Katja Gaskell has been published by Lonely Planet, Mr & Mrs Smith, and many other travel publications. She’s moved with her husband and two kids to Mexico City, after living previously in Australia and India – while visiting Sri Lanka, Nepal, New Zealand, Fiji, the United States and much of Europe.

Through all of this she’s become the co-founder and editor of GlobeTotting.com, a web platform, publication, and purveyor of adventurous escapes for families. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of living with nomads in Mongolia or sleeping in the remote hill villages of Vietnam — Globetotting finds and shares the ways you can do this with kids, which can redefine the way you see your travel opportunities should you wake one day with a couple kids running around the house, believing your best travel days are behind you.

A Quick Preview:

  • Katja’s background as a career travel writer and how having kids unexpectedly changed her travel life.
  • Where the idea for Globetotting came from after many adventures with her own kids.
