I will take my kids everywhere.  But I would like to get Morocco in before we get preggo.

we gave up our dream honeymoon of tahiti and bora bora because it was out of our budget and will be going to riviera maya.

we will be doing that as our pre-baby trip… and also 2 weeks in europe if time/money allows. 🙂

Peru. I want to do the three-day Inca trail to get to Machu Picchu, and I think by the time any children can handle it, I may not. Tongue out

We spent 3 weeks in Thailand as our big ‘pre-responsibliity’ trip in 2009.

And just cause we’ll have more responsibility in 5 weeks doesn’t mean we’ll stop traveling.  Just may take us a little longer to save.  Grammy will either travel with us (so we get some free time on trips) or be watching the kiddos at home 🙂  I see some long weekends away this year – but maybe not a full week trip for a while yet.

Because DH is a bit older than I am and we want to have babies before a certain age but I still have things that I want to do (he’s done lots of travelling), we agreed that we’d start our family 2 years after the wedding – which means getting pregnant about 15 months after…

Anyway, those 2 years are travel filled, we just put all our money into this. We’re going to Europe (Spain and France), then Costa Rica, then Japan… Maybe Mexico or Cuba as well, we just got an invite for that so we’ll see..

Then when the kids are there, we’ll continue travelling, but at a slower pace, and we’ll bring them every second time.

My family didn’t really travel growin up, so I’ve tried to make up for it some on my own.  That being said, we did get pregnant 10 mos after getting married, so our only int’l trip as a couple was to Italy a couple mos earlier…it was great, though!

Luckily, there are a lot of places in the US I’ve never been, so we can do that with kiddos until they are old enough to do international and ease them into that…now if only funds were unlimited!

Two weeks of eating and drinking our way through Tuscany will be our last big hurrah before TTC. We plan to take our child on vacations (especially once they get older), but we couldn’t really vacation the way we do now with a child in tow.

This is why we are going to Europe for our honeymoon. And we are going to try to do Hawaii on our one year anniversary- before babies come into the mix and we aren’t able to go on vacations like that.

we want to spend 2 weeks in europe before we TTC…in fact, once IN europe we may stop not trying Laughing

that’s really it..we’ve both been fortunate to travel a lot, plus we have grandparents who will encourage us to take vacations WITHOUT kids (mostly because they want to watch them).

we want to take a mini vacation pre baby, just b/c we’ve been going through a lot with my husband (he’s having to go through crohns related surgery). it’s a little late now to do a crazy huge vacation since i’m preggo already…. but luckily my siblings gave me a free weekend at a b&b so we’ll be going there.

my parents traveled all over the place with me, so i’m hoping we can do the same with our children.

This is really funny…I started planning an African Safari this morning for next year because I know we’ll want to start trying after then. I’d like to go a bunch of places, but safari costs a lot, so we’ll just save up for that. Maybe I’ll be able to squeeze Ireland in, too. 🙂

FH and I do plan to travel a lot with our kids (travel is a huge part of our lives), but we have two big trips planned between the honeymoon and TTC – one to China and one to India.  We want to go NOW, and it may be awhile before we have kids that are old enough to handle that type of travel.

This is a really fun post, btw.
