So you’re going on a tropical vacation. Hooray! Soon your daily stressors will be washed away by the warm, sandy tide. But first, what do you pack? How do you deal with long plane flights with small children?
Never fear! I’m here with the answers! (Well, most of the answers. Okay, some. A few?)
We just returned from a glorious vacation to the Westin Maui, and it was perfect in every way. In fact, I think my body is on the mainland, but my brain is still in Hawaii. What I love most about beach vacations is that you don’t need to pack a lot for yourself. In fact, I only truly needed 6 essentials while vacationing in Maui.
A beach tote, 2 bathing suits, sunblock, a few maxi dresses, a crushable sun hat, and flip flops. Seriously, mamas. Don’t feel compelled to over pack – you can get through day and evening with these items. (I also brought a pair of gold sandals to wear in the evening.)
And what about the long plane flight with your kiddos? Well, that one takes a little more planning, but is completely doable. (Hint: invest in an iPad.) Here are some of my tips, as well as a look at our first day in Maui.
