    Travelling long distance with a 5 and an 80

    I'm thinking of going to Europe with an almost 5 yr old and a 80 yr old near end June. I want to join a tour for 9 days but my dad is complaining he may not survive 9 days, so I'm telling him he has to spend 4-5 hours sleeping in a touring bus, every day.

    P.S. I haven't had a trip for some yrs and this is the first time I'm with a child, and she's never had any trip before, long or short. The air trip may not be a problem since i'm sure she'll fall asleep. Is this a very daring act of mine?

    Should I carry a backpack instead of a briefcase? I've never carried a briefcase before and I've seen people having difficulty with them.

    Also, about the safety in Europe?

    Any suggestions and advice? Thanks.

    5yr & 80yr, eh? very brave of you indeed, considering that you've never travelled with the 5 before. i can't give you much advice cos mine is only 16 mths.

    but one thing i always do before i travel w/ my little one & when i was pregnant, is that i always research the doctors & hospitals in where i'm going, in case of emergency. & always bring some kind of a 1st aid kit w/ you.

    good luck & bon voyage!
