Traveling to the far reaches of the globe offers some of the most powerful and meaningful experiences of a lifetime. But, truthfully, at day’s end many of the most enriching moments we enjoy are those spent in the company of people we most love. In the best of circumstances, family members top this list. It is no surprise that interest in family and multi-generation travel has been exploding in recent years as has the demand and opportunities.
My personal investment in family vacations paid handsome rewards in the feedback of my own children, now long grown. In passing, I had asked each of them to reflect upon favorite childhood memories. Neither responded with a specific holiday or birthday celebration, but rather with recollections of family trips we had taken to Hawaii, Alaska, ski trips, Costa Rica and Africa among our best. This pattern of enjoying family time on the road has now enveloped a new generation that includes my three grandchildren.
The camaraderie of shared memories is extraordinary and the bonds created by focusing on one another in the midst of fun and discovery are invaluable. I cannot encourage you enough to gather those you love and consider how and where you best envision your family members at relaxation and at play. The possibilities are countless but the commitment of time and energy could not be more wisely spent. Unforgettable images and heartfelt emotions imprinted on each one. That intangible link that draws us near and keeps us close to one another. There is nothing more special in the world…
It would be my honor to help you create lasting memories with your own family through travel. Get in touch to discuss your needs and dreams!
