In our experience, jet lag can really hinder the first days of your new adventure. We have spent days upon days living with no sleep, trying to enjoy ourselves in a new country, but failing miserably. We have also arrived at a destination 8 hours ahead of our normal time zone with no jet lag at all -- a miracle! Through trial and error, we have found several ways to help overcome, minimize or even avoid jet-lag all together with our kids.Read More
Bratislava is the PERFECT day trip for families. The train ride is easy, Slovakia is gorgeous, and Devin Castle is a MUST. You can find so much charm in this city and public transportation is very easy to use.Read More
"Our trip was a whirlwind and there is so much more of Montreal I would love to see. However, if you only have a short stopover, it's totally worth getting out and seeing this beautiful city. You won't be disappointed." TaviaRead More
"Budapest has to be on our most surprisingly wonderful cities we've ever traveled too. As a matter of fact, it's one of the few places I would visit again just to have more time there. It's beautiful, friendly, family oriented and feels especially magical when standing on the banks of the Danube. If you're making a list of must-see places, put Budapest towards the top."
"My husband and I are missionaries in the Baltic States and frequently fly throughout Europe for meetings and conferences and to the United States for support raising and to visit family. With that said, our kids see their bags packed and do not make a fuss about it. They don’t see the need anymore. I have a daughter that is 8 and a son that is 4."
"There are a million options out there for Travel Cribs (AKA baby cots, pack n plays, etc). I am not even about to go into comparing them ALL to each other, but I wanted to share this option since so many of my parent-friends are struggling with their tall toddlers and where they sleep on trips!"
"However, once we had our second baby and we were looking at TWO overnight train rides; one from Prague to Krakow and the other from Krakow to Vienna. I was dreading it. I knew we wouldn’t get ANY sleep. I knew we would be so tired that our days in Poland would be really hard. A few weeks before we left the States, I started looking for an alternative. I found On Day Trip."Read More
"...I was pretty thrilled with myself because I knew I would have time to get seats and get situated and all Jimmy would have to do is get on the train and give us food!! PERFECT!! We board the train. (<-- WORST decision we make all day) My parent’s grab a table and the 4 seats and take Charletta with them. I am battling bicyclists to get our giant double stroller on the train. After they finally get their bikes loaded and I get the stroller situated the door to the train closes and the train starts moving. IT. STARTS. DRIVING. AWAY....."
