On Taking Your Kids Travelling – Episode 66 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

The topic comes up regularly in everyday conversation for me – the value of taking your kids travelling. Don’t get me started on the “but they won’t remember it!” argument, or we’ll be here all day!

Of course, I love talking to like-minded people about the trips they’ve done with their children and all the different ways it has changed them, and helped them to develop in ways they wouldn’t have if they’d always stayed home. And this episode of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast touches on many ways that travel benefits kids.

In particular, do listen through to my final guest, Penny Wincer, who talks about travelling with children with special needs. Her son has autism and I think what she says about why she believes it’s so important for him that she face all the challenges involved and help him to travel is really worth hearing. (Thanks Penny!)

On Taking Your Kids Travelling

Regular listeners already know I think it’s enormously beneficial to take your kids travelling from a young age, but in Episode 66 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast I chat with three other mothers who agree with me.

First up is family travel expert Sharon Gourlay of Where’s Sharon. With three kids aged between one and seven, and many, many trips with them under her belt, she’s well placed to talk about many of the reasons travelling with kids is so valuable.

Brooke McAlary is my next guest and we share a very strong belief that kids learn so much from travelling, and that it shapes the way they’ll experience life.

Finally, I talk with Penny Wincer, who speaks openly and beautifully about traveling with a child with special needs. Penny’s son has autism and this has changed the way she approaches travel, but it certainly hasn’t stopped her.
