Hello, I’m Tykesha and travel is my thing.
I grew up in the tropical, tourist city of Miami, Florida and moved to the Washington, DC area after studying Journalism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
As a native Miamian, my worldview was shaped from the perspective of international tourists and immigrants. Because of this, I have had a thirst to explore other countries most of my life.
I have slowly (when time and money permitted) traveled to all 7 continents. Learning about as many countries and cultures as much as I could. For the most part, I used sales to snag great deals on airfare and I would stay in hostels, home-stays, and cheap hotels to make my trips even more affordable.
Life changed, after the birth of my first child. I went from being a fearless globetrotter to a woman petrified to leave my house with a newborn. I am not sure what it was exactly, but the idea of taking my baby on a trip to Target or the neighborhood grocery store was enough to leave me paralyzed. I had been on flights with screaming babies and antsy children before, I didn’t think I could handle the pressure.
I grieved the loss of my pre-baby life and battled feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and then shame for feeling sad and hopeless. Through trial and error, I have been able to work through my fear of traveling with little ones. I launched Momma Wanderlust to help other moms that might feel stuck when it comes to traveling with children.
It is my mission to share travel tips and tricks to make traveling with little ones much easier. If you’re interested in learning a bit more about me, click here. To connect, you can drop me a line at email@example.com
