Nail Down a Destination That Everyone Loves
First things first, harmony is really important when traveling. Because let’s be honest – traveling can be stressful. From getting through security and boarding your flight on time, to going to new places and learning as you go, the last thing you need is tension from each other. If you have younger kiddos this one is a little tough but it’s absolutely doable! If you’re looking for some ideas, check out these top travel destinations.
Plan as Much as You Can
Once you figure out where you want to go, plan it out! You can plan as much or as little as you want but when you’re planning with a large family, nailing down details is never a bad thing.
Check Your Expectations
As much as you want to have everything planned out to the T, realize that sometimes things happen. Flights get missed, reservations get messed up and weather ruins plans. Keep these things in mind and prepare yourself for the unexpected!
This may seem silly, but it’s one of our favorite tips – GET EXCITED! These memories you plan on making will last a lifetime, but the stress, guilt, and anxiety over little details won’t. You never know the next time you might be able to make one of these trips will be, so make sure you’re excited and ready to have a blast.
