Photo Fave: Paris CDG, the way we roll…

by Shelly Rivoli
Family and suitcases at Paris CDG

At the end of the longest line I’d ever seen for check-in… can you tell who’s been enjoying my cafe’ creme?

Sure, some travel bloggers will dazzle you with gorgeous photos of exotic destinations. And I like to do that, too. But at Travels with Baby Tips you also get the other side of the coin! 😉 Here’s what family travel really looks like, packing 5 winter coats and hats and scarves for an overseas flight, along with two students’ worth of independent study materials, two laptops, trusty travel stroller, believe-it-or-not our toddler travel bed is even packed in one suitcase, and all of us made it to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport on time to wait in the longest line I’d ever seen for check-in at an airport.

Not to worry, our fight was delayed two hours–and when the beautiful people representing our airline saw the three musketeers, they let us jump the queue. I love visiting France with little kids!

CARES harnessGIVEAWAY IN PROGRESS! Have you entered to win the CARES flight harness I’ll be giving away this Friday (go to the post here for details)? I’ve enjoyed reading your comments so much and really appreciate the feedback and shares – more sharing, please! 😉

hi shelly, i couldnt agree more with you, even to keep my little one inside her winter suit inside of the ergo is a bit of a pain..
a question: the stroller is a volo or a globetrotter (possible to recline) model? i really love my volo but the fabric starts to be damaged by the use and to replace it it will costs me half of how much i paid for the stroller…im considering if not to buy a new one so we have two for both girls and if to keep the same model or go for the globetrotter

That there is the Maclaren Triumph. I got it before the Globetrotter came out, but I would still choose the Triumph for its better wheels and deeper recline, and with the cost difference between models and only a half pound more for the Triumph’s weight, I think it’s well worth it. I think you’d probably be very happy to make the upgrade – the deep / adjustable recline is very helpful during travel and when you need them to nap on the go – or even lean back out of the sun. 😉 If you’re considering other options though, you might want to look at all of my recommendations here http://www.travelswithbaby.com/gear/strollers_single.htm I’m in the process of reviewing the new stroller line-up so more details will be coming!
