What's one of the funniest experiences (good or bad) you’ve had traveling with kids?
A visit to Versailles, one of the most famous sites of the French Revolution. The kids were so cranky and inclined to disagree that we felt like we were experiencing our own mini French Revolution. It wasn't funny while we were living it but now as we look back on the pictures it is at least memorable and the looks of torture on their faces make us laugh.
If you could share one piece of travel advice with other moms, what would it be?
Don't try to pack it all in. Many times with kids, less is more. Approach a new destination thinking that you will visit again in the future. Choose your must-see activities and then have a secondary list of activities that you'll do only if the timing is right and you won't be disappointed if you can't fit them into the schedule.
If you could take your kids anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Galapagos Islands with a stop in Quito, Ecuador. You get Andean culture, a gorgeous beach and ocean vacation and animals that can only be seen there. The kids get to experience the most interesting science class of their lives.

What's a great tip for traveling with kids during the holidays?

If you usually drive to the airport and self-park, consider taking public transportation or asking friends for a lift during the heavy holiday travel days. Nothing creates stress faster than finding there is no parking and finding that the only open spots are in a land far, far away when you have loads of stuff in hand.
