Planning a trip to Orlando with our 19 month old toddler in mind

Although  not exactly planned (at least not so soon), we are expecting sunshine number 2 at the end of January. We don’t know if it is going to be a boy or a girl yet , but we plan to find out at our next scan!

Just like we did before Arya was born, we are planning to go on a babymoon (with Arya in tow) before the next one arrives. Planning a trip to Orlando seemed like a great idea at first, but once booked I realised that I’ll be 30 weeks along and have a (then) 22 month old toddler to look after. This means, not only will I miss out on most of the thrill rides I was looking forward to but I will also be pretty much caring for her on my own.

1950’s Street Photography of NYC and Chicago

I absolutely love the 1920’s through to the 1950’s of American Culture. Sometimes wishing I could travel back in time just so I could experience it.

oh gosh, I haven’t written for a while…

I’m back

haven’t been on this blog for a while. November 24 was the last time I posted something and it wasn’t even something I wrote, but a guest post.

Arya is now 14 months old and a little bit independent already, that I feel I can devote more time on my travel blog. In fact we are flying to Vienna in just under 3 weeks for our Easter break and I am now planning what to do with a toddler when I am there.

I’ll be posting about my findings later so keep an eye out for that.

I am committed to regularly updating my blog now, but from time to time I may include posts about other projects that are dear to me and may not be travel related at all!

Hope to see you all around!
