We like traveling with our children, and wish the same to you. Who are we anyway?
We are parents Sergey and Natalia. Our three daughters and two sons were born abroad and we have lived abroad for almost

Traveling with kids offers a new perspective. Your
children will open up new things to you as you travel. Kids love both the
mystery and history. Our daughter once wrote in a school composition: "I

if only to watch the sheer joy on our children's faces.
We remember the fun things we did and the great places we
visited. We remember the first time our daughter saw a Disney character, and how
as she grew the fear of the first time went away and then character pictures
were important to her.
Children, even little ones, learn there's something beyond
their own homes and families. The practicalities may change as the children
grow. But the memories made during any trip will remain long after the vacation
Now is a great time to be traveling as a family.
Resorts and cruises offer programs for kids from two to 17. Kiddie travel has
become big business.
Remember, your next vacation can be a great one if
you just take a bit of advice from someone who understands. Yes, years later,
family trips are often our best memories of our kids' young years and just may
be the most perfect family vacation ever! The years pass
quickly, so enjoy your time together now.
It's easy to plan the perfect family vacation...
