In Episode 19 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast Amanda returns to the topic of travelling with kids – she’s on a mission to prove to everyone that taking kids traveling is beneficial both for the kids and the parents.
First up, she speaks with Bethaney of Flashpacker Family who has several years of experience of travelling with very young children and is certain it has many benefits for them. She provides a great argument against the people who think that because kids won’t remember their travels, it’s not worth taking them.
Lisa Luken of Simple Joy Living has taken several long (and many short) road trips with her three children in their quest to visit every state in the US and she has some great tips for taking kids travelling. Her and Amanda also chat about some of the great lessons both the adults and kids have learned from these experiences.
And finally, Adam of Bilingual Monkeys tells Amanda how his Japanese-born-and-raised kids enjoy the experience of returning to visit the American side of their family. The cultural differences between Japan and America are huge, of course, and it’s interesting to see them through the eyes of kids.
