Why Families Love To Travel
"Traveling provides us with quality time focused on our family with out typical life responsibilities. Also, We get to learn and experience new things with each other."
"Travelling has been an unparalleled way to connect with my 2-year-old and see the world through her eyes. Without travel, I wouldn't have experienced my favorite moments with her."
"Traveling teaches my kids that the world is full of diversity, where some people look like them and others don’t, but we are all the same."
I love traveling with my daughter because I remember traveling as a kid. We didn’t sleep at fancy hotels nor see any of the seven wonders; in fact, we drove to most of our destinations because we couldn’t afford to fly. But those hours in the car, racing in the National Mall with my cousins, fishing on the lake with my dad, the first time we went crabbing, walking into Constitution Hall all remain with me. I want that for my kid.
If we were meant to be in one place, we’d be born as a tree. Explore, with your loved ones, the boon of being alive as a person.
You can buy your child material things, but showing them the world creates memories will last a lifetime.
When we share travels with our kids, the world belongs to us and we learn to feel as we belong anywhere in the world
Our family gains more than tan lines and extra treats during vacation. We experience joy, tantrums, new sights, sounds, smells, and cultural awakenings that will help our next generation of independent travelers to journey with understanding, kindness and respect.
