Jennifer M. Nichols and her husband, Bill, believe in global family travel. In fact, once their children were born they gave each one a three-month respite, then bundled them up to travel across continents and oceans. Now teenagers, these two children have journeyed to 27 countries on 5 continents, and have participated in safaris, animal treks, sports adventures, historical trips, eco-tourism, camping, cruises, hiking, farm holidays, visits to indigenous cultures . . . and just relaxing. These traveling children provided their mother with broad-based experiences of the rigors, challenges, and joys of traveling with children.
