We didn’t pack this Festival with big named influencers and internet celebs, we packed it with every day moms like YOU who have lived abroad with their families. 

Nothing against influencers, in fact we love travel influencers and internet celebs just as much as anyone else. But this time around, we wanted to bring to you some moms who are just like you and who happened to have been able to make their dream of living abroad a reality!
