We loved our stay so much at the Retrome in Rome, Italy that we were pretty excited to try out the Retrome Barcelona property. The day that we were to check in to the hotel we had just stepped off our Mediterranean cruise and were a little bummed that part of our trip had just come to an end, but we perked up once we checked in to the retro digs we were to stay in for the next couple of days.
Oahu, Hawaii is beautiful, fun and has lots to see and do. Little kids will have a blast playing in the sand and jumping in the warm water. But when they need a break from sand, surf and sun there are many different options of places to bring them for some educational fun.
But doesn’t this just seem like an awful idea to you? I mean this thing is going crazy all over pinterest and I don’t think people are thinking this through.
You really think this is a good idea to give a kid of any age a tackle box full of small high sugar pieces on a road trip? Have fun cleaning that mess up! I can see Reid cringing even thinking of the idea.
There are so many excuses on why you would like to travel but just “can’t.” Here is a post designed to inspire you to set a plan in motion so you can have some of these moments for yourself. Because well, you deserve to grow and to open your mind to new sights and experiences.
1. See History Come Alive
You can read about it in books, you can watch about it on TV, but until you actually visit the places where things happen, it feels almost fictional. Goosebumps, a further sense of understanding and even reverence will be found when you witness it for yourself.
Here’s the deal, I really like to travel- like a lot (duh right?) but something happens to me when I get pregnant. I actually get aversions to the very thought of traveling. I know it sounds crazy but its completely true. The idea of getting on a plane, packing a suitcase, or even booking a hotel makes me nauseous. Why? Because I have done it so many times when I was in my first trimester that my body remembers how awful it is.
This is just the first trimester, then the second trimester comes and I magically get my energy back and I’m ready to travel and do fun things again (and clean my house, and get ready for the day…). So don’t be discouraged if it’s early on and you are planning a trip for later and it sounds like the worst thing in the world. Some of my most favorite trips we have taken have occured when I was big as a house and pregnant.
Here are some pregnancy traveling tips that are trimester specific to hopefully make your journey more comfortable and enjoyable:
