About Travis

A Los Angeles-based family- and adventure-travel expert, Travis spent years working on charter boats and living on tropical islands before settling with his family in Southern California, where he writes for a variety of magazines and websites. He believes children are never too young to travel–or learn to swim–and his favorite job is teaching his kids a love of exploration, from the California backcountry to the islands of the South Pacific.
