Embracing the Unknown… with Kids

I’ve mentioned in the past that traveling with kids adds an extra degree of difficulty (or twelve). Right now we’re getting ready to go on a trip to Europe where our plan is to non-rev to somewhere in Europe.

We eventually have to get to Venice to get on our cruise; but goal #1 is getting somewhere, anywhere in Europe and then going from wherever we are to Venice.

IMG_4868This lack of a definite plan bothers me. Not because I’ve never traveled spontaneously before, but because I’m going to be traveling spontaneously with children.

It’s likely the kids and I will have to leave earlier because flights tend to be better in the middle of the week and my husband can’t leave before the weekend.

I know, it’s much easier for him to travel over the weekend by himself and he’ll much more likely get to where we need to be by doing that. On the flip side of that I could very likely be getting on a plane with no idea what we’re going to do when we land.

My husband said he’ll look through everything and reserve all the appropriate transportation/hotel options once we know where we are going. So I’m really hoping whatever flight we get on that they’ll have an international internet option in the air; because I would like a few hours notice if we’re going to be flying, taking a train, or staying where we land for a few days.

Me traveling without the kids would normally be all over this; but it’s a little harder for me to accept it with the little people coming along for the ride with me. I know I just need to let my Type-A side go a bit and hope for the best; but that’s definitely easier said than done.

Tiff's first big vacation was a Caribbean cruise when she was six. She first started getting interested in deals when her husband showed her the tricks to getting bought off your flights back in the late 90s. She started flying nonrev when they got married; the first unusual nonrev she did was in '05 when her family flew through San Juan to get to Dallas from Philly. They have two boys, ages 11 and 7, who she usually drags along on their travels and hopes they will grow up to love traveling as much as she does.
