Do you ever wish you could travel more with less stress?

It’s not always an easy flow, right?

Our mission is to help you take the word “complicated” out of your vocabulary and enjoy some stress-free quality time.

Learn Outside The Bubble

Traveling is an important part of any human education. 

It gets us out of our “bubble” and shows us what’s on the other side.

.We are all world citizens and realizing that others do and think things differently is a real eye-opener and helps kids (and adults) grow at all ages.

Whether you need actionable steps for stress-free travel or help with specific itineraries, it’s all about creating a simple plan that works for you.

The main objective: reduce your stress and increase joy!

Yes yes, it’s possible and it can even be a smooth and exciting process 🙂

Behind Urban Pax is our family.

We are a family of 3… I’m Karen (for those who don’t know me yet) – and my two “extraordinary” girls! (aha yes don’t we all say that about our kids? 🙂
I’m a single mom, a writer, an avid traveler and an artist among other things.

And like so many of us, I wear different caps to get things done which can get pretty stressful at times, right?



wood sign life is always better



The generation before me is Italian, French and Egyptian but I was born in Brazil, have lived in Canada, the US and now in the South of France.

I’ve always had a hard time knowing where home was until my daughter was born.

Then it was confirmed again the day my second daughter was born.
Home was simply being together.

This blog came to life after many of my friends asked me what it’s like as a single mother to live simply and also travel the world with my kids.

So I decided to share our simple ways to inspire them – and bring value to you as well.

I hope you’ll join us !
