My partner and I took our children (Aza, aged 8 and Chika, aged 5) to Jogjakarta from Bandung, by train, on July 12. The trip took almost eight hours.
We made some preparations. Snacks? Check! Lunchboxes? Check! Magazines? Check! Blankets? Check! Odds and ends. Extra clothes and all.
The most important thing if you want to bring your kids along with you is: patience. Perseverance, too. Keep amusing them by stories about the surroundings, about places they are about to see.
Or in this case, my cell phone.
Hey! Whatever works, right? ^_^
