Is anyone planning on doing some travelling whilst WTT?


Hey!

I was just wondering whether travelling/going on a few holidays was something that you wanted to do between now and starting to try?

If travelling is/was in your plans how many places did you manage to see in over what period of time?

Trying to figure out wehther i'm being realistic in terms of the number of places i want to see without taking a few months out of work(which i don't really want to do).

My fiance is waiting for me to be ready,he said ideally he doesn't want to wait any later than summer 2012(next year...my gosh!so soon!!!).

We've been on a couple holidays together already and we're hoping to try and do two places for our honeymoon and hopefully a couple more when he's on school holidays(he's a primary school teacher).

Doing a bit more travelling before babies is more important to me than to him so even if i can't see all these places with him i'll go with friends and family members.

Yep we are! We're thinking of TTC around Dec/Jan but before that we've got trips to Egypt, New York and New Zealand planned so far! May also do a few shorter city breaks in that time too. It's me who's really wanting to TTC at the moment and just waiting for DH to be ready so going on a few holidays seems like a great way to pass the time!

What trips are you planning to do if you don't mind me asking?

I agree Aubreee! My DH's family have always told us to make sure we fit in a few big hols before TTC as though once baby's born we won't be able to leave the country! Personally I think it would be amazing to travel with kids. Yes on a practical level it might make things more difficult and plans might have to be changed to accommodate that, but I just think that they have such an incredible view on life/the world that I think travelling with kids can only add to the experience!

When are you hoping to TTC?

We are!!

We were oringnaly going to start TTC in june 2011, but think we shall put that on hold for a year or 2 as we would like to travel first (doubt we can afford it when we have kids)

My hubby isnt too bothered about traveling, its more me. So i plan to travel with friends aswel!!

I am going to cyprus this year for a wedding.

Other places i really want to see are paris, dublin, greece, mexico is a must, new york and las vegas.

We went to Thailand for our honeymoon and it is AMAZING!! and i desperatley want to go back and also see bali too!!

How much we can afford is another thing tho!! xx

Hey Totatola!

Sounds like your going to have an amazing time visiting all these places before you and DH TTC What a way to pass the time too!

Definitely want to go to Brazil next April when Mister is on the Easter Break.
Egypt and New York(same as you )
Thailand
Dubai
Morocco

If I had more time I would also like to go:

Vegas
Hawaii
South Africa
Fijii

Realistically though i know i won't be able to cover all those places in 20 months unless I come into some serious money!lol!

Thats what I want to do aswell Aubreee,go on hol when LO arrives but places like Vegas,New York,Thailand,Brazil don't come across as child friendly to me anyway.So I want to go to all these places before.Have a few more wild and adventuress holidays

Funny that most some of our hol destinations overlap : )

So far i've been:

Cyprus
Miami
Amsterdam
Mexico
Cuba
Jamaica (although i don't really count that as a hol as i have family from there!)

Where have you been so far and how long do you have to see all these places?when are you planning on TTC?

I wish i had two years to travel from now but until July all our money is going into the wedding so can't really get going with the big hols until after we get married and have more !

What time of the year did you go Thailand Cupcake?I was thinking about going there for our honeymoon but don't think the weather is that great at that time of year.

If you can go Mexico GO!that was our first hol together and we both loved it!

I'm trying to cover the places that i may not be able to afford to take my kids anytime soon when they arrive.So I think after LO arrive europe will probably be our focus for hols.Plus theres less travel time involved.

lol i just added Mexico to my list

we both have friends there so I'm thinking it rather possible
Maybe we do the long distance travels before we start TTC and then the ones that don't involve long distance flights with children. But OH is from India so we will deffo have to travel there with kids so i WILL try to combine that with stop overs or sth

I know how the saving feels as that what we had done for last 2 years for our wedding! Feels so nice after the wedding when you have some freedom!

We went to Thailand in June, you can go any time of the year, but just choose the right side. I can't remember which way round it is tho! but to be honest westher there isnt like here, the heat is sooooo intenese! and when it rains it throws it down alot but very short time then drys up again!!xx
