About Mariam (Lady Out of Office)
Hi, I’m Mariam. Thanks for stopping by my page. I am a full-time working mom obsessed with out-of-office adventures with my husband and kids.
I want to show you that you can have your 9-5 but still live an adventurous life without sacrificing your career.
I genuinely believe that traveling significantly improves our overall well-being. It allows us to see the world we share with others differently. Not to mention family bonding, increasing self-awareness, or simply creating memorable experiences.
Below are some of the family-friendly destination guides you will find on my page. We have no plans to stop adding to the list!
I believe that you can still travel while having a demanding career
Traveling is one of our priorities in life, but we are not full-time travelers. Like most of you, we have our day jobs and only limited PTO days.
I understand the hectic schedules, so I aim to help busy families like you keep exploring through my detailed travel itineraries, hotel reviews, and local finds.
Traveling With kids is possible and fun.
You can still travel with kids. You may need to adjust your expectations and make a few personal sacrifices, but it can still be a lot of fun.
I want to show you that kids love to explore more than just a resort area. Sometimes we still visit places that are less exciting for them, but that’s part of growth, learning, and compromising for each other.
Sharing experiences with the people you love the most will be hugely rewarded by its long-term benefits. Read some of my favorite travel with-kids quotes to inspire you more.
Traveling locally is still traveling.
If you are like us and can’t physically afford long-distance trips more than 2-3 times a year, try to find adventures near you!
Use your PTOs, weekends, and holidays wisely; you will always explore! Go on a hike, explore a new neighborhood, visit a new museum, visit a farm, or plan a weekend getaway; these are my favorite ways to recharge from busy office days.
How It All Started
My maternity stay inspired this blog when I took a year off from the office to bond with my first child and decided I needed a platform to connect with busy moms who loved traveling to share our experiences.
I started sharing tips and guides. I also started my Instagram Page and have since connected with fantastic, adventurous, and inspiring people. If you love to explore, come and say hi!
