    I feel, travelling with kids, is one of the best things parents can do. Even if the kids are young, the memories of the trip do leave a mark, in bits and pieces maybe.
    I was lucky enough to be raised in an environment, where travelling to a new place every 2 years was the norm. I have distinct and vivid memories of some of the places I visited when I was as young as 6 years.

      Thanks for stopping by! It is so nice to have ‘proof’ like yours that kids really do remember! The science is very strong that experiences even very early help shape the brain!

    I definitely know a couple of friends that could really benefit from this advice. You sometimes get the impression from parents that their vacation time is essentially over until the kids finally leave and start their own lives. What you have said is so true and parents need to think that it really can be that win/win situation you spoke of.

      I’d love to dispel that myth! The fun – and the traveling fun doesn’t stop when you have kids. To be truthful it just gets better…different but better!

  4. I am a huge fan of planning my trips and planning them around kid friendly things to do. Those little bits of knowledge can save big dramas!

  5. We often think about how having children will affect our travels. It’s encouraging to know that kids can travel on your itinerary. Teaching them new things and encouraging them to develop new interests by showing them your interests is a great way to bond as a family.

      It is better and more fun than I can begin to tell you. The memories we make and the educational opportunities we are giving them are beyond words. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. My husband and I love traveling and we thought that having kids would hinder us from pursuing this passion. After reading your post, it made me realize that it shouldn’t be the case. I love that we could be ‘selfish’ and share whatever we love to our future kids. Great tips, thank you so much!

    We have been traveling with toddler with more than 2 years now and its all about toys, fun activities, breaks and feeds. This post is going to be the next stage when we will have to make every destination its museum and attraction we visit interesting and compelling. These tips are definitely going to help.

    Totally agree with you. Though I do not have kids I think a perfect – even with kids- is possible. Things are probably getting more complicated but you can still do your own things, as you mentioned. So keep planning your perfect trip – and bring the kids 🙂

  9. Natalie, I always enjoy reading your tips when it comes to family travel. While I do not have kids of my own, I understand the frustrations that parents could have when traveling with kids (I’ve seen it first-hand in my travels too). And it’s nice that you get to do more than just visit the zoo!

      How sweet, thank you! Yes, too much ‘kids only’ stuff will rot a parent’s brain! LOL!

    Such a detailed post! Traveling with kids is totally exhausted I think, but having a good plan will help a lot! I’m planning a trip with my little brother and will show mom this post 🙂
