Kids To Go
Messages: 2,564 - Threads: 477
Having kids in travel bring more fun. You need full preparation. prepare some games, pack your kids need in the bag. You don't need to worry too much. Just enjoy your family time.
My husband and I are looking to head to Australia (all the way from Canada!) with three young kids (7,5,4) for one month. We have never been overseas, let alone with kids!, and are open to suggestions about what to do and where to go to make this the trip of a lifetime for all of us. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. We are thinking of approx. 2.5 weeks in Australia, probably Gold Coast area primarily, followed by a week in NZ and the remainder in Fiji. There is sooo much information that it is overwhelming and I don't want to miss out on any gems. Thanks in advance! p.s. we are active/adventure/wildlife folks
We are going for a week to either Prague or Bratislava with 2 kids, 5 and 8 years old. Looking for recommendations/suggested itinerary for one week. Should be a circular route beginning and ending in either Prague or Bratislava (destination will be decided on depending on flights).
Many thanks in advance,
sorry, cutting and pasting from the South Korea branch in case anyone here has relevant info but bypasses the other post
we're travelling to South Korea in either August or October this year, just starting the research and interested in what other visitors' ideal itinerary would be as it's a country I don't know much about.
We'll be in Seoul (staying with friends) for a few days, then would like to see some of South Korea outside of Seoul - debating getting a ferry across to Japan for a bit from Busan - then a final few more days in Seoul before flying home. Looking at max 3 weeks in all.
We're a family of 4 (children will be aged nearly 5 and nearly 2) open to ideas but will obviously be taking things a bit slowly due to the children! Just up for seeing lots and doing lots, meeting people, eating the food etc
Any anecdotal tales?
My wife and two sons (5 and 3) are going to spend 3 weeks in Greece from the middle of June this year.
We plan on dividing the trip as follows:
1) 1 week in Athens - so that we can hit the sights but at a reasonable pace for the boys
- any suggestions as to a centrally located hotel with a pool?
2) Beach Resort in a nice hotel, ideally (a) with a kids club and (b) beside a town with plenty of eating options.
- any suggestions for a hotel? Ideally not too far from Athens (3 to 4 hours travel time max)
3) An alternative location, such as Spetses
- may go for an apartment here, provided it is close to the beach and main town But again, any suggestions wold be great.
Thanks in advance. more »
We are travelling to Italy (Milan->Venice->Florence->Naples->Rome) from NY with our 12 month old.
We are confused over the need to carry a stroller vs front/back carrier (we have a Beco).
I read that a stroller can be pretty useless with cobblestones, steps and some museums not allowing them inside.
On the other hand the thought of carrying baby all day all over seems daunting.
I would appreciate if someone in our situation can share their experience.
Hi, We travelling to England for a holiday in August and my daughter UK passport expires Jan 2014. My daughter is 4 year old would it be best to renew her passport has the photo is of her as a baby. Or can I wait and renew the passport next year. We have no plans travelling again this year and so far no plans next year. Thanks
We're looking for a 2-3 night hut to hut hike in July somewhere in the European alps (Switzerland, France, Austria) We're two families of fit and experienced walkers with a 4 mth old, a 16 mth old and a 5 mth pregnant mum between us! So short-ish days, nothing vertical, and comfortable huts providing linen and meals. Spectacular scenery a must.
Has anyone done something similar?
We have a week off in April and are trying to find something fun and adventurous for our 2 kids, ages 3 and 6. We live in New England and don't want to spend a fortune. Considered the Caribbean and Costa Rica. Costa Rica can't be done for less than $6000.
We want a combo of relaxation, culture and adventure. I would be open to staying in the US but don't have many ideas. We've already done Disney.
Hi just wanted some advice on travelling with young baby on plane in June. Is it better to get seat with bassinet or just have them sitting with my husband and I on window seat. Any other advice would be appreicated. Travelled to India a few times but never with a baby. Thanks
Hi, my wife and I have 3 great little kids- 7, 5 and 3 years old.
Before marriage and kids we traveled a bunch together- Central America, Southeast Asia, India. I'll hold off on the drama but now, we are caught up in the hustle and bustle of North American city-life and challenging careers and have drifted from each other and our oldest is having major issues at school with discipline, which seems generally tied back to anxiety and stress. We have professionals telling us that he needs therapy, extra tutoring, a private school, etc but I wonder if he just needs some time away with his dad. And, his dad needs some time away-- I am now looking at leaving work for 6-12 weeks. I'm still unsure if it's just me and 7yo or the 5 of us.
So, questions for my friends in the the forum:
- does anybody know a place to travel with a 7yo where we could together do a yoga and/or meditation c...
Just got back from a trip to Costa Rica, and after white water rafting, snorkeling, ziplining and nature tours, my 8 year old son says he never wants to go on a European vacation again! DD is rooting for a European trip, with art and history tours. Any thoughts on a great vacation spot with adventure activities for the whole family, some opportunities for culture and history tours, all on a budget?
Thanks a bunch!
Our family will be travelling to the UK for a family reunion in September. We will be stopping over in Singapore and also staying for a week in Italy. I'm looking for recommendations for family accommodation for 5 (2 adults and 3 children aged 2, 4 and 6) in the following locations:
We're not keen on family rooms given the ages of the children and so would prefer 2-3 bedroom room hotels/b+b's or apartments (preferably with some self-catering facilities).
Thanks for your help!
Really grateful to get any information on how windy it usually is in Los Canos de Meca in june.
Looking for some tips.
We're exploring spending 4 weeks in Portland with a 4 month old, and a 2 year old. It's a 3 hour flight from where we are. I think we have most everything figured out, except how to get all the things they need from where we are to where we are going. 2 car seats, a stroller, a cot and a pack and play. How do people normally do this? We can probably drive and solve this problem, but I was hoping to save myself a 26 hour car trip with the kids.
