Meet William (a.k.a. the star of the show)

Hey there world, my name is William, a.k.a. "Tot-n-Tow".  I am almost 2 years old.  In fact, I will celebrate my second birthday on this adventure with my parents.

Me, I like planes, trains, and automobiles, specifically buses.  I was born in Washington, D.C. and have lived there my entire life.  Man I feel old saying that.  Did I mention that I really like buses?  

I live off of a steady diet of carbs and more carbs, with a hit of milk every now and again.  I love cranking up the Raffi while I cruise with my parents in the car, sometimes singing along to my favorite tune, Wheels On The Bus.

I love to travel.  My favorite part of travel is sitting on the plane and watching all of the people outside before and after the flight.  So far, I have visited 10 US states and 12 countries on 2 continents, logging more than 35 flights before this trip.  I can't wait to see and do so many new things with my Dada and Mama on our big adventure together!

FUN TRAVEL FACT: I have a best friend named Milo.  He's a monkey, and he travels with me wherever I go.

who is your daddy, and what does he do?

Hi everyone, my name is Mike, a.k.a. "Dada".  Originally from the one and only Cleveland, Ohio, I moved to the Washington D.C. area when I was 12.  From there, I went back to Ohio to do some learnin at Ohio University, studying Business.  It was here that I met Kiera, my beautiful wife, best friend, travel companion, and all around cool person (just don't ask her for directions).

As a somewhat functioning adult, I am now a consultant who (again) lives in Washington, D.C. (oddly enough, the same place as William, small world right?).

To date, I have traveled to 27 US states and 34 countries on 5 continents. I grew up loving to go new places, see new things, have new experiences.  I especially loved the journey itself,  whether it was by car, bus, train, or plane.  Some of my best travel memories are the times my brother and I spent road tripping with our grandparents facing backwards in the trunk seats of their Chevy Celebrity wagon studying road maps.  Ah, the 80's.

FUN TRAVEL FACT: I was in Ios, Greece on July 4, 2004.  At first that may not seem all that memorable.  But, not only was it July 4th back home, it was also the day of the Euro 2004 Final between Portugal and Greece.  That evening, we watched as the scrappy Greeks did the unthinkable and took down the the mighty Portuguese to win Euro 2004.  Since absolutely no one expected this, it was one of the most insane events I have ever seen, and we celebrated 'murica's birthday and Greece's victory well into the morning.  A day of celebration I will never forget, and will still probably never fully remember.
