Welcome to Pack Your Passport Baby!

My name is Allyson and I live in Toronto, Canada.  Pre-baby, my husband Mark and I were avid travelers and frequently traveled in the Americas, Europe, Africa - and Asia, our favourite destination.  When our son was born, we were more than a little concerned that our travels would be completely curtailed, however with each passing trip our confidence has grown. 

Our son is now two years old, and we have enjoyed many wonderful travels with him in North America and Europe, and we're chomping at the bit to take him to Asia.  I am a planner at heart and throughout these travels, I thoroughly researched our destinations looking for any advice I could find about traveling with a baby.  Most online advice relates to families with older children so finding specific advice relating to babies and younger children was a bit of a challenge.
Traveling with our son hasn't always been easy, but it has been very rewarding.  I often think about playgrounds our son enjoyed while in Maui, and the gorgeous views Mark and I were treated to at the same time.   I believe most important part about traveling with a child is visiting places the whole family will enjoy, rather than restricting your travels to only child-based destinations.

In this blog I hope to share tips and tricks I've learned along the way, things like keeping a toddler busy on an airplane, choosing an airplane seat and figuring out what to pack.  If you have any comments or suggestions for readers on great child-friendly venues, travel destinations or your own travel tip, please share them by emailing me at packyourpassport@gmail.ca.

I will on occasion include links to an interesting product or destination website.  I do not take any responsibility for the content of these websites, nor do I receive any kick-backs from my recommendation of any product.

  1. Hi there, Mama!

    I blog over at Life With Bellymonster about the special kind of mayhem called "motherhood."
    LOVE what you're creating here - what a fabulous tool and resource for the brave and hardy travellers among us!

    There's a great article in this month's Today's Parent about travelling with kids with special needs - bet you could expand on those ideas!
