Vacation Planning and Influences
When it comes to how we plan our vacations, it’s a mixture of tradition and technology: My husband loves maps and showing our children how to plan the “old fashioned” way. In fact, we recently took an RV camping trip with our path highlighted on a map so the kids could help navigate. But when it comes to selecting activities, we enjoy using the internet to read reviews and help narrow down activities and destinations.
We also talk to our friends when making a decision about where to travel. We love hearing others share their firsthand experiences about destinations. For example, we recently chatted with some friends about their experience at a National Park and realized that we might want to wait a few years before visiting that particular destination so the kids would be a bit older and enjoy it to the fullest.
