New Post on WeAreTravelGirls.com by WATG Co-Founder Vanessa Rivers @vanessarivers ‘8 Tips For Traveling With A Baby’⠀
______⠀

As a new mom so I can say from experience that traveling with a baby can be very challenging. My baby girl has two passports (British and US) and has visited three countries at just six-months-old. It sounds cool to be a travel mom but in reality it is like being an unpaid sherpa. Gone are the days when you can throw a few things in an overnight bag and just go somewhere (at least when traveling with your family). ⠀

Family travel, especially with a baby, requires planning. I have managed to take a few trips without my daughter in the last few months, but the traveling I have done with her, while challenging, has also been very rewarding. If you are a new parent here are 8 tips for traveling with a baby.⠀

SEVILLE, SPAIN // Sibel Baysal @sybilbycall exploring the stunning Plaza de España in Seville.⠀
______⠀

Traveller Information From Sibel ↠ Plaza de España was built for the Ibero-American Exhibition of 1929 (Expo 29), along with many of the pavilions you can see in and around the Parque Maria Luisa. Plaza de España is a semi-circular brick building, Renaissance/neo-Moorish in style, with a tower at either end (tall enough to be visible around the city, these towers – north and south – are major landmarks). In the front of building there is a big canal. You can rent small boats to row in the canal – the Plaza is known as “the Venice of Seville”.⠀

ALPSTEIN, SWITZERLAND // Sabrina @moonhoneytravelers hiking for cheese in Switzerland. ⠀
______⠀

Traveller Tip From Sabrina ↠ Do you love cheese? Do you love to hike? If yes, Appenzellerland might be your heaven. This north-eastern Swiss region produces a nutty, bold cheese called Appenzeller Käse. To taste the best regional cheese, you need to hike into the mountains. For breathtaking scenery, hike to Seealpsee (a beautiful lake) in the Alpstein mountain range. The trail meanders through dairy farms and mountain inns. For the best view, head to the cliff-side restaurant Äscher. You can buy cheese directly from the dairy farms, or you can order a generous slab at Äscher. Alternatively, you can hike to Fählensee and eat at the mountain inn Bollenwees. They serve the best cheese Rösti (hash browns).⠀

MUIZENBERG, CAPE TOWN // Cindy @cindyycheeks exploring one of Cape Towns most colourful spots ⠀⠀⠀
______⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀
Traveller Tip From Cindy ↠ Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. It’s believed to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa. Today, you’ll still find a ton of wind surfers gliding in the cold Atlantic water, along with these picturesque and colorful beach huts. They’re perfect for a photo op, but be sure to bring warm clothes, Cape Town can get pretty windy. You can’t tell but I was actually freezing and I was ready to throw on my jacket immediately after the photo was taken!⠀⠀⠀

BURANO, ITALY // Ciara @hey_ciara lost in colourful Burano
______⠀

Traveller Tip From Ciara ↠ I didn’t know a place like Burano existed. This is the most colorful town I’ve ever seen, possibly in the whole world. This wasn’t just a row of homes, the whole neighborhood was painted a vibrant color. Every home. Every color. It was a weird journey getting to Burano. I’d only had 2 hours of sleep on a bus the night before. I landed in Florence at nearly midnight then took a bus to Venice. I needed to be at the bus stop at a certain time & only taxis were available so I was overcharged $40 for a 20 min ride. I made it to the bus stop & another girl asked me a question. I’d already identified that we’d stick together if anything went down. I didn’t realize that this bus wasn’t direct, so we had a stop at about 2am-5am. ⠀

We sat at a sketchy bus stop with our bags before our second bus came. She didn’t speak much English, but I was happy to still be together. We arrived in town at a foggy 6am & had to walk around for an hour with our bags before storing them at a hostel for the day. We decided to spend the day together since we were both solo. ⠀

First we stopped at a cafe to grab coffee, then wandered through the canals of Venice. We both wanted to go to Burano, so we bought a ticket and arrived midday to explore the colorful town. At the end of the day, when @merveeuls (the girl I️ met! She’s Turkish) said “I’m really glad I met you”, my heart melted! I told her I was really glad to meet her & spend the day with her too! How’s that for girls sticking together around the world!? I’ve had some of the best experiences with other solo female travelers I’ve met around the world! I️ get a lot of messages from you about being nervous about solo travel, but there are quite a few of us out there & I’m sure we can all agree that somehow things just come together!⠀

TAJ MAHAL, INDIA // A new view of a well known architectural masterpiece, by Sabrina @sbri_bri⠀
______⠀

