Here are some essential tricks learned from my personal experience and following which, in my consideration, can make you enjoy your vacation with the kids more:
1. Pack light. Believe me, you and your kids can survive a whole week with just one spare pair of clothes. How would it be possible? Just choose accommodation with a washing machine. You can even take some clothes that you wouldn’t mind leaving behind somewhere on the way.
I noticed that we always buy new clothes for us and the kids during our trips, so we all end up with several spare clothes, which eventually leads to stressful preparation to fit everything in the bagpacks. Moving around with just a regular bag is HEAVEN! It is as simple as that to put the clothes that you have on you in the washing machine at some point and go out with the new clothes. Then at the end of the trip you can just leave your “old” clothes out of the bags and that’s it!
2. Be light on plans. Don’t make big plans, just write ideas of what you would wish to see and visit and go with the flow of the everyday emotions and desires. Without too much expectations and ambitions you will enjoy every moment with the kids, even if you just walk in the park. Learning simply to enjoy the different air and the presence of your kids around you no matter where – priceless!
