The thought of travel with family can seem like a wonderful event when you get frustrated from something or annoyed by a few turn of events. Traveling with family is a complete beast. You will get to know more about your family. No matter how well traveled you are, traveling with the family is a unique and exciting experience.
A few tips can prove to be helpful if you want to have the best time when traveling with the family.
1. Ensure that you have same comfort levels as far as the trip is concerned. If you love bus travels, trying new delicacies by the roadside and camping, make sure that you do not travel with people who would rather dine in the finest restaurants and want luxurious hotels and cars for accommodation and transport.
2. Think about age compatibility before you begin with the travel plans. Your ages and stages should be compatible enough so that every person traveling finds companionship and does not end up feeling lost in the group. If you have an elderly person in the group, be sure to get another elderly person they can relate to throughout the trip. You also do not want to travel with one child in the midst of adults because it can get very boring for the child. Get enough children and adults in the group so everyone fits in.
3. Think about activities that you all love and make sure that the areas you aim to visit will accommodate everyone’s preferences. The best thing to do is to make sure that if you are sporty you choose a travel group that is just a sports, if you love adventure then go for adventurous people to make up your travel group. It becomes easy to stay happy when you all have matching preferences in activities and other important areas.
4. Get the most appropriate transport and accommodation solutions. You are traveling as a group and you, therefore, should be on one bus, train or flight. When getting accommodation, try packages that are good enough to cater to every person in the group including any toddlers. You do not have to share the same room but you should at least be in the same facility to keep travel plans organized.
5. Talk with your family about bills and other travel expenses before you start traveling. You can also split the travel expenses amongst you, so everyone knows where they are going to chip in. Funds are the not the biggest element when traveling with family. Balance everything out to have a pleasant experience throughout the trip.
Traveling with family can be an exciting venture, but you must be willing to make all necessary plans to make sure that everyone in the group remains happy.
Keeping the Faith in all things big and small.
I have had a great weekend off to hang out with the family on this Labor day holiday and can’t think of any other way that I would have wanted to spend it.
We had a great day at the pool and made great mixed drinks while enjoying smoked chicken and brisket. I was enjoying the fact that my one and a half-year-old is now wanting to spend time with us doing everything we do. We sat down tonight and watched a great movie that was of the spiritual sense and I could not believe how much I did not understand how we are to forgive and forget and let the big man upstairs take care of everything. When I was watching this movie “the shack” I was in tears as well as my wife. We were both in awe at how the story played out and what was expected of the father who had lost his little girl in such a tragic way. The story was a beautiful tale of a father that hated everyone and everything after the death of his little angel. I as a father could not even begin to understand what that must have been like to have to bury your baby after a monster was given the chance to take her away. It was so dishearting to see the pain that man went through. I couldn’t even begin to imagine that feeling. We all understood though that you must not judge, even a monster that could commit such a horrific crime. That is not our job to do nor would you want that power to decide. I was enlightened to the fact that I would handle the situation the exact same way I suppose. It would be terribly hard to say I forgive you as the man in the movie was asked to do by God. It does make complete and total sense that If we must love and forgive our fellow man to please our Lord then that is what we shall do. Even when faced with adversity and doubt, you must keep a level head. Sure, easier said than done. But, It is a requirement to let God do his job. We will never understand everything and or try to. It is not our place to do so. The crazy part is, I have seen myself the good things that our Lord and Savior has done in my life and many others. The hard thing in life is true blessings that must be cherished. For the reason that they make us stronger and better people. It is a great empowerment to be able to love unconditionally and understand when people make mistakes and have been lead down the wrong path that will ultimately lead us to our destiny and callings in life. The way that we look at certain situations in hindsight may just be a way to understand that we are all flawed and considered a beautiful mess in the scheme of the big picture. Just remember that we are created equal and all have flaws. But, We are all able to forgive and understand one another to help each other grow and become a better you and I. Thank you for reading this and God Bless.
