10 Aug Single Parent Travel – Our First Trip.
Estimated reading time 2 and a half mins
Travelling is a huge passion of mine. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to do much of it over the last five years and I have missed it terribly. I am a huge fan of the weekend getaway and feel it is greatly improves ones wellbeing.
When my wonderful parents offered me an all expenses paid trip to the Gold Coast for my birthday I could not resist. Although the thought of travelling as a single mum with an 18 month old baby was a bit daunting, I thought if did not step out of my comfort zone now and do it, I will regret it. I was right, and it was just what we needed. We had a fabulous time and Ariel was amazing. She loved the airport and she was nice and relaxed on the plane. That is not to say it wasn’t hard work because I did have to work for it. She was on my lap so I did have to entertain her pretty much the whole way. The trick was to take a supply of her favourite healthy snack bars and her favourite picture books. Ariel is so easy going and seems to love the weekend getaway as much as I do. She was extra loving and so well behaved. I was so proud of her and am looking forward to more travel in the future. Once we got back I felt an incredible sense of achievement. Travelling will be a big part of our live’s and I am looking forward to seeing the world with my girl in the future.
Some of the highlights of our weekend.
We were only away for the weekend but I feel revived and inspired. I am starting a new single parent travel category so if you have any travel tips or recommendations for us please leave them in the comments box.
