Volar con un bebé: las tarifas

Siempre habíamos oído que los bebés viajaban gratis, que al llevarlo tú encima sin ocupar asiento el peque no pagaba nada por viajar. ¡Nada más lejos de la realidad!

Hay dos tarifas diferentes para niños:

  • Infant: de 0 a 2 años sin ocupar asiento (viajando sobre el adulto)
    1. El bebé no tiene derecho a asiento, viaja sobre tus piernas
    2. Paga el 10% de la tarifa del adulto
    3. A ese 10% hay que sumar las tasas
    4. En la mayoría de compañías tiene derecho a la misma franquicia de equipaje que el adulto más su cochecito
  • Child: de 2 a 12 años (y también de 0 a 2 si ocupan un asiento)
    1. El niño/bebé tiene su propio asiento
    2. Paga el 50% de la tarifa del adulto
    3. A ese 50% hay que sumarle las tasas
    4. Si tiene de 0 a 2 años y coges esta tarifa puedes meterlo con una silla de coche homologada (por ejemplo el maxicosi)
    5. En la mayoría de las compañías tiene derecho a la misma franquicia de equipaje que el adulto más su cochecito

Con lo que a la hora de organizar vuestros viajes tened en cuenta que el precio de los vuelos no seguirá siendo al que estáis acostumbrados sino que subirá desde el primer viaje con vuestro bebé.

Una cosa curiosa que nos ha gustado con Iberia es que existe la Iberia Plus Kids desde los dos años con la que V podrá empezar a acumular sus propios puntos desde muy pequeña! Esto es buenísimo si vuelas tanto como nosotros porque con sus puntos tendremos más descuentos y si va subiendo de nivel también más privilegios (como tenemos ahora con la Iberia Plus Oro de Ana).

Volar con bebé: consejos prácticos

Si vas a volar con tu bebé por primera vez hoy queremos compartir algunos consejos prácticos que suelen dar también las mismas compañías aéreas:
  • No se recomienda viajar con bebés de menos de 7 días de edad.
  • Evitar viajar si el bebé está muy resfriado o con problemas de oído (como otitis) ya que le molestará bastante el cambio de presión y lo pasará mal (y tu más).
  • Llevar biberones y sus alimentos habituales en cantidad suficiente para el viaje (nosotros siempre llevamos uno o dos de más por si hay retrasos).
  • No olvidéis llevar lo necesario para cambiarlo (pañales, algodón, etc.). Para todo esto es muy útil tener una buena mochila de bebé como esta.
  • Dar de beber frecuentemente al bebé durante el vuelo. Nosotros los primeros meses solucionábamos esto con el pecho, ahora para vuelos cortos no nos preocupamos solo le damos el bibe si le toca a esa hora.
  • Antes del viaje, no olvidéis verificar que el niño tiene todos los documentos exigidos por los servicios de policía, aduana e inmigración del país de destino.
  • Si viajais con un cochecito, es mejor identificarlo con una etiqueta con vuestros datos (nombre, dirección, número de teléfono y dirección de correo electrónico).
  • Elegir prendas de vestir cómodas y calientes (jerseys y calcetines).
  • Prever una tetina, un biberón, un chupete (o una galleta, chicle para los más mayores), para las fases de despegue y aterrizaje. Así evitará molestias en los oídos.

#2ontheroad19M a travel style wedding

Yes, we got married a couple of months ago, and obviously the theme couldn’t has been other than TRAVELS. There were so many things, so many details and it was the funniest day of our lives, a big party with best friends, as we’ve always dreamed! We’ll try to resume it in some points:

1.The invitation: boarding pass + website + newsletter + whatsapp

We made a website with zankyou to put in there all the information about the event, to help our guests to find the best tickets and accommodation and to give them some tips about Madrid and surroundings. We add a section about fashion tips too! And obviously, there was a section about our BIG TRAVELS around the World, telling everybody our idea of honeymoon.

wedding web 2ontheroad

To share this page we started sending a newsletter to some of the youngest guests 4-5 months before the wedding. Later, we also share the link with some whatsapp to other people who doesn’t read the email so often.

