Heya! As I hope you are aware by now, from my countless mentions in my January posts, I am currently in Melbourne, Australia (heading to Sydney) with one of my best friends from my Auckland school days. (Well actually at the moment I am on a plane flying to Sydney). So while I am away I have lined up a few guest bloggers to share so awesome new things with you, with the occasional check in from me on my Social Media (see right sidebar).
Today’s post is brought to you by Natasha who blogs over at Sweet Mama M about parenting, food and exploring the world. Her and her husband travelled frequently before their infant son arrived and they’re looking forward to getting back into it this year, introducing little CJ to the joys of plane travel.
By the time you read this, I will have just arrived back from my first solo flight since becoming a mother! Friends were getting married in Perth and given the fleeting time that we would be there, as well as our other travel plans for this year, we decided that I’d pop over quickly on my own and the big and little dudes will have time together. I took this last opportunity to travel ultra-light (especially as part of my journey will involve hitching a ride with friends down the Western Australia coast) – I know that when we first travel with CJ we’ll be maxing out everybody’s baggage allowance! So without further adieu, here we go!
First of all, no plane journey is complete without reading material. Yes, that is a magazine from Nov/Dec last year – welcome to the wonderful world of parenting where sitting down and reading a magazine cover to cover is a luxury. Next to this is my faithful iPad, most often seen in our bedroom as I read to wind down while my husband slumbers away next to me – it’s like he doesn’t even have thoughts!
