On 7th June 1980. MS Zenobia, 178 meter long ship started it decent to the bottom of Mediterranean sea Now it lays on the bottom on 42 meters, around 1.5 kilometers off shore from Larnaca, Cyprus. Zenobia is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 recreational dive sites worldwide by various portals and magazines. It was build by Sweedish company and she sank on her maiden voyage from Malmo, Sweeden to Syrian town Taurus. She arrived at Larnaca with a ballast problem just to be dragged out of harbor. Boat capsized five days later and 200 millions worth of cargo sank with it. No one was hurt as all the crew aborted the ship hours before the worst. There are a lot of myths and controversies about it, one of the stories is that it smuggled weapons from Yugoslavia to the middle east. In any case its a very big wreck that offers different types of dive and is considered biggest underwater truck graveyard. It offers diving on upper levels for intermediate level divers down to engine room for very experienced technical diving. I wanted to visit Zenobia for years now and had several failed attempts to go and check […]
Soon after our baby Relja was born, when we had our assurances that he is healthy, strong and developing well, we decided to take our first trip with him once he turns three months and to make it somewhere “local” meaning in South Europe. Our decision felt on Cyprus and for the end of October. We picked that location for two reasons: 1) it has the longest season in the Med 2) We found extremely low prices on Wizzair website. End of October was the choice because what we researched online is that there are no rules regarding when is the baby “too small” for the plane. Some companies don’t have regulations some require it to be at least two weeks old. But there is another problem: newborns have very fragile immunity and in airplanes the a/c has the same air circulating from all parts of the plane into single system meaning that everyone is breathing what other people exhale, therefore a lot of babies get various sorts of infections form the flight itself. We know of a baby that was on a plane when she was three weeks old and she got a conjunctivitis. Advise is that baby should […]
We won’t write much about previous travels as we want this blog to be focused on traveling with a kid, but also because other destinations are pretty much mainstream. One trip that was specific to be was the last years trip to Philippines. One that makes this one different is that I was second month pregnant with my baby boy Relja and that trip took around 30 days. I didn’t planed to take that trip pregnant but as you can’t plan things in life we made our baby from strike one, and we bought those ticked for a very good price months before that. We found out I was pregnant one months before the trip and didn’t exactly know should we cancel it or no. So first thing first was to visit my gynecologist (that labored be later in July) to confirm the pregnancy and to let me know if its safe to travel that far. He confirmed and said that its ok and with normal sense of percussion there is no reason why not to go. Still I had double thoughts and I was very nervous, especially because our ininerary was very complicated. I had to take […]
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, […]
