Family vacations, trips and travel can make for so many wonderful memories. Think back to your childhood and some of the things that stand out to you. Often these memories come from the times we got out of our comfort zones, out of our everyday routine and shook things up a bit.
However, traveling with kids (of any age) can be a challenge. Far more preparation is needed if anyone is going to maintain a shred of sanity. With a little bit of planning and research ahead of time, you can try to be ready for anything, making extra room for fun.
TRY is still the key word. Traveling with kids can be so much fun, but the only guarantee is that something will go backwards or sideways and you will have to be flexible with your best-laid plans. Hopefully, these posts, tips and tricks will help you plan your best trip yet!
