About

Dear Nomad Parents,

Having a Nomad, No(t)Mad Bebe is a dream of mine, what about you?

Traveling is supposed to be fun, relaxing and exciting, but let’s face it with a baby or a kid it can get tricky. Because I want you to enjoy your trip as much as possible, I created a unique magazine designed specially for families on the road. Don’t be mislead by the title, I will give advice good for kids of all ages, as my Céleste is not gonna stay a bébé for much longer…

Nomad Bébé, will give you all the child travel essentials you need to take or live with your family around the world. You will also find unique City Guides, specially designed for families. They will include all the kid-friendly activities, restaurant, hotels you need to know about wherever you are. We’ve also came up with inventive new sections you won’t find in any other guide books such as best nap routes for your baby to sleep and for you to visit!

For your convenience, each City Guide will also be available in a more detailed version as an Ebook. The first ever Family Travel Guide made as an Ebook.

We also thought about bringing the world to you by offering toys made in our city guide destinations. We have carefully chosen the most fun and elegant locally crafted toys. You might occasionally find some clothes or baby gear in the section, also hand-made in location.

The nomad Maman – Founder of Nomad Bébé

 

My name is Charlotte Burgoyne. I have a one year old daughter, Celeste, and would love to add four more brother or sister to the tribe. With such a plan friends and families often question my ability to keep living abroad, jumping from one country to the next every couple of years. But I firmly believe that it is doable. And anyway, I don’t think I have much of a choice.

I’ve simply found myself when I started living abroad. I was 21 when I left Paris for good with my diploma of journalism in my pocket. Of all places, I settled down in the Syrian capital Damascus. I quickly started working as a free lancer for The International French Radio (RFI), International News Channel France24, Magazine channel Arte and a bunch of writing outlets. And I also quickly realized that I had found myself. I simply loved being surrounded by a new language, challenge by a different culture. It all made me feel more alive.

`Few years later, I was glad to find a like-minded husband in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen where I had moved. We both realized that we wanted the same lifestyle: living around the world with five kids. Bingo. Three years later we were married and Celeste was born in San Francisco. In her first year of life, she travelled two times to Uruguay, and one time to Argentina, France, New York, Hawaii and tens of trips across California. My husband and I plan on moving to Asia in a near future, a lot of new adventure in perspective for my nomad Céleste. Our goal is two move every 2 to 4 years to a new country to try to expose our family to as many cultures and people as possible.

Our trips have not all been easy. In Celeste’s first year of life, we’ve taken her to Uruguay, Argentina, France, Hawaii, New York, and several trips around California. I will never forget this 9 hour night flight to Paris during which she slept 30minutes, the 4 hours of hysteric crying in California Wine Country or that night we had an unexpected 12 hours layover in Miami with a sick baby…

All these times I wished I had a source of information to refer to, to help me. But I could not find any. I had to gather and compare information from different websites. I never got a clear, helpful and practical answer on how to deal with jet lag, how to calm down a crying baby on a plane, how to find baby food where I go… I solved these problems when I faced them, and I would like to share my findings with you to help you in your travels. This is why Nomad Bébé was born.

I’de love to hear from you, reach out at : contactnomadbebe@gmail.com.

Merci for stopping by,

Charlotte.
