We firmly believe that wanderlust is a gene you can pass down through future generations of your family. It’s also one of the best things you can give your children; the gift of travel. Regardless of if you want to pack up all your belongings for a nomadic life, or start venturing near or far during summer holidays, travel opens your children up to a world of possibilities. The world will only expand their minds and desire for adventure.
We now find Instagram to be the most inspirational way to find new travel ideas and family travel tips. Check out these great Instagram accounts of traveling families to find out how you too can make traveling family-friendly and have a ton of fun bringing the kids along.

Our Family Travel Adventures
On a family vacation to Hawaii, while having so much fun as a family, Jen, Rich and their three boys started talking about the loads of busy work that the school would assign for the one missed week. Then they realized all the valuable lessons that they could learn while traveling, started researching and took a leap of faith. They have been traveling full time since 2013.

The McEvoys are always outdoors exploring another corner of the world. Watching their outdoor adventures, you can really see how much fun they are having. Wether they are in the PNW or on a cruise in the caribbean, they want to be exploring everywhere. I love their view on family travel: “When you travel with kids you are giving them something that can never be taken away – experience, exposure, and a way of life.”
