Our Alisa’s trip to Barcelona (in May, 2012 for 19 days) was her first time traveling where she happened to turn five months old. Despite the fact that our relatives weren’t quite fond of our plans, it turned out to be the most stress-free trip (for the child) and my husband and I managed to have a wonderful vacation as well. Alisa fed just on breast milk without supplements and we took a fold-up umbrella stroller with us along with a backpack. We planned our museum trips around Alisa’s daytime sleep and in the course of three days, not only were we able to explore the whole city and the famous museums, but we also had time to make it all the way out to the Montserrat Monastery, which is located 70 km from Barcelona.
