Babies, children, travelling. Together at the same time. Once I would have sniffed dismissively at the prospect – “well of course, when I’m a parent, I’ll just carry on as I always have, just with a baby in tow”. WOW was I naive. I’d like to show my old self a little glimpse into my current-self’s life and laugh heartily in old self’s face. Of course travelling with children is possible, it’s just that it presents a few, ‘different’ challenges, the patience of a very patient person and a bit of getting used to on the part of the parents. And when you get it right, it is extremely rewarding.
Hi I’m Angharad, mama of two, travel lover, neon obsessive, sun worshipper and Gin enthusiast. I am happiest outside in the sunshine. I do a mean velociraptor impression. Did I mention my most favourite drink on this Earth is gin. I am extremely hazardous on a bicycle, this has nothing to do with the gin…well, not always.
Since December 2013 I’ve been climbing the learning cliff face of parenthood, googling the hell out of everything from the gritty lows of nappy contents to sleep-training tactics. To my relief, many questions I searched for had already been posed by a ton of nervous parents before me. It is partly for this reason as well as my love of travel that I have started this blog.
I am far from being an expert in this field. Travel yes, travel with a baby no. For several years I’ve been penning my thoughts on special places to see around the globe, hoping to inspire folk. I did this as Editor of the Sawday’s French guides, on my own travel blog – ATP Travels and for Visit Bristol. But travel with kiddos…I am still just a novice. So I’m going to share what I learn along the way, hoping to help and inspire fellow mamas who love to travel.
