It’s been a big year for bébé voyage! It all started off as an idea to write a travel book for parents traveling with babies. One thing lead to the next, and now we have a thriving worldwide community of traveling parents, a website (complete with an e-store and blog), and a web series in the works… But that’s not all, we have big plans for the future so watch this space!
