Travel with kids

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are avid travelers, and have been to more than 20 countries together since we met a few years ago.

We are now very excited to be 13 weeks pregnant with our first child (conceived while traveling!). My husband, however, often jokes that our travel days are over. I recognize that travel is going to change dramatically moving forward, and that it will likely be on the back burner for at least a few years, but I contend that it is still very possible. Given our love of travel, this is something we will want to share with our child. And how better to experience a country anew (whether real Italian gelato or an African safari) than through the fresh eyes of a child.

Can you help me set my husband's mind at ease a bit? How have you traveled with children, especially outside of child-specific destinations? What do you love about traveling with kids? Despite the challenges, how is traveling with kids rewarding and possible?
