We loved a city break before parenthood and were determined to carry on doing them with the baby in tow. We have been to nine cities now, and have had great fun as a family (if you want to know how our travel has changed since having a baby or about why we travel with our baby you can read about it here) but last month we went on our first Winter city break as parents. Now we like going to cities in Winter. There are many plus sides – it’s out of season which means there are less people and its cheaper – Win Win! But is this still the case with a baby?
For us the answer was undoubtedly yes! But there are definitely things that you need to think about and prepare for to ensure you have a successful Winter City Break with a Baby. Here’s what we found: View Post
Now that 2016 has come to an end it’s hard not to look back. We’ve had an amazing year – becoming parents, travelling around Europe doing city breaks and a Mediterranean cruise aswell as plenty of flights home to see the new grandparents. But as exciting as our adventures were in 2016, 2017 looks to be even better. So here’s what we have coming up so far: View Post
When we had our baby people frequently told us that all our travelling would come to an end! We hoped in that foolhardy way of impending parents that this wouldn’t be the case for us. Now we’ve had to eat our words on many things but thankfully we haven’t in regards to travelling. Baby E is now eight months old and has been to seven countries, on nine long haul flights, on a Mediterranean cruise and on nine city breaks. And 2017 is going to bring even more travel – so why do we travel with a baby?
Without sounding too corny 2016 has literally been the best year of my life! 2016 was the year we became parents to Baby E ! What more could we have asked for than our perfect little girl. Parenthood is a great adventure but to on top of that we have had some great travel adventures with her already!
We have been back to the UK 3 times visiting family in birmingham and having city breaks in Henley and Oxford and spending her first Christmas in Yorkshire!
We’ve been on a Med cruise – visiting Rome, Toulon, Palma, Corsica and Valencia and had a Christmas city break in Stockholm!
And the diary for 2017 is filling out already!
So on this New Years Eve I am thankfully for my daughter and the adventures we’ve already had together and promise you many more in 2017!
Happy new year everyone! I’d love to hear your 2016 highlights and plans for 2017!
This is a monthly feature to let you know where we are travelling to in the following month. We are hoping this page will keep our readers informed, get us recommendations from other travellers about our upcoming locations and let any potential partners know locations of where we are going should anyone want to partner with us while we are there (please contact wandermustfamily at wandermustfamily.com for any potential partnership work).
That being said in January we will be in:
- Doha for the most part as we have guests in town. Me and Wandermust Granny are also thinking of doing a Doha staycation or beach day – where do you think we should go?
- At the tennis – the Qatar open arrives every January and being a tennis fanatic this is one of my favourite January activities! Even better as Murray is coming this year!
- Wandermust daddy is escaping parenthood for the weekend and travelling to Kolkata to see the cricket while staying at the beautiful Lalit hotel. I’m not jealous at all! Honest!
