HUNNIE, I HAVE WHATS PRETTY MUCH CALLED A PRAM ADDICTION LOL whoops sorry caps on
i have been going abroad with my kids for years and years and always use a maclaren and thought they were great until 3 yrs ago when i had a try with a baby jogger city mini and i have to say, nothing compares when travelling.
lightweight and easy to push
unique one hand fold and folds small and flat
great recline with mesh breathable bit at the head
huge hood which completely covers your childs uppper body and face from the sun, no need for a parasol etc
great basket underneath for beach items etc.
really couldnt recomend these enough.
the only thing i would suggest is that maybe you would need a liner for the seat but no absolutely nessesary, im just fussy when it comes to comfort.
heres is a fab clip from youtube for you to watch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgVuzEwho5U
they dont come cheaply though hunnie but they do come up on ebay.
please be aware though, make sure its the baby jogger city mini and not the mini micro as these are much smaller and the hood etc isnt just as big.
Hope this helps xxxxx
