Tips to Get Ready for Family Vacation

Aug 17, 2007
It is very much helpful to get well-planned before going out for family vacation. This article will help you on how to make a well-planned family outing.

We plan our wardrobe with an eye on the season and the climate, of course, but more than that we try to be travel wise and take only clothes that will pack compactly and will not wrinkle too much. If you are traveling with boys this is fairly easy. Polo shirts with either long or short sleeves as well as "T" shirts can be packed into an unbelievably small space. This leaves more space for the few dress shirts and other necessary clothing.

By this time our family is so well informed and so enthusiastic about the Navajo Indian that when summer comes the entire group is all set for the well-planned vacation. The travel time will not be dull or tiresome to the younger children because they will be aware of what to look for. A child is a poor traveler only when he is bored and time hangs heavy on his hands. A well-planned and discussed trip makes even a young child interested in the changing scenes.

For the year when our budget just can't squeeze out a vacation trip we use our travel technique for family fun on a different scale. For instance, a trip delightful to think about might be a trip to the moon. Silly you say? Not a bit of it. A family of youngsters is always highly interested in the sky world. Such a trip was the beginning of our Jim's interest in astronomy. We got books from the library that introduced us to the heavens. The boys were delighted to find the big dipper, the little dipper, Bruin, and the various other constellations.

Of course, Bob couldn't figure the cost of such a trip, but our mathematician got a kick out of computing distances, the speed of the rockets and the time it would take to reach the moon if such a rocket could go all the way.

Our astronomical interest took us to the University for views of the heavens through their telescope. The youngsters learned of Chicago's planetarium which we were fortunate enough to visit at a later time. If a trip to the moon ever does become an actuality I'm afraid our youngsters will be clamoring to go, for their interest in the sky world is very real.

Whether we plan an imaginary trip or some honest-to-goodness one, we have found that there is no more satisfying family fun than getting ready for it. Our vacation fun is really threefold; the fun of planning and anticipating, the actual trip, and the reminiscing during the following weeks and months.
