1. First up, What’s your favorite destination?

Brazil.  Rio is the sexiest city in the world, it has everything. And then, only a few hours away; Bahía with insane surf beaches , jungle, crazy good caiprihinas, breathtaking nature. It´s also not so touristic and exploited. It´s possible to find more than one hidden place where to relax completely up there..  I left a piece of my heart in Brazil when I was there the first time! That´s also why Rio is one of my daughters middle names…

2. What makes the perfect getaway for your family?

Good weather, a nice beach and a lot of things to do after the day is done. We usually get restless pretty quickly! So the ultimate getaway also includes good restaurants, (good food on vacation is a must!) one or two cozy bars, good surfing. A pretty town close by to explore in the evenings are important, preferably also a very romantic one with old houses and small treasure shops…

3. How would you describe your vacation/beach style?

It depends on destination of course, but I´m a bikini girl at heart with jeans shorts, a t-shirt or a big cotton shirt on -most of the time. I can´t live without my sunglasses as well.

4. What 3 items would you be lost without when you travel?

Facial mist from Björk & Berries, a notebook and a pen.

5. Your best advice for keeping your baby happy when you travel?

Ipad with music and baby tv, a lot of good snacks and her lovie when she get´s tired!

6. What’s in your beach-bag?

Shades, 50+ sunscreen from Rudolph Care,facial mist from Björk & Berries, an old tourist cap from somewhere for when the sun stands too high that I can´t see huge beach towel for the whole family to sit on, a few coronas, sliced watermelon, pirates booty(an american snack we´re addicted to, a mini music player and last but not least stuff to play in the sand with for baby A.

 7. All time favorite resort?
We don´t go to resorts, but I have a favorite little bed and breakfast in Bahía, Brazil…

8. What’s in your hand luggage when you travel?

When I travel on my own I don´t wanna check in so I´ve got everything I need within reach. But the most important things to have in my handbag is again the notebook and pen of course, a silk sleeping mask, facial spray, iPhone charger, mini iPad, phone, lip balm, handcream, headphones and if it´s a long flight I´ve got a sketch pad and a few pens… I´ve also probably got a few healthy snacks and 2 bottles of coconut water if I´m lucky.

When the whole family goes I´ve goy plenty of snacks for everyone. Besides Anaïs, I need to keep my husband happy and he does´t know when he get´s hungry..  We´re a snacking family! I always pack an extra set of clothes for Anaïs, one or two books for her, two linen blankets from eco-brand Aden&Anaïs, they´re amazing for flights. Super light but they keep her warm when it´s cold and cool down when it´s hot. I´ve also got a magazine just in case. I never read it but it feels good to know I´ve got it if magic happens.
