Have you ever forgotten something for a trip? I have. For years my husband watched as I forgot sunglasses, swimsuits, eye glasses, sandals, and even pajamas when we took vacations.

New York City is one of the most exciting places on earth, but the kind of fun you have changes dramatically when you bring your kids along. Instead of hitting up midnight shows and the hottest high-concept eateries, you get a chance to see a very different city, a brightly-colored place full of magic, fun, and excitement that offers up a seemingly endless supply of new experiences.
Top Activities For Children 10 and Up in NYC

A diverse sampling of National Parks and sound infrastructure in the form of medical care and potable water make Costa Rica an excellent choice for adventurous families.
Here are eleven excursions ranging from easy to extreme, beginning near San José then branching out to the country’s remote enclaves. Even in well-populated areas, the government has neglected the roadways because they have had no need to transport arms or soldiers since the military was abolished in 1948. Therefore, your adventure travel experience will include enduring arduous routes, but getting there is half the fun, right?
San José is not for the adventurous. It acts as a transit hub for backpackers flying in from all over the world who fan out to explore Central America. However, there are activities that families can do near the capital that do not require nerves of steel.
Within easy distance of San José, Volcan Poás National Park is the closest and easiest volcano to begin adventuring. Kids will find the walk to the crater a cinch. A short leisurely hike along the trails in the forest is not difficult for kids who are fit and have done some easy hiking....

New Caledonia is a French territory about a thousand kilometers east of Australia, comprising of the main island Grande Terre and groups of smaller islands: the Loyalty Islands, the Chesterfield Islands, the Belep archipelago and the Isle of Pines. These islands are surrounded by a massive barrier reef and this is still one of the most pristine areas on the planet. New Caledonia is a French colony and it is an interesting mixture of native, Asian and French culture. Surprisingly, this is also one of the most family-friendly regions in the world, which makes it great for vacationing with kids. Here are some of the things you can do if you’re travelling to New Caledonia with kids.

Since you will most likely land in Noumea first, the capital of New Caledonia, you can start by exploring the city - and all it has to offer - and then later you can go on and explore the other islands, far away beaches, climb mountains and find other kinds of amusement.
A great way to introduce your kids to marine life is to take them to Noumea’s amazing aquarium. It is abundant with...

As director of ALLTRACKS Academy, provider of ski instructor courses in Whistler, I’ve been visiting this leviathan of Canadian ski resorts for over a decade. Although I do visit alone on business, I often travel with my wife and two children, currently aged 8 and 10. As such, I’d like to think I can offer some first hand knowledge on what makes for an amazing ski holiday to Whistler with young children in winter.
With kids in Whistler
Here’s my top ten tips (with plenty of input from the kids too)!
Obviously first and foremost Whistler is a ski resort, and so if you’re visiting anytime from November to May, skiing should be on the cards. Whistler has an incredible ski school (Whistler Kids) that will get your little ones moving on snow safely. For the particularly young, the school combines an introduction to skiing with lots of other fun activities such as building snowmen, sledging and indoor games when they get tired or the weather worsens. For children who are already strong skiers, there is still plenty to learn. The enthusiastic and competent ski coaches will ensure that your kids progress as far as possible during their vacation building...
Camping is a wonderful way to explore the great outdoors. Spending a night sleeping underneath the stars is an ideal way to escape city life for a weekend and see some beautiful parts of the natural world.
Of course, we want to enjoy the experience with the whole family and spend some quality time together. However, the thought of sleeping in a tent or going somewhere without a TV may not be appealing to children. So how can you keep the kids happy while camping?
From our experience over the years, we’ve learnt some great ways to keep the children happy while camping.
Wherever you are camping, there are some great games you can incorporate into your trip using nature. Of course, the games will vary for different ages but here are some of our tip suggestions for those who are under about the age of 12.
Treasure Hunt - Woodland areas are a super place for a treasure hunt! Find some photos on the internet before you leave and print them out so the children can have a photo to match up with what they find. You could also hide some treats for them in the forest or some odd fun things for them to use later, such as glow...
So many people say they want to travel, but they don’t because they have kids. You know what? Kids are flexible and if you really want to, of course you can visit that far away destination. Don’t use your kids as an excuse. Naturally kids change the way we travel, but that’s no reason not to go!
We’ve traveled for most of last year. We spend two months in Dahab, Egypt and eight months traveling around South-East Asia. When we left The Netherlands, our home country, our son was 18 months old. Sure, traveling with a small child is very different from traveling as a couple. But different doesn’t mean it wasn’t fun! It was a fantastic experience and we would go again in a heartbeat.
Both of us have a serious case of the travel bug. And we’ve backpacked (and later flashpacked) a fair bit before our son was born, both solo and as a couple. We always dreamed about leaving Holland for a longer time, doing a world trip or living and working abroad for a while. One of my favourite quotes says that you’ll regret the things that you didn’t do much more than the ones you did. But somehow the timing was never quite right. Steady...
