When planning this trip, there was great debate on whether or not to pack the car seat. In the end it seemed so impractical it ended up on the leave-behind-list. Instead, our little treasure is securely fastened into his child back carrier. We can’t figure out a way to fasten him to the seat. All we can manage is to wrap the strap around each one of our arms, hold on tight, and hope for the best. Once faced with this I asked myself repeatedly if we were being irresponsible. Could we have asked the driver to wait while we install it in the back? Probably. Could we walk around downtown toting it around all day? Yuck. Could we find another driver willing to pick us up to get back to our lodgings? Risky. In the end, it didn't seem to jive with our style of travel.