And a couple of months before the DAY we sent (or give by hand) the invitation which was a boarding pass with QR codes that linked to the website too. To design this boarding pass we had the help of Save the Date Project. They’ve been amazing with us during the whole process and they’ve understood our idea from the very beginning making so easy to work with them.

2.The idea, catering and deco

Finding a different place, a different catering, a different idea… making a different wedding is not easy. The easiest way is to take the “normal” things that everybody want and just pay for it and let it go. But the problem was that we don’t like conventional weddings. We like to attend to them when we see our friends happy with this style, but we didn’t like it for us, it wasn’t our style, it wasn’t us. So the most difficult thing at all was to find different providers to make it happen.

La Mojigata was the key for that, the beginning and the perfect unconventional wedding. Without her, her team, and all the people and other providers involved thanks to her, it would has been impossible to do it. On her blog you can see this post about our day. If you can’t read in Spanish you can just see the photos, they are great!

We told Natalia (La Mojigata) our idea about travels, we told her our story and we started to dream, go crazy, look for impossible things, create the magic… The result was the perfect party, the most “Ana & Fulvio” party ever.

 

3.The location

If finding the catering and the rest of providers was difficult, finding the location at Madrid was the worst part. La Mojigata has a perfect industrial place in Carabanchel, but we were out of capacity as we had 150 guests and the place can only hold (legaly) 100 people. We needed a place with these chatecteristics:

  • For 150 people or more
  • In the center of Madrid (because everybody was coming to Madrid from abroad or from different cities in Spain and we wanted to make it easy for all of them)
  • With the alternative style and mood that we were looking for.

So, after looking for it desperately during a couple of months, we found the perfect place: Espacio Muele 36

 

4.The Bride look

As you may imagine, if everything was unconventional, the look of the bride couldn’t be classic.

5.The Party!

The entrance: coffe, music, greatings and the customs

 

The ceremony: in front of the mapa mundi with our best frieds as testimonies and more fantastic friends making the talks and translations.

Living as a Newyorker

To spend a week in New York we decided to take an apartment on airbnb at Williansburg. It was the best idea ever! Not only because the apartment was incredibly awesome, but because we got to live in New York as newyorkers, enjoying the city walking a lot, taking the underground, eating bagels for breakfast and go shopping to the best thrift shops.

 

Warn, the owner, wasn’t at the country so he left the maintenance of the apartment to a company in the city, but everything was perfect. We had help when we needed it and when we understood all the tech things inside the house our stay was really confortable.

Where to eat cheap in Rome, Italy

Little things to consider: Italy is not cheap, and Rome could be even more expensive, so to eat cheap at Rome is not as easy as in Spain.

A cheap lunch in Rome will be around 12 and 17 euros pax and the cheapest dinner won’t be under 15-20 euros. This is the touristic Italy! Having this clear, we’ll give you some names of places where we used to go when we lived in Rome. Bars and restaurants where we would take you if we were there traveling all together!

NEAR THE COLOSSEUM:

Trattoria “Luzzi” Via di San Giovanni in Laterano, 88 tel: 06.7096332

It’s a classic trattoria romana where you can eat the most typical meals of the capital as “coda alla vacinara” (is a modern Roman oxtail stew, made from oxtail and various vegetables). We recommend you to take an unique plate of pasta and if you are really hungry you can even take and antipasto to share before.

Average prize: 12euros pax

NEAR THE VATICANO:

“Cacio e Pepe” Via Giuseppe Avezzana, 11 tel. 06 3217268

How to arrive:

Take the underground to Lepanto station and walk from there.

Here you will find the best “Carbonara” pasta of Rome, Fulvio says that is the best of the World! You can sit at the street on these tiny tables with square pattern tablecloths full of people who works near there, is not a super truistic place. We recommend you to take the Carbonara and white wine “de la casa”. Take the coffee in a different place.

Average prize: 12euros pax

AT TRASTEVERE:

To spend a night at Trastevere is always a good idea, but you need to prepare yourself for crowded streets and restaurants.

“Pizzería Carlomenta” Via della Lungaretta, 101 tel.06 580 3733

You will probably find a queue at the door because is good end with good prices. So patience, you will have a table in 15 minutes more or less.

