Start Traveling With Your Kids When They Are Young

I truly believe that good travelers can be made. I don’t just believe that good travelers can be made; I believe they must be made. So we need to start traveling with kids when they’re young.

I took my first cross-country trip when I was six weeks old. My mom packed me up onto a plane to fly the two of us across the country from California to Michigan for my uncle’s wedding. When the three of us moved to Michigan the following year, I had officially had the traveling bug thrust upon me. For the next 18 years of my life, my parents would take the four of us girls to nearly all corners of the continental U.S. More often than not we would take those trips to visit family, but even that took us to Canada, upstate New York, Texas, California, Washington, and everywhere in between.
