Hi, we’re in Australia, trying to plan for a family round the world trip for this August, September, October (?may end up extending!) including Europe for about 2 of those months. I’ve found a lot of helpful information on this website so far, but still can’t decide what’s the best method of transport for us to use – Eurail pass, Point to point, Leased car, Rented campervan, or a mixture of all those.
I’ve previously done a Europe trip with the BusAbout company, utilising their hop-on, hop-off arangement, which was excellent!! Unfortunately, they don’t allow children. I haven’t researched it yet, but am also wondering about infants in hostels. Do they allow them or not?
We’re both older than 26 and will be travelling with our then to be 10month old (10months in August). So she’d be free on public transport, but having to carry her also makes it a lot harder with frequent manhandling of bags. Ie, getting on/off trains/busses, and getting to/from places.
Still in the very early stages of figuring out where exactly we want to go yet, so no real itinerary to help with the equation unfortunately! But basicly… we’re thinking…
(In no particular order)
With about a week or so in each country. Does that sound reasonable?
Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
