Me and my man embarked on a pretty serious journey in 2007, hitting 20 countries in 20 months, arriving back on North American soil with a (surprise!!) bun in the oven. Best souvenir ever I'd say! Needless to say, the travel bug does not cease simply because a third party is in the picture. On the contrary! Now we desire most to show our baby to the world and the world to him. Even as a wee little guy I believe strongly that the experience of travel creates insurmountable learning opportunities, and the interaction with new cultures can only lend to his growth as a strong, social, compassionate being.
That being said, my husband and I are about to head out on our first overseas trip with our baby boy!
