Family Rambling

In early 2014 we had saved enough money to fulfill one of our own travel dreams- the purchase of a motorhome! So readers will be seeing a huge focus on RV and camping adventures on Family Rambling in 2015. Our destinations haven’t been decided yet, but we are hoping for one good, long exploration through multiple states – and possibly crossing an international border!

We’re gearing up for an active summer in 2015. Most of our travel happens once the kids are out of school and so we tend to go full throttle for those two months. This year road trips – cars and RVs – will take the lead. They are a favourite because of the time it gives us together. We’re hoping to head into lesser known places across the United States and get a better understanding of our neighbours to the South.

Favorite post from 2014:  Do’s and Don’ts of Air Travel With Young Children

Dotting The Map

We are very excited for 2015. Our kids will take ski lessons for the first time, we have plans to check out a few Caribbean islands, and will be doing some extensive touring of the Southeast. We also need to renew my five year old’s passport this year so we are excited for some international destinations as well. Also we wrote and published a children’s ebook called Monsters Don’t Ride on Airplanes this year, a book that encourages good behavior while riding airplanes. We believe this is something that both people with young children and those without can get behind because it will help make the experience more enjoyable for everyone!  Check it out, Monsters Don’t Ride on Airplanes.

Have Baby Will Travel

Our travel plans for 2015 will include a lot of mini-breaks and extended long weekends. Although we have a set amount of vacation time, we’ve found that by breaking it up into more, shorter getaways makes us feel like we’re getting more bang for our buck! Also, we’ll definitely be heading back to Cuba as much as we can. With the travel embargo soon lifting for our American friends, we want to gather as much info as possible and enjoy the Cuba we’ve come to love before things really start to change (hopefully for the better).

As my kids (3 and 5) get older, I’m finding it even more amazing to travel with them and watch their delight at each destination we arrive in. On the agenda so far in 2015 are trips to Phuket in Thailand, London (where my family are) and Louisiana! I also quite fancy the idea of doing more train travel, perhaps in mainland China.

Families Go Travel

I’m the editor of FamiliesGo!, where we help families plan vacations that are fun for everyone in the family, not just kids. We’ll start 2015 by returning to one of our favorite winter destination, Lake Placid, in the Andirodack mountains in upstate New York. We’ll ice skate on the Olympic speed skating oval, walk on the lake if it’s frozen, ski at Whiteface mountain and cap off our days enjoying the beer and food at either of the towns two really excellent microbrew pubs. I’m looking forward to being active during the day so I can enjoy without guilt the lobster mac & cheese and the Adirondack Brewing Company. We’re not sure yet of our summer plans, though we are leaning toward a roadtrip across either the Northeast or Southest US. We’ll end the year with friends, glamping on the US Virgin Islands, a back-to-basics beach vacation I’ve always wanted to do. And we think our daughter (nearly 8) is old enough.

    Thanks for including Family Rambling in your list of travel blogs to follow! We’re in the beginning stages of planning our first RV getaway of the year for early April which will take us to the plantations of Louisiana, then New Orleans, followed by some time in Austin, Texas.

      That’s awesome Jody! I remember growing up with an RV in my family, and we were always on the go during the summer. Great memories! Even last summer before we left the States for Asia, my parents took Josh and I camping in the RV. Even as an adult, it is so much fun.

      All the best in 2015!
