You can’t jump a jet plane like you can a freight train

Because if the jet engines didn’t kill you, you’d probably get arrested.

On Friday, the goode ladywyfe and I are taking the heir to visit his family in Scotland. I always get a little antsy about international travel in the best of times. Now, we’re adding a 3 month old to the mix.

The trip will likely be Montreal-Ottawa-London, Heathrow Express to Paddington, Cab to Euston station, Virgin Rail to Carlisle, Car to Langholm. Our little guy is a pretty good traveler but this is going to be a challenge. It’ll be almost 12 hours of travel plus the bits where we’re waiting around. Plus this needs to be done while dragging two suitcases, a carry-on, a diaper bag, and a stroller. And that’s packing light.

I’m hoping he’ll learn to sleep through anything after this.
