“Decide how you want to feel, and go wherever it takes to feel that way.” — Andy Hayes
So, in your mind, you have decided that you need a vacation. You ask your kids where they would want to go, and without blinking, they either say Disneyland or settle on staying at home playing Minecraft. But you know better than that – and you have a basic feel for where you would want to travel as a family. Whether it is history and culture that you crave, or vast landscapes, a familiarity with the animal kingdom or to experience luxury and good cuisine. And sometimes you just don’t want to be bothered and want to be cut-off from sightseeing of any kind.
Let’s start narrowing down what would make sense and why, and when would be the best time to visit those destinations. What would be some interesting family vacation ideas? As with everything on this website, our recommendations and tips flow primarily from personal experience. So, even though the world is our backyard to explore, we narrow down options based on where we have been, and what we have seen and experienced.
