Hi! I’m Stephanie Taleghani, and I am from Cincincinnati, OH. My husband, Afshin and daughter Sophie make up our small traveling family. I gave up the whirlwind of sales and marketing for the chaos of full-time stay at home motherhood. My husband Afshin is a NICU clinical pharmacist at a local hospital. Sophie is almost 2 years old and is such an adventurous and curious child that she keeps us on our toes.
What is the passion that drives you to collect adventures?
Our mission is to motivate families to collect moments and not things. We love to explore places off the beaten path that will spark your curiosity and provide inspiration for families wanting to travel with kids. Finding great family-friendly destinations and activities drives us to collect adventures.
How did you discover this passion?
I have had a love of travel from a young age, and I wanted to instill that same love in my daughter. Traveling teaches you things that you can’t learn in books and an appreciation for different cultures, traditions, and beliefs.
What is your favorite memory from one of your adventures?
My favorite memories are often the quiet ones that you sit back and reflect on. Watching my daughter dance through the sand and surf during a beautiful sunset, or rocking on the front porch of a cottage while the crisp mountain air fills your lungs. These are my most treasured memories.
If you could give someone advice about pursuing their passions and collecting adventures, what would it be?
You only have been given one life to live, so go. Go on that adventure, go on that trip, go meet that friend. Just go, because the clock is still going and isn’t waiting for you.
If you could travel anywhere in the world with no budget restraints, where would you go and why?
I would hike the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. Then venture down into Chile to see the Torres del Paine National Park and then catch a boat to see the Moai on Easter Island.
What are 3-5 MUST HAVE items you always pack when traveling?
- Sound Machine-for the baby
- Sewing Kit
- Wellness/Sick Kit
- Sophie’s Lovie
What are 5 fun facts or quirks that not many people know about you?
- I used to write murder mystery parties.
- During my pregnancy, the mere thought of travel made me nauseous. I couldn’t watch it on TV, talk about it or even think about it!
- I am slightly obsessed with Halloween.
- Chicken wings and beer will always get me out of the house.
- I have a passion for those with dementia and for families who have to go through the pain of having a loved one with dementia.
