    They kicked off their African adventure in Tanzania, where they stayed at The Manor at Ngorongoro.

    Derek said he and Ellen really planned to include Elias in their safari honeymoon in a previous interview.

    "Gusto namin ma-experience ni Elias yung na-experience namin. Pinag-iisipan namin ni Ellen ito, e, na kung nandun na kami, tapos yung mga makikita namin, iwi-wish siyempre na makita ni Elias iyun."


    They also would've loved to bring his teenage son Austin, but unfortunately couldn't because of his studies.

    Tips when traveling with infants and toddlers

    With COVID-19 restrictions starting to loosen up, revenge travel is on sight! If you're planning to travel with your baby or toddler soon, here are some honest-to-goodness tips we picked up from mommy Vikki Dianne Masaquel, a member of our online community Smart Parenting Village.

    1. 'Pack light' is a myth

    Vikki says don't bother attempting to pack light. As a parent, you need to anticipate every possible scenario, so bring as many extra clothes, wipes, bottles as you can!

    2. Keep itinerary open

    Be prepared to take detours since kids' moods are unpredictable. This will also lessen the chances of being disappointed during the trip. 

    3. Choose your accommodation wisely

    When choosing where to stay, consider a place that's not only near to the tourist sites but also near to grocery areas, pharmacies, and other emergency locations.

    "At the end of the day, I realized, it's no longer about me, my itineraries, the foods I want to eat, the places I want to see. It's about her. The new experiences she will gain, the new things she will discover, and the moments we will make as a family," Vikki shares. (Read more of her travel tips here)
