Winter Travel Edition

We spent 4 weeks in Finland over Christmas and this put our Donkey through the ultimate test. In Helsinki it was still going good, there was a little bit of snow on the ground and a couple of minus degrees, no problem.


Then we traveled to my hometown about 3 hours north of Helsinki and suddenly the weather got a lot colder.



When it got to -15 degrees our trusted Donkey came to a halt. Its front wheels froze and we had to look at alternative methods of getting around. When you have two babies to transport you can’t use a baby carrier unless you are two people and to be honest with my already sore back I try to avoid carrying my almost 10kg babies as much as I can. So what to do?


Well we took our Maxi-Cosi car seats and put them on sleighs. The boys were strapped into the car seats and tucked under blankets to keep warm. Little chaps proved that 50% of their blood is Finnish as they seemed to love this winter adventure.

This solved our transportation issue, we were able to continue our daily walks and the boys were happy. They didn’t mind all the attention that they attracted, actually they seemed to revel in it 😉
