NEVER TRAVEL WITHOUT:
My noise cancelling headphones. They make all the difference for the plane. I’ve done my time as the mom with the screaming child! Now it’s my turn to enjoy the ride. AND a refillable water bottle. Hydration is key!
BEST FOODIE FIND:
While on a local beach in Mallorca, we ordered lunch from the beachside shack cafe: grilled swordfish + vegetables with this incredibly fresh chimichurri sauce. I salvate just thinking about it now. There was nothing fancy about it and I still try to recreate the whole meal at home. It’s never the same. Maybe because my toes aren’t in the sand at home!
TOP TRAVEL MEMORY:
Every time my son sees or does something new outside of our home “bubble.” Like when he figured out how to snorkel in the Mediterranean at 3 years old or the shouts of joy going to a Chelsea futbol game at Stamford Bridge, night swimming in our private plunge pool at Rock House or eating apples right off the tree in a New England autumn. It’s just pure magic to give him the gift of travel.
