Children need peace
If you want to travel all the sights on vacation, travel with children after 12 years. As the experience of my friends shows, children under 11 years old get tired just like children under 7 years old.
Therefore, it is better not to attend excursions, or visit those that take no more than 1.5-2 hours.
At 4, my daughter and I went on a 5-hour tour, she was tired and fell asleep on the bus. While everyone was visiting the monastery, I watched the sleeping child on the bus. At 5, we went on a shorter tour (3 hours along with the road), she still suffered the first 1.5 hours, then I couldn’t wait until this tour ends.
When my daughter was 6 years old, I refused all the excursions where you are attached to the group and began to organize them myself. In this case, you can stop the tour at any time and go home to relax.
Large complexes are very convenient when traveling with a child, such as water parks and amusement parks. Here you can eat and sit, if you are tired, you do not need to hold on to a group, afraid to get lost, there is a toilet right there.
A trip to a large children’s world will be both pleasure and entertainment for your child. So, if a vacation is conceived in order to surprise a child and you have prepared funds for this, feel free to go to such a store. Especially if there are escalators and fountains, as well as a children’s cafe with slot machines. Your child will have a lot of fun.
Nature, trees, mountains, architecture occupy little children. This is already more for adolescents who begin to appreciate and learn nature. When traveling with a small child, bushes and ponds are simply natural for him, they find nothing unusual either in the section of a leaf, or in the size of a lake or river. So to lead a small child into the arboretum, or into a square around the corner with maples, is equally indifferent to him. But he can swim and delve into the sand endlessly. Stock up with a bucket, shovel, umbrella and you can spend a wonderful day on the beach.
In the end, I want to write a little about all kinds of force majeure circumstances when traveling with a child. It is impossible to make secure from all the troubles. But you can prepare in advance for some. You need to be prepared for the fact that you will have to urgently return home, or your flight will be delayed, postponed, or even canceled. It all takes money, because you need to pay for an extra ticket and you need to eat. An adult may restrain himself, but leaving a child hungry is unacceptable. Therefore, do not spend all the money. Always keep an intact stock with which you will return home.
On our last trip to Germany, we had to fly home 4 days earlier. To do this, it was necessary to go to a neighboring city to the airline’s office, there to redo the ticket. I had to fly out of another city, because at the required date there were no flights from the Arrivals Airport. Those. I needed money for transport to the office, for a surcharge for a new ticket, for transport to the railway station, for a ticket to another city, for a train ticket to the Airport. For food. I had a part of the money, a part was sent by money express transfers from home. Those. You need to discuss this possibility with your relatives in advance and find out how to get the money in the place where you are going.
