When I was young, my parents’ family vacation included driving around in a stuffy car for a week. My parents have the skill to choose the hottest week in summer. Nevertheless, we are still very interesting and managed to find interesting spots to explore, and these are still my memories.
When I was 18, I discovered the joy of traveling to distant destinations alone. Jumping on a plane to cruise in Brazil, Europe or the Caribbean has become a lifelong passion for me for my whole family.
Over the years, family vacations have continued to develop. Like today, there have never been more choices, varieties and more choices for family vacations. Especially starting from 9/11, it pays attention to family and community and has played an important role in our society. The tourism industry has noticed and prepared for families. All-inclusive vacation packages and cruises including kids clubs and special activities; to a resort that provides you with a babysitter, this is the best time for a family trip.
Not sure yet? Here are some of the benefits of family vacations:
1. Family playing together, together…
It’s time to get rid of all this. After get off work, phone calls, children’s activities, daily work list. This is a great opportunity to spend time with your family and get to know each other. Go hiking, build sand castles, visit museums. Have more time to talk and spend time without having to be distracted every day.
2. Teach the children well…
Travel is an excellent learning tool for children. They can have the opportunity to learn directly about what they have learned in school and what they have watched or watched on TV. Whether you are away from home or a few hours’ drive in Europe, any destination can provide this learning experience. Family vacation will teach children different culture, food, history, geography, climate, environment and so on. The best part is that for them, then learning through homework will become more interesting!
3. A new experience they will never forget.
Family vacations provide a new place for your children to experience, and your children never have it. Last winter, we went on a family cruise. This was the first cruise for my 9-year-old son. We told him all the conditions of the ship and showed him the photos, but I don’t think he can fully understand its true conditions. We landed in Fort Lauderdale and when we drove to the port, we could see our ship in the distance. He was excited, but still cold. Once we arrived at the port and pulled up beside the ship, he looked up at the huge ship, his mouth opened, and he was taken aback. This response is worth the price of the entire journey, and I know our family will always remember this.
4. Life is an adventure, especially when on vacation.
Even if you are not particularly brave, there are still many ways to experience the adventures of every corner of our planet. This may be as simple as going to the zoo of your destination to see the native animals in the habitat, or exploring the Amazon jungle. There are so many things to see and do, choose an adventure that appeals to your family and do it together.
5. Your child will not always be a child.
Didn’t it seem that the boy who just borrowed the car was in diapers and daycare yesterday? Most parents agree that time seems to fly by, and those babies have grown up, but you don’t know. Sometimes your child will lead a life of his own and a sad life, and the time spent with parents will not be at the top of their list. Spend some time on family vacations while they still want your company.
6. Time to relax…
Now this part is very important. One of the main reasons for taking a vacation is to take a break and recharge. This is important to everyone, so don’t overdo it. Try to plan an active day and then relax for another day. It’s difficult to do it in certain destinations like Disney World with so many attractions and attractions, but trust me. The children will no longer be so tired and cranky, which will give you a reason to return to your destination again!
I know everything sounds good, it makes you want to book a trip that has been delayed, doesn’t it? Well, I will add some actual content here and list some negative factors. Traveling has some natural pressures. The flight was delayed, the children became wildly thinking, the family may have too many good things and be nervous with each other. The list can go on, but don’t let you down, there are too many advantages to ignore.
Therefore, whether you choose to pack your children in a car or fly to an exotic destination, the benefits are the same. As far as memory is concerned, we tend to remember beautiful things. The time the family spends together, the new things we discover, the new friends we make, what we see. This is what your children will remember and a fact that you enjoy it when you are with them.
