You will usually find me on my own blog, The European Mama, but today we have something very exciting to share- a vlogging telephone and as we’re currently reading and discussing “Family On The Loose“, the topic is travel with kids! It works like a game of telephone- the first person answers a question from the previous person and asks a question to the next, but instead of writing a post, we’ll make videos.
It is my great honour to start the telephone. We now travel visibly less than we used to, but it is still a topic dear to my heart- I even wrote a funny post, called “20 Signs You Are a Travel-Experienced Family“, but I also believe traveling with children is very important to their development. It helps them appreciate other languages, cultures and ways of life. Additionally, it is absolutely fun and educational all at the same time.
It can bring a family together and create unforgetable memories. It can teach values such as resiliance, flexibility, planning, saving, open-mindedness and tolerance. It can also teach geography, history or maths (for example in learning to calculate currency).
While traveling, you and your children may meet different people, see various places and countries. Each has a story to tell. You will try many new foods- some of them delicious, others shocking. You will live in hotels, hostels, campings sites, at friends’ houses and other places and make exciting experiences in each and one of them.
The gift of traveling is one of the best thing to give to children. A great post even says that the only way to travel is with children.
Coming back to the vlogging (which means video blogging) game, we have fabulous and travel-experienced bloggers all over the world answering questions, and asking more questions.
