Loren is a contributing travelbee and a former U.S.-diplomat turned travel writer and mom to three tireless, hilarious little people. After nearly a decade in the U.S. State Department, Loren resigned in 2011 and began sharing her passion for family travel to wonderful, kid-friendly destinations by writing for Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia
, New York Times
, CNN Travel
, and other online and written publications. In 2017, she started her own luxury family travel blog, Rise and Explore,
to inspire others to travel the world with their families.
Loren's husband, Walter, is a U.S. Foreign Service officer and they are fortunate enough to move to a new country every 2-3 years with their three children Logan (2010), Kate (2012), and Ivy (2014). There is nothing they love more than experiencing new places and spending time with family and friends. Travel allows them to do both. Some of their favorite family travel destinations are Argentina, Thailand, Spain (Mallorca), Ireland, and Australia.
