Family Travel Tip: Don’t Forget To Bring…

family travelLucas and I went on our 2nd Father Son Trip to Mexico in July 2016.

While all-inclusive resorts aren’t my thing, since I won the trip how could I refuse to go! I also knew that Lucas would have a great time since he just loves playing in the water and in the sand.

To make the trip a bit more exciting for me, I set up a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage Site that I had yet to visit, Chichen Itza, located in Mexico’s Yucatan.

During the visit, I committed what I’d consider to be the biggest family travel mistake I’ve made to date. Continue reading Family Travel Tip: Don’t Forget To Bring…

When flying Air Berlin we got an interesting treat at the end of the flight. The flight attendants gave out really tasty chocolate hearts while leaving the plane.

The best bet is to come prepared with your own stash of snacks just in case the selection on board isn’t so great. Kim and I try to bring along some snack for ourself and Lucas during each trip. It’s definitely best not to be caught unprepared (especially when traveling with a little one).

While on an early morning flight with Southwest the snacks were not the usual honey roasted peanuts. Instead, we were each given a bag of cookies and some pop- chips.
I took a quick glance at the package of cookies and then put them in my seat-back pocket to save for later on during the flight.

When I went to open them up I was a bit surprised. I thought that I had read that they were plain cookies.
