Veronique Autphenne was raised on three continents and has had a passion for travel ever since she can remember. She has always preferred traveling “off the beaten path,” and, while her travel plans have changed slightly since she became the mother of three boys, she has found that traveling with children can be just as rewarding and enriching and is always an adventure. Parenthood is a universally shared experience so traveling with children has allowed her to make different, and often deeper, connections with people of all ages. She is co-founder of the blog, www.alloverthemap.net, about experiential travel for families. She and her family have lived in Alexandria for the past ten years.
