KinderJet

KinderJet

We are a family of five who loves to travel! But we didn't realize how much fun it could be to travel with kids until our oldest boys were almost 4. Before that we were afraid to travel with them. All the stuff you have to take, all the planning, it is expensive, and what if one of them gets hurt, or lost, or... it is just too hard. As it turns out, traveling with kids is hard. But it is also rewarding, fun, wonderful and awesome. And it is always worth it.

I posted a question in KinderJet Discuss about taking your kids out of school for travel, and I also posted it on a linkedin travel bloggers group. There were so many insightful and inspiring responses on linkedin, it got me thinking about the value of learning while traveling.

There have been more than a few times that I have gone away without my kids. I know! What??? The KinderJet Mom goes away without her kids??? Shocking! And every time, there is that feeling of leaving your children. It's a weird feeling. I feel it every time. And it's not a great feeling. Yet, I still find myself leaving them every now and then.

We have traveled as a couple, traveled with our kids on our own, and traveled with our kids and others, like another family or grandparents and other family members. There are pros and cons to each of those situations. On one trip, we traveled to a place where we have freinds to visit, another family with two boys, whose ages are not quite the same as our boys. This other family spent much of our vacation with us, which was great.
