What i’ve learned traveling with young children over the past 7 years is that vacations are not relaxing endeavors. Putting these tiny humans in a new environment with a different schedule tends to make them finicky, unpredictable and prone to wild tantrums. When I met Jake and his family at the end of their Hawaiian vacation on the north shore, they were feeling the stress of traveling with three littles. They were tired, a little sunburned, and ready for … well, a vacation.
But there’s an upside to travel with the preschool crowd. It’s the unbridled joy and excitement they take in exploring a new space. That energy is contagious and you start to see the world with fresh eyes. It even grants you full license to act like a kid yourself. Maybe couples massages and lingering over sunset mai tais isn’t in the cards. Even better, you can skip stones, turn cartwheels, and splash through the surf with wild abandon. Vacation like a kid. That’s how we spend their final day on island. They laughed loudly, hugged tightly, and went home fully exhausted.
