Luxury Family Travel and More – Katie Dillon

I am a freelance lifestyle and luxury travel writer who loves mother-daughter trips, Pinterest, my husband’s sense of humor, a nice glass of wine and one very needy pitbull mix. Living at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong spoiled us for life so we regularly check in to Four Seasons and other luxury properties around the globe. When not on the road, we are at home in seaside La Jolla, CA (an affluent community in San Diego).

Where I Currently Write

The Book:  Flying With Kids

As an expat, I had to fly my daughter transpacific multiple times per year. I’ve included every tip I have, gear recommendations, how to handle jet lag and much more in Flying with Kids.

Media Appearances

I list of television and print appearances are available on the La Jolla Mom Media Page and on my Pinterest board here:
