Travel Month: September 2015

Personal + Travel

Ok. I can't get over how quickly September flew by and how most days blurred into each other (small baby + too much coffee). My birthday came and went as any other day and was really only marked by beautiful flowers (thanks J!) and a tasty beer at Alaus Biblioteka.

Baby In Search Of and I have been taking nearly daily walks around Vilnius. It is great to get out and enjoy the city while the weather is still warm. This month also was exciting, as J and I had  visitors to show around. J's parents and my parents and sister visited for a bit of time. My parents and sister were just here for a quick week-long visit and just left on Sunday. I certainly jam packed the week I had with my family full of site-seeing, shopping, eating out, and of course, baby time! This Friday's post will chat a bit more about what we did together.


September saw the start of the Traveling Parents' Forum, which is a monthly forum for people to get together to share their experiences or ask questions about traveling with kids. I really have loved working with five other parents and especially enjoyed reading what they had to say. I'm looking forward to the upcoming months as I certainly have many questions about traveling with a baby. Ladies, I've got a lot to learn! (How does it work to bring a carseat/stroller on the plane?! - I'm baffled). We will be answering questions and sharing our experiences about traveling while pregnant on October 19. Stop by to say hi!

Looking Forward To

October is full of fun events spent both indoors and outdoors. So far, we have plans to go pick mushrooms (guided by a knowledgeable Lithuanian friend) . This will be  such a cool cultural experience and is something I've been wanting to do for a while! In the beginning of October the three of us will also be taking a day trip to Trakai. The end of October is J's break from work so we'll be taking a road trip around Lithuania with stops in several towns and cities in the northern part of the country. The trip to Trakai will be our first adventure in public transportation with a baby (good thing the train journey is only 30 to 40 minutes) and the road trip will be our first real trip with a baby. Wish us luck!

What are you looking forward to in October? How was your September?
