Solo trip with kids


October 31, 2017

I did it. First of all, look at this picture. These are the stuff for me, my 2y son and 7y daughter for three weeks.

I know, I can’t believe it is possible also, but I did it.

I traveled with my two kids alone to Croatia. We traveled by plain because it is faster and easier for us. I couldn’t take many bags with me because I was alone and pushing two buggies and one bag, while being 5 months pregnant, was already too much. So I did it. I packed everything in one bag. Luckily it was summer and we spent most of the time on the beach wearing beach clothes, made everything easier but still… while I was living in Croatia and first beach was only 2 hours drive away, I would bring as much as it could fit in my car and since I’ve gave birth to my first, I’ve always drove minivans. Gabi’s first summer, my car was full and I mean full to the top. She was still baby, so I’ve took  two pushchairs, one for beach and one for city walks, I’ve took feeding chair, chair for playing, mini bike, etc. Talking about craziness.

Next year the same. She had two bicycles in the car, one baby skate, lots of beach equipment and also pushchair in case she gets tired. It was happening every year. When my son was born, it was same, just little less stuff for both of them because we needed to share space.

And this year, when I need to travel thousands kilometers, I am carrying only one bag and I am fine with it. Everyone had everyday outfits for seven days and by the end of the week, I would wash everything and we would repeat our outfits. Kids had one extra for accidents and I was counting that they will spend a lot of time in the beach without wearing anything so that it would be good. It was an experiment and luckily it went really well. Kids enjoyed the sun, the beach and the sea. We had a great summer in Croatia.

P.S. Trip went well but being pregnant and end up in turbulence is not good combination for your stomach.
