Flying away on Holiday

After an exceptionally amazing holiday away in the most beautiful house, tranquil scenery and hospitable hosts, called friends ~ one can only be thankful for such a opportunity to relax & catch up x very sad to say goodbye and only see R,D &  little baby C *when he probably will be walking:( *
But hopefully these visits will be sooner than later 

I was very anxious about our flights, what to pack and about our busy boy, 
But it went far far better than expected and one things for sure kiddies are way more adaptable than we think.Trying to remember how it was flying just the TWO of us. Or at one stage me and a bump. And at another stage us and a sitting 6 month and then at our more recent memory a crawling 11 month. All these times went rather well. Worry gets you nowhere;) 

This trip was made super easy on foot with the amazing practical easy fun Trunki .   It was honestly the best thing for Matthew  for getting around the airport and knowing where he was all of the time. 
Other than the airline over charging us for overweight baggage which in a nut shell should of been split into 3 bags instead of two. We eventually got over the shock.  
But in the tiny plane with a few googly eye looking passengers who have obviously never been in the presence of little ones.We were totally over packed for the plane two bags were far too much. 
The iPad :the pack of sticky window stickers & one lollipop were just fine. 
I honestly think they need a business plane. Small and sweet and 
a family plane. Big and wide  
Thank you TrunkiSa for honestly making our trip smooth fun practical 
Blessed with a beautiful holiday ,with exceptionally friendly& helpful  Durbanites all round, wish I could of taken the warm sea, the gorgeous home, the stunning friends, the cute baby, and awesome doggies with us & hubby would add : the cheaper golf. The yummiest smoothie out at Gloria Jeans 
But home to our beautiful City, our blessed home & special friends&family X hopefully can carry on with the loads of water I drank daily thanx to the humidity x

convenient mixing and feeding any time.
Pack a greater variety of medicine than you think you would need. 
Put loads more sunblock.
Pack far less bags and far less clothes and farm less extras. There are shops everywhere.
