Hey, It Could Happen…


I had always wondered how difficult it really is to travel with a child. Is it easier with an infant compared to a toddler? I ask this, not because there’s a screaming baby on the plane. There isn’t. In fact I don’t see any children at all. It was always something I wondered and given my pension for travel, if I had children I wouldn’t want that to be a hindrance. I had heard that traveling with children isn’t THAT difficult, but I’m just not sure. Can they be conditioned? Obviously, I have no children or wouldn’t be so naive. Is it a state of mind? A ‘what are you willing to tolerate’ kind of thing? Or is it a skill? If I decided to have a child (I think I just heard a few people that I know choke) I wouldn’t want to give up the passion I have for travel. Can the two coexist peacefully, and be fulfilling?
We are approaching London and as I look out the window at the little streets and bridges with the tiny red buses and even tinier cars I am reminded of the Richard Scary books I loved so much when I was young. What child wouldn’t love the world version of that?

    • Travelling with children can be a challenge. But, usually not as bad as one thinks. Having a child with a disability, I was unsure on how she would handle a flight to Florida to visit Disney. She ended up doing great (I tried to prepare the best I could) and enjoyed the ride. That’s not to say there weren’t other bumps during our travel time. Enjoy your trip! Looking forward to hearing about it!

  1. Some of my best trips have been with my children. I love the amazed look on their faces when they see something new. Have a wonderful trip!

  2. All I can say to that is Trains, Planes and Automobiles my daughter always has loved traveling and learns so much on every trip.
