I was a wreck a couple weeks ago before jetting of to Dublin, Ireland without my family. Once there, though, I had a wonderful time. But I was so happy to see them all when they joined me a week later!

Story
Tagline
Kari Haugeto is a multimedia journalist whose work is shaped by an eclectic resume. Her eye for all things visually compelling captures immersive masterpieces about the areas she visits, transporting audiences to places rarely seen and experiences rarely tried. And she has tried it all. She was a featured soloist at Lincoln Center at age 7. She’s instructed Naval Academy midshipmen on the finer points of scuba diving. She ran for public office in South Florida and lived to tell the tale. She helped create one of the first Internet startups in Berkeley, Calif. She’s been a museum docent, starred in an off-Broadway show, and sang the national anthem at a Baltimore Orioles game. She holds an MBA from the University of Central Florida. She learned the art of multimedia journalism as a graduate student at Full Sail University and the craft of writing from mentors at National Geographic.
Introduction
Kari Haugeto is a world traveler, photographer, videographer and serial entrepreneur, using cutting-edge technology to share her unique view on the world. She’s currently on the road with Christopher Elliott and their three young children sharing visual stories about fantastic destinations, family travel, virtual schooling, parenting and the perils of togetherness on their AwayIsHome.com blog. Along the road, she’s picked up a few tempting recipes from her favorite watering holes for Cocktail.com.
