Traveling Brazil and Argentina in pregnancy with a two year old – preparation, buying tickets, research After four winters spent in South East Asia (which we love and feel like home) we decided to make a change – to try something new. For start we didn’t have any particular destination, we decided to search for the cheap flights and see what are the options. First thing we wanted was South Africa – flight straight from Belgrade for 380eur but we decided to skip because Uk transit visa and South African which we would have to get in Bulgaria. One week after we fount tickets Rome – Sao Paula – Rome for 315 EUR per person. Decision was instant. We will go to Sao Paulo and we will make itinerary afterwards. We often find cheap tickets for far destination but the departure point is not Belgrade but somewhere from Central Europe and the problem is that trip to that place, lets say Zurich, can often be more expensive than flight from lets say Zurich to Mexico. This time we made a cheap connection Timisoara Rome for 27 Eur round trip via WizzAir. We like when we have a connecting flight in […]
Singapore Singapore is one large, exciting, tidy and interesting city… but also very expensive. We find it an excellent destination to travel with kids, not just because of superb metro system but also because the whole infrastructure is adapted to the people with disability, which means also for us – people with strollers. We can even say its the best we ever saw anywhere in the world. It is possible to move from point A to point B without using your arm muscles or your back to move the stroller. Just bare in mind that when you are entering a public bus you have to fold it as it is mandatory. The city itself has a lot of content for the children, the zoo and the aquarium are one of the best of their kind in the world. Also there is fun island of Sentosa. We decided to visit Singapore because of its proximity to Thailand and also because its on the top of the lists of best cities in the world. It was definitely worth visiting when we were so close. We bought one way tickets directly from airasia website. Flight was from Phuket and it lasted around an […]
The next trip is due – Thailand and its time to write couple of lines about it. We decided to go to Thailand while Relya was 6 months old since we have already been there in 2014. We wanted to repeat it as already know it, we knew all the location (except several new ones) and we were very confident. For us Thailand left an impression of a very safe and easy country to travel to. Its easy to go from one place to another, find food, accommodation, smiles, beauty, attractions… There wasn’t any general problem in sight, well, only a long flight. We bought plane tickets (BGD – BKK – BGD via Abu Dhabi) three months before for dates 5. february – 10. march – 34 days in total. Price for all three of us was 982e for buying directly at Etihad website. Ticket for infants (up to 2 years old) are not exactly free, price depends from company to company. We payed 62 eur, while our tickets for the adults costed 460e. It was possible to pay less – 420eur but for a longer waiting time between the flights which we didn’t wanted. For us it was important […]
Soon after our baby Relja was born, when we had our assurances that he is healthy, strong and developing well, we decided to take our first trip with him once he turns three months and to make it somewhere “local” meaning in South Europe. Our decision felt on Cyprus and for the end of October. We picked that location for two reasons: 1) it has the longest season in the Med 2) We found extremely low prices on Wizzair website. End of October was the choice because what we researched online is that there are no rules regarding when is the baby “too small” for the plane. Some companies don’t have regulations some require it to be at least two weeks old. But there is another problem: newborns have very fragile immunity and in airplanes the a/c has the same air circulating from all parts of the plane into single system meaning that everyone is breathing what other people exhale, therefore a lot of babies get various sorts of infections form the flight itself. We know of a baby that was on a plane when she was three weeks old and she got a conjunctivitis. Advise is that baby should […]
