As moms, we are always making sure our kids are happy and healthy. “Eat your vegetables” “Don’t eat too much candy”, but as a mom that travels, it can be even more difficult. There will inevitably be some unhealthy meals, since I don’t always have a kitchen handy, and unfortunately, I just can’t control everything we eat.

I knew I had to ensure that we stay healthy.

Recently, we decided that it was time for our kids to finally experience the Big Apple!  My husband and I had been many times, but this was their first experience, and I couldn’t wait to see NYC through their eyes. For a child, going from a small town to the big city is a huge change, and I knew it would be fascinating for them. New York City isn’t exactly what I would consider kid friendly, but it still has a lot to offer the young ones. From huge parks to amazingly tall buildings, kids are sure to be captivated by this impressive city.

You can feel it, as soon as you set foot into Edinburgh it hits you… something magical. It’s almost tangible; it’s an energy I haven’t felt anywhere else. You would never question where you are, it doesn’t look, smell, or feel, like any other city; it is undoubtedly Edinburgh. On the first day we arrived there was singing, dancing and bagpipes being played up and down the streets. The merriment was palpable. I’ve read plenty about Edinburgh, but nothing had prepared me for this.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
