  1. […] you know like mom travelers. But already being pregnant is a whole new story and I’ve just written a piece about staying in a mixed room hostel as a pregnant woman. That was very idle thing of me. And it was […]

    Just yesterday I slept at the airport with my baby but I found myself a sofa, we had a 6 hr layover and my 2 yr old needed to sleep. But yes I did not sleep much as who would look after the baby rt? I am sure you will start traveling with the bub as soon as the dr says ok because like you said old habits!

    Complimenti Rachel! I love the story, and just picture you in the airport! All the best for the coming months, and for future travels, albeit with a slightly adjusted approach to things.

    Loved this post! I’m 29 too, and while not pregnant, I definitely think about age, travel habits, and how just a few years can make a HUGE difference in how one is willing to travel. But even as travel has become a little more comfortable, I think the “hobo” travel style will always have some allure for me. 🙂

    Mazal tov rachel! As for travelling – well I staffed a birthright trip while 11 weeks pregnant and my baby has been to israel twice and she is just 6 months old! Yes it can be challenging but you figure it out. People tend to be a little nicer and a little more helpful when there are babies around. Also, on long haul flights yoy can request a bassinet and those seats tend to come with more leg room. All you need to do is get baby a passport and let the adventures begin 🙂

    I love this post, Rachel! We have a 7 month old and I cannot wait for his passport to arrive. Not sure how early we’ll take off with him, but like you, I’m thinking about how and when it will happen – and what his first culture will be. We are already practicing Spanish at home with him and plan to put him in a language program when he is older. Congrats to you and your family! Motherhood is beyond words!