 

700px-Trastevere_-_piazza_di_s_Maria_1060258-9

Osteria “Miraggio” Via della Lungara 16 tel. 06 6875319 (mapa 3.B)

Tipical Trastevere’s food, pasta, pizza and a lot of antipastos. It is a little bit farer from the most crowded streets but near enough to arrive by foot.

 

AT SAN LORENZO (our suburb)

“La Fraschetta” Via degli Equi 44 (mapa 4.A)

Here you’ll find really good sandwiches stuffed with tasty ingredients, choosing yourself what you want inside.

Average prize: 4-5 euros

pizzeria-formula-1

“Formula 1” Via degli Equi, 11 (mapa 4.B)

Super delicious pizzas and one of the best fried antipasto (fritti).

Average prize: 18 euros pax

 

 

APERITIVI:

The “aperitivo” in Italia is a cultural thing. It use to be between 7pm and 9pm and is like an after work with more food than drinks. In the north, as Milan, is more tipical and you can find it almost in every bar, but in Rome is not so usual. There are two places with a good aperitivo that we like cause you can have dinner paying 10 euros for each drink and eating as much as you want. So, taking a couple of drinks and eating a lot you’ll pay just 20 euros.

Important: AS the aperitivo is from 19:30 to 21:30 in theses places as soon you go as much you’ll eat, if you arrive late the aperitivo will be finished and the normal dinner (ordering food and paying it separately) will start.

“Monmart” Viale 21 Aprile

How to arrive: take the underground to Piazza Bologna station and walk from there.

Chic and cool place with wood oven. Pizzas are great and included in the aperitivo.

“El Oasi della Birra” Piazza Testaccio, 38

Como llegar: Take the underground or bus to Piramide station.

This is at one of the suburbs with more young ambient in Rome, you’ll find also pubs and discos there. In this aperitivo you will take a lot of good things to it and a huge menu of beers!

Paris, the city of love and fun!

On our first year together we start traveling around Europe without knowing how far we’ll go… meaning both distance and relationship.

One of our first travels out of Italy and Spain was Paris. It was winter, so really really cold, and we were staying at a friend’s house in the isle of Sant Louis, behind Notre Dame.  I (Ana) have been in Paris a couple of times before, but for Fulvio it was the first time. I love first times! And I love to be with someone on his first time in a city because I feel that I’m discovering it again.

Today, we are remembering some of the best moments lived during this lovely (and freezing) days in Paris, sharing these photos with all of you.

The quality of the photos is not the best but you can get the idea of how much fun we had back there!

Cervaro, and the ‘deepest’ Italy

Cervaro is a little town in the Province of Frosinone in the Italian region Lazio. It is located in the Liri valley, about 130 kilometres (81 mi) southeast of Rome and about 50 kilometres (31 mi) southeast of Frosinone.

But Cervaro is also Fulvio’s family home, in the middle of Italy, between Rome and Naples. And we love to come here when is possible to visit our Italian family and friends, eat a lot and so good and have a relaxing time surrounded by nature.

The last weekend we made a surprise visit to our Italian family at Cervaro, and it was as great as you can see on the following photos!

During our journey we made a little exploration trip around the “Ciocciaria” area, discovering beautifull places as the “Abbey of Casamari” or the fall in the center of “Isola del Liri”. We always say that “Ciocciaria” is a Tuscany without marketing, or a poorer Tuscany. As beautiful as Tuscany but cheapest and unknown.

The funnest cities to travel

The latest UNWTO report has confirmed the continued growth of international tourism, with the number of international tourists reaching 781 million between the months of January and August – 36 million more than the same period in 2013.

The influence of social media and dropping travel costs are encouraging people to travel by trends, and local economies are adapting to these changing behaviours by expanding their offerings to make them suitable for each and every type of visitor.

GetYourGuide and GoEuro have compiled data based on 11 factors to define what exactly makes a city fun for travellers of different age groups and interests. Of a total 1,830 cities, here’s the ranking of the world’s 25 most fun cities for travel.

Do you agree?? Which is the city where you have had more fun during your travels?
