I have mainly travelled by plane on journeys abroad apart
from one ferry trip when I was 10. I
still remember it quite fondly, we had room to stretch out and walk about, I
enjoyed a full cooked breakfast and watching the waves. Whilst on a plane you are confined to your
seat, twiddling your thumbs, a little bored.
Now I have the boys its not like I can read a book to myself
indulgently, I need to think about their entertainment needs – which means
packing more bits to keep them occupied!
You would think that would not be a problem but given the baggage
restraints adding more to your load is the last thing you need!!! It’s hard enough getting everyone’s clothes
within the luggage allocations rather than dedicating a big chunk of your
luggage for activity books, colours and puzzles.
With a cinema, shops and arcades the journey will pass by quickly and easily with plenty for them to see and do. The more I read this infographic the more tempted I am.

Ferry travel seems an easier option; I might just investigate it for
next year’s annual holiday.
