We are a family of four who loves to eat, drink, parent, educate and travel as a family and with friends. We don’t really look at our travels as vacations but as creating memorable experiences to cherish. We absolutely love exploring the world with our children to expose them to the wonders of this world. We didn’t want to have our kids live in the LA bubble but realize how people all over the world live, eat, and celebrate life.

People always ask us how we travel with our two kids and still manage to have adult fun. Parents are always telling us that they can’t do the things they used to because of their kids. Parents are always asking us how we still manage to travel as much as we do while taking our kids with us. How do your kids travel so well? How do you manage to have so many people join you on your travels? How do you seems to find deals all the time? How do you find all these cool things to do?

We want to answer all your questions and help you and your family find that way to do it all! Please enjoy, please comment, please share, and please book that ticket and Join Our Vida Loca!!

    We went to Portugal, Greece, and Turkey during the Delta Variant. What did we deal with?

    So we finally traveled to Portugal, Greece, and Turkey during the rise of the Covid-19 Delta Variant. A few obstacles popped up, and we will tell you how we dealt with them.  Were we nervous? Did we throw caution to the wind? Did we wear masks? How was it getting tested in Europe?  We hope this helps with your travel plans.

Hi guys!!

Mike & Vanessa,
I finally got around to listening to your first podcast about your grand adventure & I have to say... this. Is. So. Awesome!!!! And Mike, when you mentioned about fear keeping you from seeing the beauty in life (totally paraphrasing), that hit home. I’m booking my cruise & Mexico tickets now!! Everything else will fall into place. Thanks for the encouragement! And I love watching your family go on this adventure. Keep the podcasts coming. ~Cori

Awesome show

It’s fun following this lovely family’s adventures. The podcast is funny because Mr. Lopez annoys the heck out of his wife and they kind of love/hate each other. Real life!
