Cervecería Kunstmann, Valdivia - Chile  //  intrepidmonkeys.com

Sleep deprived and a little jaded from a day trip to Niebla that wasn’t as fruitful as we’d hoped, we jumped off the bus at Cerveceria Kunstmann hoping for the best. When I say ‘jumped off the bus’ I mean dragged the pram down the stairs and barely managed to grab Alec’s jumper that was being flung from one of the passengers as the bus roared away, only shutting the back door several 100 metres down the road.

We could understand this behaviour the first few times we caught our son tucking into a nectarine or pear that we had left in the baby bag after an outing. But when we found him munching through banana skins we couldn’t believe our eyes!

5 Tips to Deal with Lack of Sleep Travelling with Baby // www.intrepidmonkeys.com
Travelling with an 8 month old bub is character building (and relationship building) to say the least! Unfortunately one of our friend’s comment “oh that’s great, Ollie will be able to sleep anywhere by the time you get back” was slightly misguided. Instead we’ve found that if you have an average sleeper before travelling, expect them to potentially turn into a terrible sleeper when on the road!!

Lake Tarawera, New Zealand // www.intrepidmonkeys.com

On the 29th Dec 2012, we all arrived en masse to the bach we rented on Lake Tarawera, New Zealand. No mobile coverage or internet meant there was mucho relaxing, reading and walks around the lake through the dense bush.
