All things family travel
You’re traveling with kids, eh?
Once upon a time vacation planning was as exciting as the actual vacation. You know, planning the one you’ll return a new woman full of hope, dreams and unparalleled motivation. The planning left you mesmerized in promise and rejuvenation. Remember that? BK- Before Kids.
Planning a family vacation brings an altered vision of rejuvenation, we get that. Once you’re beyond the initial glamour of the idea you can quickly end up buried in seemingly endless details. Multiple flights, TSA-approved snacks, accommodations to fit everyone’s needs, mounds of luggage, pre-booking activities, navigating on the ground, and managing long stretches of in-route entertainment. You’re often left needing a vacation from the vacation planning.
Family travel plans reimagined
The first step to traveling with kids is understanding vacations are no longer vacations, they are now trips and travel. Trips and travel are great things, BTW! Trips are full of memories and experiences. Travel is essential for connectivity and growth. Travel and trips are carefully orchestrated to enable a manageable balance between exploration, freedom, downtime, and allowances for routines.
We want to inspire you to travel with your kids, but we’re not providing an inspiration focused travel blog. We’re providing balanced in-destination options and grab-n-go itineraries based on what worked for us. We’re helping to build your confidence to take that trip, to go out and travel, to get lost together.
