Jenss Family Travel | Rainer Jenss
- #5 Well-Written
Who: Rainer Jenss, father of two, New York
Why we love this site: The Jenss family travelogue is part of National Geographic’s Intelligent Travel site and features such far-flung adventures as dog-sledding in Canada and scuba diving in Palau (21 hours of flight time from NYC – this one was deemed “a bear”). As the former publisher of National Geographic for Kids and a dad of two boys, Jenss has a great sense for what parents are looking for in a vacation and what kids of all ages will actually enjoy. In addition to “extreme” travel, he also writes about everyday excursions to nearby Lake Placid, NY, and trips to see the fantastic Christmas Lights in Dyker Heights, Queens.
