1. Plan your itinerary together
It’s a given, your children will have different interests and preferences, so give them a list of activities from which they can each choose a favourite. Parents can schedule in some time to relax while the kids enjoy their private tennis or surfing lesson. This will ensure everyone, even your hard to please teenager, will have something to look forward to.
2. Carry a medicine box
3. Be wary of dehydration
4. Keep active in the airport
5. Plan for the plane
6. Prepare for over-tired tantrums
7. Keep a travel journal
8. Look for local trinkets
9. Allow time for exploring on hikes and bike rides
Although you may be more focused on burning calories during a hike or a bike ride, be aware that children will be much more curious of their new surroundings. When planning the day, leave more time than you think you need for your little ones to point out new sights and discoveries on guided excursions. If it’s safe to do so, go exploring off the beaten track to inspire an enquiring mind-set.
10. Take advantage of kids clubs and activities
