In 5 days time we are going on a little holiday to a quaint 5* cottage in the Isle of Man.
We have been so busy this last year with the business that we haven't set time aside to go away yet. So we decided to do one trip close (ish) to home and then another holiday at the end of the summer somewhere a bit further away.
So this will be the first time we have travelled far with BB. It will be a 4 hour car drive and then a 3 hour ferry crossing. I like to be organised and so have been writing lists of things we need to take from bottles and food to the travel cot and toys. She has only just turned 1 so a lot of the normal holiday advice like playing i-spy etc won't do the trick.
So far I have come up with the following for the journey to keep her amused:
-Her favourite snacks on hand (raisins and rice crackers)
-A little travel bag with her favourite toys from home in, a couple new toys as a surprise & a couple books
-Music for the car
What tips and tricks and advice do you have for travelling with a toddler/1 year old?
