Travelling South America with a Baby – Featured Guest Post on @yTravelblog

June 15, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Last week we were featured on the fantastic y Travel Blog. Excited about our first guest post, we are very grateful that Caz and Craig featured us on their blog.

In our guest post we talked about travelling through South America with a baby, and how:

  • Preparation and routine have been our saviour
  • We often take time out and rely on support networks
  • We totally recommend travelling with a baby

Check out the full guest post here.

The hardest thing we found about writing this guest post was choosing just 5 photos to showcase our trip! So… we decided to post some more pics here that weren’t featured over at y Travel Blog 🙂

Day Trip to Cerro Llao Llao, Bariloche // intrepidmonkeys.com

No one else on the track, the crisp morning dew kissing the long grass as we headed towards Cerro Llao Llao. One of the first walks we did in Bariloche as a family, and definitely an impressive one!

Cerro Llao Llao is 300m high and forms part of a great little walk for the family.

Refugio Frey Walk, Great for All Ages

Refugio Frey Walk - Great for all ages  // intrepidmonkeys.com

Walking down the street holding my mum’s hand when I was young, I had to take a few quick steps every so often to keep up. when I got to double digits, things didn’t change much as my mother has considerably longer legs than mine and I seemed to stop growing at age 12 – apart from the womanly bits! Our Refugio Frey walk was a flash back to those days. Due to a particularly late start, Alec set a cracking pace.

El Bolsón – Bariloche’s ‘Organic’ (Hippie) Cousin

El Bolson - Bariloche's 'Organic' (aka Hippie) Cousin  //  intrepidmonkeys.com

A town full of hippies, hops and the freshest produce, it is definitely one not to be missed. Although a little quiet this time of year, we were sure it had the right vibe to go off during the summer! The autumn colours made for spectacular views everywhere we went. With numerous hikes to refugios (that were still open this time of year) El Bolsón had plenty to offer. Unfortunately as we were only staying one night we didn’t get to explore beyond Bosque Tallado, but you can check out Trek El Bolsón for more info.
