Speaking Engagements

Rob and Daria deliver practical seminars on how to travel based on their experiences taking on the world with their sometimes reluctant kids.

  • Ever dreamed of taking an extended trip? Think it’s too daunting? Rob and Daria traveled the world with their children for a year. They will share their insight into planning a multi-month trip, including visas, insurance, financing, and travel apps. But they will also highlight tips, tricks and unique strategies that will keep you on the road longer or even indefinitely, along with the lasting benefits of such an experience.

  • Rob and Daria share insights about the impact traveling the world for a year with their young children had on their own lives and the fabric of their family. They structure their talk into the biggest Lessons they learned and why they think everyone should do this.

  • Daria is available for readings and presentations that are engaging and energetic. She instructs a variety of writing workshops and has taught at Red River College, Manitoba Association of Teachers of English, McNally Robinson Booksellers and in several school divisions. Please contact for:
