Behind BozAround is Vanessa Boz

I am French, live in London, have three children, love to share, love pretty things, love travel.

I was brought up in France and a bit in Algeria. I got a summer job once as a flight attendant and the travel fever never went away. I left my hometown Paris to live in Madrid, Caracas, Boston and Sao Paolo. Thought I had settled in New York, where I spent ten amazing years, and then London came calling. That’s where I live today with my Turkish husband and our three children, creating customised trips for families and writing about travel.

APPROACH

I see myself as some sort of a match maker. Let me explain

When I like something, I love to think of whom I know that would like it too. That’s how the blog was born back in 2010, before we embarked on our sabbatical around the world. In French, we say les voyages forment la jeunesse … Travel shapes the youth. Traveling with children gives the journey a whole new meaning and purpose. It is a unique way to expose them to the beauty of this world, to help them grow as considerate and generous global citizens. We live in times where borders and mentalities are closing. Traveling, seeing the world with our own eyes might be the best recipe for tolerance to survive.

IN MY PREVIOUS LIFE

I started my career in Wall Street (yes I did!). I then co-founded the children’s trade shows Bubble in New York and London. We traveled the world with our children in 2011 and I documented our sabbatical as we went along. I also launched a travel start up called moodAway, a sort of Pinterest + Instagram + tripAdvisor. The last fifteen years of my career have been devoted to family & travel. Aside from creating itineraries and writing travel stories, I am building The Generous Traveler. It’s a digital platform to connect global travelers with local charities and organisations doing good on the ground.
Curiously yours,

I am a huge fan of BozAround since I’m pretty obsessed with travel. I love how Vanessa weaves in so much of her personality.
