Yes. You read that correctly! The Economical Excursionists are adding to the pack!!! (and c’mon is this not one of the most unique pregnancy announcements you’ve seen that is SPOT on for our personalities!?)
By now, you’ve probably read Facebook status updates from me (click here to Like our Page to get even more great stories, tips and suggestions on traveling) or gotten the hint from other comments, but our ‘lil Bavarian Baby Brown will be meeting this big-wide world in mid March!
After almost 40 countries visited in the last four years alone, we aren’t quite sure we want to stop seeing the world, which is why we decided to stay a little longer in Germany rather than moving back to the US right away.
With that being said, we aren’t naive and know that much of our travel and experiences are about to change drastically!!!
So, I want to hear from YOU!
Give us soon-to-be- parents your best advice for taking your little one(s) on a trip. Whether it is to Grandma’s across the state or to a whole new country, we want to hear your best tips, tricks and advice on how to show this wonderful world to our little one.

Former teacher turned blogger turned mom turned full time travel addict, LeAnna has never been one to live life by the rules. Whether she is moving to a farm in Switzerland to learn to make cheese (Yes, CHEESE), jumping off a mountain to paraglide over Cinderella castles, or taking her baby all over the world with nothing but a backpack on their backs, LeAnna designs and defines her OWN life. LeAnna, her husband Andy, and kiddo, "Lil B" love to live a minimal lifestyle, not only for the "thrill" of pinching pennies but in order to save for traveling the world. Considering over 40 countries and 90+ cities have been explored, we'd say they are doing something right!

Congratulations!! How exciting for you!
Travel with kids is a different beast, but it can be so rewarding! (And I’m saying this within hours of returning to Italy after a 10-day visit with family in the US… with 2- and 4-year old boys in tow.) My biggest piece of advice is to not psych yourself out by overthinking your kiddo’s schedule in your travel plans. We often felt paralyzed by the fear of “What If Things Don’t Go Smoothly” and so didn’t travel nearly as much as we meant to when we lived in England. We absolutely regretted that and feel so lucky to have another shot to try again. Every child travels differently at different ages, but the more you do it, the more natural it is to them.
One of my favorite ways that we’ve adapted is to divide and conquer: one of us will stay with a kid (or two) at a park or kid-friendly spot while the other goes to see a sight that might not hold the whole family’s interest. It’s an awesome way to recharge AND it’s a great conversation starter when you reunite.
