Welcome! My name is Christine and I’m so grateful you’re here!

Are you looking for family-friendly activities whether here in the USA or abroad?

Are you overwhelmed by the idea of planning a vacation?

Is Disney on your radar?

If you nodded your head yes to any of the above questions, you are in the right place!

Hi, my name is Christine Zelina. As a mom, I realize how each day with your child is precious.  I want to spend as much time as I can with my daughter (Little K).  I also love to travel. Our life now revolves around both. In fact, we probably travel MORE now with our daughter than before.

Yes, traveling with kids can be done. Let me show you how.

If you have dreamt of taking your child to Disney (whether that’s Disney World, Disneyland or a Disney Cruise), you will find plenty of tips and suggestions!

What about international travel to Europe? We have a number of posts on popular European destinations that make for wonderful family travel. Think of the memories!

The USA has beautiful places as well whether that’s national parks or large cities. We have you covered.

If you live or are traveling to Ohio, check out the posts specifically to that region – where I grew up and lived for most of my life. The Ohio State and National Parks rank among the best!

Don’t put off travel because you don’t think your kids are old enough. I’m here to help you see the possibilities. Did you know that Disney is free for kids under 3?

I’m here to help you realize your dream of traveling with your family. You never know what’s around the corner so take advantage of time NOW. Not later.  


I caught the travel bug at a young age as I was lucky enough to travel internationally to Europe twice while I was in high school. Boy was I was hooked.

It escapes me how many times I have been to Europe, it’s more than 10. Even my daughter has been there at least 3 times. I think she may have inherited my love of travel!

The cobblestone streets, the history, the cafes… all of it just beckons to me. So much so that I want to move to Europe, if even for a year.

But, my heart is with Disney, too!

I started collecting princess items before I was even pregnant. Who knows what I would have done with them if I had a boy.

There is something about Disney that draws me back again and again. I think, in a sense, it is a real Fantasyland. A place to escape. My daughter and I visit Disney yearly, sometimes twice a year. It holds a special place in my heart and one we can truly enjoy together.

Truthfully, I could not travel to all of these places if it wasn’t for travel hacking. Miles and points have been a part of my life since the late 90’s. Although I don’t write much about the credit card game of collecting miles and points, it’s how we can afford to travel so often. It’s how I do Disney on a budget so often. Miles and points afford me the opportunity to travel to places I otherwise could only dream of such as Asia.

So, while I don’t actively write how I get to places, I do highlight the family-friendly activities at each destination we visit. 

My husband, Kevin, enjoys travel almost as much as I do.  He willingly lets me plan our trips and jokes that he is there just to carry the luggage and kill bugs. Well, someone has to do it…
