Story of My Life (in a Nutshell)

Wendyintuscany
That's me and the kids in Tuscany during the grape harvest 3 years ago.

by Wendy Perrin

If you'd like to know my answers to the following questions . . .

1. How did you get your start as a travel writer?

2. How did you start blogging?

3. Have you had mentors, and how did they help you?

4. Is there one article or accomplishment you are most proud of?

5. Why do you think there are so few women in visible positions in this industry?

6. Do you think that being one of the few prominent women travel writers gives you a different perspective?

7. How did having kids change your career path? Were there things you gave up, or did you change your focus?

8. How do you balance the need to be on the road with the need to spend time with your family?

9. What is your favorite travel memory with your kids?

10. What do you hope that your children learn from their travel experiences?

. . . then click over to Delicious Baby, the great blog written by longtime Conde Nast Traveler subscriber Debbie Dubrow, who has published an interview with yours truly.

great interview! Hopefully it inspired every true writer out there!

Great interview! I'm completely on the same page with the type-A travel, which is why, on an upcoming trip, I'm scheduling myself for 15 hour days. I admire your fortitude-adventurous spirit-bravery for traveling with kids across the world. I hope that grows on me for my future family travels! Right now, all I can seem to manage are nonstop flights to visit family.

Wow, what a great picture! I have a thing for grapes and kids. ;) Love it and I really enjoyed the interview too!!

Thanks for sharing.

What gorgeous kids!
