Travel and tourism is not a new thing to people. To achieve your goal of family togetherness, you might consider something more outdoorsy. In an effort to steer you away from memories of kids campouts and insect bites, envision something a little more refined, but active. If you ask me, all vacations are pretty active and adventurous. The setting of your adventure can vary greatly from place to place. If you are looking to spend time with your family, but stay in one location to eliminate the headache of packing and repacking, you have two great options: go on a cruise or go to a resort catering to families. We gave up Petra too to stay in Eilat and relaxe, even if it was just for one day, it was definitely worth it. Try staying at the Prima Music Hotel, great place with a great view of the mountains and the Red Sea. Loved the food too! Wrote a hub about that too.

Fantastic advice thank you. We are travelling to Vietnam with our 11month old daughter in 6 weeks so found all of the information very useful. My husband thought I was overreacting with everything I was planning on taking (portacot, food etc.) but I think I now have him convinced. Many thanks for taking the time to post this very helpful information. I enjoyed looking at your photos and reading your article very much. Bali looks interesting and beautiful. I’ve love to explore nature on the island as well as the culture travel insurance of the local people. Assess the physical demands. Don’t overestimate your physical abilities. If your trip will require 5 miles of daily walking in tough terrain you need to make sure that you’re up to the challenge. An adventure trip is not the time to begin a fitness program. If traveling with an adventure outfitter, discuss your normal fitness routine to ensure that you are in shape for the trip. Online travel forums can be an excellent resource for information from those that have “been there and done that.

Upon returning home, I reflected on my recent trip to Phoenix, Arizona. I was having mixed emotions about how I felt it had gone. That’s when I realized that I had actually experienced two trips at the same time. One was very nice, and a positive experience. The other one sucked. Allow me to share my reflections, and you can decide for yourself how my trip went. The reason for my visit was actually a funeral. That part sucked. But being with family was a super positive experience. And I felt blessed that I was able to afford the trip, and take the time to pay my last respects. This aspect of the trip was neither bad nor good. It was just part of the journey of life. Very interesting advice you give an certainly an interesting read. It’s always amazing how much unnecessary baggage people carry along with them when traveling just because they aint sure what there are going to need.
