Travelling with Kids

Travelling with kids can be both rewarding and stressful.

Our first few family holidays were riddled with disasters – sickness, ear infections, mozzy bites, cancelled before we even left and so on. Now our children are at an age where we can start to relax a bit more and have more fun.

Still, travelling with little people in tow can be hard work. Keeping them entertained on long journeys and keeping them occupied and safe whilst away is not easy.
