traveling with kids

we’ve had a bit of experience with this.
we took on cairo, istanbul and kuala lampur
with 3 children under 5.
it ain’t easy,
but with some creativity
and a lot of patience
and can be done enjoyably.
plus, it’s great to make those family memories together
and watch their minds and vocabularies expand.

i remember someone asking my oldest, then 4, what she did in turkey.
her response: we did a lot of walking around.
yep, that we did.
but we also have pictures of them dancing to the street music at taksim square.
there was another time
when friends were passing through amman, jordan while we were there.
my middle child, then 3, was looking through their guide book and excitedly said, “petra!”
all that walking through the ruins of petra,
plus the undulating camel ride back to the main entrance
must have help keep it in her long term memory.

One thought on “traveling with kids

  1. This is great information! Here are some awesome products that I have come across for traveling with little ones:

    First Juice No spill, reusable Juice Bottles
    I hate normal juice boxes that squirt all over when you try to put the straw in! This is a great juice for young kids, whether you are at home or traveling—but an absolute must on the road. As an added bonus, it’s organic, and contains 50% less sugar than other juices.

    Crumb Catcher Bib
    These things are made of nylon so they are easy to clean, and they have a crumb catcher pouch to snare crumbs and spills.

    Star Kids Snack and Play Travel Tray
    They are lightweight and easily stored in our vehicle, plus they are soft and thus should not hurt our children in the event of an accident. Also, they were very easy to hook and unhook from their car seats
