It might involve a little more planning and fewer nights dancing on beaches, but having kids needn’t limit your travelling prospects, so says travel blogger Nellie Huang (wildjunket.com), author of new kids’ book, Explorers: Amazing Tales of the World’s Greatest Adventures.
She travels the world with her 4-year-old daughter, and here shares her top tips for how families can go adventuring and exploring together, without it becoming a logistical and fretful nightmare…
1. Don’t wait to travel, go now!
Many people are hesitant to travel adventurously with their kids for many reasons. ‘We’ll wait until they can remember,’ they say. But there is so much to gain from bringing your small kids outdoors and getting them to experience new things at a young age. You’ll stimulate their interest in the world, encourage them to appreciate nature and to be open to new cultures and experiences.
My daughter is only four, but I already notice the impact travel has on her. She is curious, adaptable and independent, and her sense of adventure is growing with each exciting trip we take.
