Travelling With Your Parents – Episode 87 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast

Travelling with your parents as an adult is an interesting experience. It can be an amazing way to create beautiful family memories and it can be a short-cut to extreme arguments – or so I’m told, because I know I’ve been very lucky to have had only wonderful experiences on trips with my parents. With my mum, my all-time favourite experience was our time backpacking in Russia – I treasure this picture of the two of us standing on Red Square in Moscow with my beloved St Basil’s Cathedral in the background!

I have travelled less with my dad but really enjoyed showing he and my stepmother parts of Japan when they came to visit when I lived in Osaka. I’d been to Mie prefecture and seen this fishing village earlier in my stay and it was a dream come true to bring my dad there to show him, as I knew it’d appeal to him!

Travelling With Your Parents

I just love the variety of stories I’ve got to share in this episode about travelling with your parents as an adult, because everyone has ended up having a great time for all different reasons. The very first guest is my delightful friend Jo of Lifestyle Fifty. When she told me she had a story about her mother coming with them on her honeymoon, I knew I had to hear more, and as always, Jo’s story doesn’t disappoint.

Following the honeymoon story I chat with Kati who recently travelled with her parents in the Northern Territory here in Australia. It’s an interesting story about the compromises you might need to make to deal with the different preferred travelling styles of your family members and I thought Kati did a great job of this.

Finally, I speak with Eva who has really made a habit of travelling with her parents in recent years – starting a truly delightful family tradition. I hope my son is listening to that one!
