My name is Julia Dimon. I’m a family travel expert, on-camera travel TV host, travel blogger and hard-core travel junkie who’s traveled around the world to over 80 countries, across all seven continents. Host of the TV series Word Travels, broadcast on National Geographic Adventure and Travel Channel UK across over 100 countries and 21 languages, I’ve had some pretty amazing adventures as a solo female around the world– from hiking with mountain gorillas in Uganda, to touring radioactive Chernobyl, camel trekking through the Middle East, to devouring live slugs and deep-fried bugs in jungles and back alleys across the globe. My experiences led me to write the book “Travel Junkie: A Badass Guide to Solo Female Travel” to empower other young women to ditch the 9-5 grind, explore the world and find themselves.
And now for the next chapter…the biggest adventure of all. Parenthood. Mama of two munchkins aged 3 and 5, my thirst for exotic adventures hasn’t died just because I’m a mom. My goal is to continue exploring the world, now with my little travel junkies in-tow. But let’s be honest…between tantrums and time outs, traveling with a baby or toddler is not always easy. This site aims to empower other mamas with tips and tricks when traveling with their own young families. I hope to be an example of how life after children can still be filled with luxury and adventure in unexpected places.
