Gideon and Philip of Quivertree have been traveling with their kids for over 17 years covering six continents. Here are lessons they’ve picked up over the years:
"We’re not talking about the things you see everywhere, like finding theme parks or restaurants with kids menus – we’re talking about real life family travel lessons we’ve picked up along the way. Our mantra we’ve developed over the years is that if your children are not happy traveling, you won’t be either. So if there’s a site or museum you really want to see, or a restaurant you absolutely have to go to, think twice about how happy your children will be. Because if they’re miserable, you will be too. You may need to improvise, but it’s worth it. Ultimately, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of discovery with your children" (Gideon and Philip, April 2011)
