About Five Pax

Hello there, we’re the Barons, welcome to Five Pax!

Five Pax is a weekly updated blog about family travel and everyday moments of our lives as an endlessly on-the-go family of 5. We are everyday folks with day jobs juggling the beautiful insanity of raising three kids in New York City, a cultural world away from the midwest where we were born and raised. We are excited to share with you our stories and lessons we are learning along the way in our endless quest to maximize our kids’ exposure to culture, history, and nature across the U.S. and around the world! But we won’t be doing it alone. To ensure we are giving you an honest and complete picture of our adventures and the locations we explore, we will be tapping into our incredible network of friends and family for their insights and tips from their own backyards.

A bit more about us:

Mike, “the dad”, is a software engineering director at NYU, lover of pizza and Cleveland sports, the master planner behind our adventures and the photographer behind the camera.  Mike works closely with the study abroad and portal campuses so he has traveled a bit for work and has a great network of friends around the globe that we tap into frequently for the blog and our own travels.

Brittany, “the mom”, is a freelance career coach and HR generalist, former early education director and lover of coffee and baking, she is the master packer, activity captain and budget minder of this operation. 

Lincoln is our oldest of three boys, a planner and organizer like mom. Linc’s brain is always in overdrive processing his surroundings and asking deep questions about life. 

Rowan is the middle and our resident comedian. He truly finds the joy in every moment of life and loves to experience new foods and places with all of his senses. 

Zeke is our littlest bear and already so curious and eager to keep up with his big brothers.
