Benefits of Travelling with Kids – Episode 54 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

You have probably heard me rant before about my (many, many) answers to the question – “why travel with kids if they won’t remember it?” I won’t rehash that now but suffice to say, I strongly believe there about a gazillion benefits of travelling with kids and most of them apply whether they remember the trip or not! And I say that having travelled as a child, and as a mother who’s travelled a lot with a young child.

These days, my son is seven and it’s abundantly clear to me that the travel he’s done during his lifetime so far (even though it sometimes strikes me as excessive and spoilt, compared to my childhood!) has had plenty of benefits for him and for me. I talk about some of them, and a bunch of others which my guests contribute, in this episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast. Enjoy!

Benefits of Travelling with Kids

Honestly, the benefits of travelling with kids are uncountable – and that’s benefits both for kids and their parents! in Episode 54 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast, I talk with three travel-loving parents about how they travel with their kids.

First up, novelist Natasha Lester talks about what her three children learn from their travels abroad and how she considers it a far better education than school. Next up, journalist Alicia Nelson and I chat about just how much extra fun travel can be with younger children and the different viewpoints you can get by slowing down and seeing the world through their eyes. Finally, Mark Wyld of Wyld Family Travel chats about the different attitudes his two daughters take to their trips to Europe.
