Having the kids along was more relaxing for us as a couple, actually. I did not have to leave copious notes behind with sitters and I did not have to worry about the kids….because they were with US, after all! Seeing places through their eyes also made our trips more enriching. For example, watching our youngest son’s eyes light up when he rode a subway for the first time made it even more fun for us again.
Mealtimes were more fun because we got to order a variety of dishes and eat them “family style”. Going into dungeons, torture museums, optical illusion museums and Ghosts and Ghouls tours made us feel young again. And best of all—-body surfing in the ocean waves made beach time an energetic activity! Kids bring the WONDER into traveling this wonderful world.
