    True Essentials for A Successful Long-haul Flight with A Toddler

    We have finally started our long-awaited immigration  journey to New Zealand. On our way there we decided to travel around the South American continent for six months. The first part of our journey involved travelling for more than 24 hours from Johannesburg, South Africa to Santiago, Chile. We flew for 11 hours from Johannesburg to Sao Paulo, Brazil.

My husband Ian’s oldest son and his partner are having a baby, due in April. We’re going to be grandparents! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would join a husband in the title of grandparents at the tender age of 34.
