What are the challenges of traveling with children and what are the positives?
I only find traveling with toddlers a challenge, as they just DON’T want to sit still on an airplane seat. As long as you don’t mind making new friends while walking up and down the aisle, you will be fine! Once they get to a certain age (3+) it is just a joy to travel with children. They are curious about everything and have the concentration and patience to sit and watch a film on a flight – which is a game changer! We took Ava to Bali (a 22-hour journey) when she was 3.5 years old and she loved the whole experience.
What does saying ‘YES!’ mean to you?
I feel that parenting has changed so much. Children can now be a part of all aspects of your life and you can share your lives and learn from each other. They have a lot to teach us and if you can be open to the journey of parenthood, be present and say ‘YES!’ to new experiences together, it can be so much fun! You don’t get a second chance to do it all over again, so why not give them (and you) a childhood to remember!
You recently traveled to Morocco as a family. What made you choose this destination?
We chose Morocco because we thought it would provide a good balance between a cultural experience and some winter fun in the sun. Plus, Moroccan interiors are a dream, so getting some added visual inspiration was a nice added bonus. It is only a 3.5-hour flight from London Gatwick and there is no time difference… so no jet lag either!
