Hey loves hope you’re well today… I’m going to have to make my blogs super short, or as short as it takes Malia to eat an apple. Yeah she’s busy with an apple right now, I should buy them more often so I can write more blogs ha. So it’s been a while since I wrote anything on here and I think I usually put myself off every time I think to write long blogs, so here we go, just a short one today.

We’ve been on the road for over a month now and so far we’ve run an escape in Kenya, one in the Philippines and now we’re in Thailand on a 10 days break before we dive into our next two escapes here. So what has it been like since bringing a nanny away with us? Easier? Harder? Regrets? No regrets? Awkward convos? Here we go…

Since having Louise come away with us, both me and Adam have been able to focus solely on our business and the guests during escape weeks. Out of escapes weeks we’ve actually managed to work solid 8 hr days and be super productive with our work. Things are actually moving forward, compared to last year when we had no help and we both felt like we were getting nowhere.

So you’re probably thinking how about our private space, family time etc? All is good in this area too. We go off and have dinners alone and we do our own things when we need to. Louise is a pretty independent person as well, so she likes doing her own thing. It’s win win for everyone. We get to work longer than 10 minutes without being interrupted by a loud toddler and she gets to travel the world.

Malia is now a pro at flying and as soon as she sees an airplane she excitedly points at it eager to get on. Armed with a few toys, snacks, in flight magazines (yes they are interested in everything) and some Dave & Eva downloaded cartoons on our phone, our flights have become a breeze. Let me know if you want me to write a more detailed blog about travelling with a baby. I’ve tried it all trust me ;)

Alright I’ll leave it here for now and I’ll go cut up some watermelon to eat on the roof top while we watch the sunset. Daddy isn’t feeling well today, so it’s me and squish. See you next time.
