Around the World with Kids
Two years ago I traveled around the world in two weeks with my 10-year-old daughter, and this year I did the same with my 10-year-old son – although he and I stretched the trip to 18 days. In both cases my kids chose our destinations and did most of the planning. I simply booked what they wanted and then had an amazing time on our travels! The itinerary for the trip with my daughter was LA-Orlando-Paris-Dubai-Oman-Borobudur-Bali-Sydney-LA. My son and I traveled LA-Copenhagen-Greenland-Copenhagen-Seychelles-Abu Dhabi-Mumbai-Singapore-LA.
My posts on our two trips are at:
- Around the World in Two Weeks (Planned by a 10-Year-Old)
- Around the World (Again!) with a 10-Year-Old!
In the posts I go into detail on each destination and talk a little bit about the logistics, but they aren’t meant to be step-by-step guides on planning an around the world trip. So I wrote a post for Travelocity on everything that went into our planning, including choosing destinations, dates and direction, then finding flights and activities, and finally choosing a theme and packing. I’d love to inspire others to go on similarly crazy trips! If that’s you, here’s your How To guide!

I always have fun writing for Travelocity, but this one was particularly fun. Enjoy! And please come back here and let me know what destinations you would include in a 2-3 week around the world trip!
