The benefits of family travel are endless, as are the adventures, bonds and memories that a great family vacation can bring.

All of the smiles, laughs, excitement, and wonder that traveling with your family brings makes it worthwhile to plan, mentally prepare for and take these trips. Because you know kids will be kids no matter where they are. So it is our job to be prepared for anything to happen.

No matter how high my hopes are, there are always 20 things I can count on that will happen when I travel with my family.
