at the amazing interviews we already have featured! Dia from The Deal Mommy talked with us about travel hacking and ways to take family vacations for free, Mary from The World is a Book shared her itinerary ideas for visiting San Diego with kids. Each week we’ll bring you new destination information and expert tips for traveling with kids. Please join us!
