Parenting is an incredible blessing and an enormous responsibility. By today’s averages, your next 18-20 years will be spent preparing this young life to launch out on their own. If you are going to get away for some fun in the sun, you and your partner need to do it now. You need a babymoon.
What is a Babymoon?
Babymoons are the current trend for expecting parents, especially first-timers. Couples take them in any trimester, although most tend to go in the 25-32 week range. These are not extreme adventure vacations but instead focus on relaxation and beautiful environments (after all, your extreme adventure in parenting is right around the corner).
Most couples choose locations with beaches, mountain views, scenic sunsets, and short hikes. Don’t forget the exotic food! There may be many hot dog and macaroni and cheese dinners in the near future.
