There’s always that moment before you go on a trip where you wonder if you have misjudged your plans – this is even more true when you are traveling as a family. I remember sitting on the plane before doing our big med trip last year and wondering if it was going to be as successful as we hoped. I’ll admit there were some hiccups along the way – I’m looking at you earthquake – but our trip in particular our experience in Rome inspired us in our future travels (you can read about our big trip planning here). So here is a low down of places we’ve been and how they have inspired us for future travel with our baby contrary to what people have told us!

Travel has always been a big part of mine and Wandermust Daddy’s life and we were determined that travel would stop just because we had a baby (You can read more about why we have and why we will continue travelling with our baby here)! Saying that, we knew it would change! So before we had Baby E we made a pre pregnancy and pre parenthood travel bucket list – this is what was on it:
1. Do a holiday which you can’t do with children
For us this was visiting a malaria zone and going gorilla trekking. Our line in the sand for travelling with children is always about health and safety and we won’t travel to malarial zones with Baby E!
Also gorilla trekking is an activity that can’t be done until children are at least fifteen years old. We didn’t want to wait that long to experience this so this was our last ‘big’ holiday before Baby E came along!
We travel a lot and don’t really stress about traveling with our baby but since starting our blog I’ve discovered that a lot of people are apprehensive about travelling with babies especially when it comes to feeding. Well here are our experiences and top tips for weaning while travelling.
This week I have had my first business trip post parenthood. I’ll admit that it’s a good job that this isn’t a pen and paper post as if it was it might be illegibly stained with tears. It’s true I have never been particularly good at solo travel. I like experiencing things with my loved ones and just having someone to chat to. It’s just the way I am. One of the worst travel experiences I’ve ever had was a ten day business trip to Washington DC over Columbus day weekend on my own. I ended up jumping on a plane to Chicago for one night to see friends just to counter the loneliness. Therefore it came as no surprise that I was dreading this trip. Not only was I travelling alone but I was also leaving behind my ten month old baby for the first time. Not something I relished and I’ll admit there was a love actually scene in the departures area as I said goodbye! As I was sat at the airport waiting to depart I was overcome with the Mummy Guilt and would have done anything I could have to avoid going.
Now as I hit post, I can say that I have been happily reunited with baby and hubby and the good news is I survived! my first solo trip post parenthood! It was never going to be the best trip but my survival strategy definitely worked so if you are a parent having to take a trip or business trip away from your baby these are my tips for how to survive! Continue reading Business Trip or Mummy’s Guilt Trip? How I survived my first post-parenthood business trip

PALMA, SPAIN, BY WANDERMUST FAMILY
Here’s what Wandermust Mummy has to say about visiting Palma with a six month old:
We are relatively lucky that in all our years of travelling we have not had too many big disasters. One of the worst was losing our luggage in Uganda before going gorilla trekking! The abundance of wine we were travelling with helped but it taught us always to have the essentials in our hand luggage! Oh and travelling with wine is always a good idea! You can read more about our disastrous Ugandan luggage experience here!
I love cruises but besides the restaurants, amenities and convenience what I love most about cruises is the ports! I love seeing so many places in bite sized chunks so I know where I want and where I don’t want to go back to and satisfy my wanderlust in a really easy way.
When we were travelling as a couple if the itinerary had somewhere new on it we would quite happily go especially if it was good value but now we have a baby we chose our cruise itinerary more carefully. So here are my top tips for picking a baby friendly cruise itinerary: Continue reading How to choose a baby friendly cruise itinerary
