We are a family traveling the world with our 2.5 year old son. Our lives have fundamentally changed when he was born. We realised that life means much more than a pay-check, performance evaluations and happy customers. We got to know the simple way of living, the small things that make you happy, the joy of living each day to the fullest. In our research on how to have a happy kid, we also found the kids within us, buried deep in our souls by deadlines and social norms, who wanted to escape, be happy, be free… So we took a break from our “normal” busy lives to focus more on a new beginning in three.
In June 2018, we embarked on a big adventure around the world. We’ve already seen extraordinary places and plan do discover many more in the following months, as we wander through the Caribbeans, South America and South-East Asia.
Alina – Finance professional with 10 years multinational experience, turned into full time traveler by the desire to enjoy everything life has to offer. Alina is responsible for writing and all the communication & PR for The Happy Kid.
Andrei – Entrepreneur by nature, dentist by profession, Andrei ran his own business in the medical field for 8 years. Left it all to travel because life is to short to live in one place only. Andrei is responsible for the photo and video content for The Happy Kid and for most of the crazy ideas.
Eric – young & restless toddler, he is the core of The Happy Kid, the reason the whole thing started. He was happy to visit 15 countries so far and plans to have a passport full of stamps by the time he starts school.

We would love some feedback from you! Feel free to share with us similar experiences you had or ideas about what you would like to read more here. Please check for more information to see how we can work together.
