One for the Road: Gutsy Mamas

Our next pick for a travel book that celebrates motherhood is Travelers Tales inspiring Gutsy Mamas: Travel Tips and Wisdom for Mothers on the Road. Although published ten years ago, I’m sure the advice offered up by author Marybeth Bond (the official Gutsy Traveler) is a collection of timeless tips, many of which must still hold true today. This pocket guide for roaming mothers (and grandmothers) serves as a useful tool to anyone traveling with toddlers or teens in tow.

Know an expat mom raising a family overseas? Or maybe a girlfriend who’s in the midst of making multiple trips abroad to finalize an adoption? Bond dispenses invaluable tips for moms of all kinds, with suggestions on how to stay healthy and what works best for keeping kids entertained while en route. The book is also peppered with personal anecdotes from traveling mothers around the world. So whether your a great-grandmother or an expectant mom (or dad!) this book should provide some trusted travel strategies and even a touching story or two as well.

As a follow up to her first gutsy guide, Marybeth released Gutsy Women: More Travel Tips and Wisdom from the Road. She has written a wide variety of travel books for females…and we may even mention another one before this mother-loving week is through.
