If you’re looking for expert family travel tips from people who have been there, here are our tips for how to travel with kids
Family travel can be overwhelming. I remember well when we took our first international family vacation to Portugal. Our son was 4 months old and we packed everything plus the kitchen sink.
The trip to Portugal was incredible (you can read about it here), but it could have been so much better if we had a little more experience under our belt. We would have booked different hotels, planned different routes, and spend more time exploring and seeing the incredible attractions.
10 years and 21 countries worth of family travel later, we have experienced nearly every failure and disaster. We’ve lost children, dodged hurricanes, been caught in epic floods, and even almost got stranded in Egypt at the beginning of the pandemic.
But along the way, we’ve also had some of the most unimaginable family adventures. And this family travel blog is all about sharing that experience with you to help you and your family have a safe, healthy, and inspiring experience with every family vacation.
Read on to find our resources and tips for family travel. From how to book, to how to plan your trips, even how to help your little ones nap properly during your travels.
