The worst age to travel with kids

I've titled this post and now I don't want to write it. Which is perhaps a hint that we've found that worst age (it's 18 months).

I'll write that post another day. For now I'll leave you with elephants in Pinnawala as seen from our hotel room. Also, the girls in their new dresses.

Oh man! I so agree with you on age of travel! Still too young to be easily entertained with screens, too much new independence and not enough comprehension of what's happening and why they need to sit still! All that to say, it looks like you're having an amazing time in Sri Lanka!

The girls look beautiful in their new Sri Lankan dresses! So sorry about the difficulty of traveling with an 18-month-old. Maybe you should have farmed him out with a family, or is he still nursing? Hope you're having fun. Janice

18 months is a tough age, vacation or not. One time we traveled with kids with chicken pox to a family event. What fun!

Agreed!!!! 18 months to 2 1/2 is the pits. Meanwhile my 5 and up kids need zero help as long as food keeps coming and screens, books, or play areas are available. These dresses are amazing! I want an elephant dress. One of my favorite things in Kenya was going to the elephant orphanage and touching baby elephants. Seriously it was amazing!

I've been wondering how traveling with little S has been. Even at 22 months, I think Camri would be rough to travel with, especially on a plane. Best of luck to you! And I love the girls in their dresses! So cute

Would you have been able to go hang out with the elephants (like was there road/sidewalk accessibility) if you had wanted to? Because I am just stupid enough to maybe go try to play with elephants. And clearly you're not, because you're alive to post this.

I am really glad that I'm not taking Claire to Botswana, I can tell you that much. And she's even out of that particularly hard phase. Kudos to you guys for doing it, even when it's tough.

Ha! That was Lulah's age on our epic Dublin-Fez-Germany trip. Too old to sit nicely and nurse, too young to play iPad.
