As usual, this is our go-to stroller for travel. As much as I love this stroller, I’m going to have to say that while I did use it a small handful of times, it really wasn’t as necessary for this trip. It was too hot in the UAE to stay outside too long so we were in a car whenever we had to go outside and the terrain in Petra and Wadi Rum was not stroller friendly. Finally, in the Maldives, we were either on a private beach or in the water most of the time. If you wan’t to pack super light, I’d recommend that you leave your stroller at home!
Briggs and Riley Baseline Large Expandable Spinner
This has been our go-to suitcase since purchasing and hasn’t failed us yet. Haven’t had to use the lifetime warranty yet even though we’ve been pretty rough with it.
Briggs and Riley Baseline Domestic Carry on
Like it’s bigger cousin, this is our go-to carry on suitcase. Bulletproof and dependable, with these two suitcases, we have more than enough space to hold two weeks worth of clothing and toiletries.
High Sierra Swerve Backpack
I’ve been traveling with this backpack before Ava and it is still solid. While this might not be the lightest or fanciest backpack you can buy, the durability on this is legendary.
Infantino Sash Wrap and Tie Baby Carrier
Ava tends to have issues falling asleep sometimes and needs a bit of rocking still (even at home), especially when we arrive into a new country. This helped immensely! Even if your little one knocks out easily during sleep, we’d recommend this. Ava had fallen asleep in Petra and we had forgotten to bring this with us. I ended up carrying her in my arms for a little over a mile, which left me exhausted and dehydrated afterwards.
Definitely a must-have, it helped cool Ava down when we had to be outside in the heat (Petra and Wadi Rum)
Key Power Universal All in One International Outlet Travel Adapter with USB Charger
This has been with us on every trip and will likely be with us for many more
This watch was built for conditions like this - virtually element proof and unbreakable. Plus, changing timezones on this watch was a breeze as well (we were in at least 4 different zones!).
