Travel With a Baby – Will it Happen for Us?

Travel With a Baby – Will it Happen for Us?

The time is almost near. in just under four weeks, we hope to welcome our baby into the world. It’s getting harder to find time to write posts and soon we won’t have much time at all as our days will be filled with feeding and catching bits of random sleep when we can. So before this fate befalls us, we thought it would be fun to put some ideas together about if and how we could travel with a baby. It might not happen for a while. We may be housebound for months as our new evil baby overlord master demands food and sleep to the point where we have no time to even shower let alone think about the luxury of travel, so this post will be interesting to revisit next year to see how far we can get planning a road trip or any type of travel with a baby. Enjoy!

A Newbies Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

A Newbies Guide to Ho Chi Minh City

Back in 2009, we headed to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) in Vietnam, the first stop of our travels around south-east Asia. We arrived expecting a bit of hustle and bustle having watched the Top Gear Vietnam Special when we lived in Australia, but in reality, HCMC and indeed Vietnam in general is a crazy, zany place with no rules where traffic is a free-for-all adventure and people are kind and yet opportunistic. This post isn’t really meant to be for those who want to know what accommodation to book or where to visit, more what aspects to HCMC and Vietnam to expect that we certainly weren’t expecting. It’s a bit of fun really.

At a rather swollen 26 weeks pregnant, we headed off to Ibiza to attend the wedding of a dear friend. It was decided that we would try and make a trip of it rather than attend just for the ceremony as it would be the last time that I could fly before the baby arrived and we weren’t too sure if we would be going away again over the coming months. In between wedding duties and relaxing, our mission was to try and see if we could see as much of the island as possible, having only stayed in tourist trap San Antonio many years ago, which meant hiring a car and getting our Ibiza road trip (and sunnies) on!

This month, it was our annual trip to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which we have attended for the past four years. We’ve already given our best hints and tips for having a great festival in this post right here, but wanted to show off some of our pictures from this summer’s jaunt. It will be the last time that we visit the Fringe for a couple of years as we are expecting baby this Christmas and can’t imagine how we’ll do the trip next year, so we made sure we booked a nice hotel in the centre of the city, researched some good comedy to see (yes we know there’s more to the Fringe but we LOVE comedy!) and waddled off to soak in the ambiance.

The Euro Road Trip
By @wayoutfarvicki

Last week we headed off in a camper van for a week long mystery Euro road trip with no idea where we would end up and only our ferry tickets booked. Being no strangers to a mystery driving tour, we wanted the trip to be spontaneous and fun, enabling us to discover more of a family-friendly Europe that we could visit again and again in the future, especially now that we were planning to have a baby later this year.
