WanderMom | Michelle Duffy
Who: Michelle Duffy, mom of two, Seattle, Washington
Why we love this site: Irish-born Duffy is a straight shooter and lays out all kinds of interesting travel tales and tips for the budget-conscious explorer. You won’t find hotel or restaurant reviews (she opts for apartments and cooks herself), but you will be totally inspired by her family’s ongoing “world trip.” From exploring Ecuador on horseback to skiing in Japan to journeying in Uzbekistan, their adventures may make you rethink booking a plain old cruise for your family’s next trip. Get great book recommendations, her picks for kid-sized backpacks, and her choices for entertaining, hand-held video games (she’s not proud of this, but hey, she’s a realist).
