Travel and Packing tips
Travel is second nature to those who do it often however, it is a cause of stress to many, especially if it involves going to a country you have never visited before or it is your first time traveling with kids.
I know that travel stress very well: a few years ago I spent a long time not traveling at all or only going back and forth between Dublin and Rome (my two cities) and I quickly lost a lot of my 'travel skills' - suddenly, the packing that took 10 minutes became a 2 days process, going to a new country left me a little shaky and let's not even mention traveling with a baby (or two!).
I didn't like that feeling at all and decided I would learn to travel again and wow, did I do it! Since I made that decision, travel has become a huge part of my life, one of my biggest pleasures and my job, and I have become very good at it, if I say so myself!
I now travel several times a year, both with my kids and without, and I have to down to a fine art - in this part of the site, you will find all my travel tips so that travel can be easier for you too.
Some of the tips are location specific (see: How to plan a trip to Italy with kids or How to drive in Ireland), many are about packing (see how to pack light with kids, or my many location specific packing lists such as for Rome in spring (and other seasons), Ireland, Amsterdam or Iceland in winter) And many are about traveling with kids (tips for flying with young children, best family travel products etc).
You can find all my travel tip articles below and in the next pages or you can use the search bar at the top right corner or this page. Safe travels!
