Travel Timehop

Travel Timehop #31: the North Sea, 2014

It’s fair to say we don’t do a lot of air travel. In recent years I’ve been more used to hopping on a plane for work reasons rather than for pleasure. However in this week’s Travel Timehop we did have cause to fly and with Tin Box Tot.

When are we time-hopping to?

It was just over a year ago, when Tin Box Tot was 18-months-old. Looking at this picture it seems a life time ago because she’s grown up so much since then.

Where in the world

At the time I took this in-flight picture we were somewhere over the North Sea, but our destination was Sweden for a wedding. It was Tin Box Tot’s first trip abroad and her first flight.

This photo reminds me of the massive work up towards flying with a toddler for the first time. I read a lot of other family travel blogs for tips, and scoured the shops for lightweight toys and non-messy snacks. Our hand luggage could have been mistaken for a toddler entertainment centre.

Our flight was at about 6.30am so we had stayed at an airport hotel and got up at 4am. Tin Box Tot was a gem right up until she was overwhelmed with tiredness half way through our short air journey. She’s never been good at sleeping while something interesting is happening. She did eventually settle down and fell asleep 10 minutes before landing.
