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.
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, I've read news about sex-slave traffic auctions at the 3 airports in London.
Any suggestions and advice?
