kids mealFlying with kids isn’t easy. There are a few things that one can do to make it a bit more manageable when flying with little ones.

We always bring along various forms of entertainment to (hopefully) keep the kids busy. Some obvious items are tablets like an iPad or Kindle, stickers, small toys and special snacks.

For us, the most annoying part of a flight (with kids) can be meal time. Continue reading ALWAYS Pre-Order A Kids Meal For Your Little Ones For Upcoming Flights

This Will Have Your Kid Not Wanting To Leave The Museum

museumDuring our travels, we like to visit a museum or two during the course of our trips. We try to find a museum that’s geared towards kids, but many we visit aren’t.

Art museums aren’t always the most fun for kids and it can definitely be annoying to hear questions like when are we leaving or are we almost finished constantly!

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from a trip to France and Monaco. During our trip, we were surprised by how much Lucas enjoyed the Musee d’ Orsay in Paris. While in Nice, we visited the Chagall Museum. Continue reading This Will Have Your Kid Not Wanting To Leave The Museum

A Family Visit to the Park Hyatt St Kitts

Park Hyatt St KittsIn November 2017, I wrote a post sharing Where Kim and I redeemed our four Hyatt Visa Free Nights.

After much thought, we decided on using them for a stay at the new Park Hyatt St Kitts.

During our day there, we spent most of the time at Magic Kingdom while also making a stop at Epcot .
