Our Helpful Secrets to Booking an Airbnb with a Toddler

June 8, 2017

We’ve taken Owen with us on almost every vacation we’ve taken since he was born. He’s been to the west coast in the US, to Mexico, Costa Rica, France and now Germany. When we’ve traveled west we’ve always stayed with family, but on every other trip (which is clearly now part of our daily lives) we’ve stayed in an Airbnb or something like it, never hotels. There are many reasons for this, most of which I shared here, but ultimately it has been what works for our family no matter how short or long the stay is. I figured since we’re kinda, sorta becoming well rounded in this area I would share with you guys what we look for and our secrets when we’re booking an Airbnb. As always, I would love any tips you guys have too, because like anything in life, it’s a work in progress over here!


Simple, Practical Routines to Make Berlin Home

June 6, 2017

Maybe it’s the fact that Owen’s getting used to switching up our location each month, that he’s over being sick, that he’s growing up a little or that he is just more of a Berlin guy, but it’s safe to say that Owen has been even happier since we walked through these doors. It’s crazy how quickly kids adapt and how they adjust to their new routine. It didn’t take more than two mornings of waking up here for him to know where breakfast was, where we should sit and that he needed me to get it for him. His ability to go with the flow is the best reassurance that we are in fact doing the right thing by traveling with him. He’s slept great and seems to have just shifted from one place to the other without any issues at all.


It’s Here! Rent Our Affordable and Beautiful Paris Home Now

June 2, 2017

People have asked us if we think a month is enough time to soak up a city. Here’s what I can say about it. While it has flown by, a month gave us the freedom to explore a Paris at our own pace and in our own way. We saw absolutely everything we wanted to with less pressure and without having to cram it all into a few days. With a full month at our disposal we were able to visit the not so traveled streets and corners of Paris and I’m so grateful for that. By staying in a more residential neighborhood, in an Airbnb, we were able to establish a routine and our household here without being in a sea of tourists. Having a kitchen to cook meals in and the space to actually hang at home rather than a cramped hotel room made a world of difference and I can’t imagine doing it any other way. It’s bittersweet to be leaving, but I think we really knocked Paris out of the park as our first stop on our travels.
