Driving To The Alps With Kids

clock 28th February 2013 | comment0 Comments
Kirsteen, keen skier and mother of two, gives us her top tips on driving to the Alps with kids. This was our third drive to the mountains — and one of many road trips around France — so we thought we had it all sussed but this time there were a few key differences and we learnt a few new tricks for next time.
