I’m a travel blogger, so obviously I am obsessed with travel. But what you may not know is I’m also obsessed with making lists. I feel like most travelers are list makers in some respect. One of the best parts of a trip for me is the planning phase. This is when I go list crazy. Lists of where I want to go, what I want to see, cool places to eat, websites to check out, and on and on.

This is where Listography comes in. Listography is a website, app and an amazing Listography series of books. Before Listography I would write lists on random pieces of paper and then promptly lose them. Now, thanks to Listography, I have an awesome app and website to store all of my lists in one place.

What are kid friendly destinations?

One of my fellow family travel bloggers posted a question on their Facebook page a while back asking where people thought of when they thought of kid friendly destinations.
