7 Questions to Ask Before Traveling with Another Family
Last fall we had a blast traveling with our relatives, visiting from afar. But co-family travel hasn't always been our forte'. Many years ago we went on a vacation with another family. Our kids were friends and we knew each other from the pre-school. I'm not sure when the plan was hatched to vacation together. It occurred over a dinner party or maybe during a park playdate. Our kids got along wonderfully! The guys seemed to get along too! It seemed like a great idea at the time.
Ten years later? We're still not talking to each other.
Let's just say we had a lot less in common than we thought.
We've been wary about co-vacationing ever since. But we're social creatures. I have such fond memories of childhood summers at our lake house, with friends and family there to join us. I know co family travel can be quite magical. So we've jumped back on the horse, back into the RV and taken our show on the road with a friendly entourage on multiple occasions since then with much better results than that first trip. Here are some of the questions we ask ourselves, before we travel with others.
