Family travel can be overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be! I’m here to show you that you can do it too.

Whether your family homeschools or private schools or public school or uses a combination, travel can be a part of the curriculum. As much as I would love to pack my family into an RV and take off across the country or travel the world for a year, neither of these are an option for our family at this time. But that doesn’t mean we can’t pack travel into our year — and you can to.

Don’t overlook day trips around your state while you’re waiting for Italy. Don’t miss the chance to travel a couple of states over for the week because it’s not at the other end of your country. Don’t put off car trips because the kids are too little or you think they won’t remember it. And don’t feel like you have to stay home because the other parent or family member can’t come help you.

Whether you have a day or a week or several months, do what you can and make the most of it. If you want travel to be a real part of your family culture, just do it!
