I want to wish my little man Theo a very Happy Birthday in the online world! (We told him many times on his actual birthday!)
Over the summer, the Michael W Travels family headed off on a month- long trip to six former- Soviet states.
We had to fly home on August 29 to make it back before Theo’s 2nd birthday the following day.
Some of you might wonder why we needed to make it home before Theo turned 2. The reason was so we wouldn’t have to buy him a seat on the flight! (Babies can fly as a lap infant until they turn 2. This can save families a significant amount of money.)
At just two years old, Theo has already visited 22 countries. (This doesn’t include disputed territories like Northern Cyprus, Transnistria and Nagorno- Karabakh.)
Theo is truly becoming a world traveler. Some of his favorite activities are checking out parks and street art, chasing birds and he absolutely loves spotting meow meows (cats) everywhere we go!
When Lucas turned 2, he had visited 12 countries, including Kosovo. I can’t believe that Theo has doubled his mark at this age!

Here are Theo’s flight stats:
Theo has flown on every flight as a lap baby. Since his birthday is over the summer, I will show his lifetime flight info not yearly like how I do for Lucas.
Theo has flown 68 segments for 105,403 miles which took 10 days 4:18.Once again, Happy Birthday to Theo, the best little guy (tied with Lucas) we could’ve ever ask for! Mommy, Daddy and Lucas love you so much! Looking forward to more great experience for many years to come!
