02 May Backpacking with a 10 week old baby!
Most people wouldn’t even consider packing their bags and traveling the world, but this woman decided to do so and bring her 10-week-old baby and partner.
“The overall aim is to inspire like-minded travel loving parents — your travel days do not have to be over.”
Karen Edwards, 31 years, from London, spent her maternity leave traveling with her baby Esmé and her hubby Shaun. Is this ridiculous or just super cool?
Like Karen, I’m also on a mission to visit as many countries in the world as possible. Just because you’ve settled down and have kids doesn’t mean your adventuring days are through!

“I know I feared being the ‘mum with the crying baby’ on board a busy flight…” – She wrote on her website – “By the time our little girl was four months old she had been to four countries, on a long road trip, camping, an international ferry and two long-haul flights. I am not saying it is always easy but at the end of the day it all turns out okay!”
Karen has a own blog where she gives super handy tips & tricks for parents traveling with babies:
» How to plan the journey
» How to set a budget and financing plan
» How to prepare for a journey with a baby
» What to bring for the baby
» How to pack your backpack
