Road Trip with 10 Month Old

As I write this post, I can officially say that we survived our first road trip from Atlanta, GA to Naples, FL- approximately 9 hours each way!!!! If you want to skip the whole story and just check out our favorite travel accesories click here

First and foremost, let me just say that a long trip like this requires a few breaks. I would say comfortably, if timed right, Waylon was able to sit for a maximum of 3.5 hours (more if driving in the evening). When I say "timed right" I mean during day nap time or evening sleep cycle. This of course meant having mostly everything packed and ready to go so that at the first sight of a yawn or sleepy eye we could scatter to get the diaper bag, waters, bottles, etc in order to hit the road and maximize drive time.

Honeymoon at Rosewood Mayakoba

My husband and I decided to go to Mexico with our close friends and family for the best day of our lives- our wedding! We stayed a week at Hacienda Corazon and although we had the time of our lives we were ready for some "alone time" and were seeking instant relaxation. Rosewood Mayakoba delivered instant results- and more!

When pulling up to the resort (after driving for about 10-15 minutes down the intentionally bumpy road which helps to keep tourists and unwanted traffic out) we were kindly greeted by the Mayakoba staff with incredible green detox smoothies. It took only a few minutes to sign in as guests and we were taken over to a beautiful electric boat that would eventually guide us to our eco house on the lagoon. I could have ended my trip there, it was so beautiful.
