What’s with this “too young to travel” bit? Too young to go to Taipei, too young to go to Canada innit?
Kaohsiung to Taipei is not on overnight trip. Kaohsiung to Canada, I’ll think you’ll find, is.

Definitely not appreciated.
Who said anything about going to Canada now? There’s a pretty big difference between 2 months and one year. As new parents, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to be nervous about our very first overnight trip up north.
(I hope you don’t have this kind of attitude for everyone who asks for advice. Advice is always appreciated. Criticism, I’ll think you’ll find, is not).
And for anyone interested, the trip went quite well, although we had to come up with a travel itinerary before they would issue a passport for the potato.[/quote]
Sorry. I read Sandman’s post, which seemed to say “rather than travel to Taipei to get a passport, take her to Canada on her Taiwan passport”. Then I thought “That’s strange, surely travelling to Canada is a much bigger deal than travelling to Taipei”.
You must be applying for the passport for some reason other than travelling, I suppose. Can’t quite think what, though… Travelling overseas is what people usually use passports for!
(Also, like maoman says, travelling with a tiny baby is a complete piece of cake. The rocking motion of trains especially just sends them off to sleep… good idea to get the kid used to it, less likely to be a nightmare at 1 year+)
