We are newbie mom and dad with a 1 and 1/2 month old baby
That’s how much he has at the moment of writing of this post. We came to idea to write our own blog because we are traveling couple entering their 30s. We visited over 50 different countries so far and as you can imagine we don’t want to change our lifestyle. After we got our baby a lot of people told us something like “aahh, baby, great, now you guys will stick to one place for couple of years”. Our reaction was “uhhhh, yeah…. right…”. Yes, some changes need to be made but we don’t really want to stop traveling. There are some sources on-line with a lot of useful information but probably not a lot. That’s why we decided to keep track of how our baby grows and all the places we will see with him.
If you are following our baby traveling blog there are couple of things to know about us
- First thing one should know about us is that we are from Serbia. It’s one of poorest countries in the western world. Despite of that we managed to travel some of the countries like Thailand, Japan, Philippines, USA, Dominican republic, Lebanon, Jordan etc. We work online as freelancers and we earn what is by Serbian terms. Still thats probably not so much for the western standards. We travel on a budget and we buy/rent things that most of travelers can afford. We are also average Jane and John Doe, there is nothing spectacular about us. On the other hand working as a freelancers we can earn our money from anywhere. However we have one limitation – you guessed it – our baby! 🙂
- Second thing to know is that we are scuba divers so our blog would have post related to that topic – mom and dad with a baby trying to make some dives! Mom actually didn’t dive when she was pregnant. She missed Japanese wrecks on Coron Philippines and we will cover that topic on one of the posts (pregnancy and decompression). It is not so easy to bring a baby on diving trip and less possible is to leave it at home. First of all mom is breastfeeding and second we don’t want to sacrifice our child’s emotional development for the sake of diving 🙂 But we will give our best to try to dive.
What is a scientist after all? It is a curious man looking through a keyhole, the keyhole of nature, trying to know what’s going on. Jacques Cousteau
- Third thing to know is that we have just one child, a male newborn called Relja (english pronounce Reah-lya). As we said he is breastfed strictly, big for his age, almost six kilos for less than two months. He likes bathing, eats a lot and yes – cries like most of the babies! He doesn’t sleep a lot during the day so travels will be challenging (and after a challenge hopefully awarding). Our first trip will be from Serbia to Cyprus and he will be exactly three months old at the time. That will be our first our blog post (preps, trip it self and eleven days in Cyprus)
We hope someone will find all this stuff useful and we welcome everyone to comment, send suggestions or post questions.
