Photasma.com is a travel blog focused on travel for everyday families that are trying to balance a career, family and their love of globetrotting. We want to tell our travel stories and share our memories through photos.
I’m Sean and my wife’s name is Nelida. Sometimes we get lucky enough to travel alone and other times we travel with our daughter Alexandra. We currently live in the Austin Texas area which is a fantastic place to travel to in it’s own right. We can’t recommend it enough. I am originally from Illinois and my wife Nelida is from Venezuela.

We have been to a lot of places both overseas and in the United States. Our goal is to share the standout locations that we have been in hopes that it may help guide your travel decisions and you can see the best and avoid the worst. We will share tips and tricks that we have learned in our travels and provide as much guidance as we can.
Traveling with children presents is own unique challenge and we began traveling overseas with our daughter at 1 yr and 6 months. Mainly to take advantage of the “infant in arms” fare, but we quickly learned that Europe is not as child friendly as the United States. You can still manage and enjoy yourself, but you just have to do a little pre-planning when traveling with children.
We are pretty big movie and certain TV show fans, so when I get the opportunity to visit locations that have been featured prominently on our favorite shows or movies, we make a point to document those sites and take photos that closely mirror the big screen images you have seen. Keep an eye out on our blog for locations from the movie “Highlander”, “Braveheart”, “Harry Potter” and “The Count of Monte Cristo”.
We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. — Unknown
