    Ooh, I had no idea the Galapagos Islands were a UNESCO World Heritage Site! I certainly love trips where you have the opportunity to meet fellow travellers and exchange stories. That picture of you on the red sand with the seal is so beautiful!

    Can you use SkyRoam Solis in the Galapagos? We are looking at going end of September/early October – but I will need to do a little work during this time of year when I travel and can’t find a lot of information on it. I know it will work in Ecuador but wasn’t sure if it would work on the cruise to the Galapagos or not. Any hotspot/wifi info you can help with out there would be appreciated.

      Hey Michelle! If you’re doing a Galápagos cruise – depending on who you’re sailing with – you might be able to get a WiFi pin. However, the islands are incredibly remote and assuming this is a bucket list trip, I would do everything in your power to go offline and really enjoy it. It really is one of those destinations where it’s nice to be offline and be with nature and immerse yourself in the preservation of a pristine environment. So if there is any way you can plan ahead to go offline you’ll enjoy yourself a lot more. Again, depending on who you’re sailing with and locations – you might be completely offline. The hotspot doesn’t work on any of the islands other than San Cristobal and Santa Cruz (they’re inhabited). We got a WiFi hotspot on the ship because they use satellite but even then it was a minimal connection and there were still some days where we were completely offline.


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