Traveller Tip From Sabrina ↠ Visiting the Taj Mahal was without a doubt the highlight of my trip to india. We woke up at 4:30am trying to be among the first ones to get in. Having seen photos of the Taj, I never expected to be so astonished. The Taj Mahal appears to gradually alter its color in the changing light of the day. It’s well worth the effort to get up early and spend sunrise there, as it majestically reveals itself.⠀

MIRACLE GARDENS, DUBAI // Tag your travel bestie who you would like to visit this spot with! Adorable capture from Jenny @jetset_jen with Siobhan @they.wanderlust⠀
______⠀

Traveller Tip From Jenny ↠ The Dubai Miracle Garden is the largest natural flower garden in the world with around 100 million beautiful blooms. The Alice In Wonderland-style park is only open during the winter months from November until May and it’s best to arrive when the gates open at 9am to beat the crowds. Stop by the butterfly garden next door on your way home.

NINH BINH, VIETNAM // Another stunning photo from Kelsey @milesofsmiles._ exploring Vietnam⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER INFORMATION // The Bích Động Pagoda is a series of three temples built into the cliff side that are over 500 years old. The pagoda is a popular tourist destination in northern Vietnam and part of the Tràng An Scenic Landscape Complex UNESCO World Heritage site. ⠀

The pagoda is located in Ninh Binh province, near the village of Tam Cốc. It consists of two distinct attractions: Tam Cốc, a flooded cave karst system and Bích Động, a series of mountain pagodas.⠀

CASABLANCA, MORROCO // How beautiful is this architecture? Stunning shot by Abena @beautifully.flawed.one ⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER TIP // Hassan II Mosque, one of the largest moques in the world, serves as the main mosque in Casablanca, Morocco, a port city and commercial hub in western Morocco. The mosque is know its beauty and grandness, appropriate descriptions for a building commissioned by a king. In 1980 King Hassan II commissioned the mosque to create a single landmark monument in Casablanca.

FEZ, MOROCCO // New article from We Are Travel Girls Senior Contributor Charlotte @luluescapes sharing the 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Fez ⠀
______⠀

“I’d been wanting to visit Fez for a long time now and finally went in November for a long weekend with a girlfriend. It’s the perfect time frame to visit Fez, but if you want to also go to Chefchaouen (4 hours away) then I’d suggest adding another day or two.

The medina of Fez has a remarkable history dating back to the late 8th century and you can really feel this when you wander around the narrow streets. When in Fez, you have to keep your eyes open all the time because there are beautiful spots everywhere that are perfect for Instagram!”⠀

My favorite part about the retreat was getting to discover Bali with such a cool, ambitious, driven group of women! I met some amazing women who I hope to stay connected with, I conquered fears and had adventures I will cherish forever! I also learned a lot about what I want to do with my blog and how to build my brand. I hope to stay an active member of the WATG community and can’t wait for more getaways and meet-ups!.”⠀

I’m also starting my own company and in the process of building my brand, so I was excited to learn from WATG in a beautiful, exotic place.⠀

Hands down my favorite part of the retreat was meeting 12 other AMAZING women. I loved that from day 1, it felt like we had all known each other for years already. Also, everything about how to start building a brand! It was super helpful to be able to learn from WATG as well as the other women in the workshops. Everyone is doing something different, so it was really interesting to learn about how others are building their brands and what is working for them.”⠀

Meet Alexandra Saper @thewayfaress, a lawyer from Washington DC who recently launched her travel blog. You may have already seen that over the next few weeks we are introducing you to the women who joined our first retreats in Bali, sharing who they are and why they joined the trip so that you can connect with them and see if you will find your tribe at a future @travelgirlsgetaways! ⠀⠀⠀⠀
______⠀⠀
⠀⠀
We asked Alexandra why she joined the trip and what she took away from the experience, “I joined the Bali retreat because the WATG newsletter announcing the trip landed in my inbox within just a week or so of deciding to get serious about my travel blog. I’ve been dying to see Bali, and to do it in an educational context, surrounded by like-minded women, while learning the nitty-gritty of how to run a blogging business from some of my favorite travel lady bosses, sounded like the best way (and perfect timing) to explore this beautiful island on the other side of the world!⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I took so much more from the retreat than just a fun trip to Bali (which, of course, it was). I made lifelong friends and travel buddies, learned so much not just from the workshops, but also informally from the other women on the retreat, and left feeling equipped, empowered, and excited to start digging into the next steps in growing my blog. I’m looking forward to stepping into 2018 with the tools to develop and advance my blogging business, and certainly with another WATG retreat on the horizon! Maybe all of them?? 😆”

We asked Tori why she joined the trip and what she took away from the experience, “I joined the retreat to learn more about travel blogging and growing my own travel blog, Tori Was Here. I also wanted the opportunity to network with a bunch of awesome women with the same passion while seeing and exploring beautiful Bali. My favorite thing about the retreat was the workshops, swimming next to a waterfall, playing with monkey’s and Sunday’s beach club! ⠀

