Traveling has always been a big part of my life. Growing up a pilot’s daughter, I took my first flight at only 5 weeks old to visit my grandparents. I honestly believe all the family vacations we took, the places we traveled and the experiences we gained played a major role into the person I am today.
Because traveling played such a major role in my life, it is important to me to give our son, Knox, the same adventures and experiences. So one of our New Year resolutions is my #AlamoDriveHappy resolution – to give Knox a new experience on every trip we take. This is important to me because I want to make sure Knox experiences the cultures, the food and the people of the places we visit. It’s a great big world out there with so much to offer so it is our goal to veer off the ‘tourist’ route and do something a local would do on every vacation.
Through my past Alamo post and during our Twitter chat, we talked a lot about #MomProblems that come with traveling and how we can prevent our trips from being ‘basic’. It is my hope through this resolution of sorts that it will take our family travel beyond basic while also solving a few of those problems we discussed. It is sure to solve the boredom aspect because who could be bored when you are experiencing something new and exciting?!
