Exploring the world together

Wren was born just after we moved to East Africa and we used this Ergo carrier to take her for hikes and exploring in Burundi where we live, in Kenya, in Zanzibar, in South Africa, and when visiting family in the US. We started carrying her with the Ergo when she was an infant and just took her on there last hike with it in Cape Town at three and a half years old. Wren never really loved being confined in anything, but she does enjoy heading out on the trail with her parents in the backpack…though snacks have become increasingly more important to ensure an enjoyable hike for all 🙂

Probably the most memorable time in the Ergo was her first hike, at just a few months old when a surprise rainstorm hike caught her ill-prepared new parents off guard. We had to hide her under our coats and practically run down the trail to get her back to the warmth of the car. Lesson learned–always plan for the unexpected!
