harvyk, you are an inspiration. We've been too scared to take our little kids on flights longer than 8 hours, but you make it sound manageable even with more kids.
Maybe it is time to take the plunge and take them to Disneyland. We will see how they go in Thailand first. If they pass that test, maybe USA next year
Thanks for a great report
I know you probably havent documented half the stresses and ordeals that inevitably occur - but that the reactions you get from youngsters when they travel and experience the world is priceless.
Questions from mrs reload:
How did you go with laundry?
How much luggage were you burdened with?
How did the kids go with the whole queuing up thing, any techniques to share?
As pulling onto the first of the LA freeways, the Mrs (who doesn’t like driving) turned to me and told me she was happy I was driving. Luckily I have had previous LA freeway driving experience, so I knew what to expect. To put bluntly, lots of lanes, lots of cars going very fast, speed limits not exactly followed, and it is not uncommon for multiple (eg 3 or 4) roads all splitting off at the same time, meaning it’s really important to be in the right lane at the right time. I’ve driven in both SYD and MEL, and I don’t think anything our two biggest cities have even comes close.
