Michael Gonchar is the co-founder of Darn Good Digs, a guide to the best small hotels, hostels, and B&B’s around the world, all with rooms under (and often way under!) US$150. At darngooddigs.com, budget-minded travelers nominate their all-time favorite places to stay, and our editors carefully research each nomination to determine which hotels meet our highly selective criteria. When Michael read the review I’d posted on the Deuter Kid Comfort II, he contacted me offering to share fun travel-themed photos of their family using this child carrier. It seemed like a fun Photo Friday post. Enjoy!
This is my son Benjamin in our Deuter Kid Comfort II. Typically after fifteen minutes riding on my back, he passes out into a comfortable slumber. Here he is sleeping in Olympic National Park in Washington.
Here is Benjamin before I decided to take a break. He is a heavy load, especially when he is sleeping.
When he was seven months old we spent ten days traveling around Arizona. Here he is napping in front of Sedona’s Castle Rock.
In Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, he decided to get out and climb the dunes himself. He was three years old when we took that trip.
Those were mighty big dunes out there
Now that Benjamin is four years old, he’s too big for his Kid Comfort. – even though I wore it on my back just in case. He hiked up to this village on his own in Spain’s Picos de Europa National Park.
The Deuter Kid Comfort ii is Available on Amazon.com
Deuter Kid Comfort II: A Kid Backpack Review
Great photos Michael!
The little one was really determined to climb those big dunes all on his own! I suppose you need to instil the sense of adventure as early as possible. Great to see.
How fun, those are great photos! We used a Kelty convertible backpack/stroller for our travels and loved it. Ages ago…brings back memories!
