About Two Kids and a Map


We want our children to know that there is adventure around every corner whether that is down the street, across the country or around the world.  We travel on a budget and work hard to make our experiences meaningful to our children. In November of 2012, we relocated from Pensacola, Florida to Denver, Colorado.  Join us as we share tips, tricks and thoughts about our travels.

Where Else Can You Find Me?

From 2009 to November 2012, I created and maintained an award-winning website about exploring Pensacola with your family called Pensacola with Kids (PWK).  Occasionally, you will still see me dropping in to say hello over there.

I am a weekly contributor and Contest Editor at Traveling Mom, a network of over 50 traveling moms that share their stories.  I write as Southern Traveling Mom (soon to be Discovering Colorado TMOM).  Some of my favorite posts include Sandestin Golf and Beach ResortThings to Consider During a Hurricane Evacuation; Security in Disney’s Fantasy Kids Clubs; and Visiting the Southernmost Point in Key West, Florida.
