The idea of a traveling child or traveling with children can seem daunting to some and may make others outright anxious. Traveling should be experienced as early as possible.
As a child, I didn’t travel much. I went on trips here and there but not frequently and not very far. I remember the first time I flew alone. It was the summer after my freshman year of college. I flew to Atlanta to hang out with one of my friends.
I remember telling my mom I wanted to go and asking her if $150 was a good price for a round trip ticket from Jacksonville to Atlanta. She said yes, and I booked it.
Traveling solo was freeing. I started looking for reasons to fly somewhere after that. I loved engaging with people from all over.
Monet is a family travel blogger, freelance travel writer, and author of the children’s book The Traveling Child Goes to Rio de Janeiro. In addition to her own blog The Traveling Child, she is a contributor for The Points Guy and Essence.com, The Traveling Child, inspires parents to travel the world with their kids while providing tips to make it easier and affordable.
Her motto is “if kids live there, kids can visit” and you’ll often find her family exploring destinations most don’t consider “kid friendly”.
Monet graduated from the University of Florida and went on to earn her Masters Degree from Georgetown University. Currently, she and her family resides in South Florida. Having Jamaican roots, she’s kind of an expert in beautiful beaches and you can often find her family sitting on one!

Monet and I have known each other for about 13 years and it’s been so great to see her evolve into a wife, mom, business owner, and travel influencer. I absolutely love her brand. She does an excellent job showing her audience how easy and convenient traveling can be not just for individuals but for families as well.
