I wanted to remind everyone of the upcoming Family Travel for Real Life conference, which is taking place this weekend in Washington DC.  I am actually speaking, so that’s an ADDED bonus for why you should be interested!  Tickets are already sold out, but I will (once again!) be live blogging the conference.

Here is the schedule:

Saturday October 24th, 2015 (times are approximate – blog posts should hopefully be posted within a few minutes after the end of the session)

How am I going to live-blog while simultaneously presenting?  Uhhhhh yeah still working on that one 😛

If you want to see what else is going on, you can also follow the #FT4RL hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.  I know I’ll be hashtagging as I travel.  I’m getting excited as we’ve already seen updates from people traveling to the conference from as far as Tokyo!

Check back throughout the weekend and definitely on Saturday morning and afternoon to Points With a Crew as I live-blog the conference and for those of you who will be in attendance, I’ll see you soon!
