Travel is one of our new years resolutions that we seldom break, because like every fun loving and curious family, we absolutely love to travel. There is just so much out there to see and experience. Our little daughter Emma, is the bravest and has been travelling with us since she was a month old, like a real trooper.
So what’s on the list?
- Madrid, Spain: We have been there to Madrid before, but with my closest friend moving there, I can’t wait to visit again this January.
- Malta: We have heard so much about this beautiful Mediterranean fairy tale island, and could not resist planning a short trip there.
- Japan: Joel loves anything to do with Japan and its been on our travel list since forever. This year includes a lot of celebrations for us from a decade of being married to a noteworthy birthday of both Joel and Emma. This trip is a real treat to celebrate all of it.
- Loire valley, France: We discovered this place by accident while driving back from Angouleme, France. Lesson learnt: always google or search on pinterest places that appear on expressway signboards. This is one of the prettiest valleys of castles, not too far from Paris. I have listed this one down for a perfect girlie trip with my little daughter and mum (who believe in fairy tales – well! truth be told, I believe in them too)
- New York: all it takes is a trip to a wedding, and BOOM – just like that New York crept onto our list. The most exciting part is that I will finally get to go see the statue of liberty and central park. I have been travelling to New York for years but reserved these 2 places to see it with my 2 sweethearts (Joel and Emma). One other big motivation is hiring a dodge convertible for a spin.
- Cartegena, Columbia: Cuba in December last year, gave us a taste of sun while it snows back in Belgium. This beach hot spot is calling us this year.
- Portugal: Believe it or not, we haven’t been to Portugal in years. So a summer trip there beckons 🙂 or may be the bacalhau and pasteis de nata beckons. haha!
Enjoy our tips and experiences of travelling with a young family.
