Traveling with kids can be fun and immensely rewarding. And sometimes it’s the simple stuff that’s often free or very inexpensive that provides the most rewarding times of all as a family.
Years ago, before we had kids, we used to visit countries, cities and beautiful places around the world, often on a whim. Friends and colleagues with families would often say to “enjoy it while you can, when you have kids it will change everything”.
Well that’s true, but it’s often for the better!
We’re now a family with three young kids who love traveling, discovering, and doing things along the way.
Our aim at KidsCameraGo is to share with you some of the places to go that we love, and some of the things it’s easy to do that the kids will enjoy and that aren’t expensive.
It obviously involves cost to take a family somewhere, especially if it requires flights etc, but we like to find the places to go and things to do that are great fun for all of us, and that don’t involve paying £100’s for a day’s entertainment at a leisure park!
Why Kids Camera Go ?
When our first two kids were about 3 and 1, we took them to Australia for 8 weeks. Every time as we left the house I’d say my checklist out loud – “Kids, Camera, Phone, Keys, Wallet“, and then we’d “Go….”
Before long the three year old started repeating “Kids, Camera” and his favourite part “Go!”… and that became part of our routine too!
Then we’d open the door and the day’s adventure and discovery would start.
Even now, several years later, as we’re about to head out somewhere he repeats it (although I’m not sure he’s just taking the mickey out of me nowadays!!)
Enjoying Traveling With Kids
We love going places with the kids and seeing them enjoy themselves. We also love “our time” as adults and being able to sit back having a chat over a coffee. We love discovering busy little streets, fantastic little coffee shops, hidden away coves or simply choosing delicious foods at the local shops to cook in the holiday house over a glass of wine.
We don’t see the kids as getting in the way of what we want to do, and we often find ways to combine stuff that they enjoy doing while we enjoy what we like.
