    I don’t have kids, but I know from all my friends who do, that it’s a lot of work. I really admire you for taking your kids abroad and teaching them all there is about the world while young. I like your tip about feeding a hungry child. I think I feel the same way as a hungry adult!

    Wish I could show this to my mom :p but I feel you! We always travel together as a family, at least once a year, since I was a little girl. Hopefully I can practice these when I have my own family one day too 🙂

    What a thorough article! I love how you’ve listed enrichment activities for children of diff ages — and crayons are always a great idea!

    I do not have children but it is something that I am hoping for in the future. I completely understand how much work they are because all of my friends have them and occasionally I travel with them. It is definitely completely different to the way that I travel on my own and with my husband. I like that you take your kids everywhere and wanting to educate them, I wish my parents had done that for me 🙂

    I have heard so many stories of being bothered by a cranky and sleepy child while travelling. Many of my friends complain about revolving the trip around the mood of the child. I like the way you have listed these points so honestly. Like you said, it’s about how you talk to them and educate them that matter.s Cheers!!

  6. I totally agree with this. We have a two year old and no way can he go somewhere already too hungry or tired. We let him eat or sleep when he needs, it makes travel way more enjoyable for us all

    I love to travel and having kids is one of the things that worries me. I am worried about not being able to bring my kids with us when we travel. Or, that it can limit how we travel. This post has truly opened my eyes to understand that there is no reason to fear.

      Abigail I am SOOO happy to hear that! It is true that traveling requires more effort to get them ready but it is so worth it to see the things you want to see! You don’t have to go to Chuck E Cheese only!
