Hi there, we’re the Barons. Welcome to Five Pax!

FivePax is a family travel website focused on responsible and educational experiences involving nature and culture. Our goal is to make the concept of being responsible global citizens as native to our kids as cell phones are to millenials.

Check out our posts on camping and hiking, road trips, and international travel, or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see where we are headed next!
