Kendal is a professional freelancer, a travel writer, a wanderer, a seeker of continuous change and growth, an amateur ballerina, a wife, a mother, and a friend.
She was consumed by wanderlust back in 2012 when she met her husband Clifton. He took her on several whirlwind getaways and they haven’t stopped adventuring together since. Kendal fell for a free-spirited, eternally optimistic military man and they are now raising two young sons together, partaking in family jaunts at every opportunity.
After graduating from college with a marketing and international studies degree, Kendal worked in finance before moving to Austin, Texas, to raise her firstborn. A year spent traveling and exploring the South with an infant really sealed the deal – traveling with her children is what she truly loves to do. The quality time and experiences shared as a family proved to also be the very best way to educate their children about the world around them.
As their trips began to expand and multiply, so did their worldview. Kendal began blogging extensively for Bébé Voyage in early 2017 and contributing to a series of family-friendly travel guides. She was thrilled to find a community of globetrotting families whose travels incited her bucket list to grow even longer.
Kendal and her family value: cooking as a way of showing love, getting lost in places they’ve never been, the belief that less is actually more, quality is more important than quantity, vintage is often better than new, friends who feel like family, being kind to the environment, and that this big beautiful world is meant to be experienced.
