Vacations are not always really vacations. Traveling can take a lot out of you. Throw in a kid or two and it’s like running a marathon. Pacing is the key to success, especially when you’re on the type of trip I like to call an adventure. Walking the family along the Great Wall of China or listening to your kids plot how to play tag with sheep in Northern Ireland, fall into the adventure category.
In bed late, moving and shaking early, and often exhausted enough to sleep for at least part of the plane flight home are just a few of the signs of a good adventure.
