Just thought I should do a quick introduction.

I've semi-lurked round here for a while, use the accomadation page quite a lot but only just got around to using the forums and making an account.

Currently working full time + married with a 3 year old daughter so no massive rtw trips or long term excursions planned to be done too soon but trying to get in as many small trips around the UK and Europe as we can until the little one's old enough to go further afield.

Think thats about it. :]

Welcome aboard. You know even if you can't travel at the moment, thinking about travel kind of helps... a little. Feel free to ask anyone any questions which will get you closer to your dream destination.
Don't worry, the world is still waiting for you...

Hey chemica, glad you said hello! Having a little kid sure does make a difference to travel plans. We haven't really left the country since our kids were born (2 and a half years and 7 months old)! Can't believe it's been that long really.

That's all set to change - we're planning a trip to San Diego for next year and will just be staying in one spot for a whole month. Well maybe a weekend trip or two to some interesting locations nearby. I figure this kind of travel is pretty good for little ones since they get a chance to settle and have a place that feels a bit like home (we'll stay in a vacation rental rather than a hotel).

Hope to see you around the forums more.

Yeah, definitely changes any trvael plans drastically.
We're just doing small weekend trips around the UK when we have a babysitter for now and waiting to see how interested she'll be in travelling somewhere by next year.
Sounds like a good idea about setting up somewhere for a while so they can get used to it.
Definitely something I might try and look into next year or so. Hopefully :]
