Traveling has always been one of my favorite things to do and things didn’t change after I became a mom. Traveling with kids is an amazing experience but it also comes with its own challenges.
After I started traveling with my son (when he was a baby), I realized that the whole definition of a vacation has changed! There were many things that I wasn’t able to do anymore (like sleeping for hours under an umbrella on the beach) but there were also so many happy moments that I was able to enjoy with my son (like the moment when he first felt the ocean on his feet and giggled every time a wave touched him).
Even when things got overwhelming, I always tried to find tips and ideas to help us overcome the challenges and enjoy our family trips!
In time, things got a lot easier! Not only because my son grew up (he is 4 and a half now) but because I learned many things that help me handle long car trips and long-haul flights better.
We travel very often and on every trip, I get the chance to learn new things that make our vacations more enjoyable for the whole family. I’m always glad to share these tips, so I decided to gather here some of the best ideas that can make your family trips a lot easier and more fun!
I hope that you’ll find here practical tips to help you plan your vacations and resource to make trips more fun for the little ones!
