Travelling with twins – the toddler years!

“Shall we go on a Canvas holiday this year?”

“Let’s go to Holland. The boys will love Camping Duinrell.”

It seemed like such a good idea at the time. But now we’re travelling next week, and I haven’t even thought about what we need to pack or what we’ll do when we’re there. And I’m dreading the journey (overnight ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam with two nearly-2 year olds and no travel cots…)

So I took a deep breath, and before full on panic mode set in (which almost involved me cancelling the holiday and retreating to Nanna & Grandpa’s for the week instead), I re-read this blog post I wrote last year in anticipation of our first family Canvas holiday. And remembered how much fun we had. And that the ferry crossing was just fine.

And surely I can’t be the only one who’s travelling abroad with toddlers for the first time. So I thought I’d write myself a pre-holiday checklist in the form of this blog post!
