A total of 5 trips with them and never been disappointed. It comes down to the guide and the group. Every guide has been different but always professional and extremely knowledgeable. The groups can be hit and miss, For me it’s a bonus if there are a couple of good people on a trip and so far, it’s been fabulous. My Peru trip was so good, one year on almost to the day and we still keep in touch and even visit each other across the globe.

Comment on Outdoor Education – what can you do as a parent – Part 2 of 2 by deborah https://www.debislinger.com/outdoor-education-what-can-you-do-as-a-parent-part-2-of-2/#comment-67 Mon, 05 Nov 2018 22:00:35 +0000 http://www.debislinger.com/?p=4215#comment-67 Bennie, unfortunately, yes. The most times I would open my first aid kit would be for a bandaid after a child has cut themselves trying to slice an apple, a carrot, a tomato. They aren’t used to using a knife and certainly not cutting a hard vegetable such as a carrot.

And really, kids can’t cut vegetables? Yikes.

If traveling with an infant and carrying prepackaged food, carry them in a large ziplock bag. Easier to grab out when clearing customs. Hard plastic containers help prevent biscuits turning into crumbs.
Convert your infant’s weight to pounds so you can by the right size nappy. Not everywhere is kilograms.
Always take baby Panadol on the plane… you never know when they’ll need it.
If traveling with a pram, purchase a cheap $2 poncho raincoat. Great to throw over a pram and easy to store.
