For our first trip to Africa I knew that we needed immunizations. What I didn't know was where to get them.
The answer: Passport Health.
Passport Health is a clinic that specializes in travel vaccinations and immunizations and they have offices throughout the U.S. They'll tell you what you need and administer it right there in the office. They can also provide antibiotics (in case of a stomach bug), malaria pills and altitude medication.
Your regular doctor or pediatrician will likely not have most of what you need because their volume isn't high enough to stock the meds. That said, take your kids records with you so you don't duplicate anything they already have.
Traveling can be hard on the waistline. Between airplane food, the greasy food sold at most tourist destinations (yes, I mean you dreaded amusement park) and the rich food you get if you're lucky enough to get a sitter and sneak away for a 5-star treat, it's a veritable minefield. So, imagine my excitement when I just read in Fitness Magazine that Kimpton Hotels has started a "Travel Healthy Program." They are featuring low-cal options on the room service menu, on-demand workout videos and yoga instruction on the TV 24/7. Of course, seeing a new city on foot is my favorite form of travel exercise, but it's nice to have options.

I'm a recovering attorney/CEO turned entrepreneur. Before I could travel in style I just traveled, bed bug bites and all.True story. Today, I'm fortunate enough to visit iconic locations and stay in the very best hotels with my husband and son. So, whether you're living the champagne travel reality or just dreaming about it, I'm glad you're here!
