We are Aaron and Meghan Oaks. For two years, we lived and worked in Germany, and explored the continent every opportunity we got. In 2016, we moved back to the US (Texas to be exact) and began our journey as "re-pats." In that time, we've continued to travel - both domestically and internationally; welcomed two little girls into our lives; and learned how to fit in diving and traveling into life as a two working parent household.


Our mission is to show families it's possible to travel with young children and inspire them to get out there.

Our passion for the underwater world drives us to share those experiences with the world.


Submerged Oaks was started as a way to keep friends and family in the United States up to date on our adventures abroad. Since then, our travels have evolved and include everything from weekend escapes and city breaks, to international travel with two young children and the occasional dive trip (without children). Our goal is to share the stories of our travels - both the good and the hard lessons - and inspire families that travel with young children is possible and even enjoyable. Blog posts most often take the form of stories, but lists to help travelers plan their next trip, reviews of travel services or products, and travel tips and tricks are also common.
