Life Lessons from Family Vacations is full of inspirational travel gems—simple yet riveting messages, but ones we all need to hear over and over again. In this internet age, where too often kids are on cell phones or watching movies in cars when traveling, Life Lessons from Family Vacations reminds us to connect with the outside world rather than a screen—smell the food in front of us, look at what is around us, or listen to what is going on. At the same time, allowing children to explore without fear (although with good judgment) will nurture a life-long curiosity and thirst for knowledge about our world. Lastly, the friends one makes abroad, such as Lawrence from South Africa, can be life-changing and we have much to learn from those whose lives and countries are very different from our own. — Antonia Neubauer, president, Myths and Mountains, Inc.
We just love, love, love the wonderful insight and sentiments that underpin — Simon and Susan Veness, VenessTravelMedia.com
