Chris is from Boston and is currently living in Rio de Janeiro with his wife, two kids, and their dog, Shelby.

When Chris was in college, he spent a semester abroad studying hotel and business management in Switzerland. That is where he caught the travel bug and met his wife. Quite a successful trip!

Since then, Chris and his wife have lived and worked on three different continents together and travel in search of good food and drinks whenever they have the chance.

From lie-flat beds in the sky and 5-star hotels to lap-children in coach and Airbnbs, Chris tries to maximize every family vacation so that his kids will appreciate the joy of travel just like he does.

Chris funds their family travel addiction with the help of credit card points to make sure that grandparents in each hemisphere get quality time with the kids!
