Cute 1-Year-Old Baby Has Been Travelling Around The World Since She Was Born

When Karen Edwards, a 31-year-old nurse, and her partner Shaun Bayes announced that they were going to travel the world with their toddler Esmé, everyone thought they were nuts. But, being long-time backpackers, they packed everything into one backpack, took their 10-week-old baby girl and took off. Asia, Australia, and New Zealand were waiting.

?The overall aim is to inspire like-minded travel loving parents ? your travel days do not have to be over,? said Karen. ?It is all about incorporating your little person into your way of life. You can still do everything, including snorkelling and diving, but you just take it in turns. I can?t imagine having spent my maternity leave any other way.? The travelling trio is currently in Thailand and going to Cambodia next!
