ADVENTURE BEGINS // Plus 7 must haves for a trip with small kids

Before I begin I just want to say that my writing in English is not best, but I am practising and hopefully I will improve as the time goes by.

About two weeks ago I was talking with my husband at home and we were joking about how we should just pack some bags, take our kids and go travel the world. The longer we talked – the more we liked the idea. He is between jobs and I am on my fully payed maternity leave until September, so nothing was holding us. We will probably never have this much free time, so why sit at home (and also, we are probably just a little bit crazy).

Our plan is to travel through the whole Europe in next 6 months with our car – Fiat 500L together with our two small children- David who is 2 years old and Luna who is 3 months old.

Here are seven things that we thought are must haves for such a long trip.

[1] Car seats – Buy a good, comfortable car seats because your kids will spend a lot of time (and naps) in the car. We have a big car seat for David, and a small one for Luna, but we will have to buy new one for her as soon as she starts to sit up, she is almost too big for this one.

[2] Tablet + Tablet holder for car – And fill it with your kids favourite cartoons and music.

[3] Stroller and stand adapter – We figured out that the best option would be to have a twin stroller for baby and toddler, but this also works for now.

[4] Baby Carrier– We plan to visit many castles, lakes, monuments etc, and the easiest way for us is with baby carrier. I bought Ergo Adapt with winter cover  for our trip, but there are so many choices for everyone. Check for Ergo here

[5] Snacks, Books and Toys -You will need them in car and in hotel and they will come perfect for bored toddler. I will write more about food, books and toys in one of my later posts.

[6] Selfie stick or stand – Because you will want pictures with whole family on them.

[7] GPS – We are using CoPilot application on our (android) phone. You can also check Navigon if you have iPhone.

So we began our trip on February 4th in 5 am, and our first location is Hungary. 

ADVENTURA POCINJE // Plus 7 korisnih stvari za putovanje sa malom decom

Na putovanje kroz Evropu sa decom smo se odlucili potpuno spontano. Sedeli smo jedan dan i pricali o tome sta zelimo dalje da radimo u zivotu. Muz je trenutno izmedju poslova, a ja sam na porodiljskom sve do septembra i odjednom nam je sinulo da verovatno nikada u zivotu (bar do penzije) necemo imati ovoliko slobodnog vremena.

Plan je da kolima proputujemo veci deo Evrope u narednih 6 meseci. Putujemo sa dvoje dece- Davidom koji ima 2 godine i Lunom koja ima 3 meseca, nasim autom- Fiat 500L.

Evo liste 7 korisnih stvari za putovanje sa malom decom:

[1] Auto sedista – Za Davida koristimo Romer auto sediste, a Luna jos uvek koristi jaje, medjutim uskoro nam ovde sledi kupovina.

[2] Tablet + drzac za auto – I ubacite omiljene crtace i pesmice.

[3] Kolica + adapter za stajanje – Najbolja opcija za nas bi bila da kupimo blizanicka kolica ali kako trenutno nismo u mogucnosti nasli smo adapter za stajanje za starije dete. Srecom Davidu se bas svidja. Kupili smo ga ovde.

[4] Nosiljka za bebe– S obzirom da planiramo da posetimo mnoge terene koji nisu idealni za voznju kolicima, nosiljka nam je savrseno resenje. Odlucila sam se za Ergo Adapt s obzirom da imam malu bebu i da mi je potrebno nesto sto ce da je isprati u rastu tokom celog putovanja, takodje sam uzela i  zimsku navlaku s obzirom da smo na put krenuli zimi. Medjutim osim ove postoji ogroman izbor nosiljki za bebe. Sajt preko kog sam porucila nosiljku mozete naci ovde.

[5] Grickalice, knjige i igracke -Trebace vam u kolima i u smestaju. U jednom od narednih postova cu da pisem vise o ishrani, igrama, knjigama i odrzavanju kreativnosti tokom puta.

[6] Selfie stick – Zelecete fotografije na kojima je ukljucena cela porodica.

[7] GPS – Koristili smo CoPilot aplikaciju na (android) telefonu. Takodje mozete da pogledate i Navigon aplikaciju ukoliko koristite iPhone.

I tako smo krenuli, 4.2. u 5 ujutru, a nasa prva destinacija bila je Madjarska.
