Travelling with babies and young children

So you have a taste for travel. First it’s backpacking and somehow getting by on the bare essentials, sleeping here and there. Then as you find you have a little more money, perhaps your travel becomes a little more comfortable.

Then along comes junior – now what do you do?

Many people give up their passion for years, but with planning, a lot of planning, having a new born shouldn’t stop you enjoying your adventures, but I must warn you – travelling with a tot is not for the faint hearted!

Last month we picked out a few great sites across the UK, but just over (or under) the water there is the whole expanse of Europe to choose from.

Europe is vast, but camping offers a great way to explore on a sensible budget, giving you a good chance of meeting new people along the way. If you’re travelling with children you can be sure that they’ll be off making friends before you have even considered who your neighbours might be.
