Family Travel Advice & Escapist Fun From Dad’s Perspective: A blog focused on travel, theme parks, and entertainment to help families navigate through life’s adventures.
It’s trite, but true: life’s an adventure – whether it takes you across the street, across the country, or across the globe. Adventures by Daddy invites everyone to follow along as one father, with a passion for travel, discovers the adventures that abound every day. This blog focuses on trip reports from solo travels for work, family travels for relaxation and vacation, and everyday adventures at home with family and parenting. Adventures by Daddy covers select films and television shows that also embrace the spirit of adventure. I invite you to follow along, share your thoughts and perspectives, as we discover the world together and build a community of families interested in travel and adventure.
About the Author:
Dave Parfitt is married, father of two, and lives in Rochester, New York, USA. I’m also a runner with a PhD in neuroscience, and work full-time at a bucolic Western New York college. Throughout my academic training and career, I’ve lived in numerous Northeastern and Midwestern US cities before settling in the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York. For work I’ve traveled worldwide, but it was planning a Walt Disney World trip as father of two budding princesses that I became “bitten by the family travel bug.”
