Happy Monday! I am so excited kick off the week by announcing my continued partnership with Alamo as a Chief Travel Mom (CTM). I absolutely love traveling, especially with my family. Having already enjoyed many adventures with my son, as a single Mom, I am happy to have also passed the travel bug on to my two nieces. Going on vacation with tweens and teens is an adventure in itself!
Having new experiences and seeing new places is great, but it’s the family bonding time that I love the most about family travel. Planning and taking family vacations seemed daunting at times, especially as a single parent, but please don’t let that stop you. I wouldn’t trade those experiences and special moments for anything.
Last summer we included the family pets on our beach vacation. Traveling with pets posed a whole new set of challenges, and took some extra planning. It was totally worth it though!
Alamo, myself, and fellow Chief Travel Moms are taking family travel to the next level. We want to help you go beyond basic family travel, and create the kinds of experiences that you and your kids will remember forever. I will be working with a couple of the other Chief Travel Moms to focus on “Navigating Mom Problems” and providing solutions to family travel issues. Some of the CTMs are what you would call “Laughing Moms” and they’ll be celebrating the funny moments of family travel. We also have “Moms for Moms” who will help connect you with other travel-loving Moms and show how travel can increase family bonding.
Beginning this holiday season and through the summer of next year, I look forward to chatting with you about the challenges that come with family travel, ways to overcome those challenges, and of course the many benefits of traveling with your family.
