Sometimes the easiest way to absorb information is to actually have it in your hands – not on a screen. That’s why I’ve created two new e-guides for adventurous parents, Adventure Travel with a Baby: 40+ Tips and Insights and Essential Gear for Travelling with a Baby (a handy checklist for packing!).
Perhaps you have heard of Tahiti and Bora Bora. These are just two of 118 islands and atolls in French Polynesia! Each one has its own character and allure, from the remoteness and gin-clear waters of Maupiti to the craggy peaks of Moorea. You’ll have to do some digging to see which ones suit you, and if you’ve got a baby coming along, you’ll want to be extra picky. The information below should help you make the right choices.
If you’re travelling with a baby you’ll be surprised at the extra gear even such a small person requires. And while some items, such as diapers, are a no-brainer to bring along, others may not come to mind so easily.
Before we started a family, my husband and I shared a passion for adventure travel, and made a concerted effort to plan an annual trip. That didn’t change when we had our baby girl. We had the goal of travelling abroad with our daughter in her first year of life, and though we knew it would be challenging, in the Winter of 2014 we set off for 70 days in the South Pacific when Maya was just ten months old.
