Hey there! The Hattebergs is our name- Luke, Abby, and our two little ladies right there, and traveling with kids is our game.
We’re pretty passionate about living minimally so that we can experience more…which is what really brings us the most life, right?!
Less stuff, more LIFE.
So we’re all about traveling with these babes any chance we get…and doing so without breaking the bank (because let’s be honest family travel isn’t cheap amirite?!)
Between both of us we’ve lived in Italy for a year, taken an epic summer backpacking trip across Europe with only a tent and $800 in hand (can you guess which one of us that was?!), served for a summer in Barcelona, and visited countless countries.
But to be honest?
Parenting is the most thrilling, unexpected, and JOY filled adventure we have ever been on. Some people may think we are crazy for taking our kids across the Atlantic (if you haven’t read about our epic trip to Italy with a toddler and baby, it’s a must read here), but we say hey, parenting is challenging no matter where you are, so we might as well be somewhere on our bucket list, right?
There will always be meltdowns, whining is inevitable, and most likely there will be a disaster of some sort at the worst possible time…but traveling with kids with always be worth it.
Give us getting lost wanderings over a perfectly scripted itinerary, a charcuterie picnic over a fancy 5 star restaurant, and a kitchen dance party with our girls over all the “stuff” in the world. We believe in investing in experience when it really matters and that less is always so much more.
For now, we are traveling with kids as often as our wallets allow and run our small business, Wayfaren, here in Dallas, TX. Our hope is to create beautifully designed keepsakes for the modern traveler, to hold onto your greatest adventures and dream up new ones every day.
We have found such joy in this life-giving adventure we are on. Each day, this life is a gift – to do something you love, with the ones you love. We try not to take this privilege lightly, and hope in return we can in some small way bless each and every person that crosses our path.
