  • Flying with Children doesn’t have to be a pain

    Date: 2011.03.11 | Category: France, Holiday Parks, holidays, Italy, Places to go, Self catering, Spain, Villas | Response: 0

    Before you take off, let the kids burn off some energy. Get them to walk as opposed to carrying them around the airport. Show them the planes, and when you board, take them to see the cockpit and meet the pilot if you can. It also doesn’t hurt to allow them to stay up a little past their bedtime the night before; this way they may actually nap on the plane. If you’re travelling with a baby in a push chair, keep it until the last possible moment. Then if your flight is delayed, your child will have a place to sleep.
    While in flight, make sure children are comfortable and occupied. Prepare them for the experience by describing what they can expect to feel (turbulence, ear-popping, etc.) and let them know that it is normal. Many airlines offer something special for the kids, full of games, puzzles, activities and short stories to occupy their in-flight time. If the flight attendant doesn’t volunteer anything, ask. Many wise parents opt to bring their own.

    If your child is anxious about flying, there is a great book called “How to Fly For Kids” which explains what your child can expect to experience, like the “G” force and turbulence, in a very UN-scary way. It is a good idea to carry some boiled sweets with you to suck during takeoff, landing and turbulence; apart from the swallowing helping with the ear popping, it can help to take their mind off the situation.

    There are some fantastic places to stay that will not cost the earth, and they don’t have to be the typical ‘package holiday’ in a hotel. Ever thought of staying in a mobile home or villa in Italy?

    Have a look at Pra Delle Torri, Caorle, Adriatic Coast.

  • The more things change, the more kids stay the same.

    Date: 2011.03.09 | Category: France, Holiday Parks, holidays, Italy, Latest News, Places to go, Self catering, Spain, Villas | Response: 0

    The more things change, the more kids stay the same. The family Chevy turned into the family station wagon, turned into the family minivan, which is now the family SUV. Even with the advent of in-seat TV’s, mp3 players and Nintendo DS — surprise — kids still can’t get along in the backseat! Here are a few quick tips for travelling with children.

    Before you even leave the house, it’s a good idea to prepare your kids for the trip. If they are old enough to read, give them books about the area you are travelling to and do some research online. If not, read to them and show them pictures of the places they will see. If you are travelling to a foreign country, introduce them to the food they will taste at home before you go to help ease the culture shock upon your arrival.

    Finding Family-Friendly Lodging
    In most cases, the more space the better. Rather than booking a handful of rooms, or worse, trying to cram everyone into two standard double beds, you might want to try staying in a mobile home or a villa in the country of your choice.
