Stroller in Europe

Jump to last reply

We just got back from a two week trip through Spain with our little girls (ages 3 and 1) and were contemplating what to do regarding a stroller and baby carrier... We decided to take our three-wheeled jogging stroller and we're so glad we did! Feel sorry for all of those children over there getting their teeth rattled out of their heads on those cobbled streets. Our stroller worked flawlessly over the cobbles and up and down escalators, onto subway cars... Couldn't figure out why we didn't see more strollers like ours. Took the wheels off and through it in the overhead on the high speed train, fit in the rental car, fit on most sidewalks and the ones it didn't, well even a skateboard would have a hard time fitting on parts of the sidewalks as they can taper down to nothing. Then you do what every other walked is doing and simply share the narrow road with the cars. The Euros do drive faster down those narrow roads than North Americans would so be careful with any little ones that are walking and hold them or their hands. But we had no problems at all. Took our baby trekker carrier for the little one on a longer walk and it worked great. If you have two little munchkins I wouldn't suggest a double stroller as that would be too hard to navigate over there. But our jogger went into stores and restaurants just fine.
