We are Siobhan– that’s me- and my 5 month old daughter Ella.
It’s August 2017. Already we have travelled to four countries, refining our baby-packing list and learning about the culturally different practices for looking after children. Avoiding mosquitos and other earthly health hazards has played a large part in our travel experiences. Fun and tiring, and sometimes testing, we have learned to accept help from many strangers to whom baby Ella has been a magnet of affection and friendship.
Until Ella came along I had dedicated the last 17 years of my life to practicing medicine, the last 20 or more to travelling and the last 10 to surfing the world’s waves. Now, on a short career break from life as a family doctor and as a carer to my brother with Down syndrome, I am finally together with my husband in the same country.
Through this blog I hope to share with you our travel stories, along with some medical insights and maybe even a little medical history!
Good bye Marrakech, See you soon Belfast, Hello Nosara!
