Most people wouldn’t even consider packing up their home and travelling the world, let alone do so with an 10-week-old baby – which is exactly what Karen Edwards, 31, and partner Shaun Bayes, from London, did following the birth of daughter, Esmé.
Boarding a plane when the tot was not yet three months old, the family flew across the world to explore Asia, Australia and New Zealand, for 10 months during their time off from work.
“The overall aim is to inspire like-minded travel loving parents – your travel days do not have to be over,” said Karen. “It is all about incorporating your little person into your way of life. You can still do everything, including snorkelling and diving, but you just take it in turns. I can’t imagine having spent my maternity leave any other way.” The travelling trio is currently in Thailand and going to Cambodia next!Advertisement
