About our family:
EECC Travels is me (Alisa), my husband Jason and our three boys: Ethan, Cameron & Colby. Also part of the family is Emily, she is grown and doesn’t live at home but is still close by, but she hasn’t been traveling with us. Jason and I have been together since we were teenagers! We actually just celebrated 20 years married on our last trip to Disneyland!
So where does EECC come from? It’s our kids’ initials. In 2003, when twin boys were born so was the family nickname of EECC. When you have six people in the family, it takes a lot of room to sign that many names on a birthday card and it just will not fit on those tiny to/from stickers at Christmas. So EECC became our family nickname and motto. And when we decided to start a YouTube travel channel, the name that made the most sense to us was EECC Travels.
Our family travels:
We took our first big family vacation in 2008 when the twins were 4 years old, and of course, it was to Disney World! We loved it and went back in 2010. We were not able to make it to Disney every year, but an annual family vacation is a tradition. We have also taken trips to Lake of the Ozarks, MO, New Orleans, LA, Dallas, TX to Six Flags and Houston, TX to NASA. Our boys were strongly involved in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts and some of our trips morphed into Scouting trips which I planned for the entire group. Four years ago we took our first cruise… and we were hooked! Cruising is an amazing vacation!!! There are so many different activities and locations wrapped into one vacation. How often can you take one trip and visit three countries???
EECC Travels was born:
When planning our Disney trip in 2015, we discovered YouTube and all of the wonderful videos and vlogs out there! So my family and I decided, ‘hey this looks like fun’, and we decided to start a YouTube channel to share our travel adventures.
We have been fortunate enough to be able to vacation multiple times a year and we have recorded our experiences. In March 2015 we took a cruise on the Carnival Magic to Montego Bay Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico. In September we ventured back to Walt Disney World after five long years absence… It was magical to be back!
So we got a new camera! And had three trips in 2016!
In January, Jason & I took a hubby & wifey trip to Walt Disney World. It was our first time on a vacation without the kids… It was a lot of fun, but of course, we had another trip planned with them!
In March/April, we went on a cruise on the Carnival Freedom to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamaica. It was an awesome vacation and our love of cruising has only gotten stronger! Last but not least for this year, we took a family trip in September to Disney World which included first times for our family to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival!
On to 2017… We are so blessed to have numerous trips for this year as well:
April: Cruise on Carnival Dream to Cozumel, Mexico; Belize & Isla Roatan, Honduras
May: Minneapolis & Stillwater, Minnesota – Yes we went to Mall of America
June: Our first ever trip to DISNEYLAND in California for our 20th wedding anniversary & we explored Los Angeles, Hollywood & Santa Monica as well!
August: New Orleans, LA for my birthday and our first ever NFL game!
September: Quick trip to Houston/The Woodlands for a Matchbox 20 & Counting Crows concert… but we will make an adventure out of it!
December: Walt Disney World which we will experience for the first time all decked out for Christmas! We will attend the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and experience Holidays Around the World at Epcot!
We are so excited and look forward to sharing all of our adventures.
