Practical advice for travel with kids
What advice would Peter and Amber offer to anyone looking to travel with their kids? They tell us it’s all in the organization. “Make sure you select child-friendly hotels and request car seats in advance from rental companies. For peace of mind it is important to store emergency numbers and hospital addresses of the country you are visiting in case of any emergency. Where possible, try to coincide your flight times with your children’s sleep schedule. You will likely get a less fussy baby on board!”
Another challenge they face is jet lag when they travel to different time zones. “We have learnt to allow for a 1-2 day adjustment period for our children. We typically keep our program free and easy for the first 2 days on our trips.”
What to bring and the best stroller to travel with
When it comes to packing they start with their essentials like formula milk, diapers, a medical kit and suitable clothing, all prepared and split in two bags instead of one in the case either gets lost. “Their stroller is a crucial item to bring along. The Bugaboo Donkey Weekender was perfect for exploring Iceland as it is an excellent all-terrain double stroller.” Of course, the best stroller to travel with will depend on your destination, what type of activities you’ll partake in, and how many children you have.
