Traveling Mamas

Inspiring you to explore our world

  • The Traveling Mamas wish you a safe and Happy New Year! Remember to have fun, but don’t drink and drive.

    Since we’ve got celebrating and alcoholic beverages on the mind(s), we thought we’d close 2008 with a few photos of some of our favorite drinks we’ve sampled on our travels this year. Bottoms up!
