I’ve started featuring more family pictures
My love for Instagram truly developed four years ago when we moved to Sweden and I wanted to share every bit of it with my friends. Now I can not stand where we live, and truthfully just feel like a failure for ever even moving to this place. It’s been me, not you.
I haven’t been traveling this year as much as before, and frankly I could tell you several other lame excuses why I haven’t done much with Instagram, but the truth is that I really just didn’t even want to think about Instagram for a while. I decided that I will at least start posting more pictures on my personal account KatjaPresnal, to share pictures of our family life and even home.
I didn’t post as often for a while, but I have loved following the adventures from our community. The people I have gotten to know on Instagram, and the people who loyally have been using #IGtravelThursday and #skimbaco hashtags – even when I haven’t. Connecting with others is really the main reason why I love Instagram, but like in any relationship, when you feel bad about yourself, it is difficult to connect. I have just gotten back to my normal Instagram routine on my Skimbaco account, and am planning on getting more active again. This big news significantly affects this decision: we are moving to one of the most scenic and beautiful places I have ever visited. Stay tuned for the big announcement, but now… follow some of these Instagram friends.
I wanted to highlight some of my traveling friends, who are also moms. These amazing women all show that world travels doesn’t have to stop when you have kids, but in fact they all embrace the global lifestyle, and educate their children about the world.
Gia_matkakuume, Gia, is a Finnish travel blogger on an around the world trip with her husband and young daughter. I admit, I don’t know Gia as well as I would like to, but damn, she has so much fun with her family, that I want to travel with them!
MarocMama, Amanda, owns the Marrakech food tours, and she also blogs about her family’s travel around Africa, Europe and more. Amanda is an American living in Morocco, and I love how much I have been able to learn about Moroccan culture from her.
Dipaolamomma, Lara, gives awesome chicken nuggets of wisdom, literally, that is her blog’s name! Our family met the entire DiPaola family just recently on a trip to Universal Studios, and we immediately felt like we had known each others for a long time. Well, in theory we have – online! Meeting Lara this summer finally in person was one of my highlights of the Orlando trip!
Wildjunket, Nellie, was traveling around the world, doing amazing adventures in the most scenic places on exotic locations, and then she had her first baby last year…. and nothing changed. Nellie is the newest mom on my list, but her baby has already been traveling that much that she is one of my favorite traveling moms right now, and a great role model for those who are right now thinking about having a baby, and how it might affect travels.
Viaggideirospi, Alessandra, is an Italian family travel blogger, who takes her family on adventures near and far. I love that she even visited my home country Finland this summer! Her stunning images of outdoor adventures in Italy also make me see Italy in a completely new way beyond historic sites and pasta!
ActiveKidsClub, Kari, is a Norwegian mom living in Canada, and she is a huge advocate for outdoor play for kids. Kari takes kids out to enjoy the nature around Toronto as much as she can, and takes kids back to Norway, and on epic trips cross the Europe on summers.
