Travelling from London to Graz, Austria

We thought it'd be a nightmare to travel all the way from London to Graz with two small babies and enough supplies to last three weeks. It actually worked out really well. My dad drove us to Standstead in our car which he's going to borrow whilst we're away. We checked our numerous bags and the double buggy in about 3 minutes flat, sailed through security with no tasting of milk and were suddenly deposited in Starbucks waiting for our gate to open. Books and magazine were purchased then we boarded the plane. Easy peasy.

The flight took just under two hours. Lilian and Oskar slept through most of it and when they were awake they just enjoyed the ride. Not a single tear or upset noise. Lilian enjoyed the landing as usual. Our bags, buggy and a taxi were all waiting for us past customs. The house we are staying at is 30 minutes from the airport. Nothing to report about Graz itself as it was dark. The house is sponsored by McDonalds. It's got six rooms a few bathrooms and a shared kitchen and lounge. It's really nice and we feel very lucky to be staying here. It's also only 15 minutes walk through some woods to the hospital which is handy as some of the sessions are starting very very early in the morning. Swimming at 7 anyone?

All in all we are relieved to have made it without any upsets. We're anxious about the therapy but so far Austria has welcomed our little family with open arms.
