Bon Voyage! International Travel with Children


Baby’s First Passport

Regardless of whether it’s for the first or fifty-first time, one can’t help but laugh while watching Clark Griswold and his family endlessly and hopelessly circle Big Ben and Parliament in National Lampoon’s European Vacation. However, when imagining their own crew in the same situation, most parents’ laughter quickly turns to nauseating anxiety.

Traveling internationally with kids can seem a daunting proposition at first. In fact, after 30 seconds of consideration, many parents likely decide to simplify their adventures by heading for the shores of the continent on which they reside. But fear not. With the right planning (and attitude), traveling overseas with children is not only doable, it’s enjoyable, and it will provide lifelong memories unlike any other.
