General Travel Info

Be Prepared to Travel:

One of the things that Six Little Birds really believes in, is being prepared when we travel.  We believe that when people are prepared it empowers them to work through their fears or doubts, and chase their dreams. We know that traveling; especially for moms with children can be scary, nerve wracking and sometimes really hard. However, it is still SO important. 

So, in the spirit of preparedness and dream chasing, we have put together a list of links that you may need when getting ready for an upcoming trip. It has everything from passport guidelines to airline baggage rules. We recognize that this list isn’t finite, its constantly a work in progress. However, we hope that you will use it for years to come as a guide when preparing for a trip, whether its across the country or around the world. Happy Traveling friends!!

*We realize that this is a mostly United States centered list. We are adding to it all the time and hope to make it more international very soon.
