HI, I’M NICCI O’MARA
I’m the Founder of Travel with Boys, Director of On the Map Communication, and mother to two energetic and wonderful boys aged 8 and 10. In between the dirty clothes, endless cooking, and breaking up wrestling matches, I write about amazing places to discover with boys and how to keep sane doing it.
I caught the travel bug at age 11 after travelling around Europe with my family of six, and have gone on to travel throughout 23 countries, before getting married to my patient husband.
Since the boys arrival, we have made a point of trying to live a life less ordinary by getting out of our comfort zone and travelling as much as we can throughout Australia, Europe and the USA, in-between holding down full-time jobs and school.
My idea behind launching Travel with Boys was simple. I was frustrated with the huge amount of time it would take to wade through destination information that was so general in nature, it was hard to know whether it was suitable. Families of boys need space to move inside and out, minimal objects to break, good food options and a bit of risk aversion on the side.
We are lucky to live in the sunny state of Queensland in Australia, which is the ultimate place to explore with boys, with its beautiful beaches, amazing outback, and stunning mountains and forests. The people are great too!
SO WHERE HAVE I BEEN?
I have visited every state and territory in Australia; safaried in Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and Botswana; lived and worked in England; and travelled around Italy, Denmark, Scotland, Ireland, France, Monaco, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Netherlands, Czech Republic, and Singapore; and to California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Colarado, Oregon, Washington State, Louisiana, Massachusetts and New York in the USA. And there are plenty more places yet to discover!
