This is a story about a never ending journey, a story about hitchhiking a boat to the end of the world, about dancing with the dragon and about that dreams can come true.
And imagine, the story is also about a little baby boy. His name is Hugó.
This story started a few weeks ago on a sunny Tuesday afternoon, when Tekla, the creative and social media marketing manager from Liliputi, saved Zoé’s ass with an unexpected message. It was a busy time. We were preparing for our travel to the Canary Islands. Joshua was writing the lead guitar for his new album “LoveRevolution” and working on a sticker for his new blog novel “Carlos Springfield – Life is nothing”. Zoé was painting on the illustrations for our kidbook “Lola and the Ice Cream Conspiracy”, when the trouble started. Our dogs were barking, Zoé turned and kicked a mug with peppermint tea. All the tea was going on the sticker. Joshua was really angry, when the phone lit up.
Tekla wrote us: “I work at Liliputi, but I have to tell you honestly that I do not know you from there. Few years ago you published an article in a Hungarian women’s magazine, that I read and it completely enchanted me. From then I followed your blog, I read everything and loved it. But somehow at one point I forgot about it, When I got the e-mail that you sent to Liliputi with the pictures and text, I almost fainted. I could not believe that such a coincidence can happen.”
Tekla remembered good. Two years ago we published an article in the Marie Claire about our life, travel and art: Beach on four wheels.
After this article many things has happened. We finished building up our Off-Grid Home in a beautiful nature reserve in the North of Portugal, realized that we grown out that dream, traveled all around Europe and then another soul joined us on our journey. Zoé was pregnant, our first son, Hugó was on his way.
We moved to Hungary, where Hugó was born in a birthhouse. It was an amazing and very special day, that we will never forget and made us very happy!
Already before it was decided that our travel will never end. Many people told us, it is impossible to travel with a baby. Well, until now in the four monthes together we visited four countries, were traveling with car, with aeroplane and with train. It was amazing, Hugó and we loved it.
About our two week trip to Germany in May we were sending a short article to Liliputi. This was, when Tekla heard about us again. If you want to have a look, here it is: Coming home.
Already before we were enthusiastic users of the Liliputi products. For that we decided to cooperate with Liliputi and write also on their page about our new travel to the Canary Islands with pictures on the coast of the North sea, on the tulip fields of the Neatherlands, on the french primavera, in the mountains of Portugal, in the south of Spain…and whereever the wind blows us.
The first step of the travel was to sign the final contract to sell one of our properties in Portugal. So we went with train to Budapest…
…and flew to Portugal.
For us one of the most important things on travel is that Hugó feels good. One thing that helps us the most is a buckle carrier.
On our travel to Germany we also took the baby cart, but in the end we never used it, it was only ballast.
This time when we flew to Portugal, we only took the buckle carrier, and we did not regret it for one moment. We could discover Budapest…
…celebrate the biggest city fest, Sao Joao in Porto….
explore our magical valley…
and even taking the aeroplane was no problem.
Another situation on travel is changing diapers. What you need here is a foldable diaper tray. And like this you can combine the necessary things with the beautiful ones:
Also on travel we think about the environment. We use only cloth diapers and we love it.
Another important thing is not to be shy. There is nothing more natural and more beautiful than a mother feeding her child.

Love and hugs,
Zoé and Joshua
