hat bucket list adventures in the world can you safely take kids? Our desire to explore the globe was tempered by not finding enough practical information about where we could comfortably take our young daughter. We started  slowly, and now we’ve been to over 50 countries with her in tow, covering everything from the Antarctic & Arctic poles, the majestic deserts of Namibia & Chile, to the great plains in Bolivia & Mongolia. We’d like to share what we’ve learnt, and hope it’ll be useful when you plan  your next great experience.

Chile: Torres del Paine – The puma that stalked Colette

Viewpoint from the Nest : Travel parenting insights The Torres Del Paine is not a walk in the park; fierce winds and an unpredictable climate can make it wilder than most other reserves we’ve been to. Boasting everything from glaciers, lakes, valleys and gorgeous hikes, it’s worth the small effort of having waterproof clothing, and some measure of patience to...

Chile: Torres Del Paine – The puma who came for lunch
