Expecting parents are known to take part in a ritual before giving birth called babymoon. It is the time when father- and mother-to-be go on a vacation before a new addition to the family comes along. For some, it is the last time the couple can enjoy a holiday with each other only. Who knows until how long they will get the chance to get away from the kids?
Babymoon is also a great chance to plan a destination for a maternity photo session, where parents-to-be can make lasting memories by hiring a photographer to capture your moments. If Europe is on your list for babymoon, here are some great choices:
If you haven’t watched “The Fault in Our Stars”, you should. The movie is set in the capital city of the Netherlands and you will fall in love with the place. Amsterdam has more than 100 kilometers of canal and walking along the river is a must. You will see flower-decorated bridges and Dutch-style buildings lining up the sidewalk. There are waterfront cafés and shops to visit. With the warm colours of the buildings, the wide walkways, the shady trees, this city has a relaxed atmosphere perfect for a mommy-to-be, great for the background to your maternity photos.
Crossing over to the boot-shaped country, you will find Amalfi on Italy’s southwest coast. This pretty and petite town is next to the sea, which means sun-filled piazzas and beaches! You can walk from end to end in about 20 minutes, perfect for a lazy stroll in the afternoon while munching on a delicious gelato. Enjoy authentic Italian pasta in the restaurants, visit historical buildings, or just enjoy the view! Clean air and panorama perfect for maternity photos, good for the baby and the mommy.
If you love the arts and classical Europe, then Vienna is the place to go. Immersed in history and culture, this Austrian city will tickle your curiosity everywhere you turn. For mothers craving for good food, try Wiener Schnitzel, Tafelspitz (prime boiled beef), and other Austrian cuisines along with some wine (only for the dad-to-be though!). Who knows, maybe the birthplace of Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss will inspire your baby.
This city in England has a lot to offer from history and culture to fine food and good times. Travel back in time as you walk around the streets of London to a time of Kings and Queens. You might even spot a royal somewhere if you’re lucky! Stroll along the alleys and visit small cafés and shops. This vibrant city is sure to keep pregnant mothers happy and excited!
