Just take an adapter. Don't let that put you off a free holiday.

She won't need blended food by then - will she - ??? (My baby is nearly 12 so I can't remember!) But I would have thought she would be eating lots of finger foods by then?

Anyway you could take your blender, if you are still using it, and a plug adaptor!

If it is just for a week , why not just pack a potato masher?

Try and find out if the accommodation has a food processor. We have been using gites for years (if you are going to a gite) and the range of kitchen equipment in the 3 "epi" gites these days leaves British holiday accommodation standing IMO. You might not need to take one at all.

Often pavements are narrow & smaller shops difficult with a pushchair - I have always used babybjorn babysling on holidays. Useful for travelling as well as can carry little one safely on & off train/plane/boat. Could take some mosquito repellent suitable for babies (get mine from boots).
