Planning Family and Group Travel

January 10, 2011

My interest in family travel and group travel  began with the planning of my own trips with relatives and friends.  I quickly learned arranging group travel is full of challenges that I had not met when I traveled as a single person: arranging transportation, accommodations, activities and eating becomes more complicated.  And planning larger multigenerational  trips with the grandparents, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews is even more tricky.  I am able to tap into my own personal travel experience, as well as my background in corporate event planning, to arrange all aspects of family and group vacations.  I am a firm believer in the value of traveling together: traveling offers a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time together with friends and loved ones, it provides learning and bonding experiences, and through travel family and friends can build memories to share forever.  Of course family and group travel also needs to be fun and rejuvenating, and with proper guidance planning, it can be!

One of my favorite ways to travel in a group is to take a cruise.  Family and group cruises allow options for people of different ages to enjoy varied activities, to share experiences together, or to have some time alone.  On a cruise, travelers can enjoy many destinations without the work of packing and unpacking, arranging transportation and searching out activities and eating for varied age groups in the party with different interests and needs.  I have personally been on several trips with large groups throughout Europe, the Caribbean and Alaska and I cherish these trips as some of my best travel experiences.

So, travel and go together!  And use a travel agent to help you get the most out of your experience.
