We’ve told you before about Karen Edwards, the new mom who used her maternity leave to travel the world with her daughter, Esme, and her partner, Shaun. The adventure started out as a bonding experience for little Esme with her mom and dad, a way for them to spend time together in those early months while exposing Esme to the wonders of the world.
Now, little Esme is 2 years old, and the adventure continues! What started out as Karen’s maternity leave has now turned into a lifestyle. Karen– under the name Travel Mad Mom– and Shaun– going by Travel Mad Dad– are still travelling the world with Esme. From Africa to Europe to Asia and more… This little family is covering some major ground, working from the road and sharing their adventures on Instagram. Their photos mostly capture Esme in some seriously gorgeous settings.
Check out their adventure below!
