To think a 12 hour journey for a 3-day break is too much for 18mo ds?

That's 5 hours to the ferry, 5 on the ferry, 2 to destination. Does not include loo stops. I want myself and ds to fly; dh thinks I'm being 'soft' . I think it's going to be awful in our car (ds screaming with frustration).
Dh has to drive as he is taking over a scooter to his dad in Ireland but we don't ....

Actually ByTheWay, no one could accuse us of being lightweight! We have an 18mo, a 7 yr old, 10 and 12 year old plus puppy smile

LOL - then you know it WILL be awful - but doable.... if you have to.... smile

Did a 12 hour car journey last summer when DS was around 18 months - it was for a week's break and we hit a lot of unexpected traffic. DS was an absolute legend (we stopped a few times but still...) BUT the aftermath was awful...every time he was in the car for more than 10 minutes he would hate it and wail his head off. This went on for a month or two and I even cancelled trips away as it wasn't worth the stress. He's better now thankfully.
