Dana Rebmann refused to believe you have to stop traveling when kids come along. Enduring years of crazy looks from friends and family, she’s crossed the Atlantic a dozen times armed with diapers and peanut butter. The mother of two has successfully passed on the travel bug to her girls (ages 9 and 11). No one in the family even blinked an eye when she bought airplane tickets to Madrid, Spain, instead of Disneyland one night last summer. Dana lives north of San Francisco, so weekends spent enjoying and exploring the Bay Area far outnumber those at home. And though her favorite trips require a passport, she always sets aside time for a summer stint on the Jersey Shore. She writes for 7x7 and Ciao Bambino and you can find her on Twitter @drebmann.
