"Get out and explore the world together as a family!"

About Our Site

Family in Faraway Places shows families that they can continue to travel, even with kids! We encourage travelers with kids to step outside the traditional resorts targeted at families and to get out and explore together. Currently the focus of Family in Faraway Places is on countries in Asia.

About Us

Jessica (from Canada) and Danny (from the Philippines) have been living, and working in South Korea for more than a decade now. During this time we have established strong ties in the expat communities here and have traveled around the region extensively with our son. From the time our son was 8 months to 4.5 years old we visited 11 countries as a family. In the spring of 2018 we will be making a move to British Columbia, Canada.

A trained photographer and published writer, Jessica draws from her past experience as the Executive Editor of what was the largest English news magazine in South Korea.

Danny contributes to the execution and planning of our trips, and since he speaks 6 languages he often serves as our translator. He also lends his expertise as a Head Chef. He has worked in the restaurant industry in Korea, Philippines and Japan and has done additional studies in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and India. We are always on the lookout for some great local food!

Our son is along for the ride and helps to add to the wonder and excitement of exploring a new place.
