Family Travel

Just thinking about my first trip alone with my five children made me terrified. Would I be able to pack everything they needed? What if the kids got on the other passengers’ nerves? Would I be kicked off the plane?! Of course, I’m only (slightly) kidding. But I was worried about family travel, to say the least. However, I was able to survive a flight with my five children and still live to tell the tale! Here, I share with you essential packing lists for kids, the best backpacks for kids when travelling, how to get your children to sleep on planes, and fun children activities for a plane ride! Watch my videos here for advice on how to prepare for the next family travel adventure!
