She strapped that baby to her chest and headed out into the world. Over the years, their family has explored India, biked across France, road tripped across the United States, backpacked through Turkey, and lived in over 40 countries.
After her third baby was born, she realized there still wasn't a publication that addressed the unique needs of adventuring parents who wanted to keep doing the things they loved pre-baby with just some sensible adjustments. How do you do a multi-day hike with kids? Keep babies safe in countries with bad water? Go winter-camping for the first time? Bike-camp across Europe with different aged kids?

Christine had long blogged at almostfearless.com - so this spring Almost Fearless the magazine was born. It's a cross between the travel writing of Afar, the outdoor adventures of Outside and the thoughtful parenting advice of Brain, Child.
Christine Gilbert is the author of the Penguin Random House memoir, Mother Tongue (featured in National Geographic Traveler April 2016 issue) and has been traveling and writing about the world for almost a decade. She has three children, Cole, Stella and Tallulah and right now, together with her husband Drew, they're road-tripping across Mexico in a 1984 VW Westfalia Vanagon, eating too many tacos and putting together the first issue of Almost Fearless for a September release.
80% of Americans will have at least one child by the age of 40.
Isn't time for an ADVENTURE + TRAVEL magazine for PARENTS?.
