Traveling with Kids Part 1: Planning and Preparation

Traveling with Kids: Planning and Preparation

Due to circumstances outside of my control, my posting has been sporadic lately.  A big part of that reason is that we’re getting ready to go on a huge 3 month adventure!  We’re heading to Europe!  With our three little kids! Who are four and under!  And yes, I’m nervous and excited at all at once!

In just under three weeks, my husband and I will be fulfilling a dream we’ve had since we got married (and I’ve had since I was 15) and going on a three month international trip, centered in France and the United Kingdom.   Hopefully, this will be the first of many as, long-term,  we would love to provide travel to our kids as part of their regular education.  A lot of decisions have come together to make this trip a reality: from job choices to even how we live on a daily basis.

Starting today, I will be doing a series of posts on traveling: from planning; packing tips; flying tips; things we learn along the way; tips on making traveling with children successful and rewarding and the tools we used to achieve this.

Keep reading to find out how we are making this  all work!
