I have always been a traveler at heart. Travelling was honestly something that kept me sane. Be it domestic destinations or international ones. I just want to travel. I was lucky enough to find a husband who shared same interests as mine. After we got married we literally used to wait for like three day offs together so that we could escape somewhere. Travelling somewhere was the only thing we looked forward to.
After 2 years of marriage, we had our first child. Amaira. I had been really unwell throughout my pregnancy and post the baby we all know how the scenario is. So I had literally given up the thought of traveling with the baby. I don’t think it was difficult rather I thought it was impossible. A few months passed. The Little one was 8 months old, my husband surprised us with a trip to Hongkong. We would be finally travelling.
As much excited I was I knew I could hear myself screaming inside my head. Before the baby, we just had to carry our own. After the baby, there was a check list that got into packing the little one’s diaper bag. Before the baby, we would actually get bored during long flights but after the baby, there was not a single second we could sit down, my baby kept me and fellow passengers awake. Before the baby how luxurious it would feel to have in-flight meals while watching your favorite movie, after the baby the meal was just not on the table in front of us, but everywhere else too. Before the baby, we could enjoy a little nap on flights after the baby it was a dream
As funny as it may sound guys. A little human enters your life and makes it his own. There are countless things you need to think before travelling with the baby. From child-friendly hotels to child-friendly destinations. Yes, these exist actually. But I assure you nothing can be more joyous than to have a little travelling partner travel with you to your favorite destinations.
