Similar to the first book I reviewed, this documents the travels of an American family. But of course their story and their experiences were entirely different…

5 Tips for a Road Trip with a Toddler

Road Trip with a Toddler

We recently had a long road trip with our toddler. All in the trip would take about 14 hours. In our pre-baby days we would have just driven it in one stretch. But with a toddler we opted for an overnight stay. And two days driving of around 7 hours. Along the way we picked up 5 tips for a road trip with a toddler.

A Toddler’s Visit to Shepreth Wildlife Park

A toddler’s visit to Shepreth Wildlife Park would be straightforward. But our demands were a little more complex. It is an increasing challenge to find venues for multi-generational days out. Especially as the toddler increasingly just wants to run about. Shepreth Wildlife Park appeared to tick lots of the boxes.

Glamping in Belgium with a Toddler

We decided to try glamping in Belgium with a toddler. It wasn’t called ‘glamping’ when we booked. But on reflection it’s probably what it would be marketed as in the UK.

Road Trip with a Toddler (Best Laid Plans…)

I thought it would be a great idea to turn our drive back to the UK from Austria into a road trip. I had all sorts of plans. First we would be organised and be ready to leave on time. We would head off early and stop for breakfast by the scenic Lake Bodensee (Constance in English). Then drive for 3 hours or so to our lunch stop at Wildpark Pforzheim. We would then have time for an afternoon break at one of the fab looking playgrounds in Luxembourg. Before stopping for the night on a farm near Arlon in Belgium. On the second day, we would then have a simple, short drive to the coast to catch the ferry. However, a road trip with a toddler does not always go to plan. Here is the reality of day one…
