We are celebrating a very important milestone this week – our baby girl turns 6!
Although our blog is only a couple of years old, the family travel adventure started long before the blog. It was the number of air miles our oldest girl had clocked up by her third birthday that took me by surprise (100,000!) – and that she had already been to 5 continents! (sorry South America and Antarctica, we are getting to you!)
She was born in London on a snowy February day – now she declares anything below 20 degrees to be freezing. It’s hard to believe those chubby little arms and legs have grown into such an energetic and courageous little girl. We would never claim every step exploring the world with her has been easy – I can regale you with exploding nappies, temper
It’s hard to believe those chubby little arms and legs have grown into such an energetic and courageous little girl. We would never claim every step exploring the world with her has been easy – I can regale you with exploding nappies, temper tantrums and horrendous jet lag tales – but today I just want to reflect on how much we achieved with her in those first few years. Other than an extreme bout of morning sickness in late 2011, nothing has stopped us from continuing to see the world since our children have come along.
In celebration of her birthday today, we are opening up our family photo album from the pre-Globetrotter blog days, I hope you enjoy and we help inspire your future baby travel adventures.

We are looking forward to a quieter time in 2016 (somewhat..), with a lot more exploring around the UAE and the Middle East to come – there are so many of our neighbouring countries we still haven’t visited! We will be back in
We will be back in Vietnam and Cambodia over the Spring Break and Australia for our annual summer escape ~ but the world is still an open book. Where should we add next? I know Morocco, Turkey & Jordan are high on my personal bucket list.
Are there any family travel gems you think we have completely missed so far? What is the most far-flung destination you never expected to end up in with your kids?
A picture tells a 1000 words right? Don’t forget to follow us on Florida for a daily dose of Globetrotting adventure – from our home in Abu Dhabi to the rest of the world.
