Last Monday at approximately 4:15 PM Tae, Eli, and I boarding a flight to Germany. Said flight happens to be about 11 hours and it was not our final destination. Needless to say, it was a long day! I know I am not the first momma to fly with her kids and most certainly not the first to do it alone, but let me tell you, it is quite a feat. With a husband or without, for 2 hours or for 10 these moms/parents need awards. Or some form of compensation for services rendered. How about I just leave my paypal address at the bottom of this post for those of you who feel really sorry for me. :)
But since most of you lucky people don't have to have 20 hour travel days with two kids and no help, I thought I would put together a little post of our experience. I tried to video as we went along to give you a little idea of our journey. Tae is a trooper. He has been flying internationally since he was 5 months old and it is old hat to him. Eli has also been flying internationally since he was 5 months old. He, unlike his brother, has a little more of a difficult of a time. He may or may not have rolled around on the floor at the airport whining and yelling no... at no one.
So there is snippets of our journey. Sorry the quality is not that great, they were all taken with my iPhone. I just wanted to capture our travels for something fun to share with you all and also something to have for our family.
I think I am going to follow this post up with travel tips. One with kids and one without. Actually the post about traveling without kids would be pretty short. Take three Tylenol PMs and wake up at your destination. Not that I have ever done that before...
Any travel questions for me? Anything you would like to see answered or suggestions given? I would love to hear them!!
