Passports or Pass with Kaylie and Taran

Kaylie and family.

Welcome back to our travel game show, Passports or Pass, on Weekend Travel Inspiration, where we interview travel bloggers and travel experts from around the globe! This episode we delve into the intrepid minds of Kaylie and Taran, a family from New Zealand that has loved traveling all over Europe for the last four years while they have been living in Dresden, Germany. Kaylie runs the family travel blog, Happiness Travels Here, and highlights how to keep traveling with children of all ages

Will Kaylie and Taran Pass our Travel Companion Game Show Test?

Happiness travels here, family travel expert, Kayli.

Four years ago, Taran followed his job and the family moved to Europe. At the time, their oldest was only three years old and his sister an infant. They have really taken advantage of the centrality of Germany by traveling to over 25 countries in that four years. They slowed down long enough for us to meet up with them and run them through the Passports or Pass challenge. Will they get their passports, or should it have been a pass?

If anyone knows the ins and outs of travel with kids, it’s Kaylie. Be sure and stop by their site to check it out.

  1. What a great idea for a game show. Loved the interview and I’m going to have to check out which other bloggers you’ve interviewed on your YouTube channel. I’m genuinely curious who would get their passports.

  2. That’s the biggest advantage of staying in the heart of Europe. Kaylie and Taran managed to explore over 25 countries in four years! Great interview and using the video mode really pushed it up several notches too.

      I still feel like there is still so much we haven’t seen, Europe has been such an amazing base for us to travel from.

  3. ha ha…. Loved the interview format.
    I would splurge on wine when I travel too, so I can relate. I admire that you travel with 2 kids and covered 70 countries between both of you. Kudos!!

      I was a bit nervous about the video but it was really great fun. Glad to hear I’m not the only one splurging on wine!

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed your segment Passports or Pass. Nice idea.
    Germany is, I think a best option for families to settle and to explore Europe.

  5. Great game! I love the fact that they don’t always have to travel with each other. My wife and I are they same way. There are times when I have to work and she goes on a trip without me. I think that solo travel is actually really great for a relationship.

      I’m finding that it is getting easier as they get older as well, enjoy your adventures with your 5 year old.
