This week we’re joined by Katie and Ben Zweber, the adventurous duo behind the popular travel blog, Two Wandering Soles, as they share their incredible experiences of exploring the world with their baby, Juniper. From the comfort of their custom-built camper van, to backpacking and flying overseas as a family, they have aimed to make the world their baby’s playground.

We hear about how Katie and Ben customized their camper van for their growing family, what they did to help their daughter get comfortable on the road (and build their confidence traveling as new parents), and the ways their travel style is evolving with Juniper as she grows and develops her own interests.

As we learn from Katie and Ben, traveling with a baby doesn’t mean you have to give up your love for adventure. With careful planning, a spirit of adventure, and a willingness to adapt, you can nurture a love for exploration in your child, create memories that will last a lifetime, and experience the world in a new light – through a child’s eyes.
