When you're traveling with a posse, juggling stacks of travel documents and truckloads of gear, sometimes it doesn't feel that way. Up & Away was founded by superstar Hong Kong mom of two wee-jetsetters, Amy, who discovered that there was no efficient way to carry four or more passports. So, instead of throwing them in her bag, she created Up & Away which offers colorful designed passport holders so you can finally carry 1, 2, or 3 passports in style.
