We can help Supercharge Your Destination Marketing!

Let us help you market and promote your brand!

Along for the Trip is all about family travel. We specialize in destination marketing, reviews, tips, and ways to make travel easier for families. Most of all, we like to have fun and try to help other families do the same.

We love taking our kids to as many places as possible and discovering the best family-friendly food, attractions, and accommodation in every place we visit.

We've worked with many brands and take pride in delivering well-written articles, great photos, and promotion with high social engagement to make sure that our clients are happy. We also make sure that your brand is represented in an honest and fun way that draws readers in and makes them want to visit.

Meet the Buss Family

Before kids, Carrie and Carrick Buss traveled some, but with a tight budget, international travel wasn't a reality. After kids, they made traveling a priority and have never looked back. If there's fun to be had, they'll find it.

With degrees in English and Literature, Carrie is an excellent writer. As an accomplished musician, she lends a creative touch to Along for the Trip that makes it unique. Carrie is a library media specialist by profession which allows her to be tuned in to kids and families every single day. Oh, and she loves books.

Carrick has almost 20 years of experience in computers and IT bringing excellent technical skills to the mix. He is also a solid copywriter and editor. With a degree in music, he makes sure the kids get a good dose of culture as well as fun everywhere they travel.

Andrew (12) and Cadence (10) round out the Buss family and interject their own unique brand of humor and fun to the mix. Occasionally you will find their writing on the blog as well.
