Episode 102: See the World with New Eyes with Carmen Sagnonvi

One Episode 102 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Carmen Sognonvi, founder and publisher of the beautiful and information-rich online destination for luxury family travel, Top Flight Family, shares her belief in traveling with kids. Carmen joins Tesi and Leslie in a discussion of the eye-opening power of traveling with children (whether abroad or in your own state/country), the sense of adventure and curiosity travel nurtures, and the value of time spent together outside your everyday environment. The women reflect on the beauty of exploring different places, people, and culture with kids in tow, discuss the practical tips for making it happen, and dive into the layers of race, gender, economic privilege, and family make-up in the travel sphere.

The women also dive into:

  • The biggest mistakes parents make when traveling with kids, and how to avoid them
  • How families can travel in luxury without the luxury price tag
  • Why co-host Leslie shouldn’t feel shame over having never gone to Disney, and the place of Disney in the American traveler perspective
