For the first time in over two years papa and I enjoyed a long weekend away, just the two of us, no kids. We flew to Brussels to go to one of the best rock music festivals in Europe, Rock Werchter.
I felt certain that Vienna would be the perfect ‘new and exciting’ place to go with Georgie. Sans papa. It’s only a three-hour plane ride from Cyprus, a very safe city and extremely child-friendly.
Every single metro station has a lift which makes traveling with a bump and a buggy so much easier and the city centre is jam-packed with the most beautiful parks and playgrounds. The weather was perfect and the food was too.
We’re back from our four-day trip to Vienna! There were moments when it was challenging but thankfully there were even more moments when it absolutely rocked!
I’m pretty sure that had I not been 30 weeks pregnant the challenging part of our trip- such as walking and pushing a five-year old in a buggy for hours- would have been more exciting. In spite of running out of breath and aching legs, I am still glad I took this trip with my boy before his little brother arrives. And thank you to one of my best friends for this great picture and many more I have to cherish x
Georgie and I will be taking a little four-day trip to Vienna this week. He’s super excited about it as am I because we both love travelling so much. And despite having been to Vienna before I can’t wait to go back and take Georgie with me as it’s such a beautiful and child-friendly destination. And so close! Just a three and a half hour airplane ride from Cyprus.
This was the part that made me nervous. A part of our trip I felt I should be fully prepared for. Or else. Five hours in an aeroplane with a four-year old could have been chaotic but luckily all the tips and advice I read up on before our holiday worked like a charm. While kids cannot be expected to sit still or sleep on demand, there are ways to keep them entertained and preoccupied and most importantly, somewhat quiet. Here are my favourite tips for flying with young ones:
