    Trunki Review – The Ultimate Ride on Suitcase for Toddlers and Kids

    If you have been to an airport in the last 10 years you are bound to have seen plenty of kids racing along on their Trunki. From the first time I saw a Trunki, I always thought that they looked amazing and knew that I would have loved to have had one when I was young. We have now bought one for each of our daughters and have used them on several trips abroad. In this Trunki review, we will tell you all about the features of the Trunki ride on suitcase for kids and share our experiences of using them.   Trunki Review Size: 18.1 x 8.2 x 12.2…

    Mifold Review 2019 – The Booster Seat You Can Take Anywhere

    The Mifold travel booster seat is a child car booster seat like no other. Forget the big bulky booster seats that you are familiar with, this one is really really small. When we first saw a picture of the Mifold travel booster seat it showed a young kid holding a traditional booster seat and then again with the Mifold grab and go booster. We were stunned by just how small it is and thought it looked like the perfect solution for travelling with young children. In fact, it is perfect for many other things as well, like carpooling, taxis, car sharing, car rentals, and for fitting 3 kids on the…

    Koh Ngai Thailand – Your Complete Guide to an Island Paradise

    Surrounded by coral reefs and home to swooping hornbills and flying lizards, Koh Ngai is a perfect jungle-clad island in the Andaman Sea and a slice of paradise in Thailand. It is hard to know where to begin describing this island. We love it here! We have visited three times and have spent over a month on this tiny island where essentially there is nothing. Nothing except gloriously warm turquoise seas, fine weather, good value hotels, great snorkelling and perfect views across to karst islands. In this guide to Koh Ngai we will give you the full lowdown on everything the island has to offer, how to get there, where…

    Tips for Renting a Car in Italy

    Before we talk about tips for renting a car in Italy, it is worth mentioning that before we had children we were firmly in the ‘backpacker who uses public transport camp’. It rarely crossed our minds to rent a car and we never did until our second trip to Italy with our baby, when we made a last minute decision to get a car. It has to be said having a car makes travelling with children a LOT easier (especially with babies and toddlers) and it has become our preferred option when travelling in Europe. It gives you greater freedom to travel at the time you choose and that best…

    What To Do if Your Child Gets Chickenpox on Holiday

    One of the main things that we always hope for when travelling with babies and toddlers is that they stay safe and healthy the whole time. The thought that they might get sick is probably our biggest worry, especially on long trips to South East Asia.   But, sometimes the unexpected happens when you are away. On a trip to Lanzarote with our eldest daughter, she came down with chickenpox. Fortunately, she was pretty lucky and only suffered from relatively mild chickenpox with just a few spots. Whilst she was maybe not quite her usual self, she was still very bubbly and able to enjoy her holiday. We think that…
