One Of The Funniest Experiences I've Had Traveling With Kids
This is a "funny after the event" experience. We spent an afternoon snorkelling on a remote spot on the Red Sea (Egypt) with a group of friends. There was a camel nearby and my husband took our 11-month-old daughter over to have a closer inspection. The owner of the camel asked us if we’d like a photo of her with the camel while it was sitting. "sure" we thought, "why not?" BUT then without warning he climbed on the camel and commanded it to stand with our precious cargo tucked under his arm! Apparently to show her off to the nearby villagers. We had a good laugh about it later, but my heart was beating quickly at the time watching my precious baby trot off on a camel.
A Piece Of Travel Advice For Moms
If you loved travelling before kids, then you should continue the tradition with kids! The thought of travelling with kids (very young kids in particular) can be overwhelming, but if you do your groundwork and prepare before you leave, you will be pleasantly surprised. Of course there are going to be trials and tribulations (life at home offers these as well) but I think the positives of travel far outweigh the negatives. Plus travelling with your kids offers personal growth opportunities for all involved. Children in particular grow and learn through travel. I’d love for my kids to become responsible global citizens, and we try our utmost through frequent travel to expose them to the different ways of the world and the multitude of cultures that exist around us. One other piece of advice – always get travel insurance, no matter what!
Where I'd Go If I Could Take My Kids Anywhere In The World
The Galapagos Islands. My daughter in particular loves animals and marine life, so whenever we travel we always include visits to wildlife parks, zoos and aquariums. A visit to the Galapagos Islands is something that we would love to do one day, but probably when the kids are past toddlerhood so that they can remember the experience and take part in all the activities that the Galapagos offer. It may be a once in a lifetime chance.
