Family Vacation Road Trip Planning: Departure Time - Home Ever After

Welcome to our new series, Family Vacation Road Trip Planning!  Over the next few weeks, you’ll get tried and true tips for planning the best family vacation road trip from a mom of 4.

Road trips are the preferred way to travel for most families. The average family takes one or more road trips every year. Some parents welcome a road trip as quality family time, while others view it as a necessary evil to travel from one place to another!

If you take the latter position, there is a good chance that you may find your road trip more enjoyable if you follow some of the travel tips  in our family vacation road trip planning series.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Summer is dead ahead! Vacation planning mode has begun. Start by gathering nuggets of information to make a road trip more fun.

Why Travel Makes Us Better Designers (and Chefs and Scientists)

 

This is what happens when you cross the border from Akçakale, Turkey, into Syria. Specifically, Syria in the Summer of 2010, not long before things fell apart.  The first thing you should know about is the heat. It is incomprehensible heat. Impossible heat. As you queue, there will be surprise that you are American. Border Guard #1 will ask to speak to Border Guard #2, and Border Guard #2 will ask to speak to his supervisor, who will ask his supervisor and his supervisor’s supervisor to examine your passport. There will be intense scrutiny over every stamp. You will reassure them. These reassurances will be in vain because the guards will, of course, not understand anything you say. It’s best just to smile and be patient. Your belongings will be under constant threat of search, but they will not be searched. A presidential portrait will loom. An old fan will spin slowly, pointlessly. When you do finally cross, insha'allah, it will be to no fanfare. There will be no exotic fruit stands. No taxi taunts taunting. It’s not that kind of border, see.

Sharla Shults's insight:

Not so much the location that is of interest in this article but the reflections on momen-to-moment happenings are priceless! Threshold moments, you might say.

Why We Go to the Met Every Sunday (and Have for 60 Years)

Why We Go to the Met Every Sunday (and Have for 60 Years) | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

To constantly inspire breakthrough conceptual thinking, my wife and I go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, religiously, every Sunday. Lou Dorfsman, design chief for CBS Radio and later the CBS Television Network for over 40 years, once said, “In reality, creativity is the ability to reach inside yourself and drag forth from your very soul an idea.”

Going on a vacation? Plan on visiting a museum...walk in the footsteps of history!

An Irish Honeymoon

An Irish Honeymoon | Road Tripping | Scoop.it

It seems like a dream after almost 23 years. Even while we were there, driving the twisting country roads -- inevitably lost -- Ireland had a dreamlike quality that made it perfect for a honeymoon....

 

Friends were surprised at our plans to honeymoon in Ireland. “But you aren’t Irish,” they said, foreheads wrinkled with puzzlement. Why do people assume the only reason to go to Ireland is to look for roots? In Ireland, everyone asked if we were Irish. When we said we weren’t, they would say “Are you sure?” We said we were sure. It turned out one of us was wrong.

 

Ireland was wonderful. From Dublin to Sligo, through Shannon, Galway, Cashel and all the lovely cities and villages in between, everyone we met was friendly and welcoming. When folks learned we were honeymooners, we were treated to free rounds of drinks, desserts, and upgraded accommodations — at no charge. Even on the airplane, we were moved up to first class. Way to go.

 

We stayed in bed and breakfasts. Using the National Tourist Board

guidebook and a road map, we’d zero in on a destination and phone ahead. Every place we stayed was spotlessly clean and comfortable, although often tiny by American standards.

Sharla Shults's insight:

One day I will go to Ireland!
