The Educational Tourist’s Travel Family
The Educational Tourist believes traveling with the kids and traveling with the family gives priceless opportunities for creating lifelong memories. It also gives you time together that otherwise we don’t get in our very hectic lives. This is especially true for an extended family that doesn’t live nearby.
