Hello Mayada, visit the International mums/moms community here. There are a few postings about travelling with younger children.

The best piece of advice I can offer is RELAX. If you are tense, your twins will pick up on it and nobody will be happy.

Don't be afraid to ask flight crew for assistance. The level of help however, varies greatly between airlines. Take along familiar toys as well as something new if possible.

Check all the regulations for the airports you go through, make sure that you have nothing that could be confiscated along the way. Speaking from experience, there is no consistency!

Make it an adventure, and lastly (again) RELAX :)

Happy and safe travels!! (I travelled alone with our son across the globe a few times before his 3rd birthday, you CAN do it!)

Are you flying or going by car? If your flying 100% plunk down the cash for their own seats, it is safer & more comfortable. If you can fly late at night so they are sleeping.

If your going by car it means lots of breaks.

FYI your hubby is going on vacation, your just mom in another spot! :) You'll live I promise! Yes, your going to be really tired too, there is no way to avoid it!
