Childless and childfree women come in lots of shapes and sizes. We are all colors, all cultures, and all ages. As much as we have in common, we are also very different. Some people say it is strange to define ourselves by things that we are not, so let’s determine what we are instead.
In this series, childfree blogger Laura LaVoie interviews women bloggers without children who answer the question, “If you’re not a Mom, then what are you?”
This month we had the pleasure of speaking with Whitney Clem of Childfree Life Adventures, a travel blog inspired by her own childfree lifestyle. On the site, Whitney shares stories of wandering adventures with her husband, childfree resources, and inspiration. Travel is truly her passion, and she encourages women and couples without children to pursue it regularly.
What inspired you to write a travel blog from a specific childfree perspective?
There are a ton of travel blogs out there. You kind of need to have a specific perspective–backpacking on a shoestring, travel with kids, travel in a specific part of the world, etc. My husband Paddy and I also have full time jobs and can’t travel all the time.
So,we decided to make our blog about our adventures as a childfree couple. Travel is the main focus, but we also blog about our other adventures in cooking, baking, crafts, home improvement, and other things. All of the adventures and things that we love to do that we feel like we wouldn’t always have time or money for if we had small children.
