Eat Healthier. Exercise more. Get out of debt. Travel.
New Year’s Resolutions. We all have made them. We write them on Post-It notes and stick them to our mirror to remind, and encourage us to keep them going over the long twelve months ahead.
What if traveling around the world was more than just a Post-It note sticking to your mirror? If you had the opportunity to fly around the world for free would you take it? What if you had a family? Would you travel with kids?
Jamie is a stay at home mom of four. Her husband works for the airlines and is able to fly his entire family standby for free. They fly domestic and internationally. While they are traveling, they rent their home on AirBnb to earn extra income.
Traveling with children can be challenging, but the memories made as a family are often times worth the chaos at the airport and the frustrating steps it takes getting to the hotel.
It’s always easier traveling without kids. But I love experiencing new unique things together and seeing the wonder in my kids eyes. —Jamie
Jamie’s older children help out with their younger siblings which helps traveling transitions less chaotic.
Traveling with children exposes them to new cultures and allows them to have a break from their routine at home. It also gives Mom and Dad a break. Jamie takes solo trips and her and her husband take kid-free trips yearly. This gives her a chance to get away from the daily demands that come with being a mom. Hotel house keeping and continental breakfast says it all!
This is the tightrope that Jamie walks.
