Let’s face it, traveling with kids is nothing like traveling without kids. Our son Aedan is six and our daughter Emma is four. Michael, my husband, and I decided long ago that traveling with kids was better than not traveling at all. We are a military family, and have already moved from California, to Guam, and now to Germany, with many side adventures along the way.
In their short lives they have stood by the giant sequoias at Yosemite National Park, strolled through the vineyards at Napa Valley, played in the snow at Lake Tahoe, lived in the middle of the pacific on Guam, held a koala bear in Australia, climbed The Great Wall of China, watched the fireworks at Cinderella’s castle, and watched Old Faithful blow at Yellowstone National Park, and recently stood at the Berlin Wall, just to name a few things.
And now we are here, with Europe at our front door. We are no experts at traveling, I’m aware of that. But we have survived many long flights, car rides, and moves from one side of the globe to the other. So many things to see and do in the next four years, I just want to share with others our experiences and hopefully inspire others to pick up and go, even with their small kids. I encourage my fellow travelers to comment freely and offer up your suggestions and tips for any of our destinations. I look forward to sharing our adventures and misadventures as we explore Europe!!
