Big Brave Nomad is a family travel website & blog run by myself, Tavia.  I am committed to bringing you up-to-date advice from parents who have previously Braved the skies, roads or trains.  All of our guest Bloggers will have their own individual experiences and that's what makes Big Brave Nomad different.  As parents, your experience won't be exactly the same as mine, so having a variety of views is important to me.   I am a mother to two precious, chubby kids.  Charletta, my daughter, is 4 and Latham, my son, is 2!  I have been married for eight and a half wonderful years to my main squeeze and military man, Jimmy.  I started my adult life as an officer in United States Air Force where I served 5 amazing years.  During my service, I was able to travel the world and meet so many people.  After my second deployment we got pregnant.  While pregnant, we found out that our daughter had some medical issues and once she was born, we realized that daycare wouldn't be an option.  So, I left my career to stay home and care for our daughter.  Over the past 3 years we have traveled to 22 countries and 25 states with our kids in tow.  I have always loved to travel, but now that I have two little Nomads to share it all with, I love it even more.  I hope this site helps you Brave the skies (and roads) and I can't wait to see where life takes you.
