We’re Bernie and Amara Uche, a Nigerian Canadian couple based in Toronto, and we love to travel. In fact, our mutual love of adventure and exploration was one of the things that brought us together in the first place.

Now that we’re parents, we’re passionate about introducing our children to the world and creating meaningful family experiences while doing so.

We like to think of travel as our escape from the mundane and everyday, a chance to explore new cultures and build lifelong memories.

Having both grown up in families that traveled a lot, we know firsthand how transformational travel can be. 

We’ve discovered the joy of discovering new cultures, immersing ourselves in different environments and witnessing the wonder in our children’s eyes as they discover new places.

We also quickly realized that planning and executing a successful trip with young kids in tow is no easy feat!

We’re learning the intricacies of family travel, organizing logistics to finding kid-friendly activities that cater to various age groups.

The Escape Manual is our way of sharing our travel experiences and providing helpful tips and resources for other families who love to travel. 

We believe that with the right planning and preparation, traveling with kids can be enjoyable for everyone involved.
