Tips for Traveling with Kids
Check out our 3 quick tips for traveling with kids this season.
Admit it. There’s this fantasy associated with family vacations…that the week will be one long blissful thread of sunny days, children cheerfully playing together, smooth roads, short lines, and mechanical details that work like a charm.
But how fun is that to remember later on?
Looking back on our last Spring Break…
We’ll remember the unexpected freeze,
Being stranded on the 101 without a battery,
Our condo creaking at night as it gradually slid downhill to the sea,
AND going out to dinner twice one night when everyone under 17 refused to eat fresh seafood at the local hotspot
…where only seafood is served.
Pardon me. Are these my children???
Tip #1 – Embrace the unexpected.
Tip #2 – Keep the snacks savory instead of sweet.
Tip #3 – Exodus. Don’t leave home without it.
Over thirty years of family travel, we’ve packed pretty light at times, but NEVER without Exodus. This apple cinnamon fiber drink is unbeatable at soaking up nausea, relieving constipation or stomachaches AND mopping up high carb vacation foods we might not otherwise eat. Take along a mini waterbottle or lidded tupperware and Exodus and you’ll be prepared for any gastric emergency. If you’re curious about our families magical people paste, check it out here.
