Travelling as a Family
Planning family holidays abroad can be a nightmare of logistics no matter what ages the children are. Solo holidays seem like a much easier, more relaxed option. There is only one person to please and that person is also the one making all the decisions about where to go and what to do. They can do whatever they want on their holiday, worrying only about themselves. Fortunately family holidays also have their own attractions. Taking a holiday together means a chance to relax and grow closer, spending quality time together as a family without the stresses of work or school to interfere. Just ensure that there is plenty for everyone to do so that nobody gets bored and tempers do not become frayed.
Amazing Experiences from a Young Age
Fortunately many places around the world cater for families now, even those with children as young as five. Taking young children abroad on holiday is easier than ever and allows them to have some incredible experiences and see amazing things from a young age. Imagine how exciting it would be for a child to be able to go back to school and tell their friends about travelling to a foreign country and everything that they saw and did there. From riding camels on a beach in Morocco to dog sledding in Slovakia, family holidays can now be something a little different that children are sure to remember for the rest of their lives. Holidays can last from roughly a week to a fortnight, perfect for fitting into the school breaks.
Solo Holidays versus Family Holidays
It is true there are benefits and disadvantages to both. A solo holiday allows more freedom, the chance to meet new people and do new things and of course there are many things children are unable to do or places they are not able to go. However it is possible to see new places and meet new people, while sharing the experience as a family and creating precious memories together. Imagine the wonder in a child’s eyes as they see ancient sites such as the Pyramids or the Great Wall of China. Or their delight at learning to ski in the Pyrenees or going white water rafting in Africa. There are so many things to do, even any teenagers along for the holiday will find it hard to maintain whatever bored indifference they might have. There is always someone to talk to and spend time with on a family holiday and parents may find the children’s excitement becomes infectious. Also, if parents want to spend a little time relaxing by themselves this is possible as well. Holidays that cater for families will have experienced, friendly staff and activities just for the children to enjoy if their parents need a bit of a break.
Being together every day as a family it may seem a bit much to go on holiday as a family as well. But this can be a rewarding experience. Rather than a typical family holiday spent mostly trapped in a car for hours, take them abroad and really show them what the world has to offer.
