    Travelling with (young) kids.

    by Jerelis Written May 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Are you nervous about taking your baby or child on a plane trip? You aren't alone, most parents are nervous about it. We have moved with Iris and Sam Tarragona Corfu by plane this holiday and drove some distances by car on the island itself and we learned a few things that hopefully will help you.

    General:
    Bring books, old favourite toys and new surprise toys. Do remember that balls are not a good idea as they can end up anywhere! Our best buys were definitely books, especially sticker books are great! They can peel the stickers off, are glossy, have thick pages to turn easy, have bright colours and come in endless subjects. They're a nice break from the other books your child might be tired of, too. Put aside fears of setting poor eating habits, and bring on the snacks! We told Iris: “Welcome to the world of boredom eating."

    Plane:
    If your child is big ask for earplugs as soon as you board the aircraft. Make use of them for take-off then save them for landing as the crew may not have any fresh ones left by then. Also let them eat candies, this helps the kids tremendously if they don't know how to pop their ears.

    Car:
    Toy bars meant for stroller use are a big help in the car, as they often feature toys plus a snack cup, and are big and easy for you to grab from the front seat for refills. During the car trip it’s always a good idea to play a game and sing some songs. It sounds rather easy, but it does work!

    Finally:
    We only have one last statement! Just do it! Don’t be afraid that it might go wrong. We have learned this, because we have been travelling with Iris from the beginning. She was only 6 weeks young when we had our first short vacation and stayed in a hotel. Iris has been used to it rather fast and (maybe because of it) has always been an easy kid to get along with.

    a vintage STEYR-bus to Christkindl

    by globetrott Updated Apr 1, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every year at christmas-time, when plenty of tourists are coming to Steyr in order to enjoy the special x-mas-activities there is a shuttle-service by old vintage STEYR-buses from Marienkirche at Stadtplatz to Christkindl. The bus on my main picture is more than 50 years old and has places for 30 passengers, the other one is a bit younger, maybe 30 years old.
    The buses are mainly going at the weekends, on a regular basis and of a small fee.
    Every time they start their journey you will also hear the old post-horn melody.

    ...& feet

    Your feet are perfect to visit the town, just remember to put in touch with the best guide of the zone, globetrott who also offered me his car to visit the places nearby for which, as I said, a car is needed.

    Steyr is about 30 km south of Linz and if you arrive, like me, from south, from the A1 motorway, get out at the sign B122 road, you'll pass through Sattledt, Kremsmünster, Bad Hall and Sierning before finding yourself in front of the gate of Steyr.

    Getting to Steyr

    by MEdelmann Updated Jun 19, 2003

    I am not shure about the train connections to Steyr. The best way is to ask globetrott or to look at the website of the austrian federal railways, where the schedules can be checked easily. Their website is:
    *www.oebb.at*

    But travelling by train would be also a good idea!

    Getting to Steyr

    by MEdelmann Updated Jun 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When going to Steyr, I take the car in normal cases. The fastest way getting there:

    From Vienna: Take the motorway A1 (Westautobahn), get off at Haag exit and follow the sign to Steyr.

    From Salzburg Take the motorway A1, get off at Sattledt and follow the signs. You will also pass Kremsmünster, there is also a wonderful monastery. Or get off at Enns-Steyr (but it is farer and less beautiful).

    OR you can take the Romantikstrasse (Romantic Road) it is the slowest way, but the most beautiful.....

    ALL WAYS GO TO STEYR !

    To go to Steyr isn't very easy. The nearest airport is Linz. There are sceudule flights to Vienna, Frankfurt, Zurich and Bruxelles.
    You also can go to Steyr by train. There you have to change the train also in Linz or in St. Valentin - that depends.
    Best way is to go to Steyr by car. Leav the highway A1 in Enns! There you can't fail it!!!
