We are the Jordans, Kevin, Lynn, Max, Riley and Luke. We live in suburb of Washington, DC, and travel way more than the average family.
Lynn is the planner and driving force behind all this travel. She has an insatiable wanderlust, and somehow manages to schedule way more trips than she should every year. Fortunately, she is a points and miles junkie, and manages to figure out how to make nearly all of the flights and accommodations free. She loves planning the trips just as much as going, and is just as happy planning trips for friends and family as she is planning her own.
Kevin isn’t quite as in love with globetrotting as Lynn is, but has really come around and enjoys the trips. Although he wouldn’t mind a few more weekends at home. Kevin and Lynn are fortunate in that they have flexible jobs that allow for some work away from the office.
Max is a college student. He is a Disneyophile and his ideal vacation is at the Mouse’s House. He likes to travel other places, but doesn’t love it. However, he is in fierce competition with Luke to visit the most states in the U.S.
Riley is in high school. A classic middle child, he is enjoying his current status as “oldest brother” at home. Riley has always been a homebody, and actively dislikes traveling. He does love rollercoasters, though, and trips involving animals.
Luke, the youngest, is also in high school. He shares his mom’s passion for traveling, although only if it involves a rollercoaster, water slide, or other adrenaline-inducing activity. His favorite part of vacationing is the food. He also very much likes checking states and countries off his Been app, and his life’s goal is to get to more places than Max. So far, he is winning.
