My husband and I were married three and a half years before we got pregnant because our goal was to travel before we started a family. I am so happy we took the time to travel to some parts of the worlds such as Italy, Mexico, the Dominican, Virgin Islands. and all over the U.S. So far, my absolute favorite place I have been is Sorrento, Italy. I could stay there forever. The charm, the food, the wine, the people; it was the most amazing energy I have ever experienced in my travels. My goal is to see much more of Europe when Gavin gets a little older. My mom grew up in Poland and visiting her home country is definitely on my list. I'd love to see the country in where my family was started.

A lot of people never travel once they have children, until they are older, however I was given advice from several parents that if you get children comfortable with traveling young, it will be easier as they get older. Since Florida is only a about a 2.5 hour flight from Connecticut, we decided to take our very first family trip in April. I have been to Florida several times but mostly Southern Florida. This time, we will be staying in Marco Island which I hear is very family-friendly and beautiful. I am hoping my first travel with a baby will go smoothly. I hope he loves to travel as much as we do. Any advice from you traveling moms?
