Welcome to We3Travel, an award-winning travel blog! I’m Tamara and I believe that you shouldn’t just take a vacation, you should experience it. I love experiencing a destination through its food, culture, history, and outdoor adventures. You will find me traveling the world or exploring nearby New England, both on my own and with my family. Our family of three is exploring the world one trip at a time from our home base in Rhode Island.
Tamara is a former marketing executive and obsessive travel planner. Glenn is a digital strategist for a large consulting firm and a future sommelier. Hannah is a soon-to-be astrophysics student who loves soft adventure. I am always on the hunt for cheap international flights, but we also love road trips, National Parks, and discovering hidden gems in nearby New England.
When Glenn can’t tag along, Hannah and I head out on mother-daughter trips that usually involve some sort of adventure or an epic road trip.
We believe that family travel strengthens our bonds and creates long-lasting memories. It has also helped us raise an empowered, resilient teen girl who is open to new experiences and cares deeply about our world and other people.
We love finding emerging destinations, having cultural/educational experiences, adventuring outside together, and exploring a destination through its food. We hope you will follow along!
How I Can Help You
I’m an obsessive travel planner that spends an insane amount of time researching and creating our itineraries to ensure the smoothest trip possible. After all, fun trips mean a happy family and great memories! And that is the goal, right? Enjoying your time together instead of stressing over logistics?
On We3Travel you will find a combination of tips, reviews, destination guides, and sample itineraries for travel with teens and tweens. We can’t always travel as a family so you will also find suggestions for mother-daughter trips, girlfriend getaways, and parent escapes.
Where You Can Find More
I also write about solo female travel, romantic getaways, girls’ trips, and life after 40 over on my sister site, YourTimetoFly.com. I am also a member of the Family Travel Association and the Society of American Travel Writers. In fact, We3Travel received the Bronze Lowell Thomas Award from the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation for Best Travel Blogs in 2019.
How We Afford to Travel
It is common in the travel industry to accept complimentary or hosted accommodations, meals, tickets, and tours in exchange for an honest review. Sometimes, brands or destinations will even pay for travel writers to visit a destination and create content about the experience — from videos, photos, or articles.
From time to time, we do accept both of these arrangements to help cover my expenses as a travel writer, and they are always fully disclosed in the coverage. We strive to be unbiased and look at things from an objective perspective whether we are hosted, paid, or paying full price.
In fact, it is more typical that we are traveling on our own using a combination of points and cash just like you. Luckily, I am also able to earn a living from this blog through a combination of advertising revenue, affiliate commissions, and marketing campaigns.
