So what else was I meant to do with my time on maternity leave?! As a lot of you may know, my dad was planning a trip of a life time to celebrate his recovery and second chance at life following his life saving operation which unfortunately he didn't live to have. We've had to put off my dads trip for a few years as we've had some pretty big (expensive) things come up and then we decided to start a family. So, we plan to go Oct 2016 and our baby will be around 20 months. I've got a rough idea of the itinerary my dad had in mind and thanks to you guys helping me when I tried to arrange it before, have a list of things he wanted to include in the trip. I'm wondering how different a trip it is from 5 adults which we normally have, to 4 adults and one toddler? Obviously my dad didn't know about the baby and wasn't including him/her in the trip planning. Any advice or wisdom from anyone whose taken young children for the first time?
