Laying Over in Qatar

"Is it safe?” That’s what people kept asking me when I told them our layover back to Indonesia would be in Qatar. Well, after asking, “Where is that?” The Middle East, especially in America, is often talked about with fear and apprehension. It’s not really a top destination in the minds of many Americans. But… Continue reading Laying Over in Qatar

Surviving [and Loving] Overseas Flights With a Baby

Looking back, this is probably one of the easiest ages to fly with a child. I didn’t have to worry about kid friendly snacks or drinks. At almost four months old, all she does is breastfeed. I didn’t have to plan out hours of entertainment. She still can sleep for hours or be entertained very… Continue reading Surviving [and Loving] Overseas Flights With a Baby

Baby’s First Flight

Now that we have a baby, travel will never look the same. Gone are the days of budget airlines and carry-on only. At least for awhile. If I’ve learned anything in the few short months of being mom it’s that everything takes more time than expected.

9 Podcasts for Long Travel Days

I would say that this is the year that I discovered podcasts. I’d listened to one or two over the years, but it wasn’t until 2016/2017 that I became mildly addicted. I blame Serial. This binge-worthy true crime podcast launched in 2014, and since then, I’ve been looking for it’s replacement. I love that podcasts… Continue reading 9 Podcasts for Long Travel Days

Laying Over in Seoul & Narita Pt. 1

On our last trip from Indonesia to America, we had booked a crazy flight combination. We pieced together a few routes and ended up with a super cheap flight with two long layover in countries we hadn’t yet visited. I was so excited to explore Seoul and Tokyo on these layovers. I love planning trips… Continue reading Laying Over in Seoul & Narita Pt. 1

Portrait of a Mother-To-Be

I confess, blogging has taken a backseat to this pregnancy of mine. Not because it's been a hard pregnancy, but because my brain and my heart have been focused elsewhere. But I did want to share these stunning maternity photos my husband & I had taken once arriving back in the US. Our good friend,… Continue reading Portrait of a Mother-To-Be

Fifteen Photos to Inspire You to Visit Singapore

Singapore is a one of kind city/country. Nestled at the tail of of the Malay peninsula, Singapore has an identity all it's own. It's a culture collision, in the best way possible. Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern foods & places of worship blend seamlessly with European architecture and modern transportation and efficiency. It's one of the… Continue reading Fifteen Photos to Inspire You to Visit Singapore
