Why backpacking with a baby?
When we first started backpacking with baby in 2012 people asked us WHY. Why travel around the world with a baby. The answer is really simple. We love backpacking! Therefore we thought why not. I have to say that it is truly rewarding to experience tropical destinations as a family, but you have to realise, that travelling as a family is a lot different than travelling as a couple.
- Suddenly you dont go for a cheap flight with multiple stopovers to get to your dream destination. You choose destination based on flights with few stopovers and reasonable departure times
- You do not choose the cheapest hostel because you care a bit more about facilities
- You plan a lot more – where to stay and what to se and do, but the planning is worth it
- It is still possible to be spontanious, but you are better off having a plan B.
Al the planning is worth it – it is true happiness being around the world with the people you love the most. Experiencing the world through the eyes of your child is amazing.
There can be some obstacles, that you need to overcome. Within this site there are plenty of advice on flying, travelling and backpacking with children. So overcome your fears and just do it! Plan your next backpacker holiday with your baby 🙂Share on Facebook
