Hello and welcome aboard, I’m Rana Makki!

I’m a stay-at-home mom of two girls, and married to an amazing man who I sometimes consider my third child. We live in the southeast region of the Mitten State, otherwise known as Michigan. We love to travel often, hence the blog name, and I’m sometimes known to be planning our next adventure even before our current flight has landed.

When I’m not mommying my imperfectly behaved angels by land, air, or sea I can be found with a notebook and pen and hand, scribbling away my next writing idea. This blog is a product of one of those ideas, as a platform for other parents to gain positive insight about the world of family travel and other parent happenings. Often I present to you our own mistakes (so you don’t make them yourself), and how we learned and perfected them along the way, to make coexisting and traveling with kids easy(er!) and fun(ish!).

While this blog’s suitcase is filled primarily with posts on family travel, other topics are strewn in as well such as general lifestyle and parenting hacks and happenings, education related content as I’m a former elementary and writing teacher, funny parenting tidbits, and a few odds and ends needed for this adventure called #parentlife.

So I invite you to fasten your seatbelt and enjoy reading my blog, helping to return your ‘grown-up sanity’ to its upright position where it belongs. And remember, when necessary, do so in airplane mode.
