    Eeek if my husband gets a bonus this year I think we'll go early next with the two kids in April/May If not we'll ttc for #3 from January and go a later date.

    So how long for? I'm thinking a minimum 3 weeks

    While 2 Children is obviously easier than 3, I've found traveling with a newborn easy, prams are often a pia but you always find a way. Although it will be cheaper with only 2. But holding any age child for 24hr a flight is no fun.

    I'd say if you can do more than 3wks it's definitely worth it. If your able to aim for May, April can still be very cold/rainy.

    If your getting that opportunity to go next year I would take it. Never know what can happen in the future which might delay you going away.
    I recommend a trunki or something similar for tge 2 yr old ours has been a lifesaver to get through the airport with littlies and you can use it as hand luggage.
    Definitely 3 weeks min.

    Oh nice. Switzerland costs SO much though.

    I think next time we go I will do Austria.

    I did not go to France (no interest to go) but we have done Germany twice. Once with kiddo and once without.

    Without kiddo we did mostly Munich/Bamberg in Germany.

    With kiddo mainly Berlin/Koln.

    For us we found train to be the best option between countries as they were all neighbouring (1st trip was Germany/Czech Republic/Poland/Ireland and 2nd was Germany/Belgium/Poland) and you could prepurchase x amount of trips between x amounts of countries.

    Either halve the amount of stuff you want to do or double your time.

    For just over 3 weeks we did 5 towns/cities. But there was def not enough time to look at a lot of stuff in big cities like Berlin.

    I love France so much. When we went with the boys we had a week in a Paris apartment (2 bedroom kitchen etc) just off Boulevard Richard Lenoir ( near Marais). We needed at least 3 days to sort sleeping out. We were wide awake at 4am. walked everyday-natural museum was brilliant for kids, montemarte, sacre couer, eiffel tower, each afternoon it seemed all the kids in paris played in the parks and playgrounds, so we joined in. Got all our food at markets.
