Britni Vigil, Toddler TravelingMom

Britni grew up in a fun-loving family that went to amusement parks on the weekends and played games at night. From canyoning in Switzerland to sky-diving over the Las Vegas airfields, Britni’s best memories are from family adventures together. Those memories have inspired Britni’s love of travel and desire to find the most unique and memorable things to do in every destination she visits. She is also the mom of a toddler boy and while her travels have changed, she now just finds memorable things to do with a toddler as well instead of focusing on adult-friendly activities. Britni shares her daily adventures at home and abroad at Play.Party.Plan., a blog full of ideas to have more fun every day including family travel tips, fun activities to do at home, or even simple recipes to make and enjoy together.
