GLO­BE­TROT­TING WITH GRAND­CHIL­DREN

Western Times - - OLDER & WISER -

Robyn’s tips for travel with grand­kids: Book some­where you haven’t been be­fore so you can dis­cover some­thing new to­gether. This makes for the best mem­o­ries. Con­sider book­ing a small group ad­ven­ture where you can ben­e­fit from lo­cal tour lead­ers and the com­pany of other chil­dren, par­ents and grand­par­ents. En­cour­age kids to keep a jour­nal or a daily video di­ary so they can look back on their cher­ished mem­o­ries. Em­brace all op­por­tu­ni­ties for them to get out­side of their com­fort zones and try new things from lo­cal food to play­ing pop­u­lar lo­cal chil­dren’s games. Carry books, cards and ac­tiv­i­ties for long trav­el­ling days, plus take ex­tra snacks than usual. Also, pack re­fill­able wa­ter bot­tles and cloth bags, to avoid sin­gle-use plas­tics and plas­tic bags over­seas.
