Our road trip to Austria


900 miles to get there, a bit more on the way back due to somebody's poor navigation skills....



Five countries in 12 days...




 
Beautiful scenery and memorable experiences...
 
If you happen to be planning a road trip with a young child, I recommend stocking up on CD stories. We loved the Julia Donaldson CD collection but 10 stories were nowhere near enough to sustain Finn during this very long journey.
 
I also highly recommend Rotraut Susanne Berner's In the town all year long, a big visual book with lots of details and quirky characters. This book really did entertain Finn while sitting in the car.
 
What I DO NOT recommend, is giving your child Lego in the car, especially if they are tired!
 
Do you have any holiday plans? Any advice for families planning long road trips?
