    Thanks for sharing!
    I’m going to Australia for a month beginning of November and I was wondering if you think it’s an absolute necessity to reserve everything in advance. So far I only have my plane tickets and I wanted to book my accommodation as well but then be more spontaneous for excursions. Do you think that’s doable or there’s a big chance everything will be fully booked already ? I’m travelling by myself.
    I’m planning to do a cruise in the Whitsundays Islands, as well as a tour in the Red Center (3-4 days) and some day trips to the barrier reef (diving) or from cities (Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns).

    Thanks a lot for your input!

    • Gah it’s SO hard to say right now with COVID. Travel has become a bit unpredictable and doesn’t follow the “typical” pre-pandemic norms. That said, I think you’re safe in waiting to book accommodation closer to your dates (although it is going into their summer, so be sure to account for increased prices and be sure to check for events and what not happening at that time that could affect your trip).


Cabo is always a good idea 🇲🇽

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
