Touring: Child Travel
Child travel can be one of the hardest, most challenging forms of travel although it can also be one of the most rewarding. Parenthood is universal and therefore children can help to break-down cultural barriers often associated with travel as children are loved throughout the world as a rule.

Looking after children can be difficult and stressful enough without being on the road in a country with new smells, extreme weather, strange customs and cultures. Children do not warrant being treated the same as adults when they travel as the new world they are experiencing is that much more daunting to them than it is to you. It is bad enough taking a child on a relatively long road journey by car, let alone accompanying them on a long haul flight from London to Auckland. Therefore understanding and preparation are vital key elements to successful child travel.

You'll need the patience of a saint to answer the multitudes of questions you'll likely be asked by your children as they discover something completely new. Remember travelling can be tiring which may cause some irritation. It is best not to try and cram too many sightseeing ideas into one day and it is definitely best not to visit too many museums or similar.

Try to involve children as much as possible in pre-departure preparations and remember that the trip should be as exciting before as the actual participation. This will also give your child a sense of expectation as to what is in store on the road. Pack items that your child finds comfort in. This could make all the difference in a situation when it seems nothing will please the child. Make sure children are well prepared medically and are in good physical shape to travel. Appropriate inoculations for children are just as important if not more so than they are for adults.
