How to Plan a Fam­ily Trip

Lonely Planet Magazine (US) - - Globetrotter -

In­volve your kids in the plan­ning.

Not only does this help

get them en­gaged, it might open your eyes to some­thing you weren’t pre­vi­ously con­sid­er­ing.

Be pre­pared for long jour­neys.

Think snacks, en­ter­tain­ment, spare clothes and the right mind­set (that’s you,

not the kids).

Don’t over­sched­ule.

A good rule is to plan only

one ac­tiv­ity each day. Time for café juice breaks,

play­ground stops, and mid­day ho­tel naps will keep melt­downs to a min­i­mum.

Re­search, re­search,

re­search.

Re­mem­ber: the in­ter­net is your friend when it comes to fam­ily travel; take ad­vice from oth­ers; and have an

emer­gency plan.
