My munchkins ages range between 3-14 years old and while they keep me hecka busy I still can’t shake my main passion in life… Traveling the Globe! So, I pack ’em all up and drag them along for the ride.

When we are not traveling we are hanging out in beautiful Southern CA. We live in a wonderful suburb located between Los Angeles and San Diego. We love spending time together, baking and cheering on our favorite sports teams (SF 49ers, Clippers, Kings and Angels).

I started this blog as a way to document our travels & inspire others to get out there and create memories with their kids as well. I also love sharing recipes, fashion and other fun things I find online or out there in the world!!!

What I never anticipated was that I would meet tons of like minded individuals and friends- that’s YOU!  I love connecting with people who share my passions.  So, I would be so honored if you would follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Let’s connect and get to know each other!!

Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my e-newsletter that way you will never miss a post or giveaway!!!

xoxo,

Amber (aka Mama Munchkin)

 Meet the Team

As John Wooden once said, “If you want to go fast… go alone. If you want to go far, you need a team.”

Clearly in travel going far is really what it is all about. And, because I can’t be everywhere all of the time I have a fantastic team behind me.

Meet Erin- Photographer & Destination Editor

Destination Editor & Photographer

Erin is a former corporate career climber turned professional family photographer. She believes life is way too short to be unhappy and you are never too old (or young!) for adventure. Erin wants to live in a world where frequent vacations are mandatory, laundry folds itself, and people always greet each other with a hug and a smile. She and her husband are currently raising 3 energetic boys in sunny San Diego, CA, but she is constantly dreaming up new trips for them to visit faraway places. When she isn’t photographing her own wild bunch, you will likely find her documenting moments of connection and hilarity for other families in Southern California. Erin’s work has been featured in Red Tricycle, The Village Magazine, 100 Layer Cakelet, and on Ellentv.com.

Meet Danielle- East Coast Destination Editor

Meet Danielle one of the Destination Editors responsible for finding the very best family vacation destinations and activities for Global Munchkins

In 2014, Danielle took her first international trip to Europe. She was mesmerized by the sights, cultures, and people that she met along her adventure. She was so inspired that in 4 short months after her trip, she packed up her life into a suitcase and moved from Southern California to Washington, D.C. Since then, she has checked off 6 more countries and has loved experiencing East Coast life. Whether exploring local attractions near The District,  going on a quick weekend getaway, or planning a long vacation, Danielle is always on the move.

Meet Kelsey- Photographer & Destination Editor

I’m a mother and wife first. Always. I lead a messy and adventurous little life in San Diego with my adorable husband, two boys and baby bean on-the-way. I love the beach, I love traveling, I love good coffee, and I love trader joes. I spent the better part of my 20’s living out of a rucksack and exploring over 50 countries. It was my greatest adventure until momdom and I fully blame my 20’s for my never-ending need for adventure today. You can find me at my happiest when I’m outdoors with my little family, camera and cider in hand.
