While on a press trip in 2011 Deb & Kathleen met for the first time and quickly become fast friends. Their love of travel keeps them connected as they share tips, tricks, and the ups and downs of travel with each other and now with you.

A few years later Deb and Tonya met and found they had very similar travel styles with a love for road trips and roadside attractions.

Before long the three travelers were sharing stories of adventures and Wanderlust Moms was born.


Kathleen Life With 4 Boys: Kathleen calls Florida home with her 4 boys, ages 7-12 years old. She took them on a 50 day road trip last summer exploring the Southwest.
