Tips For A Great International Family Trip

Tips For A Great International Family Trip


There’s no way to replicate or replace a good family vacation: It’s an opportunity to build bonds, share experiences, create memories, and draw closer. And it’s helpful for kids to see the world outside of their own homes, too. But the logistics of international travel can be daunting to some families—how do you do it and do it well without stressing (or at least with as little stress as possible)? There are some smart planning things to do ahead of time, and some travel tips that offer solid advice, too. For starters, see what the country requirements are for your entry—at least a passport and maybe a visa, too.

So before you pack up your bags for a weekend getaway, let’s talk about what you’re bringing. Because let’s remember, vacation isn’t about going there it’s about being there. The last thing you want is to have to worry about dragging that bulky luggage through the airport or showing up to your destination dangerously under-packed.

7 Tips for Traveling with Tech Gadgets


7 Tips for Traveling with Tech Gadgets

1. Pack Light
How much technology do you need to lug along with you? It’s heavy. It might get damaged. Or stolen. Before you load your laptop, tablet, phone, and camera, think about what you’ll be doing with all that gear on your trip. A phone and tablet might be more than adequate for some of the trips. Especially if you are planning to do more leisure than work. And if you’re not planning on doing a lot reading, maybe just a Kindle is all you need instead of a laptop.
