About Us

gessell wolitski, lee smith and baby

This blog started as a personal blog for friends and family. However, we noticed after the birth of our daughter how much information was missing in English about traveling in Europe with a baby. This blog is to help other families traveling with a newborn or toddler to learn how to handle it all.

We write about our first hand experiences of traveling Europe with a baby from practical and cultural standpoints. Sometimes it's budget, sometimes it's luxury but it's always about family. This is our take on a "travel with kids blog."

Gessell + Lee is a travel blog of two thirty something American expats living in Amsterdam. After an amazing trip to Scotland, we caught the travel bug. That led to us selling our house, quitting our jobs, and moving across the globe.

Gessell has recently written "Family Friendly Amsterdam: A City Travel Guide" and plans to add more city guides to the series. This book is available through Amazon.com and all other Amazon worldwide websites.