What I took away from the retreat was the SEO lesson (I have got myself as the #1 search on Google already!) and how to handle sponsorships. What is next for me is to quit the 9-5 grind to become a digital nomad while traveling the world with my blog.”⠀

We were so impressed by all of the women who joined us and over the next few weeks we will introduce you to each and every one of them, sharing their background, what led them to joining the trip and what they took away from the experience. ⠀⠀

We Are Travel Girls Friday Favourites // Every Friday Founders @beckyvandijk and @vanessarivers share some of our favourite travel destinations, activities, travel products and travel tips with you!⠀
______⠀

This weeks Friday Favorite is @kennyflowers_ and @kiniflowers. We met the founder Kenny last year in Bali and immediatly hit it off with this awesome guy who was visiting from the US. Kenny started his hawaiian shirt company to combat the fact he couldn’t find cool shirts for himself and has branched out to cute mini-wraps for girls! (probably due to the fact girls kept pinching the shirts to wear over their bikinis – which is also a super cute look!)⠀

Kenny kindly gifted each girl on our recent Bali retreats one of these wraps and they looked great teamed with a bikini and a coconut. These matching wraps are perfect for just you or for your group of girlfriends, so head over and check out the collection… And you may just recognise his lovely travel blogger girlfriend globetrotting in these designs!⠀

EMERALD LAKE, CANADA // Welcoming colder weather with open arms! Beautiful capture by Marti @enchanted.forest ⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER TIP // Emerald Lake, known for its shockingly aqua water color, is located in Yoho National Park in Alberta, Canada. At over 2,000 meters from sea level, this glacially fed lake is cold year round. Hikers can experience views from all over the lake, but be sure to come prepared with sunscreen, water, snacks, and bug repellent – even in the winter!⠀

HANOI, VIETNAM // Aren’t you glad places like this exist?! Beautiful capture by Kelsey @milesofsmiles._⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER TIP // The hustle and bustle of Hanoi gives tourists a plethora of things to do and see, one thing you should add to your list is visiting the Imperial Citadel of Thăng Long, a UNESCO world Heritage Site. With an entrance fee of only 30.000 dong ($1.50 USD), this is an inexpensive way to see the history and culture of Vietnam through gardens, ancient palaces and roads, and French influenced architecture. ⠀

LA FORTUNA WATERFALL, COSTA RICA // Chasing waterfalls with Lauren Cude @adventure_seeker28 in Costa Rica! ⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER TIP by Lauren // Last year I visited Costa Rica for the first time, and it instantly stole my heart. One place in particular was La Fortuna Waterfall. Usually you can swim in the pool where the waterfall runs into, but due to heavy rain recently there the water was too rough. Still made for a great view to get close and enjoy the beautiful views. If you are able to visit Costa Rica, make sure to stop by this waterfall. It is a hike down, but so worth it. Plus if you turn around from this view the river goes on for a while and has plenty of places to sunbathe and explore even more gorgeous views.⠀

ABU DHABI // A visit to Abu Dhabi should include a stop at the stunning Emirate Palace hotel captured by @marthamanz ⠀
______⠀

TRAVELLER TIP // There are many landmark buildings across the world. In terms of construction costs, Emirates Palace takes the fourth position being one of the most expensive hotels ever built. The design represents traditional Arabian elements like domes, and most of the suites are decorated in marble and gold. Thats why when visiting Abu Dhabi, you should visit, they don’t ask for any reservation and you are totally free to enter and wander around this spectacular building. Also you will get a perfect view of the iconic Etihad Tower from there.⠀

We Are Travel Girls Friday Favourites // Every Friday Founders @beckyvandijk and @vanessarivers share some of our favourite travel destinations, activities, travel products and travel tips with you!⠀
______⠀

This weeks Friday Favorite is @cocobelledesigns. Cocobelle was founded in 2004 by Lucy Peglar and Ignacio Bussy. A love of travel and the ocean inspired the pair to create a sandal and accessory collection that is today produced in both Bali and Italy, embracing authentic Balinese-inspired patterns and centuries-old Italian artistry. Cocobelle describe their collections as “refined, beautiful, wild, comfortable and timeless.”⠀

A huge thank you goes to Cocobelle who have been one of the official sponsors for our We Are Travel Girls Bali Retreat, the first of many @travelgirlsgetaways around the world. Each guest on our retreat was gifted one of these gorgeous Pom Pom Beach Bags as part of their retreat gift bag which was the perfect companion on all of our day trips around the island.⠀

Head over to CocobelleDesigns.com to shop the collection.⠀
