We traveled to Switzerland with our kids in April 2018. I had been to Switzerland twice before. I knew it was expensive. However, the prices never get easier to accept. Every time I go, I feel shocked by the prices of everything. From croissants to diapers to mailing something home; everything is very expensive. Switzerland with no kids is expensive, Switzerland with kids is super expensive. More mouths to feed with pricey food. In order for us to be able to travel as much as we do, we can't travel in full Lux. We try our hardest to stick to a budget. We made a plan before we arrived in Switzerland and stuck to it for the duration. We complied our tips for traveling Switzerland on a Budget.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....."
"Eventually we made our way over to Rockefeller Plaza to the see the famous Christmas Tree and we walked through Times Square on our way. We ended the evening like good tourists at a local Chinese restaurant where we were able to get the giant circular table in the back. It even had a giant lazy Susan in the middle. I felt like I was in a movie. The food was so delicious, the service was prompt and the company was fantastic.”Read More
