“Our kids went along with what we wanted to do for a while, but then they started to protest. Michael got to the point where he was doing city walking tours by himself! Nine months into our trip, we stopped visiting big cities altogether and started opting for nature activities. Our kids were really happy in the outdoors, and we learned it’s really important to give them a voice. Global travel with kids is going to be different from what you’d choose to do on your own. To my disappointment, we didn’t visit a single castle in Europe, because the kids just weren’t interested.”
