Traveling With Tweens – Making It Fun for Them and You
Two years ago, I was lucky enough to be able to take a European vacation with my tween sons. For 19 glorious days we explored the sights, enjoyed our time together, and made lasting memories. To this day, we still find ourselves talking about something we did, saw, or ate. We definitely had a few missteps early on-from activities they found boring to food they thought was weird-but we soon found our footing and had a truly fantastic time. What I learned traveling with my tweens can save you some frustration-and money.  สล๊อตเว็บตรงแตกง่าย  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 1-Include them in planning. We watched travel channel shows, read travel books, and formed the right conversation. To this, we added travel journaling. Now everybody in the family can contribute to the travel journal. Visiol online was our best tool. It let us capture our photos, record our stories, and write journal pages together-all on the same page. It made the page easy to follow, and saved us lots of time and energy.

• Rule 2-Plan, Plan, Plan. We created a detailed week long itinerary, packed it with activities, and checked it off the list as we went. recess time, lunch time for friends and computers, and dinner time for dinner and watching movies. We did not book a lot of hotel rooms, but booked the best dinner and hotel rooms we could afford. We ate in small restaurants and tourist shops. Hotel coupons allowed us to eat in the guest facilities of the hotel-that way we saved money and we gained more experience eating in those places.  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 3-Pack light the first day. We came home with heavy bags. After meticulously folding and wrapping them, we put everything we could in the two suitcases we brought home with us. Less than a week later, we were back at home, unpacking and poem writing.  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 4-Say No to the Kiss My Foot rule. We had fun in our garden one day and decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. We stopped and chatted about our travels. As we walked, my son said to me, “Mommy, why didn’t we eat that.” kisses my feet” What? Why would you say that? I asked. He said, “Because we don’t have bathrooms and no place to pee. It’s scary!”  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 5-stay warm. We took a walk in the evenings after dinner and one night checked into a nearby motel. When we left the next morning, we had warm slippers and mosquito spray with us.  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 6-cooked good food. We made healthy decisions when and where we ate. We stuck to our plan and we were able to eat healthily. We especially stuck to breakfast. We filled our bellies at breakfast and found other ways to stay warm.

• Rule 7-placeautomobileat home. We left home early for our trip so that we were prepared. While we were at home, we drank more juice than normal in anticipation of going on the trip. We also kept warm by wearing masks, hats, and gloves that we brought home from our trip.  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 8-take time for yourself. When we left home, we didn’t have to take the stress that comes with leaving. We were able to spend time on our own doing what we wanted to do and worrying about ourselves.  Traveling Tweens

• Rule 9-abby fashion. While it’s important to be comfortable, it’s equally important to be stylish. Looking stylish while on vacation allows you to wear the things you’d never dream of without feeling like you’re out of character.

• Rule 10-follow your bliss. Come to think of it, that’s what living in the tropical sanctuary of Bali is all about. Staying in Bali is a choice. It’s a choice to follow your bliss.

We are Bali. We know what it means to live in Bali. We’re not afraid of the dark. shadows, mystery, and the unknown terrify us the world over, but they are what define our existence. With these rules in mind, life in Bali will continue to be the paradise on earth.
