Let's start right off by defining what this article is not. This is not an article for seasoned travelers. If you already know what you're doing and have no worries when it comes to travel, you do not need this article. This is also not an article for people who have no desire to travel. Some people are homebodies, and that's totally cool. If you are content at home with all your creature comforts, this article is not aimed at you. And this is not an article for those who love to travel but are simply limited by budget or time constraints.
However, if you are a beginner traveler, and you want to travel but feel overwhelmed when you even start thinking about maybe trying to plan a family vacation, this is for you. You are not alone. Others feel the same worry and even dread when it comes to planning and executing a family trip. But this post is full of tips to help you set yourself up for vacation success.

Traveling with kids can be a challenge, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Emmett and I recently flew to Scotland to visit family and do some site-seeing. Though there are number of places I avoided, like fine art museums and ghost tours, you'll find many toddler- and kid-friendly activities in Scotland - both indoor and outdoor.
I wrote this article with a great deal of help from my cousin Sarah. She and her family live in Scotland and are always on the lookout for fun things to do with kids in Scotland. Sarah writes her own blog called The Walkers Abroad, where you'll find beautiful photos, more ideas for things to do in Scotland, and general advice for navigating life with your offspring.

It's no secret that I love to travel. I mean, that's what this blog is all about. I love seeing new places, meeting new people, trying new foods, and learning about other cultures. I love the destinations I visit. But the older I get, and especially now that we're traveling with our son, I like the actual travel to the destination less and less. Don't get me wrong. We're still going to travel, and we'll make the most of every hurdle and every challenge and every tiny airplane seat and every hotel room that's laid out all wrong, but if I had the power of Jeannie to cross my arms and blink things into existence, or if I ruled the world with absolute power [insert evil laugh], there are definitely things I would change about the travel industry.
