I know everyone’s been busy on the bridge between spring break and summer’s anticipated arrival (ahem, rain clouds, you can leave now), so here is a recap of Travels with Baby topics and news.
In the Blog:
Awards?! This blog that I humbly thank you for subscribing to was named to two prestigious lists – the Tripbase.com 10 best family travel blogs and the Babble.com 25 best travel blogs for families (#2 in Insider Tips & Tricks). I am very honored to be honored! If you email subscribers haven’t seen my cool award badges yet, click the headline of this post (or here) – and leave me a comment while you’re at it. (Hey, it gets lonely at this water cooler!)
Also, don’t miss the latest Pack This!, Tip Tuesday, and Worthy Website features I continue to post, along with my Photo Faves (love the view from the toilet at Casa Vista!).
On the Website:
If you’re curious about where we stayed in Costa Rica, check out the reviews of our first three amazing accommodations up now (and more soon):
- Buena Vista Hotel, Alajuela (San Jose / Central Valley)
- Casa Vista vacation rental house, Playa Manzanillo (Puntarenas/Nicoya Peninsula)
- Blue Batik villa, Playa Hermosa (Puntarenas/Nicoya Peninsula)
If you haven’t had a chance yet to enjoy Our dinner with a PrivateChef in Costa Rica, I hope you will…and you can keep track of all our Costa Rica tips and reviews as we add them here.
There are also new additions to the Worldwide Directory of Baby Gear Rentals. If you are thinking of renting gear for your trip this summer, be sure to make your reservation ASAP.
Be sure to bookmarkthe Trip Planning page for quick links to those areas that may help you lay your family’s travel plans—or get motivated to do so!
The new Destinations page continues to grow as well. Be sure to stop by for ideas and advice about the places you plan to go.

Giveaway in Progress!
Yes, I realize that most of you reading this already have both guidebooks (thank you!). Nevertheless, I’ll be giving away a signed set of both books next week. Tell your friends, or heck, enter to win the set for them (or keep the signed set for yourself, I won’t tell). Just click here and leave a comment to the latest Q2U blog post. I look forward to hearing your answers. (My apologies to those who were unable to post when it first went live! And since I haven’t had a lot of time to promote this one, your odds are good!)
And finally… watch for me at your doctor’s office.
No, I’m NOT pregnant, but I’ve been included in an article in the new issue of Fit Pregnancy magazine. Thank you, editors!
