As you all know our family loves to travel. We first traveled with our eldest, Jordyn, at 6 weeks old. While on maternity leave I traveled with both girls to Cartagena, Colombia when Kennedy was just 10 weeks old. At times we hear negative feedback on traveling with our kids so young. Some people feel as if it’s a waste of money because they don’t think the girls will remember or that it is too difficult to travel with young kids.
Despite the naysayers, we’ve continued to show families who value travel that it is possible. We prove that while traveling with kids takes some adjustments it can be easily done with the right tips and that kids remember much more than we give them credit for. We visited Las Vegas two and a half years ago when Jordyn was two and she still talks about the trip and specifically the day she saw the “water show” at the Bellagio. I’m a 30-year-old woman and I can barely remember what I ate for dinner last week so I’d say her memories of our travels are quite strong.
We are so excited and humbled to be partnering with Alamo Rent A Car as their Chief Travel Guide. Here on The Traveling Child I write a lot about the details of our travels and tips on destinations but not much on why we travel. Throughout the next year I’ll be sharing stories on Alamo’s Scenic Route Hub on what motivates our travels. While the entire stories will be published directly on The Scenic Route website you’ll see a preview here on The Traveling Child to notify you of new posts.
As travelers who value affordable options, Alamo is the perfect car rental company for us to partner with. Drive Happy with Alamo and join the free Alamo Insiders Program to save 5% on their already low rates. We’re looking forward to taking you along The Scenic Route with us.
