Single Mama & Four Year Old

Jump to last reply

I'm travelling in June and July with my four year old; just the two if us.

We are well-travelled and are currently living abroad; but our travels have usually put us in one place, and this trip we are going from London to France to Italy for over 6 weeks (maybe longer!) -- each stop is a minimum of 3 nights and most are 7-9 days/nights.

My daughter has this small Skip Hop rolling luggage that fits ALL of her clothes, shoes, etc.:

In addition, she has a small kid's backpack for her ipad, headphones, colouring books, etc.

I'm bringing a very lightweight umbrella stroller.

And for myself; I have a 25" suitcase. I can use this or try to size down to an expandable 21".

I'll also be bringing a tote for the plan as a carry-on.

Is the common consensus that less is more?

Thanks,

M
